Default Post Your 2012 NFL Draft Sleepers Here

I haven't been this excited bout a Draft in years and although I don't follow college football that closely, I have watched Dwight Jones (NC - WR) the past two years and think whoever gets him in the 4th-7th rounds will get a solid pro who has a knack for making huge plays. I don't know if we will draft any skill set players other than maybe a QB or RB, but I wouldn't be upset if we took a chance on Jones. He is big 6-4, 225, fast for his size, and doesn't drop many balls. I honestly don't know why he is projected so late.

There isn't much youtube footage of him but this is a catch he made last year in my hometown of Greenville, NC against East Carolina. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-2kVzXp4Ys


Who are you hoping we grab in the late rounds?

I like Turbin as well. His catching ability makes him a nice fit with Peyton Manning at quarterback.

I like Bequette as well and he could slide due to his injury. Although if he is as tough as his ole college coach, he will go back to work just days after a two passenger motorcycle wreck while not wearing a helmet.

WR Danny Coale will not be a star player in the NFL, but there is something about him that makes me think he will play 10 years in the NFL and help somebody.

hmmm
Billy Winn
Josh Chapman
Dwight Jones

a few that for some reason have 3rd round grades or lower on them but IMO could be quality starters

I guess Chapmans ACL is the reason for him though

Ryan Broyles. You put him in the slot from day one and he will give you Austin Collie like production. He may be available in the 4th and the only reason he slides is b/c of injury. If he were healthy all year most would be talking about him instead of Wright... Not that Wright won't be great himself.

Both Winn and Jones need fires lit under them. They both have the talent to be NFL players, but both are known to not put forth an effort all the time, which explains why both have dropped some. So it will be up to them if they really want it bad enough or not.

I have a different definition of a sleeper player.

I listed prospects slated to go in the 4th round or later, who I think are being underrated.

Mike Martin doesn't fit that criteria, but I still think he is being underrated.

Unlike some, I don't feel the need to start a new thread every ten minutes, so I threw this list of players on this thread.

If it doesn't fit the exact criteria, then whoop de damn doo.

I don't see your list of players anywhere for critique.

If you are going to go around being a critic, at least throw your cock in the ring and produce a list we can look at.
