  • Post Your Favorite Draft Sleepers Here

    We usually do this at the tail end of our UDFA thread, but I thought it would be more user-friendly to do it in a separate thread.

    Who are some of your favorite sleepers in this draft? Post a full bio / analysis here, or at least a few sentences about why you've got a man-crush on some unknown prospect.

            I wouldn't regard either of those as sleepers, both will be off the board by the end of the 4th rd IRL.

                      Dude, he stood out on tape when I was trying to watch DJ Hayden! He did everything for HOU and was a 4 year starter. I just kept going who is #42?

                      2012 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM (COACHES): LB-Phillip Steward, Sr., Houston, has been selected First Team All-Conference USA (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. A linebacker with 47 consecutive starts, Steward led the league and was 14th nationally with 11 sacks. The senior led Conference USA and was fourth nationally with five forced fumbles. He was second in the league and ninth nationally with 19 tackles for loss. The Missouri City, Texas, native led Houston and was ninth nationally with 128 tackles. Steward also had three interceptions, three pass breakups, one fumble recovery and 10 quarterback hurries.

                        I drafted most of my favorite sleepers in the 7th Round:

                        DE/LB Eric Martin, Nebraska
                        OT Roger Gaines, Tennessee State
                        S Cody Davis, Texas Tech
                        RB Michael James, Miami

                        I also really like:

                        DT AJ Francis, Maryland
                        CB Mike Edwards, Hawaii

                        And this UCF RB, Latavius Murray that Jebures found looks really interesting.



                        I'll list all my UDFAs as Sleepers, because I feel they are. Except for Locke, whom laughingly fell to Free Agency #2. I'm not overly high on Replogle or Rallis either, but I really like my first 12 UDFAs.



                        1. Colby Cameron, QB, Louisiana Tech 6’2, 215
                        Stats: 69%, 4147 Yds, 7.9 YPA, 31TDs, 5INTs, 177RYds, 4TDs
                        Measurables: 4.71 40, 30 Vert, 112 Broad, 4.28 Shuttle, 6.98 3 Cone.
                        Awards: Sammy Baugh Award (Nation’s top passer), WAC Offensive Player of the Year, ALL-WAC 1st Team
                        Notes: Set college football’s all time record with 444 passes without an interception. Extremely accurate QB with good mobility, only knock is his height and deep arm strength.
                        Compares favorably to Andy Dalton.
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round.

                        2. PJ Lonergan, OC, LSU 6’3, 305
                        Stats: Leader of LSU O-line, 4 year starter. Really peaked my interest after I watched him dominate Alabama’s Jesse Williams when they matched up 1v1. Not a great athlete, but looks like a technician type with solid strength.
                        Measurables: 5.23 40, 26 Vert, 92 Broad, 4.93 Shuttle, 8.01 3 Cone, 25 Reps.
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round.

                        3. Marcus Cromartie, CB, Wisconsin 6’0, 195
                        Stats: 62 Tackles, 12 Passes Defended, 1 INT.
                        Measurables: 4.35 40, 34 Vert, 121 Broad, 4.19 Shuttle, 6.85 3 Cone, 14 Reps.
                        Awards: ALL BIG 10 Honorable Mention
                        Notes: Prototype NFL CB with size and speed, came on very strong his senior season.
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round.

                        4. John Lotulelei, LB, UNLV 5’11, 235
                        Stats: 121 Tackles, 2 Stuffs, 1INT, 2 Passes Defended, 2 Forced Fumbles
                        Measurables: 4.65 40, 35 Vert, 122 Broad, 4.30 Shuttle, 6.91 3 Cone, 25 Reps.
                        Awards: ALL MOUNTAIN WEST 1st Team, Butkus Watch List.
                        Notes: Explosive and athletic LB that only really started a full year. Came from JUCO.
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round.

                        5. Chris Hubbard, OG/OC, UAB 6’4, 295
                        Stats: Massive sleeper. Dominating RT prospect that will move inside to OG or OC. Elite athleticism and work ethic. Drew a ton of attention at UAB’s Pro Day and also was invited to workout at Alabama’s Pro Day, where he stole the show with his 4.71 40.
                        Link: http://nfldraftzone.com/draft-news/u...abama-pro-day/
                        Measurables: 4.71 40, 28 Vert, 108 Broad, 4.69 Shuttle, 7.52 3 Cone
                        Awards: ALL CONFERENCE USA 1st Team
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round.

                        6. Akeem Shavers, RB, Purdue 5’10, 200
                        Stats: 181C, 871 Yds, 4.8 YPC, 6TDs, 18 Rec, 370 Yds, 3TDs
                        Measurables: 4.40 40, 39 Vert, 131 Broad, 4.27 Shuttle, 6.89 3 Cone, 19 Reps.
                        Notes: Was timed between 4.35 and 4.47 at his Pro Day. Explosive athlete. JUCO player, so only really started this season. High developmental upside.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round.

                        7. Sheldon Price, CB, UCLA 6’2, 190
                        Stats: 37 Tackles, 1 Stuff, 4INT, 5 Passes Defended, 1 Blocked Kick.
                        Measurables: 4.42 40, 39 Vert, 126 Broad, 4.4 Shuttle, 7.10 3 Cone, 6 Reps.
                        Notes: Excellent athlete with prototype size/speed for the CB position. 4 Year starter, but still a project that needs refinement and serious strength training.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round.

                        8. Lucas Reed, TE, New Mexico 6’6, 250
                        Stats: 5 Rec, 37 Yds.
                        Measurables: 4.65 40, 37 Vert, 124 Broad, 4.08 Shuttle, 6.99 3 Cone, 25 Reps.
                        Notes: New Mexico does not throw the ball now, but they did a few years ago and Reed put up solid numbers. Is the brother of Houston’s Brooks Reed. Very good athlete that is an all-around TE with plenty of experience run blocking. A sleeper.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round – UDFA.

                        9. Dennis Johnson, RB/KR, Arkansas 5’7, 196
                        Stats: 137C, 757 Yds, 8TDs, 25 Rec, 160 Yds, 2TDs
                        Measurables: 4.48 40, 32.5 Vert, 118 Broad, 4.53 Shuttle, 7.13 3 Cone, 21 Reps.
                        Notes: Darren Sproles type. Was very effective as a Kick Returner his Freshman and Sophomore years, combining for 2036 Yards on 81 Returns, a 24.0 YPR average with 2 TDs.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round – UDFA.

                        10. Jeff Locke, P, UCLA 6’1, 209
                        Stats: 77 Punts, 3337 Yards, 43.3 Avg
                        Awards: ALL PAC 12 First Team.
                        Notes: Incredibly talented Punter with excellent hang time and placement ability. Also a phenomenal Kickoff specialist, having gotten a Touchback on 68 of 89 Kickoffs, a 76% clip.
                        Draft Grade: 6th Round

                        11. Kemal Ishmael, S, Central Florida 5’11, 201
                        Stats: 124 Tackles, 5 Stuffs, 1 Sack, 3 INT, 4 Passes Defended, 5 Forced Fumbles.
                        Measurables: 4.63 40, 35.5 Vert, 123 Broad, 4.28 Shuttle, 6.75 3 Cone, 21 Reps.
                        Awards: Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year. Conference USA First Team.
                        Notes: Good athlete, 4 year starter, absolutely dominating Senior season. A little undersized, but should be great as a subpackage guy.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round – UDFA.

                        12. Jamaal Johnson-Webb, OT, Alabama A&M 6’5, 313
                        Stats: Started football his Senior season in High School. Started all 4 years in college, the last three at OT. Needs an NFL weight lifting program for sure, but has enough mobility to stick at RT along with massive 35 ¾ arms. A 3 year project, but one with starting RT upside.
                        Draft Grade: 7th Round - UDFA

                        13. Adam Replogle, DT, Indiana 6’2, 300
                        Stats: 70 Tackles, 13 Stuffs, 4 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble
                        Measurables: 5.08 40, 31 Vert, 106 Broad, 4.71 Shuttle, 7.62 3 cone, 38 Reps.
                        Awards: ALL BIG 10 2nd TEAM
                        Notes: Extremely strong but marginal athlete. Lacks size and quickness. Hard working type that might find a spot on the back end of a D-line rotation.
                        Draft Grade: UDFA

                        14. Mike Rallis, LB, Minnesota 6’1, 243
                        Stats: 80 Tackles, 5 Stuffs, 1 Sack, 1 Forced Fumble
                        Measurables: 4.69 40, 38 Vert, 126 Broad, 4.45 Shuttle, 7.20 3 cone, 25 Reps.
                        Notes: Good size and athleticism for an ILB prospect. Not overly productive, but was one of the best prospects at Minnesota and 28 teams went to their Pro Day. I also had to use the last of my salary cap.

                              My sleeper is James Wilson, OG Florida.

                              He was the rivals #8 High school prep coming out of HS. Played high school football in Florida with Tim Tebow. The guy can pull either direction, Has tremendous size at 6'4" 320lbs. and can pancake opposing D lineman. Watched him play his entire career at Florida. If he did not have nagging knee problems he would be a 2-3rd round pick. I know he has been in contact with a couple of NFL teams. If not selected in the draft, well worth bringing in for a look.

                              Besides, He is a Bronco's fan as well.
