Super Sleepers
Scott Wright
President, Draft Countdown

The term "Sleeper" is becoming more difficult to define these days. Technically Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was probably a sleeper because he went to a small school, even though he was a first round pick. The NFL Draft has become so popular and the internet has made information so readily available that in reality there are very few true sleepers.

Here is a look at my annual "Super Sleeper Team". None of these guys were invited to the Scouting Combine and, honestly, most of them will go undrafted. However, they are all prospects that I like and feel have the potential to make a NFL roster and contribute.

Some players who've appeared on this list in the past and wound up making impacts in the NFL include Eric Foster (Colts), Brian Witherspoon (Jaguars), Mike Cox (Chiefs), Brett Kern (Broncos), Steven Hauschka (Ravens), Mackenzy Bernadeau (Panthers), Aaron Brown (Lions), Ryan Succop (Chiefs), Nick Reed (Seahawks), Larry Hart (Jaguars), Deji Karim (Jaguars), Reggie Stephens (Bengals), Jorrick Calvin (Eagles), Joe Webb (Vikings), Sam Shields (Packers), Daniel Kilgore (49ers), David Carter (Cardinals), Mike Harris (Chargers), Gino Gradkowski (Ravens), Greg Zuerlein (Rams), Jayson DiManche (Bengals) and Sam Martin (Lions). Notable names from last year were Terrence Fede (Dolphins), Kevin Pamphile (Buccaneers), Randell Johnson (Bills) and Corey Washington (Giants).

So without further adieu, here is Draft Countdown's 2015 Super Sleeper Team:
