a few guys I haven't seen play, honestly, just based on physical stats, but one guy on here who the rest of you don't know much about I'm sure is Brandon Toles. I have friends who go to Southern Connecticut State and I was able to catch a game while I was visiting and he is scary fast. He ran over people, as well as around them. Granted, they are not a great football program, not in a good conference, but he was dominant. I actually found him on a draft site, so he may be on the radar of some NFL teams.

Adrian Arrington, WR, Michigan.
Probably a 3rd round pick at the very best at this point and he's not nearly as flashy as Super Mario but I know a few of us Michigan guys around here feel like he could be the better pro.

I love Adrian Arrington. He has outstanding hands and is very athletic. I definetly think hes a first day pick with a slight chance of being a 2nd rounder.

Travis Brown and Marcus Smith, WR's, New Mexico

Marcus has the better pro potential of the two, but Brown is no slouch.

Marcus has elite speed, as he and Reggie Bush competed in track in HS, and faced each other twice. Each won a race. He has only played WR for a few years, and is getting better all the time.

Travis isn't as fast but still has good speed. He has great hands and is excellent at recognizing coverages and finding an open spot against zone coverage.

Eric Foster won't play DT in the NFL..probably gonna see a move to DE, since he weighs about 270..

As Ive mentioned in the Steelers forum my sleeper is WR AMARRI JACKSON, hes my boy.

Great call on Brian Johnston. He reminds me a lot of Aaron Kampman. Should be a steal and hopefully becomes the first Gardner Webb football player to be drafted

Brandon Toles is 5'10, 180. He'd have to be really, really, really fast to be an NFL back at that size.

It's not every day Lobos WR's get pro love, but I have to agree with you. I think Marcus has a legit chance of being drafted and Brown will do his best Baskett impression and sign a UDFA contract.

Also, how about Lavelle Hawkins? After 5 games he leads both Desean Jackson and Robert Jordan in receiving yards and has 1 less reception than Jackson. While he may not be as fast as Jackson he does have decent wheels and in some cases has proven to be pretty explosive.

I go to Akron, and his was the first name that popped into my mind when I clicked t his thread. Arthur is a legitimate 6'4" 220lbs . He doesn't have great speed, but it is definitely good enough, and he plays the ball very well in the air. An added bonus is that he's a converted QB, so he can throw the ball downfield on trick plays also. He'll definitely find his way onto an NFL roster.

Hell has officially frozen over as I type this, but Morgan Trent, CB, Michigan could, COULD, be a sleeper. He's MUCH improved this season (not that it was hard to improve) My favorite whipping ***** from last year, he's turned it around somewhat after getting abused by Dwayne Jarrett (among others) and could be a decent pickup in the 6th-7th round. I will now wander onto oncoming traffic.

I have been pushing this point since the beginning of last year. Arrington is very underrated IMO. Manningham gets the love because of his skills on the deep ball, but Arrington is more polished, and the better all around receiver IMO.

Yeah, Brown just passed Baskett for 3rd all time in receptions at UNM. Marcus isn't that far behind. I think that Travis should be a mid-late round guy, and Marcus should be an early round pick.

Jamar Brittingham from Bloomsburg is a RB prospect I really like. He's got size (6'0" 205lbs,) and speed (4.5 40.) I just saw him today at Bloomsburg's homecoming game, and he flat out dominated the Millersville team. Brittingham's stats, 22 carries 257 yards for 4 touchdowns (long run of 81 yards. The link shows Bloomsburg's individual player stats through 10/13/2007.

Eh arm isn't great not enough strength, and too much work with maintaining his bionic arm. He doesn't even practice during the week as to not wear out his arm, I don't think he has any pro potential at all but he is a nice college story for 1 year.

My sleeper is Nate Lyles, can make an impact in special teams with potential at safety as a hard hitting tackler and blitzer.

Sorry, but have you watched him this season. He is the leader after showing up on season. He has made very clutch plays and already has three interceptions (which is hard to come by recently for a Mountaineer).

He may have been bad at Michigan, but this is obviously a different person. Favre did it with Atlanta to Green Bay. Very similar situation.
