  • Sleeper WR's (the next T-Owens, Steve Smith, Donald Driver, TJ Houshmanzadeh....)

    Tons of great WR's are found after round one is in the books.
    T.O., Steve Smith, Driver, Greg Jennings, TJ, Chad Johnson, Hines Ward, Marques Colston........none were 1st round picks and some 7th rounders.

    Who are the best bets for this draft class to give us some gems down the road at WR, that come in rounds 3 or later? Day two steals?

    Contrary to that, tons of bust WR's ARE FOUND in round ONE.
    Charles Rogers #3 overall, Peter Warrick #4 overall, Troy Williamson, Mike Williams both top tenners, Marcus Nash, Troy Edwards, Travis Taylor, Sylvestor Morris, RJ Soward, Frauddy Mitchell, Rod Gardner, Ashley Lelie, Michael Clayton (I know had good rookie season, but since then crap), Michael Jenkins, Rashuan Woods all have been recent wastes of round one picks.

    Eddie Royal?
    William Franklin?
    Marcus Monk?
    Dexter Jackson?
    Keenan Burton?
    Steve Johnson?
    Ryan Grice-Mullins?
    Kenny Moore?
    Mario Uruttia?
    DJ Hall?

    Super Sleepers> Marcus Henry or Maurice Purify? Ernie Wheelwright or Cameron Colvin?
    Ernie is almost 6-5, solid, and runs a 4.52.

    I'm certain that someone or more than one, from this list will end up being a Pro Bowl WR, and I'd take a lot of them before Mario Manningham, for my team.

    Who's your money on?

    William Franklin, Andre Caldwell, Earl Bennett

    <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
    <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
    <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

      Not sure if he will go in round three or later but the first guy that came to mind was Jerome Simpson.

        Burton and Urrutia i think have the best chance to be sleepers, also adrian arrington is a nice reciever, but he should have stayed in school

          Jerome Simpson - I agree.

              earl bennett is flying under the radar, i think he'll be a beauty.

              reminds me of reggie wayne in a way.

              RIP, Sean Taylor.

                my top 3 sleepers.
                1. Keenan Burton, Kentucky
                2. Ryan Grice-Mullen, Hawaii
                3. Chaz Schilens, San Diego State

                Schilens especially isnt getting a lot of attention.
                great size (6'4 210)
                runs a 4.38 40.
                has a vertical of 43"! (same as Calvin Johnson i believe)

                Go Celtics
                Go Irish
                Go Ravens

                  Lance Leggett WR miami 6'3" 4.43 40 yard dash


                  • #10
                    Adrian Arrington, Jordy Nelson, Cameron Colvin, and Luke Swan. Luke Swan especially needs more love, he wont ever be elite, but he will be a solid posession WR.

                            Marcus Monk.

                            Once he gets with a QB that can actually get him the ball, he'll be very good,
                            so long as he can stay healthy (knee)
