  • Grizz's Updated Rankings

    So work has been really hectic lately so I wasn't nearly as fast as Pudge in finishing my post-combine rankings so here are my Post-Combine/Half-way through Pro Days rankings and Big Board. I threw in a sleeper at every position as well. I had some discussion points for each position but most of it was things everyone around here has seen before so I only left in info on the sleepers in case you haven't heard of him. Let me know what you think:


    1. Sam Bradford, Oklahoma (Top 5)
    2. Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame (Top 10)
    3. Colt McCoy, Texas (2nd or 3rd)
    4. Tim Tebow, Florida (2nd or 3rd)
    5. Tony Pike, Cincinnati (3rd or 4th)
    6. Jarrett Brown, West Virginia (3rd or 4th)
    7. Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan (4th-6th)
    8. Jevan Snead, Mississippi (4th-7th)
    9. Zac Robinson, Oklahoma State (5th-7th)
    10. Mike Kafka, Northwestern (5th-7th)
    11. Jonathan Crompton, Tennessee (6th-7th)
    12. John Skelton, Fordham(4th-7th)
    13. Levi Brown, Troy (6th-UDFA)
    14. Sean Canfield, Oregon State (7th-UDFA)
    15. Matt Nichols, Eastern Washington (7th-UDFA)
    16. Armanti Edwards, Appalachian State (WR) (6th-UDFA)
    17. Max Hall, Brigham Young (UDFA)
    18. Daryll Clark, Penn State (6th-UDFA)
    19. Tim Hiller, Western Michigan (UDFA)
    20. Rusty Smith, Florida Atlantic (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Brian Babin, Southeastern Louisiana (7th-UDFA) - Similar to guys like Skelton and Jarrett Brown in that they have the size and arm to succeed at the next level but are lacking in other areas. Babin is 6-5 225 so he definitely has to succeed at the next level. Like most college QBs, he worked completely out of the shotgun so he will need to adjust to taking snaps under center. He could use a little more bulk but looking at the game tape he has great athleticism for his size and really excels at throwing on the run. He has shown the ability to avoid the rush and keep plays alive by using his superior size, similar to Big Ben and McNabb. A three year starter, he threw 65 TDs as opposed to only 23 interceptions, 8 of which came in his first two years. He had a 10:3 TD to INT ratio as a junior and senior. His 62% completion percentage was a bit deceiving as he only had one weapon to work with, WR Simmie Yarborough a sophomore that is a future sleeper. Overall I see as a guy that has value as a long term project as he needs to bulk up, learn how to play under center, and work on his intermediate routes since most of his offense was short passes often and then taking a shot downfield once in a while.


    1. C.J. Spiller, Clemson (Top 15)
    2. Jahvid Best, California (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    3. Ryan Mathews, Fresno State (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    4. Jonathan Dwyer, Georgia Tech (2nd)
    5. Toby Gerhart, Stanford (Late 2nd-Mid 3rd)
    6. Dexter McCluster , Mississippi (3rd-4th) (WR)
    7. Anthony Dixon, Mississippi State (3rd-4th)
    8. Ben Tate, Auburn (2rd-4th)
    9. Montario Hardesty, Tennessee (4th)
    10. James Starks, Buffalo (4th-5th)
    11. Joe McKnight, USC (4th-5th)
    12. LeGarrette Blount, Oregon (4th-6th)
    13. Joique Bell, Wayne State (5th-7th)
    14. Stafon Johnson, USC (5th-7th)
    15. Andre Dixon, Connecticut (6th-7th)
    16. Lonyae Miller, Fresno State (7th-UDFA)
    17. Chris Brown, Oklahoma (7th-UDFA)
    18. Charles Scott, LSU (7th-UDFA)
    19. Keith Totson, Oklahoma State (7th-UDFA)
    20. Pat Paschall, North Dakota State (7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: LaMarcus Coker, Hampton (6th-UDFA) – Former star at the University of Tennessee got thrown off the team due to his off-field antics involving alcohol and weed bounced back in a strong way at Hampton. From all accounts, he’s cleaned up his act and was first team all-meac this season and rushed for over 1000 yards and 6 TDs. Has legit sub-4.3 speed and is hoping someone will realize he’s clean and take a chance on him.


    1. Clay Harbor, Missouri State (4rd-6th) (TE)
    2. Rashawn Jackson, Virginia (5th-7th)
    3. Manase Tonga, Brigham Young (6th-7th)
    4. John Conner, Kentucky (6th-UDFA)
    5. Cory Jackson, Maryland (UDFA)

    Sleeper: William Croner, Howard (UDFA) – A mammoth of a man at 6’-2” 280 lbs, Croner spent his time at Howard playing FB but he also played some DT and actually had two INTs. Figures to have value as an undrafted guy that could potentially be a Dan Klecko type of player that can help out at FB, DT, and special teams.


    1. Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State (Top 15)
    2. Golden Tate, Notre Dame (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    3. Arrelious Benn, Illinois (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    4. Damian Williams, USC (2nd)
    5. Mardy Gilyard, Cincinnati (2nd)
    6. Demaryius Thomas, Georgia Tech (2nd-3rd)
    7. Brandon LaFell, LSU (2nd-3rd)
    8. Carlton Mitchell, South Florida (3rd-4th)
    9. Eric Decker, Minnesota (3rd-4th)
    10. Jordan Shipley, Texas (3rd-4th)
    11. Andre Roberts, The Citadel (3rd-4th)
    12. Taylor Price, Ohio (4th)
    13. Jacoby Ford, Clemson (4th)
    14. Mike Williams, Syracuse (4th-7th)
    15. Jeremy Williams, Tulane (4th-5th)
    16. Riley Cooper, Florida (4th-5th)
    17. Blair White, Michigan State (5th)
    18. Dezmon Briscoe, Kansas (5th)
    19. Shay Hodge, Mississippi (5th-6th)
    20. Antonio Brown, Central Michigan (5th-7th)
    21. David Gettis, Baylor (5th-7th)
    22. Freddie Barnes, Bowling Green (5th-7th)
    23. Marcus Easley, Connecticut (6th-7th)
    24. Danario Alexander, Missouri (6th-7th)
    25. Donald Jones, Youngstown State (7th-UDFA)
    26. Scott Long, Louisville (7th-UDFA)
    27. Seyi Ajirotutu, Fresno State (7th-UDFA)
    28. Naaman Roosevelt, Buffalo (7th-UDFA)
    29. Emmanuel Sanders, Southern Methodist (7th-UDFA)
    30. Kyle Williams, Arizona State (7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: A.J. Jackson, California (PA) (7th-UDFA) – One of two top talents out of California (PA), Jackson is a huge target at 6-6 240 that runs in the 4.5s. He had one of the best seasons in the history of collegiate receivers posting 101 receptions for 1424 yards and 18 TDs. Originally committed to Michigan State but had to go to a JUCO after failing to meet the grades and after the passing of his mother and birth of his son, wound up at Cal (PA). Shattered school records in only two years at the program. He’s a good possession guy that runs good routes for his size and is a strong blocker. Character concerns but would likely have been drafted were he at a school in a major conference.


    1. Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma (Top 25)
    2. Rob Gronkowski, Arizona (2nd)
    3. Ed Dickson, Oregon (2nd-3rd)
    4. Aaron Hernandez, Florida (2nd-4th)
    5. Dorin Dickerson, Pittsburgh (2nd-4th)
    6. Dennis Pitta, Brigham Young (3rd)
    7. Anthony McCoy, USC (4th)
    8. Jimmy Graham, Miami (4th-5th)
    9. Garrett Graham, Wisconsin (5th)
    10. Andrew Quarless, Penn State (5th-7th)
    11. Tony Moeaki, Iowa (5th-7th)
    12. Colin Peek, Alabama (5th-7th)
    13. Michael Hoomanawanui, Illinois (6th-7th)
    14. Jeron Mastrud, Kansas State (7th-UDFA)
    15. Nate Byham, Pittsburgh(7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: Scott Sicko, New Hampshire (7th-UDFA) – At 6’-4”, 252 pounds, Sicko has the size needed to play in the NFL. He had a strong senior campaign, turning in 75 receptions for 725 yards and 9 TDs. A much better receiver than blocker but he shows dedication in the run game and really gets after people and puts in maximum effort. Who wouldn’t want a player on their team named Sicko?


    1. Russell Okung, Oklahoma State (Top 5)
    2. Bryan Bulaga, Iowa (Top 10)
    3. Trent Williams, Oklahoma (Top 15)
    4. Anthony Davis, Rutgers (1st)
    5. Bruce Campbell, Maryland (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    6. Charles Brown, USC (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    7. Rodger Saffold, Indiana (2nd)
    8. Jared Veldheer, Hillsdale (2nd-3rd)
    9. Jason Fox, Miami (3rd-4th)
    10. Selvish Capers, West Virginia (4th-5th)
    11. Kyle Calloway, Iowa (4th-5th)
    12. Ciron Black, LSU (4th-6th)
    13. Tony Washington, Abilene Christian (5th-7th)
    14. Ed Wang, Virginia Tech (5th-7th)
    15. Chris Scott, Tennessee (6th-7th)
    16. Derek Hardman, Eastern Kentucky (6th-7th)
    17. Sam Young, Notre Dame (6th-7th)
    18. Adam Ulatowski, Texas (6th-UDFA)
    19. Kevin Haslam, Rutgers (6th-UDFA)
    20. Thomas Welch, Vanderbilt (7th-UDFA)
    21. Dennis Landolt, Penn State (7th-UDFA)
    22. Chris Marinelli, Stanford (7th-UDFA)
    23. Tyler Eastman, Maine (7th-UDFA)
    24. James Williams, Harvard (UDFA)
    25. Will Barker, Virginia (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Paul Jasinowki, Brown (UDFA) – A bit undersized, Jasinowski comes in at 6’5” 285 pounds but he has the room on his frame to bulk up into the 300 pound range. Jasinowski was the leader of a Brown offensive line that gave up only 7 sacks this year. A two time unanimous All-Ivy League, and second team Academic All-American selection, he was recruited by some bigger schools out of high school (Boston College, Duke, Maryland) but chose Brown because of its academic prowess. Has good feet and agility and has the athletic ability to play in a zone blocking scheme but could also bulk up and play in a power run game as well.


    1. Mike Iupati, Idaho (1st)
    2. Vladimir Ducasse, Massachusetts (2nd)
    3. John Jerry, Mississippi (2nd-3rd)
    4. Jon Asamoah, Illinois (2nd-3rd)
    5. Mike Johnson, Alabama (3rd-4th)
    6. Marshall Newhouse, Texas Christian (4th-5th)
    7. Mitch Petrus, Arkansas (4th-5th)
    8. Sergio Render, Virginia Tech (5th-7th)
    9. Zane Beadles, Utah (5th-7th)
    10. Shawn Lauvao, Arizona State (5th-7th)
    11. Shelley Smith, Colorado State (5th-7th)
    12. Brandon Carter, Texas Tech (6th-UDFA)
    13. Dorian Brooks, James Madison (6th-UDFA)
    14. Chris DeGeare, Wake Forest (7th-UDFA)
    15. Dace Richardson, Iowa (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Robert Okeafor, Florida A&M (7th-UDFA) – A tackle at Florida A&M, he has ideal size for a guard at the next level. Was a two time first-team all MEAC selection and played both tackle and guard there. A high character guy that is a beast against the run but is still a bit raw against the pass.


    1. Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    2. J.D. Walton, Baylor (3rd-4th)
    3. Matt Tennant, Boston College (4th-5th)
    4. Jeff Byers, USC (5th-6th)
    5. Eric Olsen, Notre Dame (6th-UDFA)
    6. John Estes, Hawaii (7th-UDFA)
    7. Erik Cook, New Mexico (6th-UDFA)
    8. Ted Larsen, North Carolina State (7th-UDFA)
    9. Joe Hawley, UNLV (UDFA)
    10. Kenny Alfred, Washington State (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Jake Seitz, UAB (UDFA) – Seitz is a bit undersized at 6’2” and 290 pounds but he has a ton of experience as he was a 4 year starter for the Blazers. He has the room to add some pounds and has some experience kicking over to LG as well so he offers value as someone to stash away and develop physically.


    1. Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech (Top 20)
    2. Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida (Top 15)
    3. Brandon Graham, Michigan (Top 25) (OLB/ILB)
    4. Ricky Sapp, Clemson (Late 1st-Early 2nd)(OLB)
    5. Everson Griffen, USC (Late 1st-Early 2nd) (OLB)
    6. Carlos Dunlap, Florida (2nd)
    7. Jason Worilds, Virginia Tech (2nd-3rd) (OLB)
    8. Corey Wootton, Northwestern (3rd)(34 DE)
    9. Jermaine Cunningham, Florida (3rd-4th) (OLB)
    10. Alex Carrington, Arkansas State (3rd-4th) (34 DE)
    11. George Selvie, South Florida (4th-5th)
    12. Brandon Deaderick, Alabama (4th-5th) (34 DE)
    13. Lindsey Witten, Connecticut (5th-6th) (OLB)
    14. Clifton Geathers, South Carolina (5th-6th) (34 DE)
    15. Greg Hardy, Mississippi (3rd-6th)
    16. Austen Lane, Murray State (5th-7th)
    17. Hall Davis, Louisiana-Lafayette (5th-7th)
    18. Brandon Lang, Troy (5th-7th) (OLB)
    19. C.J. Wilson, East Carolina (6th-7th) (34 DE)
    20. E.J. Wilson, North Carolina (6th-7th)
    21. Jammie Kirlew, Indiana (7th-UDFA)
    22. Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, Washington (7th-UDFA)
    23. Kevin Basped, Nevada (7th-UDFA)
    24. George Johnson, Rutgers (7th-UDFA)
    25. Jan Jorgenson, Brigham Young (7th-UDFA) (OLB)

    Sleeper: Mitch Unrein, Wyoming (6th-UDFA) – Unrein is a late round prospect that played on one of the few 3-4 college teams. Unrein is a bit undersized at 6’3” ¾ and 276 pounds but he has the strength and experience to play in a 3-4 and, just as important, certainly showed the athleticism to play in a 4-3 at his Pro Day. Unrein is a hard worker that has a high motor and would be a good fit with a team looking for a LDE in a 4-3 as he is very stout against the run. Stripped Ryan Mathews in the New Mexico Bowl to seal the victory for Wyoming and went out with a bang.


    1. Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska (Top 3) (34 DE)
    2. Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma (Top 3)
    3. Dan Williams, Tennessee (Top 20) (NT)
    4. Jared Odrick, Penn State (1st) (34 DE)
    5. Brian Price, UCLA (1st)
    6. Terrence Cody, Alabama (Late 1st-Early 2nd) (NT)
    7. Lamarr Houston, Texas (2nd)
    8. Tyson Alualu, California (2nd)
    9. Cam Thomas, North Carolina (2nd-3rd) (NT)
    10. Torrell Troup, Central Florida (3rd-4th) (NT)
    11. Geno Atkins, Georgia (3rd-4th)
    12. Linval Joseph, East Carolina (3rd-5th) (NT)
    13. Mike Neal, Purdue (3th-5th)
    14. D’Anthony Smith, Louisiana Tech (4th-7th)
    15. Arthur Jones, Syracuse (4th-6th)
    16. Jeff Owens, Georgia (5th-7th) (NT)
    17. Earl Mitchell, Arizona (5th-7th)
    18. Vince Oghobaase, Duke (5th-7th) (34 DE)
    19. Al Woods, LSU (5th-7th)
    20. Jay Ross, East Carolina (6th-7th) (NT)
    21. Doug Worthington, Ohio State (7th-UDFA) (34 DE)
    22. Kade Weston, Georgia (7th-UDFA) (NT)
    23. Aleric Mullins, North Carolina (7th-UDFA) (NT)
    24. Ekom Udofia, Stanford (7th-UDFA) (NT)
    25. Travis Ivey, Maryland (7th-UDFA) (NT)

    Sleeper: Sean Lissemore, William & Mary (6th-UDFA) – Recruited as a hybrid DE/LB, Lissemore has legit 4.8 speed as a down lineman weighing in at 6’-3” 5/8 and 290 pounds. Lissemore played DE in college but looks to move inside at the next level. Extremely strong and has a great bull rush, stout at the point of attack and good against the run. Figures to get looks as either a 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT and has the skill set and work ethic to succeed in a rotation.


    1. Sean Witherspoon, Missouri (1st)
    2. Sergio Kindle, Texas (1st) (DE)
    3. Jerry Hughes, Texas Christian (Late 1st-Early 2nd) (DE)
    4. Navorro Bowman, Penn State (2nd)
    5. Koa Misi, Utah (2nd) (DE)
    6. Thaddeus Gibson, Ohio State (2nd-3rd)
    7. Eric Norwood, South Carolina (2nd-3rd)
    8. A.J. Edds, Iowa (3rd-5th)
    9. Arthur Moats, James Madison (4th-5th)
    10. Rennie Curran, Georgia (4th-6th)
    11. Roddrick Muckelroy, Texas (5th-6th)
    12. Dekoda Watson, Florida State (4th-6th)
    13. O’Brien Schofield, Wisconsin (5th-7th) (DE)
    14. Perry Riley, LSU (5th-6th)
    15. Kavell Connor, Clemson (5th-7th)
    16. Junior Galette, Stillman (6th-7th)
    17. Cameron Sheffield, Troy (6th-7th) (DE)
    18. Keaton Kristick, Oregon State (7th-UDFA)
    19. Larry Hart, Central Arkansas (7th-UDFA)
    20. Justin Cole, San Jose State (7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: Sam Scott, West Chester (7th-UDFA) – Scott is a tall, athletic LB with sideline-to-sideline speed. Needs to add weight to be successful on the next level as he’s only about 215 at 6’4” but has the room on his frame to do it. High motor guy that is constantly on the move, can be a bit overaggressive but he was an All-PSAC (the same conference as highly regarded Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and Jahri Evans) performer two years in a row and has lots of production. Figures to be a project but definitely worth a late round look.


    1. Rolando McClain, Alabama (Top 15)
    2. Brandon Spikes, Florida (2nd-3rd)
    3. Daryl Washington, Texas Christian (2nd) (OLB)
    4. Sean Lee, Penn State (3rd) (OLB)
    5. Donald Butler, Washington (3rd-4th)
    6. Jamar Chaney, Mississippi State (4th-5th)
    7. Pat Angerer, Iowa (5th)
    8. Mike McLaughlin, Boston College (6th-7th)
    9. Kion Wilson, South Florida (7th-UDFA)
    10. Phillip Dillard, Nebraska (7th-UDFA)
    11. Josh Hull, Penn State (7th-UDFA)
    12. Micah Johnson, Kentucky (7th-UDFA)
    13. Darryl Sharpton, Miami (7th-UDFA)
    14. Boris Lee, Troy (UDFA)
    15. Alex Joseph, Temple (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Brashton Satele, Hawaii (UDFA) – Satele, cousin of former draft picks Samson Satele and Melila Purcell, missed the year with an injury but he has not yet heard from the NCAA about whether he is eligible for a medical redshirt. If not, he will look to move on to the NFL and has been training to play football whether it’s back at Hawaii or looking to make an NFL roster. If he doesn’t get the medical redshirt, he has great size and has the athleticism to play inside in any scheme if they can keep him healthy.


    1. Joe Haden, Florida (Top 15)
    2. Kyle Wilson, Boise State (Top 20)
    3. Kareem Jackson, Alabama (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    4. Devin McCourty, Rutgers (Late 1st-Early 2nd)
    5. Dominique Franks, Oklahoma (2nd)
    6. Patrick Robinson, Florida State (2nd)
    7. Brandon Ghee, Wake Forest (2nd-4th)
    8. Amari Spievey, Iowa (3rd-4th) (FS)
    9. Chris Cook, Virginia (Late 2nd-4th) (FS)
    10. Jerome Murphy, South Florida (3rd-4th)
    11. Perrish Cox, Oklahoma State (2nd-4th)
    12. Donovan Warren, Michigan (2nd-4th)
    13. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Indiana (PA) (4th) (FS)
    14. Javier Arenas, Alabama (4th-5th)
    15. A.J. Jefferson, Fresno State (4th-6th)
    16. Walter Thurmond III, Oregon (5th-7th)
    17. Trevard Lindley, Kentucky (5th-7th)
    18. Kevin Thomas, USC (5th-7th)
    19. Myron Lewis, Vanderbilt (5th-7th)
    20. David Pender, Purdue (5th-7th)
    21. Alterraun Verner, UCLA (5th-7th)
    22. Syd’Quan Thompson, California (5th-7th)
    23. Joshua Moore, Kansas State (6th-7th)
    24. Nolan Carroll, Maryland (6th-7th)
    25. Devin Ross, Arizona (6th-7th)
    26. Walter McFadden, Auburn (7th-UDFA)
    27. Sherrick McManis, Northwestern (7th-UDFA)
    28. A.J. Wallace, Penn State (7th-UDFA)
    29. Brian Jackson, Oklahoma (7th-UDFA)
    30. Jamar Wall, Texas Tech (7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: Terrence Johnson, California (PA) (6th-UDFA) – Akwasi-Owusu Ansah is the small school CB from PA thats getting all the press and pub but Terrence Johnson played just as well this season. A different kind of player, Johnson is more of a small speedy corner that can run with anyone but he has legit 4.3 speed and was a true shutdown corner on his level. He also had 16 interceptions in his career and also contributed in the return game.


    1. Eric Berry, Tennessee (Top 10)
    2. Taylor Mays, USC (Top 20) (SS)
    3. Earl Thomas, Texas (Top 25)
    4. Nate Allen, South Florida (2nd)
    5. Major Wright, Florida (3rd-5th)
    6. Robert Johnson, Utah (5th-7th)
    7. Kendrick Lewis, Mississippi (5th-7th)
    8. Nick Polk, Indiana (5th-7th)
    9. Terrell Skinner, Maryland (6th-UDFA)
    10. Van Eskridge, East Carolina (7th-UDFA)

    Sleeper: Shann Schillinger, Montana (7th-UDFA) – Montana has been an FCS powerhouse the past 10 years and their prospects are often overlooked. Schill is rangy FS with good size (6' 200 lbs) and speed (legit 4.4) with good ball skills but he is also a willing and able tackler as evidenced by his team leading 108 tackles in 2008 as well as leading the team in tackles and interceptions this year.


    1. Morgan Burnett, Georgia Tech (2nd-3rd) (FS)
    2. Reshad Jones, Georgia (2nd-3rd) (FS)
    3. Kam Chancellor, Virginia Tech (3rd-5th) (FS/OLB)
    4. Larry Asante, Nebraska (2nd-4th)
    5. Chad Jones, LSU (3nd-4th)
    6. Darrell Stuckey, Kansas (4th-6th)
    7. Myron Rolle, Florida State (5th-6th)
    8. T.J. Ward, Oregon (5th-7th)
    9. Kyle McCarthy, Notre Dame (6th-7th)
    10. Kurt Coleman, Ohio State (6th-7th)

    Sleeper: P.J. Mahone, Bowling Green (7th-UDFA) – Mahone has off-field issues and was suspended from the team early in the season but he came back with a vengeance and is a force on the field. Mahone is a sure tackler but he also has the athleticism to play in coverage and is a special teams demon, particularly in punt coverage where he has been known to block a punt or two in his time (he had two against Buffalo in his first game back from suspension).


    1. Leigh Tiffin, Alabama (6th-UDFA)
    2. Aaron Pettrey, Ohio State (7th-UDFA)
    3. Brett Swenson, Michigan State (7th-UDFA)
    4. Hunter Lawrence, Texas (UDFA)
    5. Josh Shene, Mississippi (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Austin Signor, Eastern Illinois (UDFA) – An Iowa transfer, Signor has a powerful leg and is built like a linebacker. Could get drafted as a KOS and is similar to David Buehler from last year.


    1. Zoltan Mesko, Michigan (6th-7th)
    2. Brent Bowden, Virginia Tech (UDFA)
    3. Matt Dodge, East Carolina (UDFA)
    4. Scott Ravenesi, Southern Illinois (UDFA)
    5. Jeremy Boone, Penn State (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Tom Mante, Yale (UDFA) – Was the top punter in the Ivy league also played some kicker for Yale. Has a pretty strong leg and could get a look as a Pat McAfee/Michael Koenen type of player that kicks off and punts.


    1. Trindon Holliday, LSU (4th-7th)
    2. Brandon Banks, Kansas State (5th-7th)
    3. Brandon James, Florida (6th-7th)
    4. LeRoy Vann, Florida A&M (7th-UDFA)
    5. Trent Guy, Louisville (UDFA)

    Sleeper: Tim Brown, Rutgers (UDFA) – A very small receiver (5-8 165) will likely have to prove himself as a returner in the NFL. Led Rutgers in receptions, yards, and TDs despite his miniscule size.

    You sir rules at evaluating small scholl guys.

      I feel like a player can't be a "sleeper" if he can't even crack the top 20 or 30 at his position. Maybe you should use a different word for it.

      I'd be interested in knowing why Alterraun Verner is as low as he is and Koa Misi is as high as he is.

        For the sleeper thing, every year players get drafted in the later rounds that even draftniks go, WHO?? heck sometimes even higher than the 6th or 7th, Mike Mitchell and Jason Jones anyone? as most of us didn't even have the player in our top 20 rankings. Last year if you told most of us that guys like Keith Null, JD Folsom, Eddie Williams, Julian Edelman, Jake O'Connell, William Widdleton were all going to get drafted a lot of people around here would have looked at you and said...who are those guys? As they weren't on virtually any of our radars as draftable prospects so I was trying to identify some of those deep sleepers that people may see get taken in the last two rounds or sign as priority free agents that could end up sticking on rosters.

        As for Verner, I place a lot of value on size from the corner position and if I see a really small corner I expect them to make up for it by being speedy and athletic and I don't see him as an elite athlete. The guy makes a ton of plays on the field and looked good in the positional drills but I think he's a nickel corner at best. Every time I look at my CB rankings I am floored at what to do because I really think the first tier is my top 4 guys and then everyone from 5-13 are all pretty much interchangeable based on scheme and preference as my 2nd tier and then 14-21 are all interchangeable in the 3rd tier and often times guys get bumped up/down further than I'd like. Revisiting what I have in my notes, he probably should be closer to 17 but thats still likely the highest I would rank him though.

        As for Misi, he's someone that I've seen a lot of good from in the offseason. He really flashed at the Senior Bowl and then followed that up with a great combine. He looks like he's getting more and more fluid in the LB drills and he has great size and production to go with the good measurables. Even last year when I watched the Utah tape, I kept noticing him flash when I was actually looking at Paul Kruger and I think Misi is a better overall prospect than him and he went late-2nd.
