Best Late Round Prospects?
Very early on here are a few of my top late round prospects for the 2012 draft. A very deep draft class and a few possible stars if teams keep their eye out.
So who are you watching out for in the late rounds?
*Darius Fleming OLB Notre Dame 3-4: Very stout run defender, strong at the point of attack, and ideal 3/4 OLB in any system, could play inside or out.
*Kyle Wilber OLB Wake Forest 4-6: Big long kid, good edge rusher with worlds of potential and athletic ability, if he fills out he could be a terror off the edge.
*Brandon Boykin CB Georgia 3-5: Very underrated corner, solid in coverage, good tackler, big time speed, has return abilities as a punt or kick return man.
*Jermarcus Hardrick OT Nebraska 5-7: Could be a starting tackle in the NFL if he keeps improving, has really long arms and quick feet.
*Kirk Cousins QB Michigan State: 3-5: Some do not like the kid but he is smart and tough as they come. Great leader on the football field and has amazing poise and performs in the clutch.
*Brandon Bolden RB Ole Miss: 5-7: Not a star but is a very sound back and is more complete than some of the others backs coming out, he has size and speed.
*Keshawn Martin WR Michigan State 4-6: Had a fine season, really great return man, can make people miss and is a improving receiver.
*Nick Gentry DE Alabama 3-5: A stud late in the season, a beast off the edge as a 3/4 pass rushing DE, could be taken earlier than expected just because of how he can get to the quarterback.
*Justin Johnson WR Houston 6-7: Big tall target, nice hands, good frame and has a wide body. Could be a good pickup if he shows he can be a proven route runner and has some speed.
*Chris Marve ILB Vanderbilt 5-6: A little bull at inside linebacker, could be a fine 3/4 ILB ideally and with his aggressive play some team will try him out.
*Dwight Bentley CB Lousiana Lafayette 4-7: Small corner but plays big, is a confident player with fine athletic ability and open field speed, plus more than solid ball skills.
*Antonio Allen SS South Carolina 6-7: Not as productive as he should have been in college, but is a fine athlete and could become a possible SS or OLB at the next level.
*Johnson Bademosi CB/FS Stanford 4-6: Love his size and long arms, very solid in coverage and can cover bigger receivers, has ability to more to FS possibly as well.
*Trenton Robinson FS Michigan State 3-5: A very underrated safety, had a great year and is solid in coverage and is a fine tackler. Some might sleep on him but this kid can play.
*Bruce Figgins FB/TE Georgia: 4-7: Has ability to play tight end of full back, that could make him very interesting to a lot of teams.
