Draft Sleepers
 
So in past years, I've had my eye on certain mid to late round picks (Zack Bowman, Connor Barwin, James Starks....[SIZE="1"]jevan snead[/SIZE]

But this year, I'm not sure anyone is really catching my attention.

How about the rest of you? Any draft sleepers?

I'm going to be a homer, but I'll at least post a link that Matty posted in the draft thread.
See Pat Irwin's sleeper - Tyrod Taylor!

I am talking about a 5th round pick at worst for a guy that may end up at wr, we need help there too. Another Hokie that might drop to the 7th or UDFA is RB Darren Evans. He isn't anything special but is a tough runner, would fit the zone scheme well, and will definitely do whatever it takes to make the team.

Otherwise, didn't get to see much outside of ACC & bowl games. Don't feel I can add much beyond what the scouts have already said.

There a decent crop of 2nd tier RBs whom I would consider sleepers...look to last year, Blunt and Ivory were the top rookie RBs and neither were drafted.

This year is prime in the RBs department to pull a Shanny special, even though some of those "sleepers" look to be moving up on boards from what im hearing.

Well he has injury issues but he's a pretty good RB when healthy, he is very good in Pass Catching also

Sleepers....With six of our eight picks coming 5th round and beyond, we're going to need as many "sleepers" as we can possibly find. Andrew Lewis DT Syracuse, Jabari Fletcher OLB Appalachian State, Darvin Adams WR Auburn just to name a few I know are going to be overlooked in the draft, BIMO have upside with the right team.

If round one takes too long and I've had a long day, I will be a draft sleeper.

Otherwise I'll go with Thomas Keiser, OLB from Stanford. Reasonably big, reasonably fast, and smart, so that he should adapt to the NFL quickly.

Well lets list sleepers that emerged last year and see if anyone thought they would amount to something.

LeGarrette Blount - RB - Bucs - This is one that we all figured was capable of doing some damage.

Tony Moeaki - TE - Cheifs - Didn't see that one coming. Wasn't dynamite but 300 yards for a 3rd round TE is pretty solid.

Koa Misi - OLB - Dolphins - I think some of us had him pegged as a possible impact player.

Mike Williams - WR - Bucs - I don't think anyone wanted to look at recievers last year.

Riley Cooper - WR - Philly - 5th round steal apparently.

James Starks came on pretty strong toward the end of the year

(C-OG) Ryan Bartholomew from Syracuse. After you plug his name in your favorite search engine, I won't be the only one talking about him.

Check that..... Cult mentioned him too.

What about some players that ended up being sleepers from the 2008 and 2009 draft, because after reading midseason and end of season rookie reports a lot of guys drafted after round 2 were simply relegated to backup duty if anything at all.

I still contend though that it's always the guys we've never heard of on draft day that end up being the good players.

Only one I can find for now is Steve Johnson - WR - Buffalo. A 2008 7th round pick from Kentucky (SEC Pride ya'll) that just posted a 1,073 10 TD season....IN BUFFALO!

Here's some more:

2008:
Anthony Collins - OT - Cincinati - 4th round pick out of Kansas
Carl Nicks - OG - Saints - 5th Round pick out of Nebraska.
Davone Bess - WR - Dolphins - UDFA out of Hawaii.
Steve Slaton - RB - Texans - 3rd Round Pick out of West VA.

2009
Sebastian Vollmer - OT - Patriots - Second Round Pick out of Houston
DeAndre Levy - LB - Lions - 3rd Round pick out of Wisconsin.
