Chris Smith DE/OLB Arkansas
Allen Robinson WR Penn St. (Check him out, fun player to watch)
Brett Smith QB Wyoming

Another guy I haven't watched any videos of but stood who out to me when I watched the Senior Bowl is CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste.

Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma 6-0 186


If this guy is sitting in round 6, I would love if Ted Thompson took him. Unfortunate injury and supposedly he wouldn't even be ready until the end of the NFL season. So much upside though.

I know nothing of the guy but if he has that much potential and the injury is one that does not really threaten that potential (ie full recovery) I wouldn't mind spending a pick on the guy. Is 6th round where he is picked to go or is it because of the injury? If the injury is the only reason he falls why not shelf a guy for a year? Hell they seem to do it with their first rounders all the time.

Got some new ones.

Jeff Janis WR 6-3 219 Saginaw Valley State

Dude runs a 4.42 40 time. 44 games played. 246 rec, 4305 yds, 17.5 ave with 46 TDs.

Ethan Westbrooks DE 6-3.5 267 West Texas A&M

4.90 40 time. In 29 games had 103 tackles 497.5 TFL and 26 sacks

Charlie at Walter's just had Janis mocked to us... His is historically one of the most accurate mocks around. Interesting. R5.

I'd like to see what everyone's definition of a sleeper is... some of these guys listed are mocked as high as Round 1. To me, a sleeper is a guy you find very late in the draft a 6th or 7th rounder, or a UDFA.

I go with a definition of a player that's not being talked about as much as other players that I think they are just as good as. Allen Robinson for example to me looks as good as any 1st/2nd round WR besides Watkins but I've seen very little said about him compared to other players in that range.

Uffda, I think there are some who may project higher than R6-7 but are more off the radar. Kind of like this kid:

Zach Moore DE 6-5 269 out of Concordia MN. 33 3/4" arms. This is one big dude from a Division II school. Could be a real gem.

http://www.nfl.com/draft...es/zach-moore?id=2543796

Another one:
Darrell Johnson OLB 6-1 248 East Carolina. Wow. This guy seems to have a very similar profile to Desmond Bishop, I mean, in terms of playing style and demeanor:

Robinson got a lot of love early on but his slow 40 time curtailed his buzz a bit. I've seen him mocked as high as Round 1...not lately, but he's been there before.

I agree with you...his YouTube clip is as good as any of them.

beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
