Adopt a Sleeper

28 posts in this topic

I thought it would be fun for everyone to adopt a sleeper (someone believed to go 6th or later including UDFA). You can only pick one that has not already been taken. Then give a short reason why you think they will succeed. Hopefully the Draft section will survive and not delete this so we can bump it next year or after the season.

Mine is AJ Jackson - WR California (PA)

Big (6'5" 250lbs) , strong, physical, has a great set of hands, and is a devastating run blocker. Would fit perfectly in a power run scheme such as ours or the Steelers. Would make an excellent redzone threat. Could also add some bulk and move over to TE were he could become the next Gates (has that type of athleticism).

I know several guys in here like him but I want Kyle Williams out of Arizona st. He is a Steve smith type receiver who is tough, catches the ball extremely well, runs good routes, and has exceptional quickness. Oh and he runs a sub 4.40 forty!!!! He could help out on special teams as a returner until he learns the offense...remind you of anyone?

Anyways, he may never be anything more than a backup but I think that he has the tools to excell as a slot receiver and a playmaker.

Time for me to be a NC State homer.

Willie Young in the 6th round.

I hope for that simply for the Young vs Taylor arguments we'd have all offseason.

I got two.

Oderick Turner WR 6'3" 205 4.48-40 yard Pitt

Why?: Great blocking WR that didn't get many passes because Stull had tunnel vision. I think he would be great on the end for Williams and Stewart in the run game. He is similar to Muhsin Muhammad as is.

Travis Timmons DT 6'3" 300 5.1-40 yard UCF

Why?: He seems to be a solid late rounder or UDFA. Less heralded than Troup but not no slacker. Leslie Frazier of Vikings seems to love the kid they say.

I think Willie Young could play qb better than armanti edwards too

I would have selected this one too. His high light video is most impressive. He has attitude.

toby gerhart

Gerhart is no sleeper, he is projected to go in the third.
