Would like to hear about who you guys think are sleepers/diamonds in the rough.

Ill start.

DT Montori Hughes

Big DT that was a highly rated prep player that was dismissed from Tennessee and finished out his college career at Tennessee-Martin.

CB/S Melvin White

Big fast athletic DB from Louisiana Layfayette that has played S and CB.

Casey Walker, DT, Oklahoma

6'1, 309

Moves very well for a big guy, reminds me a little bit of Jurrell Casey.

Glad to see this thread.

I am also glad DT is pretty loaded this year.

I kind of disagree about Montori Hughes. Yes, the raw ablity is there, but he put up mostt of his stats at the FCS level vs. a 2-win team. He should have dominated.

A player who played on the FCS level and DID dominate is Georgia Southern's Brent Russell. He too, however,has character issues.

My sleeper DT is Chris Jones of Bowling Green. 6-1, 292 and quick. Finished 4th in the nation with 12.5 sacks (a DT, mind you).

Regarding Hughes, he was double teamed quite a bit. Just in the youtube vid he was being doubled and still holding is ground quite well.

I want a NT that has the tools physically to excel at his position.

Russell and Jones are UTs. Although id prefer us to draft a potential starting NT I wouldnt be upset with those guys.

Leon is one of the best zone corners I've seen in awhile coming out. Damn good in run support as well.

We need a big physical corner that can play man and zone well.
