    2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    You got a kid or found a link that you think has some interesting prospects that guys like me have never heard of.
    Post it here.

    Here are a few links I frequent as I mine for the nuggets of this draft (Marrdro waits for Z's obvious post that has no football value at all
    ;D)

    Tony Brinkhaus : Center : Minnesota : Ht: 6'3 Weight: 295 lbs.
    Brinkhaus is the anchor on the Gophers offensive line. Will be very attractive to NFL scouts as a athletic center. Is able to play any position on the offensive line. Plays with a lot of aggression and has quite the mean streak. One of the best offensive lineman in the Big Ten.

    I think you know about him, and he made noise at the combine, but I still like the idea of Josh Johnson at some point during the second day of the draft.
    He has the size and speed to play wide receiver.
    His numbers are crazy, but did not play at the highest level.
    I hope they bring him in for a look at least.

    I also like the big wide receiver from Arkansas, Marcus Monk, as a post-draft free agent.
    Numbers were strong as a junior, but played limited time this year.

    solid info Marr, but in my short time as a PP.O member, i can't say i'm surprised.

    I like Marcus Monk too, we have to remember that his QB situation has been "dog heave" for the past 2 seasons as well.
    if they had a qb, the past couple years, Arkansas would have been just as good as UF or LSU, scary.

    Thanks my friend for the kind words.

    I will start really working on my final mock now that I have all my data (I order a couple of Magazines).
    They have alot of guys I've never heard of so I will start digging and will post prospects I see of interest.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    Pierre Garcon, WR – Mount Union
    One of the most productive receivers in the draft, Garcon had career numbers of 246 catches, 4,380 yards and 60 TDs. He measured out at nearly 6’ and 210 pounds. His combine numbers were 4.48 in the forty, 20 bench press reps and a 36” vertical. He was at or near the top 10 in every statistical category amongst WRs at the Combine. Garcon plays for a dominant DIII team, and seems to have caught the scouts’ eyes. It could take him a little time to adjust to the speed of the NFL, but he could be one of those needle in a haystack players who comes out of nowhere and surprises everyone.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    Some real interesting guys on this one as well.

    Pig Brown (S, Missouri) - Brown is as tough a safety as you will ever see. He's a very physical presence in the middle of the field and that alone will force quarterbacks to try and keep the ball away from his area of the field. He was one of the keys to Missouri's stellar run this year and racked up 70 tackles, 4 PBUs and 3 INTs in just 8 games before tearing his achilles. He also has top notch intangibles including great leadership qualities and could end up being the captain of an NFL defense in the next few years.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    Sorry, but I love these things.

    HBCU’s have notoriously been fertile grounds for the NFL and this year is no different.
    Everyone knows about Tennessee State’s Domique Rodgers-Cromartie after the Senior Bowl.
    But a new HBCU prospect announced his presence this week at Alabama’s Pro Day.
    Little known Stillman College CB/KR Brian Witherspoon (5-10 3/8, 178) stole the show from his SEC counterparts. Witherspoon, who is also an All-American sprinter posted numbers of a 4.33 seconds forty, 40 inch vertical,
    4.36 seconds in the short shuttle, and a cone drill of 6.86 seconds. Witherspoon is a fluid athlete with good change of direction and looked very good in corner and return drills.
    His times in the forty and cone drill would have placed him with the Troy State potential top 15 pick Leodis McKelvin’s combine numbers.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    I like that Josh Johnson too, but at this point he's hardly a sleeper.
    Ranked as the 6th guy here
    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/players.php?genpos=QB&draftyear=2008&sortorder=tsx pos&order=ASC

    Here's the stats I like, 68% completions, 43 TDs/1 INT!!
    Now that's a nice ratio!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
