    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)

    http://www.nfldraftdog.com/2008_nfl_..._nfl_draft.htm

    http://www.draftseason.com/Underrated

    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.
    This is funny Marrdro, because a draft nut buddy of mine at work was just talking about Brinkhaus the other day and saying that he could be a very good NFL lineman at Center or elsewhere. I would love to see us look to upgrade our line in rounds 2-5 so that we can get some quality there to help with pass protection.
    You know me, I am sold on Mozes as the future behind Birk but this guy looked promising as well and after the McKinnie issue I am feeling they will look to get some young (if they can get any younger) backups in to learn the system.

    How about a late round TE?

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=19565

    Draft Scout Snapshot: DS Rating on 08/12/07: #15 TE, #292/750 Overall, Projected: Rnd 7-FA
    12 GP; 12 GS; Rec: 54-565-10.5-7 in '06; Led team and was sixth in the MAC in receptions (4.5 per game)…54 catches is the most ever by a UT tight end, shattering the previous mark of 37 by Andrew Clarke in 2002. 12 GP; 4 GS; Rec: 31-355-11.5-4; Second-team All-MAC in '05. 13 GP; 0 GS; Rec: 3-63-21-0; Played in 13 games, making three catches in '04. Sat out the season due to NCAA academic requirements in '03.

    I kindof discounted all TE's because I think we are set there but the book I have on him has him ranked as the 19th best TE in the draft.
    Thier knock on him is he is slow off the line and bad at getting in and out of his cuts (not good for a WCO).

    They do say he has some of the best hands in the draft at the TE position.

    CB Al Phillips, Wagner

    This small school corner had 17 interceptions in his career!
    And he can return kicks.

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=32541

    01/15/08 - East Coast Bowl Review: Press corner, even at a generous 5'11" listing. Has the hips to stay with his man downfield. Showed good recovery speed picking off a pass downfield. Went up high to grab the ball, showing a nice vert. That's not surprising, however, since he had 17 interceptions during has career. He didn't get a chance to return in this game, but he will get that chance in the pros after averaging 11.2 per punt return and 27.6 per kick return with a touchdown this season.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    I know no onw cares but I say take a chance on Tommy Blake

    Was thought to be the next coming on Dwight Freeny but also played the run.
    Had a mental break down which has moved him from a top 5 pick to a 5th rounder.
    WHy not take the gamble if he is there around round 5 for a chance to get the # 1 rated pass rusher at the begining of the season.

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/profile.php?pyid=13446
    He Pro Day and Combine results aren't that great looking because he is fighting o get down to his playing weight of 255 - 265. By training camp
    he will be back to tip top form.

    In 3 weeks he went from 287 to 278
    Very interesting.
    I kindof discounted him (you know I am looking at LDE's) cause my book has him at 252lbs and it said he was in the hospital most of last year with some unknown illness.

    You know anything about that?
    His unknown illness was depression. He started seeking treatment for it and rebounded well. he finished the season with 16 1/2 tackles for a loss. I know the memory of Underwood will have more than a few weary on Blake but I think he is a steal in the 5th round. The difference between Underwood and this guy is we aren't investing a 1st on him and he has sought help and treatment for his depression. I also thing his help system has stepped in and are doing a great job. I believe that he is living with his parents who plan to live with him when he is drafted. He is also workin with a very talented trainer to get his 40 and bench press back up.

    Stats junior year was

    4.55
    40 @ 255
    27 bench press
    36 inch Vert

    I think in the pros his playing weight will be 265 or 270.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    I think this guy is worth a 6th or 7th round pick

    [youtube=425,350]Zqi9JKzKWzs&NR=1[/youtube]

    Jerome Felton, FB Furman

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=25655

    Draft Scout Snapshot: 2007: Underwent minor arthroscopic left knee surgery in February…Started all eleven games at fullback, leading the team with 165 carries for 705 yards (4.2 avg) and twelve touchdowns…
    Check out this pancake block!
    [youtube=425,350]4vmtEhSTCaI[/youtube]

    He is perfect for short yardage situations and could develop into our eventual starter at FB.
    In the meantime he could help us on special teams.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    This guy is a DT that has seen his stock rise since the combine:

    Nick Hayden from Wisconsin (think Hovan except better since he's not juiced up and overrated)

    http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/p...ospect_ID=1471

    2008 NFL Draft Prospect - Scouting Report
    Nick Hayden is an underrated defensive tackle. The Wisconsin senior has played in 44 games the last four seasons for the Badgers, with 39 consecutive starts. Hayden isn't the biggest or the quickest defensive tackle, but finds himself in the backfield on a consistent basis.

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    This is a guy that I've been hoping to see in purple for a while now.

    J Leman, ILB, Illinois

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings....php?pyid=9800

    I don't know if he qualifies as a sleeper since he was one of the best linebackers in the nation last year, but he has been out of all the pre-draft hullabaloo with an ankle injury.
    Hopefully we are smart and draft him when he has great value in the fourth or fifth round.

    02/29/08 - It’s true, Leman, the All-American who helped Illinois reach the Rose Bowl last season, got his undergraduate degree in 2006 and a master’s in 2007. “I tried to get the most out of my scholarship,” Leman told a curious flock of NFL regulars whose jaws hit the floor of the RCA Dome’s media center.
    There was only one crappy youtube clip of one tackle, so I posted his informercial instead:

    Re: 2008 NFL Draft Sleepers

    This guy is perfect for our current roster situation and drafting him later would allow us to pick just about anyone in the first round.

    Brian Johnston, LDE, Garner-Webb

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...php?pyid=68159

    2007: Started all year at left defensive end leading the Big South and ranking third nationally with 24 stops for losses of 115 yards…His 24 stops for losses rank third on the school's season-record list…Led the team and ranked second in the league with six sacks for minus 41 yards…
    If he and Robison both started at the ends, we would have the vaunted "Reverse Oreo" front four. ;D
    Or the "Brian Williams Brothers."
