    What are your NFL draft sleeper picks

    Doesn't necesarily have to be a no name, but just a pick that no one expected like Brian Leonard or Donnie Avery.

    Here are some of Mine

    Robert Ayers, DE, Tennessee/Michael Johnson, DE, Gerogia Tech.- Spags likes D-line depth and if is anything like his mentor Andy Reid he will draft a linemen. Also Hall, Little, Adenyanju, and Moore all FA's next year. That is every DE, but Long. Spags has said Long is a natural LE, so Johnson's upside may be attractive at RE.

    Frantz Joseph, MLB, Florida Atlantic- Beastly against the run, extremely physical and a tackling machine. He will light you up. He is great in coverage, but be scared coming over the middle when this guy is there, becuase knock your block off.

    Chris Ogbonaya, RB, Texas- Big pounding back, who is a great reciever and blocker. May be an ideal backup to S-jax

    Nate Davis, QB, Ball State- Falling like a rock, but he has gun

    Jovan Belcher, LB, Maine- only 6'1 230, but 17.5 tackles in both the past 2 seasons and 9.5, and 8 sacks

    Bradley Fletcher, CB, Iowa- Size and Speed combo and has consistantly improved coverage skills

    Aaron Kelley, WR, Clemson- Great junior year, terrible senior year. We need size keep and eye on him.

    Re: What are your NFL draft sleeper picks

    When I thought Michael Johnson was going to fall to the second round I thought he was a great value pick. But because of his unbelievable pro-day, he has almost locked up first round status. If he did fall to the second round I would take him in a heartbeat though.

    I also like Kelly alot, and Davis could be good. But isn't Ogbonaya like 27 years old, or am I thinking of a different Longhorn?

    Re: What are your NFL draft sleeper picks

    Definitely Frantz Joseph I think he might be one of the best true MLBs in the draft and I would personally like to see Curry taken number one and Frantz taken in the 6th that would be a great linebacking core in 2 years.
    At WR I'm not sure where Jarett Dillard is going to be taken, maybe 3rd round but he has unbelievable start and stop ability and has the most fluid hips in the draft. His route running is amazing because of this, and he has a chip on his shoulder because of his height. I'm not sure if he is what our offense needs but there is a reason he was in the range of yardage and TDs with the likes of Fitzgerald and Randy Moss.
    Beatty is getting respect now but the holes he created for Donald Brown were mostly individual efforts and his run blocking is very underrated.
    Curtis Painter at QB also. Im not sure where he is projected to be taken but he has the best release in the draft and has a great arm. His production was really low because he had no line and no one to throw it to this year, but the year before he had alot of talent that could of inflated his numbers. Its prolly healthy to take the middle ground and look at his talent, give him 2 years to adjust to the game and then hope he can take over for bulger.

    Ayers and Johnson are both expected to go in the first round, so I don't really think they would be sleepers in round two. "Incredible value" may be a better term to use.

    Myron pryor took up alot of blockers in the SEC. A few pounds lighter than Raji but ran a 5.06 to raji's 5.13. I like his quickness off the ball. Could be a menace if the right coach gets hold of him.

    I'm on the same page. This guy was rated in the top three picks going into the season. Boy has he really fallen. I still think he's gonna be a good one.. I'm still hopeing he falls to round two...

    Ayers isn't projected to be a first rounder, and Johnson maybe.

    Henry Melton DE Texas....6'3 265 4.65 40 time. Converted from FB his sophmore season and played well paired with Orakpo on the other side. Great closing speed to the QB, had a big sack against OSU in the Fiesta Bowl. Would be an interesting look in Round 4
