Default Times when youve been correct about an underated college player

Someone in the Geno Atkins thread in JN said he predicted Geno would do good but not THIS good. And it got me thinking. I bet ALOT of board members have called a college guy being a beast in the league when maybe nobody else agreed or simply nobody talked about the player.

Only stipulation is the player couldnt have been drafted in the top 15 of his respective draft(Cuts out the sure things).

So who did you KNOW was gonna be monster but didnt get alot of attention at the draft?

Well I do remember rooting for picking DeSean Jackson even if i don't think he was underrated. If not, i would say Demarco Murray, Colin Kaepernick & Russel Wilson were my kind of pick.

It may be too early to call them great now, but i've seen their potential on draft day. (still I can't believe Kaep stay till second round. He was CLEARLY better than Jake Locker & Blaine F* Gabbert!). I did call Matt Leinart, Jimmy Clausen overrated (easy call I know).

BUT i Wiffed a couple of time too thinking Todd Reesing Jr. would be a starter in this league(Guess Dezmon Briscoe too). If not Mardy Gilyard, Joe McKnight, Mike Kafka were highly rated in my board too....

I really wanted Ray Rice, and Matt Forte in their draft. And Chris Johnson.

It wasn't me, but a friend of mine hyped up Marques Colston.
