Default Who Are Your Sleepers?

One of my sleepers was Travis Kelce, Mike Gillislee - RB - Florida was another sleeper of mine.

I think Gillislee is the opposite of a sleeper. Overrated. Nothing more than a backup RB in the NFL.

Gillislee is a sleeper. He was the work house of a flat Florida offense.

DeVonte Holloman, S/OLB, South Carolina- Has speed, can be a special teamer this year and clear some garbage from the Bengals LB position. Plus would give the Bengals another LB who can cover.

LaAdrian Waddle, OT, Texas Tech- Suffers against speed, but if he was moved inside to play guard, would be tough. Plus could move outside to play RT, replacing Roland, in a pinch.

Almost forgot, TCU's Josh Boyce.

Boyce had a solid debut as a redshirt freshman in 2010. He caught 34 passes for 646 yards and six touchdowns with Andy Dalton at quarterback. Boyce was a good weapon for Casey Pachall last year, hauling in 61 passes for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. Boyce had a massive game with five receptions for 163 yards and three touchdowns against Boise State. He has some real speed to burn.

Mike James. RB. Miami FL. Had an underwhelming season playing behind stud freshman Duke Johnson. I think he do well at the combine and make a name for himself. Has the size at 5'11" 220 lbs and decent speed in open field.

As far as guys we could use Robbie Rouse RB pretty good tools, Eric Fisher T big strong guy that no one really knows, Jakar Hamilton S solid safety, Aaron Mellette WR 6'3" 218lbs and has a lot of potential, Ace Sanders WR possibly the fastest guy in the SEC, which says a lot and plays a lot bigger than his size.

Emory Blake WR, Auburn..........Emory was rated as a top 10 wide receiver (normally between 5-8) prospect by several draft sites prior to the 2012 season. Unfortunately, as you might have noticed, Auburn University totally ****** arse this past year. If we don't address the WR need in either FA or earlier, I think Emory could be a solid 6th rd selection. Plus he's the son of former Bengal QB Jeff Blake..........................................

Got a few of my sleepers on your list. I really like Jakar Hamilton,
Aaron Mellette is not considered much of a sleeper anymore and neither is Eric Fisher T Central Michigan (who's now being talked about as better than Luke Joeckel.

WR Justin Brown, Oklahoma
C Patrick Lewis, T A&M
DE Armonty Bryant East Central Oklahoma
OT Lane Johnson Oklahoma

Like a few others have stated, Dennis Johnson. Would love to pick him up late in the draft.

I was thinking of him as a sleeper most of the year...but after the Alabama game I don't think he could count as a sleeper anymore.


I'd like us to try as grab Ryan Swope WR TAM if he falls to the 3rd or later...

However he never played as well as he looked like he should. If some NFL team lighhts a fire under his butt he could be an animal.

Cierre Wood. Every bit as good of a runner as any of the guys being talked about going early. Averaged 6.7 YPC at ND this year.

OLB Etienne Sabino tOSU

6th/7th rounder, missed most of his senior season due to a broken leg, otherwise would have put up impressive numbers. The Bengals need LB depth, and he would be a good special teamer as well.
