And Finally.... My sleepers

Here is my 2011 list of sleeper picks for the NFL Draft


Tressor Baptiste(2) (3) MLB Texas A&M Kingsville 6’ 232: Doesn’t have great measurables, but reminds me of a young London Fletcher. Short and slightly undersized, but they have great feet, good athleticism, and superb instincts in the run game and pass game. (5th-PFA) Might be my favorite on this list.


Nathan Enderle QB Idaho 6’4 240: Great intelligence, called a lot of his protections and plays, played under center in a pro style offense, big arm, good touch, obviously good size, despite average combine numbers has decent athleticism. Played on a very bad team with no protection, running game, or receivers. (3rd-7th)


Zach Williams OG/C Washington State 6’3 309: Played a lot of games, has good agility, very strong, played both OG and OC and played well despite being on a bad team. Has some learning to do picking up complicated blitz schemes. (7th-PFA)


Phillip Livas WR/KR/PR Louisiana Tech 5’7.5 180: This years version of Dexter McCluster. More of a WR than RB in comparison to Dexter but have many of the same attributes like superb quickness and unexpected strength for their size; playmaker. (6th-PFA)


Andre Holmes WR Hillsdale 6’5 210: Incredibly productive 104 rec 1,368 yds with good speed and size 4.45 40 (4th-6th)


Darnell Williams WR CW Post  6’5 215: Ramses Barden clone(If you don’t know who that is, think Jon Baldwin) great hands and size/strength. Not sudden and doesn’t run great routes yet, but has ability with the ball in the air. Not sure why he’s playing at CW Post. (7th-FA)


Ron Parker S Newberry 6’ 206: Not a great tackler yet, but is an extremely gifted athlete running a 4.35 40 at his size. More of a camp body with potential. (PFA)


Kevin Rutland CB Mizzou 6’ 190: Still learning the position having switched to CB from QB in college. Smart with good size, athleticism and good ball skills, good look/leaner. (4th-6th)


Anthony Gaitor CB FIU 5’10" 177: Good speed 4.48 Good NB possiblities at the next level & good tackler, gets off blocks well for his size, good production. (6th-PFA)


Colin Cochart TE South Dakota State 6’5 255 4.71 Good blocker, good balance(Important for blocking), good strong hands in traffic, somewhat slow (UDFA)


Jeremy Ross WR/PR/KR CAL 6’ 200: 4.44 YAC type player, that’s quick & strong. Poor man’s Jerrel Jernigan (Might be other way around), bigger and stronger.(4th-PFA)


Doug Hogue OLB Syracuse 6’3 235: Athletic former RB still learning the position, but is strong and quick. (4th-7th)


Josh Bey OLB Tennessee-Martin 5’11 222: Very Quick/fast good motor skinny but agile and can get to the QB well on blitzes. has ability as a nickel LB or WLB. Very productive when looking at impact plays, more so that just straight tackles. (6th-PFA)



Richard Sherman (1) CB Stanford 6’3 195: Aggressive and athletic gambler,  with tons of raw potential.. Formally a WR that actually had production at the position, but was also a playmaker at the CB position. Has Nnamdi Asomugha like ability. (4th-5th)


Darvin Adams WR Auburn 6’2" 190:  Smooth, athletic, good body control/hands. Not sure how good this guy really is, but he’s always making plays. (7th-PFA)


David Erby OLB South Carolina State 5’9 227: Hard hitter, short, quick in transition. Not big enough to make it at LB in our system, but he could be a very good special teamer. (UDFA)


Rahim "The Dream" Moore S 6’ 207 Smooth, extremely smart, high character, good athlete, sure tackler. Has work to do in the run game, but he’s not afraid to hit. Does his best work however in coverage. (1st-2nd)


(Some guys I’ve never heard anyone talk about or even single out, but they stuck out to me; usually when watching other players’ games.)



Michael Campbell WR Temple 6’2" 210: Good deep threat. Only runs a 4.56(Nothing to sneeze at for his size), but over the last 20 yards he is accelerating quicker than players like Greg Little or even AJ Green. Isn’t great at fighting for the ball in the air, but he was fairly productive with almost nothing at QB. He’s also a strong guy, built like Greg Little, and he had the bench numbers to show for it with 20. Not sure if there is anyone in the draft that separates more down the field with speed than this guy.(7th-PFA)


Joshua Victorian CB Louisiana Tech 5’10" 190: Very aware player with good short area quickness with a 1.50 10 split with good 3 cone and 20yd shuttle times. Plays the ball very well in the air, as evidenced by the number of PBU’s he had. Good balance. Very strong having played some safety (22 Bench reps, which would have been one of the best for CB’s at the combine). Good at getting off of blocks and quick to recognize the run. Has the ability to play special teams as well as any DB position. (PFA)
