    Good article, would you be surpriced? If he's there in late 2nd round why not? He might the type of player that people are saying Tim Tebow will be in the NFL.

    I think we will end up loosing Harrison this year. This kid is a monster that played in an NFL type system, Kevin Ellison could be a starter for NE for a long time. 6'1" 220+ and hits hard, he has had some issues with his knees but if he can convince BB that he's healthy this guy can play.

    With Sanders and Meriwhether returning he will not need to start right away and learn. I think he'll be there in later rounds and could be a nice pickup.

    On offence, WR Ramses Barden this guy could be a future #1 NFL receiver. If he does not go on the first day I'll be surpriced, not often you see a 6'6" 229lb receiver that runs 4.5.

    Brinkley at ILB in the 4th and Ramses Barden in 5th. Take Patrick O' Chung in the 2nd at SS. I could see Javon Walker in the 3rd as well. As Always the Pats could trade up, down or out (2010) with all the picks they have right now.

    White would be an interesting player here, certainly. I think a guy like James Casey, however, has even more versatility (TE, FB, WR, QB, RB).

    Barden is moving up on scouts boards. I don't think he's available in the 5th anymore.

    Javon Walker? I'm confused . . .

    What do you all think about Tommy Breaux? He's 6'7 and runs a 4.5, maybe even faster. A raw WR, he played basketball at the college level, and has pretty good hands and jumps. Could stand to add some weight, but apparently the Patriots had a private workout with him. Good red zone threat?

    White wd surprise me--at least as a qb. But wd love to know what the Pats assessment of O'Connell is...

    I still think we pick up a vet like Byron Leftwich and let O'Connell be the no. 3 for one more year.

    Sleepers

    I'm not sure what happened to the last sleepers thread, so I thought I'd start a new one. With the Peppers rumors heating up and the talk about trading up for Maualuga, we've understandably started to overlook the lower rounds. Honestly, rounds 4 - 7 comprise the bulk of the draft, and how well we pick up quality depth--or even surprise superstars like Brady--goes a long way in determining how competitive we remain long-term.

    I'm sure you all have favorite underrated players to share, so let's discuss. Here are three sleepers who have really caught my interest.

    DT Everette Pedescleaux
    : extremely stout at the point of attack, Pedescleaux often faces double teams, many of which he defeats. He's 6'6 and 305 pounds, with a trim physique. I could see him adding an extra 5 pounds of muscle in our weight program and becoming virtually immovable against the run. He's also deceptively athletic for a big man, putting up 11.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks as a defensive tackle. His unit led their conference in rushing defense, although he admittedly played at a small school against questionable opposition.

    You can't question his motor, however. I love how he fights through two or three blockers to the quarterback, or hustles 20 yards down the field to tackle a WR. He plays hard, has a good nose for the ball, and absolutely obliterates centers or guards when left one on one. His YouTube highlight video shows quite a bit of game tape, both positive and negative, and I'm shocked that he isn't projected higher than the 6th or 7th round.

    RB Antone Smith
    : Although he will probably become a third-down back in the NFL, Smith reminds me of MJD. He's a bowling ball with great balance, vision, and speed, running his pro day 40 in 4.33 seconds. My favorite attribute? His jaw-dropping 31 reps on the bench. We've talked a lot about Devin Moore on this board, but this kid looks just as fast and even stronger. He wasn't used much in college, with only a couple hundred career carries, so he's extremely fresh. The highlight video I found shows he catches the ball cleanly and naturally out of the backfield, and can make a defender miss in the open field. Take a look.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fbFCU4zHiY

    LB Josh Mauga: A warrior. He played his senior season in pain, suffering from a torn pectoral muscle. He doesn't jump out at you on film, but he always seems to be in the right place at the right time, and by his own admission he loves to take on guards at the point of attack and blow up the play at the line of scrimmage. A former wrestler, he's not a flashy tackler, but once he gets his hands on a player, he always manages to take them to the ground.

    He's got decent size (6'2, 245) and speed (4.55 projected 40), and before injuring his knee in 07, had 3 interceptions and a few passes defended through 8 games, which tells me he can hold his own in coverage. As popular as Jasper Brinkley has become on this board, I think Mauga might be the better 3-4 prospect due to his physicality and nose for the ball. Consider this: he averaged over 11 tackles a game prior to his inury. Impressive. Once he recovers he should be primed to explode onto the scene at the pro level.

    I think BB likes O'Connell, he would be the insurance if something were to happen to TB. O'Connell is a big QB with a strong arm, he can step up mush like Cassell did last year. I don't know about a vet QB unless they come cheap but Byron will have a higher value since he did so well last year stepping up for the steelers.

    Re: Sleepers

    At this point there are no sleepers.  There are a lot of personal employees who have been doing years of evals on every potential pick.  Many 1000's of hours of preparation go into each draft.

    I'm with Kmaxx on this one. 2010 list is already posted. 
    Late round steals maybe.

    kory sheets, RB, Purdue.

    the guy has vision and knows how to run with patience. check him out on the u-tube

    he's also reportedly a hothead who has been critical of the Purdue QB and coach.
