NFL Draft Sleepers
Every team in the NFL draft is always hoping to find that late-round draft steal, a player that ends up being a pro bowl caliber player. There are not many if any, Tom Bradys out there.
Yet some players can be found yearly, like Amon-Ra St. Brown, who the Detroit Lions drafted in the 4th round last year, and he ended up leading the team in every receiving category as a rookie. Here are a few players who could potentially do the same this year.
Erik Ezukanma, WR, Texas Tech
A big-bodied receiver at 6’2″ 209 pounds measured well at his pro day with a 4.55 40-yard dash and a 26.5 inch vertical, currently projected as a 6th/7th round pick.
Bubba Bolden, S, Miami
At 6’3″, 209 pounds, he is the prototypical size for an NFL hybrid safety/linebacker; combine that with his 4.47 40-yard dash and his 109 tackles in college; the potential is there.
Jaylen Watson, CB, Washington State
At 6’2″ 197 pounds, Watson has the size teams are looking for in the next generation of corners. He has the potential to be an excellent zone coverage corner in the right fit.
