I'm a huge Chris Rix fan, but this may be because I'm a Maryland Terps fan.
If we drafted him I would feel physically ill. Parquet, Rhodes, and Pettway sound really interesting. Thanks.
Some of my favorite lower round sleepers:
Trent Cole, E/OLB, Cincinnati
He will be a pro bowler at OLB in a 3-4. What's the phrase...book it.
Phillip Alexander, E/OLB, Duke
Same deal. 6-4/245/4.65. Broke lower leg this year. Might be able to redshirt. Has the athletic ability to play in 4-3 at LOLB.
Atiyyah Ellison, DT, Missouri
Has the size and athleticism and gives the effort. I feel like if you have those three things, you can contribute in the NFL at DT.
Boomer Grigsby, MLB, Illinois St
Never seen him play. Just like the name.
Best football name in years.
Roger Cooper, LB, Montana St
Just looks like a football player. Never seen him play.
Leroy Hill, SS, Clemson
Small, but man he's good. Guaranteed top special teamer and might beat the odds, make a good 3rd or 4th safety. Won't bet against him.
Andre Maddox, SS, NC St
Always around the ball. Great leadership skills. Plays a lot faster than he times.
Chris Kelly, SS/FS, Maryland
Best years are ahead of him. Has only started 1 year extensively on the defensive side of the ball. Very aggressive, hyper player who has the speed and hands to play the FS position, but not yet the understanding. Knee inuries early on.
Domonique Foxworth, CB, Maryland
Slight build, but has very good man cover skills, good hands, NFL quickness. Probably will measure 5-10/175. At worst he's a 3rd corner and has a chance to be a solid starter.
Lamont Reid, CB/FS, No. Carolina
Not much experience but great athlete. Looks a lot faster than the 4.5 time given on the draft countdown site.
Jerome Collins, TE, Notre Dame
Crazy athlete with size (6-4/260 and 4.55 speed), but not much of a player so far. Little experience at the tight end. Lack of a QB at Notre Dame further limited his learning of the position. The ultimate boom or bust player.
Tom Manus, WR/TE, Morgan St
I've seen him some as I live in Baltimore. Has the hands, but slow for WR. Runs smooth and has some quickness. Free agent TE type.
Chauncy Stovall, WR, Fla St
FSU receivers seem to translate very well to the NFL. Held back due to inability of Chris Rix to throw the ball with any accuracy.
Josh Haldi, QB, No. Illinois
Very impressed with him everytime I saw him. Plays smart, protects the ball, solid size, has an ok arm for a #2 QB. Mobility and a good leader. Makes terrific decisions with the ball. Killed Maryland last year. Can't find a scouting report, that's how much of a sleeper he is. Invited to combine.
