    Now, a year later, he has gifted us with another set of players who come in a step below the under-the-radar guys: the guys from schools so small that we have never heard of them (the schools), with team nicknames that boggle the mind (what is an "Oredigger"? Where might one find such a creature?). Its pretty easy to become a draftnik who can bloviate knowledgeably about the top 100 players in the draft (I should know, this described me with discomfiting accuracy). Lissyyyy, however, distinguishes himself: no draft book features these names; you won't hear these players uttered from between Mike Mayock's lips. No, indeed.

    This list is the result of cold, hard research. In the comments section, he modestly claims to "just keep my ear to the ground and good ole detective work." I suspect its a bit more laborious and complex than all that. If you doubt this, take a look at some of the names on his list (here) and tell me honestly whether you have ever heard of them:

    •DE/OLB Keith Darbut
    •DE/OLB Marc Schiechl
    •OG/NT Leslie Michael Jasper (who is a biiiig man, BTW)
    •WR Demario Ballard
