    Give me your five most underrated, here's mine:

    1.Caruan Reid, DT-Getting to the point where he might be unfit for this list. However if he's a fourth rd pick, it will be a steal.

    2.Kevin Norwood, WR-I really don't get why he isn't considered a third rd guy at worst even in an outstanding WR class. Would be a perfect replacement for Austin.

    3.Brent Urban DE-Think he's going to make some team very happy, especially if he ends up in a 3-4.

    4.Calvin Barnett DT-Trying to figure why many experts have him with a seventh rd grade? Has very good tools and character to be a solid dt in the league.

    5.Brett Smith, QB-Love this kid, I think he's going to be a Rich Gannon type player who may blossom late, but he will blossom.

    1.Dominique Easley DT - best film I've seen - injury history has really hurt his stock in some eyes.

    2.Dri Archer RB - Speed sells! Seen mocks where he is not even drafted.

    3.Taylor Lewan OT - People don't even want to draft him if he falls to us at 16. This is your RT for the next decade with Tyron Smith at LT and Frederick at C.

    4.Zach Kerr DT1 has the burst Marinelli looks for, can anchor and stop the run. Came from small school and some question his competition. The raw attributes are there!

    5.Telvin Smith WILL LB - we are looking for speed and this kid has it.

    Alexander What's it going to be then, eh?

    I agree Easley might be underrated.

    I think with him seemingly sliding down the board, Tuitt is becoming underrated. He played overweight in 2014 but if you watch his 2013 game footage, he's pretty athletic for a guy over 300lbs. His outrunning the Navy QB 90 yards for a TD is something you don't see everyday from a 300 pounder.

    Joel Bitonio- I know its extremely unpopular opinion....but I don't see much separating him and Zack Martin

    Chris Smith- 18 sacks the past 2 years in the SEC. Who cares about his head to toe height? Its meaningless when he has better length and strength of someone much bigger

    Phillip Gaines- A shad over 6' with 4.38 speed and little to no tightness in his hips. Huge potential for a mid round pick

    Lamin Bowin- Why isn't he talked about more here? Looks like an ideal WIL with the necessary size and speed combo.

    Jerrick McKinnon- If you were to generate the ideal NFL RB it might this kid. 5'9 210 with 4.4 speed and crazy quickness and change of direction. 1 of the better RB's in this draft

    McKinnon is an interesting name. Love to see the Cowboys take a run at him.

    I can't figure it out either

    In my talks with NFL scouts this week, one name that kept coming up was Alabama wide receiver Kevin Norwood. In a draft class dominated by underclassmen at the position, Norwood is seen as one of the most pro-ready players in the group. One scout also told me Norwood has "the strongest hands" of the entire class.

    1. Will Sutton- most don't like him because of his poor play in 2013 but he's still 2 time Pac 12 Defensive POY. If he's there in round 3 we'd better scoop him.

    2. Telvin Smith- again it's a weight thing and this is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Some think he's a tweener safety prospect but I think he'd be a stud playing WLB.

    3. Charles Sims- I watched him play every game his senior year and this kid electric. He's a Matt Forte clone, not the flashiest at times but gets the job done and he's an excellent receiver.

    4. Jared Abbredaris- Like Sims he was a highlight guy of the Senior Bowl but ever since I havent heard much. Ideal slot guy for us.

    5. Trent Murphy- 32 sacks in 3 years but his draft stock has plummeted since January. He's not flashy but very effective, if he's available at 47 I'd pull the trigger.

    I have to figure it's because he was a senior and didn't "dominate" numbers-wise. I see a guy who will play in the league a long time, and play well.

    I really like Sims for our offense. It's remarkable how much he is like Forte. Great skills and measurables for his size.

    1. Davante Adams, WR, Fresno St.- This guy is getting a bad rap because he played with Carr. I've seen scouting reports say that he didn't play well against top competition like USC but that is inaccurate. Go watch his USC tape and you'll see him beat the corners all game only to have Carr miss him badly. He is not a burner but has plenty of speed with excellent quickness in and out of his breaks. He is a true WR that just knows how to play the game. A team could get Keenan Allen production from this kid immediately.

    2. Jeremiah George, LB, Iowa St.- You guys want a Dexter Coakley clone at the WILL? This guy is super quick and pretty strong for his size. I swear he takes on blocks better than Shazier. I don't know why he ran a 4.91 but he definitely plays like a 4.5 guy on tape. Just watch and you'll see. Love to take him late or as an UDFA.

    3. Jonotthan Harrison, OG/OC, Florida- Good tape, solid measurables, big time program, and can play any interior position. This guy doesn't stand out but he is very solid across the board. He is the type that could be a quality backup immediately at guard and center. Would be a great 7th round pickup but I'm not sure that this guy will keep flying under the radar.

    4. DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn St.- Currently rated as a day 2/3 type of player but not many people are talking about him. Very strong will sneaky quickness. You can plug him in at the 1 right away and get good production from him. At 6'4 320 pounds he is bigger than Marinelli's usual 1 tech but his quickness and effort makes him a good fit.
