View Full Version : GBN sleepers

A number of other small-school draft prospects, though, haven't received quite as much national attention to date. Perhaps the biggest - both literally and figuratively - of the emerging non-BCS prospects invited to this year's combine in Stillman DT Sammie Lee Hill. No shrinking violet, Hill is a 330-pound space-eating interior defensive lineman with exceptional strength and surprising short-area quickness. And while known primarily as a run-stuffer, Hill was also a strong pass-rusher at the lower level, racking up 17.5 career sacks including 7.5 in 2008. Indeed, at 6-4, Hill could also get some looks from 3-4 teams as a DE, although he lacks much in the way of closing speed with a projected 40-clocking in the 5.25 range.

There is also some decent small-school size on the other side of the line starting with Tennessee State OT Cornelius Lewis, a 6-4, 315-pounder with decent quickness, who generally dominated at the lower-level of competition after transferring from Florida State.

i really like lewis but i dont think there are as many tackle sleepers come draft day. most tackles dont fall, they rise and insane amount, just look at Sam Baker last year.
