2012 NFL Draft Sleepers: Offense

Projected in the 4th round or later by CBS

Quarterbacks

Ryan Lindley: Successful back to back season to put San Diego State on the blip of relevancy for the first time since Marshall Faulk played there. first noticed him last year, when I drooling over 2011 NFL Draft sleeper Vincent Brown. Good size and pocket presence, but can throw it a bit inconsistently. Projected in the 4th round. Here’s a one minute highlight.

Running Backs

Robert Turbin: Good combination of size and speed. Came from a tough background and seems mentally strong. Extremely productive career and season, seemingly going for 100+ every game. Workhorse back. Ran fast at the combine, improving his stock and becoming more noticed.

Isaiah Pead: Tough, quick back. North to South runner with good feet. Great top end speed makes him a homerun threat. His hands combined with his special teams contributions will be valuable in more ways than one.

Wide Receivers

TY Hilton: Exciting player, who runs like Jahvid Best in the open field. Could contribute immediately out of the slot. Dangerous returner of kicks and punts.

LaVon Brazil: Underrated/appreciated receiver who can make plays. ESPN Tuesday night superstar.

DeVier Posey: Natural playmaking ability that he has been fine-tuning by working with Cris Carter leading up to the NFL Draft.

Tight End

David Paulson: Solid player for Oregon, who should be draftable. Gotten better every year.

James Hanna: Timed fast in this weak TE class. Coming from pro-style OU, should be a low-risk pick.

Offensive Line

Ben Jones: Long-time starter at UGA who has had many OL go to the pros. Versatile, hard worker.

Nate Potter: Another guy who has seen plenty of action in NCAA Football. Finesse blocker who does better in pass pro than in the running game.
