Five NFL Draft Day Sleepers To Watch (Jonathan Williams & More)

We all know the names that are going to be selected tonight, but what about the players who could go on Day 2 or Day 3?  Who should we be watching for closely?  Here’s our list of sleepers to pay attention to over the next few days:

 

Marshaun Coprich, RB, Illinois State

“Remember running backs come in all shapes and sizes.  Just because Coprich isn’t a first round pick…  Or a second round pick…  In fact, there’s a chance he goes undrafted…  None of it matters because the potential is there.  It’s just a matter of him finding the right spot, proving his talent and getting the chance.”

D.J. Foster, RB/WR, Arizona State

“At 5’10” and 193 lbs. could he fit as a slot receiver in the mold of a Julian Edelman (5’10”, 200 lbs.) or Wes Welker (5’9”, 185 lbs.)?  Given the size comparison and the Patriots’ need for help at WR (as well as RB for that matter), you immediately have to hope that Foster finds his way to New England during the draft process.”

Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State

“He may not be a WR1, though there’s no question about his ability to run solid routes and to catch the football.   It wouldn’t be shocking to see him emerge as a solid WR2 and a productive option, as opposing defenses focus on the “top” option on the team.”

Charone Peake, WR, Clemson

“It makes sense that his name isn’t being bandied about with the top options in the draft, though that doesn’t mean that the upside isn’t there.  He certainly has the size, speed and athleticism, it’s a matter of him finding the right home and overcoming the questions that hang over him.”

Jonathan Williams, RB, Arkansas

“Just think, if he had come out a year ago he likely would’ve been viewed as a potential second or third round pick.  One injury later and he’s dropping to the later rounds.  If he’s healthy he has the same upside that he did, though that’s a major question.”
