I was wondering what player do you think didn't get the recognition they deserve and might be a late pick succes story.

My choice is WR George Farmer out of USC. He had an injury plagued college carrer, when coming out of high school with Marqise Lee and Robert Woods (same high school Serra High) he was the best of the WR of the three.

His senior year in college he was able to show glimpes of who we thought he would be in college. He may not even be drafted, but he has a sub 4.5 40 and is now fully healthy. If he isn't drafted he could be a steal as a free agent.

Total homer pick, but mine is Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. His draft stock has risen immensely since the combine and he was featured prominently on Gruden's QB camp. Won't be at all surprised if he's the #3 QB taken behind Winston and Mariota - perhaps an early-mid 2nd rounder.

Were you referring to my pick as a homer pick?? I think both our picks were homer picks.

But that is OK because we follow our teams and know what we know about them. I think Grayson isn't much of a sleeper though. As you said his stock has risen. Farmer has no stock and may not even get drafted, but I really feel he will sign as a free agent and have a successful NFL carrer if he stays healthy of course.

Brett Hundley.

He's like a poor man's version of Cam Newton. I'd like to see him go to Cleveland cause he has a great shot at beating out that drunken idiot Manziel.

I was actually surprised Hundley didn't get drafted until the 5th round. I thought he was a sencond rounder. I agree with you, he was a poor man's Cam Newton.

As for my pick for this years sleep, George Farmer, well wasn't drafted as I thought, but Dallas did sign him as a free agent. He ran a 4.35 40 in his pro day. If he stays healthy, he will be a steal.

Nah I wasn't calling you out. Was merely openly stating that by being a CSU grad mine was a homer pick. Had a strong suspicion that Grayson would end up with the Saints. They worked him out multiple times prior to the draft.
