Default Sleepers

Here are a couple DT's worth checking out.

There are also a couple of rising small school DTs in Jared Smith of New Hampshire and Samford’s Nick Williams, although they took different roads to the party. Smith is a 3-year starter at UNH who had 12.5 career sacks and 26 total career tackles for loss; he also blocked 5 kicks in his career including three last fall. Williams, on the other and, is another late bloomer who didn’t play football until his senior year in high school and didn’t start for D1AA Samford until his 4th year on campus. He blossomed in 2012 though when he had 6 sacks coming up the middle. Both guys also solidified their claim to be legitimate late-round sleepers with impressive performances at the combine in February. Williams, in particular, measured in at a full-sized 6-4, 310 with long arms and big hands, and then went out and an a quick 4.94 40, which was just a couple of 100s behnd Sharrif Floyd’s pace-setting times for DTs. Williams, though, was actually even quicker over 10 yards (1.63 seconds to 1.68) than Floyd. Williams also posted a solid 28 reps in the bench press. Smith isn‘t quite as big at 6-3, 302, and was a tad slower with a 5.08 40 clocking, but that too was among the leaders at the position at the combine. Smth, though, was very quick in the agility drills posting the second fastest time among DTs in the 3-cone drill and the fastest in the short shuttle that was actually the 6th fastest time among all defensive linemen including the DEs.
