How do you know they are not at that level before they play in the NFL?

Mathis was a 4th rounder and Colston nearly went undrafted. Surely there are guys rated as highly as them at this point who can possibly play at their level?

I said maybe. But the problem with small school guys is that they dont get a chance alot. Mathis got a chance because of special teams. Colston got a chance because of injury. I could be completely wrong, but no one stands out to me. So yea, its possible.

Maybe not small school, but he is a sleeper. He is way underrated and overshadowed by the rest of his team.

Oh yea, all those guys will be drafted. And there are quite a few D1aa, D2 and D3 guys who have talent. But in their first year, they might not make a big splash.

How good is David Ball supposed to be? He broke Jerry Rice's record for most cathces in I-AA (or maybe it was all of the NCAA).
