Default Late declaring SS from Fresno could be a sleeper

Fresno State junior SS James Sanders declares for NFL draft.

I've watched this kid play since his freshman year and I could tell right away he was special. Great football instincts and really brings the wood. Very, very smart football player.

I think he should've stayed for his senior year and maybe worked his way into a first day pick but part of that is I wanted to see him as a Bulldog for another season. The bright side of this is that now he could be a steal for someone, maybe our beloved Texans.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Sanders and think I'm just another stoned Fresno State fan pimping my homeys, here's a College Football News article about him. This article was written prior to last season which was by far his best in terms of interceptions, sacks and forced fumbles.

Sucks for Fresno and sucks for him. He's not ready. That will hurt our chances of running the table next year. I think he can be good down the road (Coleman replacement in a few years). I would love to see him as a Texan though. Round 4-5. I've seen him since his freshman year too and he's very good to the ball. His coverage skills need some work. He's solid and should be good in the NFL in a couple years.

The Fresno Bee said today as high as 4th, so he'd be a good fit for us in the 5th. We have more pressing needs in the 4th.

Don't we have a good, young hard hitting SS already?

From what I've read Sanders has little chance of developing into a FS. A good SS, maybe; a good FS not very likely.

Another saftey who could be a sleeper....Rhodes from Lousiville. This guy is way underrated in my opinion. Will be a 3rd rounder, should at least be a 2nd. This guy is smart, an athlete, and one hell of a coverge guy who brings hits too. He was a team caption too, great leader. If he would have picked off a pass late in the 4th quater in Miami, Lousiville may be undeafted. One to watch out for.

Rhodes from Louisville impressed me I saw him play a few times this year. He'll go round 3
