    Yea, there are a few guys. Maybe not to the level of Colston or Mathis (in KR) buut guys who could make significant contributions.

    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).
