Most think of the University of Kansas as only a basketball school. While most of our players are considered "sleepers," Kansas actually has a good football team, even downing UH in their bolw game this year. Kansas plays a hard nosed, country football. They pride themselves in playing a smash-mouth style, in your face, I dare you to run at me, kind of defense. This is my KU. While I am trying not to be a homer, these are some of the sleepers that you will find on our roster. Kevin Kane, Kansas - Not the best LB on the team, but a darn good sleeper. He uses instincts and toughness more than anything else. Least potential out of this group. http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/kane_kevin00.html Charles Gordon, Kansas - Amazing athelete. He should have stayed another year. He excells at PR. He has amazing hands and very fluid hips (evident if you watch his shifty punt returns). He is a bit small, but lightning quick. Very raw, but very high ceiling. http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/gordon_charles00.html http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/060805aab.html Nick Reid, Kansas - Considered the "stud" of the defense. He is a force in the middle. He loves to hit, and does not miss. He is an excellent wrap up tackler with true MLB size. His instincts are great and he is a leader on and off the field. Mid round grade right now. http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/reid_nick00.html http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/121305aaj.html http://www.kusports.com/news/football_archive/story/116335 Charleton Keith - He is slightly undersized to be a full time DE, so he may shift to OLB. He is lightning quick off the snap. He played in a tough Big 12, and also played of the University of Minnesota. He is very raw, but has tremendous upside. He is one of the best tweeners who is not even getting noticed. He has put up numbers everywhere he has been, and has been a leader everywhere he has been. He is a leader on and off the field. I have seen him as high as the third, but mostly in the 7th or UDFA. http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=40395 http://kuathletics.collegesports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/keith_charlton00.html http://www.mnwest.mnscu.edu/athletics/football/Former Players/CharltonK.htm This is an overview of the defense as a unit, broken down by position. http://collegefootballnews.com/Big_12/2005_Previews/Kansas_defense.htm This is my school. I do not go with the flashy pick for my school. USC and UT be damned. Rock Chalk Jayhawks baby!!
