A few sleeper picks


Recommended Posts

Really like the Sumner pick. He is obviously beeastly strong; he had 6.5 tackles for loss, three blocked kicks, three passes defended, and two fumble recoveries last season. He also played a little fullback for the school and got 4 rushing TDs.

There's another kid from Colorado School of Mines who is an intriguing prospect as well: DE Mark Schiechl

"A 6'3", 260-lb. defensive lineman from Lakewood, Colo. (Bear Creek High School), Schiechl finished as the runner-up for the 2010 Gene Upshaw NCAA Division II Lineman of the Year Award. Schiechl became the all-time NCAA Division II career leader in sacks (46.0) during the 2010 season and concluded his career at CSM ranked fourth in the NCAA Division II record book in career tackles for a loss (70.5). Schiechl, who selected as the Defensive Player of the Game at the 2011 Cactus Bowl (annual NCAA Division II all-star football game), also earned First Team Don Hansen All-Super Region Three honors in 2010. Schiechl also garnered AP Little All-America, Daktronics All-America, First Team D2football.com All-America, First Team Don Hansen All-America and AFCA All-America recognition this season to become the first three-time All-American (2008, 2009, 2010) in the history of the CSM football program. Selected as the Daktronics Super Region #3 Defensive Player of the Year and the Don Hansen National Defensive Player of the Year, Schiechl also earned Daktronics Super Region #3 First Team Defense recognition, collecting the most votes among defensive linemen. A First Team All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference pick (lone unanimous selection on defense) in 2010, Schiechl was also named RMAC Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season. Furthermore, Schiechl garnered First Team National Football Foundation All-Colorado accolades and was selected as the NFFCC Defensive Player of the Year. Schiechl led the RMAC and tied for fifth in the nation in sacks (12.0) in 2010. Schiechl also finished first in the RMAC and eighth (tied) in the nation in tackles for a loss (19.0), as well as first in the RMAC and third in the nation in forced fumbles (six).Schiechl concluded the year with 66 total tackles (34 solo), five quarterback hurries and two blocked kicks."

Something about the Schiechl kid bothers me. I know he's a D2 guy, but with all the awards and recognition, don't you think maybe he has some sort of either academic or motivation issue?

Not knocking the kid, but if he's THAT good, shouldn't he have been D1?

Well, if Jerry Rice was so good, shouldn't he have been in D1?

I'm sure he probably had some academic or motivational issue.

Biermann was a standout at the D-2 level as well, and he's been a great bargain for us coming out asa 5th round prospect.

As Master Exploder pointed out, some players just don't play at D-1 for whatever reason. Some other players who are currently successful in the NFL after coming from a D-2 school:

Brent Grimes

Johnny Knox

Danny Woodhead

John Kuhn

Jahri Evans

Jon Kitna

Jacoby Jones

Darren Sharper

And of course, receiving greats Jerry Rice and Andre Reed both went to D-II schools.

Here is another sleeper

O. Schuylar TE

Under utilized in Northern Iowa's run heavy offensive attack. They had only 226 pass plays to about 540 run plays. Shuylar was still their 2nd leading receiver.

Mayock think he is a developmental TE who would be a mis-match as a receiver in 2 TE sets. He has all the measurable you want in a TE: 6'6'', 261 lbs, 4.61 forty time.

I'd take him in the 5th round.....and Dimitroff is known to take chances on small school kids in the later rounds.

Schuylar Oordt....that's my boy. Would really hope we will consider him in the last 2 rounds.

As for Sumner....****

Not every draft prospect takes the same road to the NFL. Some go to the SEC, others come from off the beaten path. Today’s guest - known as “The Vanilla Gorilla” - Blaine Sumner played his college football at DII Colorado School of Mines. Sumner started his college career as an undersized prospect and now checks in at 6’2” and 330 pounds with the 2010 Raw Squat American Record (805 pounds) under his belt
.

He holds the men's raw record in squat & deadlift, and also total weight. records
