We all know about Andrew Luck and the rest of the heavily hyped NFL prospects but here is my insight on a few sleepers going un-noticed.

 

Alex Green #25 RB Hawaii

Green's stats are as follows: 133 carries for 1,168 yards with a 8.8 yards per carry average and scored 17 touchdowns. Green's stats for a RB at Hawaii are amazing. Hawaii is a very pass oriented team and no running back since Hawaii has adapted the run and shoot offense has gone over a 1,000 yards for the season except for Green. The most important stat to me is that he had a 8.8 ypc. The common argument against Green's stats would be that he plays in a very weak WAC. However against Boise St. he had 10 rushes for 107 yards and a touchdown. Against USC he had 9 carries for 66 yards and a 7.3 ypc with a touchdown. Green produced against solid teams, he had a fantastic performance against Fresno St. and a very productive night against Nevada.

Green is also has very good size. He stands at 6-2 230 pounds. He is a monster. Green is also very decesive. As soon as he see's the whole he's gone. Green is also good after the first hit and has better agility then you would think. Green shows very good vision and is a complete back. He had 26 receptions for 343 yards which proves he can be very dangerous out of the backfield. Green has run the 40 in as low as 4.49 but usually runs around 4.55 to a 4.6. If Green can run a sub 4.55 at his pro day then watch out.

 

Anthony Gaitor #7 CB Florida International University

Gaitor had a very productive year at CB for the Panthers. He recorded 50 tackles 36 of which were solo, 3 sacks and 2 picks. The interceptions coming against Rutgers and Texas A&M. Was a two time 1st team all Sun Belt selection for the Panther's in 09 and 08. Made the Rivals.com 2010 1st team all Sun Belt team as well.

Gaitor has good size for a corner in the NFL standing at 5-10 180 pounds. Gaitor consistetly runs a 4.5 40 but can run in the low 4.4's.

 

Matt Szczur #4 RB/WR Villanova University

Szczur is a superb athlete. He is a two sport star at Villanova playing both football and baseball. In 2009 Szczur led the Wildcats to a 2009 D-1AA national championship and was a consesus first team all american. However Szczur's senior year at 'Nova has been hampered by injury as he missed 6 regular season games.

Szczur has good siz for a NFL WR standing at 5'11 205 pounds. Szczur typically will run a mid to low 4.4 forty time, however he has been timed as low as 4.36. Szczur played almost every offensive position for the Wildcats, he played QB, RB, WR, and returned kicks and punts. Szczur's versatility should really help his draft hopes. Szczur is the ultimate all pupose player which is a big time value for teams out there.
