Who's your Sleeper pick?

SS James "Thunder" Early out of Detroit.
Toby Gerhart

A sleeper because this is not a position of perceived need.
A throwback player with the heart and toughness that will appeal to Sing.
Scott attended several Stanford games this year, and is very familiar with Toby. Moving up draft boards with a strong Combine.

I think we need to review the definition of a "draft sleeper". Here is something I pulled off the web earlier:

A sleeper should not be on your immediate radar. A sleeper should be, by definition, tucked away under a serious blanket of almost complete anonymity. If you have heard his name more than once, chances are, he's not a sleeper. If your buddy tells you, "keep an eye on Brian Price of Penn State—he's a beast"! Ummm, that's NOT a sleeper. However, if the guy eating peanuts at the bar says to you, "ya know, I think that kid Porter from LaTech could be the next Willie Parker", and you find yourself saying "who"? Then, THAT is a sleeper. These guys may or may not be at the NFL Combine. They may or may not be called on the first day, but, eventually you will know their names. And, when that happens, look out because you may very well be a witness to history in the making.

Bearing that definition in mind, my pick is

Deji Karim, RB Southern Illinois (.....full credit to OTC for this pick)

Southern Illinois RB Deji Karim was timed by one scout at 4.37 in the forty-yard dash at Thursday's pro day workout.

Not invited to the Combine, Karim also posted an impressive 43-inch vertical and 10'3" broad jump. After sitting out 2008 with a patella tendon injury, he rushed for 1,694 yards (7.1 YPC) and 18 TDs as the 2009 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year. The Saluki looks like a possible late-round gem.

I said a long time ago that I liked Tim Tebow due to his demeanor and work ethics and I liked his leadership quality. Not many were sold on him, but look at how he's turning heads now!

He has the skills, the fire and the leadership to pull it through and so, he's my dark horse for being a successful player in the NFL.

Reminds me of a young Steve Young ... no pun intended. Just has raw talent!
