Instead of making a separate thread, here are some sleepers, smaller school and otherwise, who I am keeping an eye on, prospects that you may find interesting.
Ify Umodu-6'2", 210-Northern Arizona University. He's had injury issues that have kept him out of action so far this season and kept him from moving up any further. He's a dual sport guy, football and basketball. With that in mind, he has the sort of leaping ability and wide catching radius that you may expect. Good physical receiver, a good YAC guy too.
Je'Ron Hamm-6'3", 230-Louisiana-Monroe. For all those who want BIGGER wide receivers, Hamm is about as big as it gets. He's also a possibility as an H-back type, has a well developed body with some room to grow. He's improved year by year and presents a big physical target, a possession receiver for sure but one with solid, reliable hands who runs solid routes and attacks the ball with ferocity when it is in the air.
Gerald Ford-6'3", 210-Valdosta State. Had a monster 2012 season, won several awards, is a nicely talented receiver with better than ideal size and a big play threat down the field. One of the best small school WR's in the nation.
Matt Hazel-6'2", 200-Coastal Carolina. Outstanding small school WR, great route runner, terrific hands, looks to be a possession receiver at the next level, doesn't have the greatest speed but runs very smooth, precise routes.
DJ Coles-6'4", 235-Virginia Tech. Monster VT receiver, has been plagued with injury issues. He essentially hasn't played in about 2 years considering how limited his 2012 season is, to make it worse, he came in out of shape to start the season. He's an interesting prospect because of his size but a guy who will very likely go undrafted, still would be worth a look in the preseason.
Chris Boyd-6'4", 210-Vanderbilt. Another big, physical Vanderbilt receiver. Not as physical as Matthews but looks to have better overall speed. A high quality WR in his own right, well built, allows the ball to get into his body a bit too often but is pretty reliable as a receiver. Has tremendous balance and attacks the ball in the air, uses his size and length well to keep the defensive back away.
