'under the radar' -- meaning 3rd rd or lower. not one of the guys whose name is constantly being rattled off as a top-40 pick. this year, there are going to be several guys who can probably play in the league that end up as UDFA dudes. but, in rounds 3-7 there will DEFINITELY be a bunch of receivers who may end up as really good players who teams will heavily count on. just look at the lists of draft hopefuls at wr--it goes on and on and on. so, pick one guy you think will be a productive starter or maybe a go-to guy after a year or two of development.

my guy is bruce ellington from south carolina. this guy is hugely athletic in the sense that he has great balance and poise when moving fast in any direction. the nfl will not be a big physical challenge to him; he's got the goods. HE WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE SEPARATION.
it will probably take him a good year to learn the ropes, but after that--watch out.

who's your guy...and why?

Kevin Norwood

Cody Hoffman, BYU
I would say Janus but he is not quite under the radar he just is a small school receiver
I would say Kevin Norwood Alabama
Ellington, if he is under the radar. I think he used to be.
Jeff Janis. Size, speed, quickness, and production, even though it was against weak competition.

He dominated that competition. Double covered most of the time and still put up huge numbers. 1600 yards receiving and 19 ypc. He is definitely my dark horse candidate, whoever is lucky enough to grab him will love him.

Is Jeff Janis that white kid?

Yes. Janis and Abbrederis were the only 2 white receivers at the combine.
Abbredaris. He's Welker with better size and speed. Think Ed McCaffrey.
IU WR Cody Latimer. Big strong WR that has really good hands.

Kevin Nordwood hands down. I'm not even an Alabama fan, in fact I hate them, but he was always on point for them.
200 pounds -- get him in the weight room and add 10 pounds and he's essentially a carbon copy of DaVante Adams.
32 1/8" arms
10" hands

40 time: 4.48
Vertical: 33"
Broad: 121"
3-Cone: 6.68
20 yard shuttle: 4.32
60 yard shuttle: 11.46

If I could pick 1 late round WR / potential UDFA to compete for the slot WR spot it would be him.
