NFP Sleeper Prospects<Dominique Edison, Wide Receiver, Stephen F. Austin

Overview


Edison has been a productive wideout since setting foot on the Stephen F. Austin campus. He averaged just over 500 receiving yards per year during his first three seasons. But as a senior, Edison reeled in 67 catches for 1,016 yards and a staggering 18 touchdowns.

<Rundown<Lee Robinson, Outside Linebacker, Alcorn State

Overview<

A powerfully built linebacker with good upper body strength, Robinson knows how to create collisions on contact. He loves to attack downhill, does a nice job closing quickly on the ball and makes plays on all areas of the field. Robinson did a much better job in space than scouts anticipated at the Texas vs. the Nation Bowl. He still is a bit stiff when asked to redirect but does a nice job flipping his hips and staying with receivers out of the backfield. He also lined up as a down defensive end at times. Possesses the first-step quickness and natural leverage to bull rush linemen and get after the quarterback.

Rundown

Robinson possesses an intriguing blend of upper body strength, size and speed, and could be looked at as a strongside linebacker in a 4-3 or a rush linebacker in a 3-4. He closes on the ball quickly and has the ability to rush the passer. He has never received the kind of attention he deserves and should start to create some buzz for himself at the NFL Combine. If he runs as well as many expect (4.65) at around 250 pounds, the hype machine will definitely start picking up and could move him into the mid-round portions of the draft.


Everette Pedescleaux, Defensive End, Northern Iowa

All three sleepers could have value as a R6-7 pick, but I'd actually be tempted to bring in Pedescleaux earlier, say R4, let him learn a year behind Smith and Diesel, and then put him in at RDE.

I dunno, but if you like the guy don't call yourself a Pede-phile.
