    Bust & Sleeper

    Since we are a few days from the draft, name your biggest bust and hidden Gem in this year's class. You don't have to say why, but explaining would be nice. I'll go first:

    Bust: Johnny Manziel. For his position, he is expected to be a franchise guy. Defenses are a lot better in the NFL than the SEC. LSU's D players do better in the NFL than Alabama guys. Les Miles frustrated Johnny more. He's a polarizing player with awesome magic moments, but it won't be a consistent thing in the NFL.

    Sleeper: Seantrel Henderson. This guy had injury issues and personal issues at UM and USC. He has a NFL body as well. He can be a good/productive offensive line guy in the right system. I like his potential a lot and he was highly touted recruit back in his HS days.

    Bust:

    -I could see Greg Robinson busting at LT (I think he'll be a solid RT, but I feel he's overhyped as an LT)
    -Manziel due to size
    - OBJ. I feel like OBJ is a late-first to late-second prospect who's being touted as a top 20 pick now. He's got potential, but his production is so misleading and he wasn't even the best WR on his team. It also seems like every time I see a report on him they make him sound like he's 6'5". So overrated, but plenty of potential.

    I haven't really kept up enough with the depth in this draft to discuss legit sleepers, but there's a lot of guys who I feel will be taken at the end of round 1, early round 2 who I think might have better careers than some of the guys taken ahead of them.

    -WR Brandin Cooks
    -CB Kyle Fuller
    -WR Cody Latimer (unless he's drafted round 1, in which case that's an unfair situation for him to be in)
    -OT Kouandjio has his issues, but if he can get healthy I think he'll be a steal in round 2 or 3.


    CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

    Bust: kony ealy don't like him at all
    Same with Anthony Barr

    This means in my definition of bust. They aren't worth where they're drafted. They could make solid pros but not live up to the hype. Everyone has a different definition of bust

    Sleeper: two mentioned above. Freeman and Henderson
    Henderson if he focuses he's incredible potential
    I also like Walt aikens a lot
    Also big martavis Bryant fan.

    Smallwood is so freaking stiff. IDK


    Johnny ESPN

    and then Silas Redd. I'm going to assume he's healing as planned.

    Agree. If Detroit could find a way to move back a few spots and draft him, I'd be very happy. We need some attitude on O.

    OBJ is basically the same player as Tate.
