Andrew Jackson ILB WKU 6 1 260....downhill thumper who doesnt miss tackles, great instincts, decent in pass coverage..,played well when team played top flite opponents...labled as one of countries hardest hitters..be worth a 5th or 6th rd shot

Keith McGill CB Utah 6 3 1/2 215 4.35...Juco all american played safety first year the moved back to CB which is his natural position...reminds many of Sean Smith who plays for dolphins...another good late rd guy>fantasic size to speed ratio for the big NFC north receivers

Brandon Coleman WR 6 6 220 4.55 Huge redzone target 10 tds this year..not a burner but goes up after ball...is raw but worth a late rd flier

Anyone else have these guys on their radar..or anymore info on these guys

Coleman is a beast, but I have a feeling he will return to school to try and improve his draft stock.

yeah you could be right...but i think his speed is a question mark...and 10 tds last might be hard to improve on...i have seen as high as 4.65 for his 40 ..who knows just have to wait and see.. if he does come out where do you see him being drafted....Am i DELUSIONAL lol!! to think he might be there in the 5th or 6th rd

Third to Fifth round. Someone will take a chance on him being a Marques Colston type WR/TE tweener.

It does all depend on how fast he runs.

Jackson yes, but I'm not super familiar with McGill. If he truly runs in the 4.3's and has some semblance of physicality to go with that size I'm surprised there isn't a ton of talk about him.

Looks like McGill redshirted this year and will be back in Utah next year.

Did not know that..i was looking at prospects on nfl draft focus and saw his name and stats ..then did a litle research but did not see his injury and redshirt....probaly why there was no buzz about him like you said.

a guy with those measurables from a decent school should create some hype..now i know why

Oh I do love me the "sleeper"/late round draft conversations!

I haven't done a ton of research yet on late round guys but one that I am familiar with being an NDSU student is:

Marcus Williams-CB-NDSU
Not sure if he will declare as he is a RSJr but hes arguably the best cover CB in the FCS and has been a key cog on a dominant NDSU defense the last 2 seasons. Also could provide value as a PR guy. Size and minor knee issues could push him down but he could be really good slot CB type.

Draft projection: 6-7
If he declares, he will probably measure about 5'10 185 which is relatively small coupled with the face that he plays FCS will push him down boards. I think he could be a gem though in the late rounds and in a worst case scenario could give us what Sherels gives in the PR game

Jackson and Coleman aren't underrated, they just aren't expected to come out this year. Both will be 1st round picks when they do. McGill is a nice prospect but he received a medical redshirt and will be back at Utah next year.

His speed is what makes him an elite prospect. He ran a 4.48 coming out of high school. He has only gotten faster and should run between a 4.43 and 4.45 come next year.

Everywhere I've seen shows him in the mid 4.5's?
