Julius "Trey" Watts III out of Tulsa is my sleeper pick at RB for the 2014 NFL Draft. This guy is getting very little love but will be trending upwards come draft time, or at least he should be.

For the 2013 season, he's currently sitting at 1,026 yards on 206 carries (4.9 AVG) and 8 TDs to go with 372 receiving yards and 1 TD.

Watts (5'10'', 210 lbs) is a compact, do-it-all back with great vision, good turnover, and impressive balance. He's not a burner and he won't truck anyone over, but this guy will find the hole if it's there and he's an efficient runner that gets what he can without dancing or coming up with negative plays. He doesn't go down on first contact and can bounce off or run through some glancing blows. He's also a quick receiver with good hands and has the awareness to pick up the blitz.

He's a similar player to Bishop Sankey, IMO, and there really isn't too much separating them in terms of talent. Sankey is probably the tougher runner but Watts is a more versatile weapon.

It wouldn't surprise me at all to see him become an effective player in the NFL in a platoon role or even carry the load at times.

Will probably go in the 5th and put up similar production to a 2nd round back. Good steal in the later rounds for whoever takes a shot. "Alfred Morris"/ "Andre Ellington" type potential with ability regarding position drafted

Reminds me more of Jordan Todman.

I was just thinking of a guy who is also currently draft eligible and more well known. Besides, I can't match you in how in-depth and off the beaten path you go for comparisons Wink

Comparison aside, do you like Watts? I know you study RBs very closely.

He was a walk on to Tulsa. Been pretty consistent this year. Good at picking up blitzes and catching passes out of the backfield.

If I were to compare him to someone else in this draft, I'd say he has a little bit of Storm Johnson and Roderick McDowell.

I like him, but don't think he'll go high in the draft.
