Default WR Sleeper

What about this guy?

WR Eron Riley, Duke (6-3, 206)
Riley hasnít received much attention as an NFL prospect coming from Duke, where the football team was 6-41 during his four years on campus. Despite that, he put up some impressive stats the past three years, catching 133 balls for 2,166 yards and 20 touchdowns. But it wasnít until the Duke pro day that Riley really started to create some noise. He blistered his 40 in a time of 4.29 seconds and recorded a 40-inch vertical and an 11-foot, 2-inch broad jump. Dukeís struggling pass offense may have masked some of Rileyís big-play capability, but considering he averaged over 20 yards a reception as a sophomore and junior, he definitely has an ability to create big plays at the next level. Heís a solid route runner underneath and does a nice job sinking his hips and exploding into slants post routes. However, he struggles changing directions and has a tendency to get too high and lose his balance when asked to break off routes at 90 degrees. Still, no one can criticize the kidís athletic skill set and vast improvement last year under new head coach David Cutcliffe. Riley is a smart receiver who understands coverages and does a nice job using his big frame to gain initial separation. You canít teach his combination of size and speed, and I expect a team to take a shot on him during the back end of the draft in the hope of turning him into a big-play threat.

That's a super-sleeper right there. Seems really talented but went to a garbage football school.

Who knows. But I wouldn't complain if we threw a Comp 5 at him.

Dook grads might resemble that remark. And the fact that he was able to do that at a non football power makes me think he's all that. Where did Jerry Rice go? East Mississippi Valley something?

Maybe we jump sooner. The Niners took Ol Jer in the 1st.
