But here's the catch, I'm not talking about well known guys like CJ Spiller's, McFadden's, DeSean Jackson's, guys that everyone knows.

Jarrett Dillard. The reciever from Rice. He is not very well known.

i think someone that is overlooked alot is Derrick Williams WR from Penn State, hes a real game breaker as a Reciever and as a return man.

He did nothing last year to break a game. If he plays like last year, no way is he a gamebreaking receiver.

good job reading to everyone who said Percy Harvin and DeSean Jackson...

I don't really know any sleeper, I only know about the Hawks...and from what I've heard Cedric Everson is a real burner and if given the chance to return at all this year might surprise some people...the other is Anthony Bowman, he looks to be in prime position to be our returner and is also just built for speed

For Michigan State it's probably TJ williams he's a sophomore WR who really stepepd up last year, he'll be brian Hoyer's number 1 target this year and really make a name for himself.

Cedric Everson is definitely a fast guy, I remember hearing about him here in Atlanta. He committed to Ga Tech but did not fulfill the entry requirements.

Real fast guy.

Graig Cooper is going to be the big playmaker Miami has been missing. Everyone says the same thing about him, Devin Hester.
