Default 2008 Sleeper/Homer Player

It's a bit early...I know. But, I have a very good feeling that this guy is going to be an absolute stud next year.



Branden Ore...#28. Runningback, Virginia Tech. 5'11" 202 pounds. He runs between a 4.4 and a 4.5, and is considered somewhat of an all-around back. For a guy of his weight, he throws around a lot of force...and he still has good breakaway speed. Here are his stats thus far.



Not too shabby. Especially considering that he missed 2 games this past year. Can he catch the ball? Yes. Unfortunately, our passing game was somewhat lacking this year...but watch for that to improve as well.

Why is Ore a sleeper? The past 2 years, Virginia Tech's offensive line simply hasn't been that good. But, after a couple excellent recruiting classes, we have a solid OL for next year that includes Sergio Render(Freshman All-American) and a few other solid younger guys. What excites me the most about our O-line, though, is that they practice against one of the premier DL of the nation every day.

Last year Ore averaged 4.7 YPC, had 1137 rushing yards, and 16 rushing touchdowns. Here's what I expect next year.

5.2 YPC, 1550 rushing yards, 18 rushing touchdowns. It's going to be a good year for Branden Ore.

I've said it a few times already, I think David Ausberry is going to blow up this year. I think he'll have a better college career than Turner.

How about some people that actually haven't totally been heard of yet?

Sam Shields- WR for the U is going to burst onto the national spotlight. His game is a lot like Manningham, and he was probably Miami's best receivers last year as a freshman.

Dominique Douglas- WR for Iowa. Another fast freshman stud who was one of the best receivers Iowa had as a freshman. Should be one of the best in the big 10 next year.

Demarco Murray- RB Oklahoma... once again, some talk about him, but he's never started. Should get the bulk of the carries for OU this year.

Jeff Cumberland- TE Illinois. Played very well as a frosh. Measurables are quite freakish. IMO he's the illini's best player along with Davis. He'll shine this year.

Kurt Coleman- Ohio State Safety. Reminds me a lot of Donte Whitner. Undersized, but is extremely instinctual, and is the definition of a playmaker. He outplayed all OSU's safeties in the spring including Jamario Oneal, and a few upperclassmen. Him along with Anderson Russel should be a formidable combo.

Drew Kelson- Both Scout and Rivals had Kelson rated the #1 Safety in the Nation back in 2004. Got moved to OLB because Chizik wanted speed at LB, but never really did a whole lot there.

He will move back to Safey this season and hopefully he can be the player that earned him that #1 position ranking.

Malcom Jenkins... So good he can get to the quarterback and catch the throw before it leaves his hand...



lol idk what the **** cupito is doing...



clearly he isnt a sleeper anymore because so many people acknowledge the fact he was probably a first round corner this year...

but he is a homer player of mine...

As much as I hate this team I must say 6.7yards per carry as a Freshman is godly.



Although this one ups him:

Doubtful. Check out Aqib Talib sometime or Antoine Cason.

Some other players that will probably break out:
Jonathan Hefney (S Tennessee)
Terrance Taylor (DT Michigan)
Brandon Graham (DE Michigan)
Robert Rose (DE tOSU)
Sergio Kindle(LB Texas) (I hope where the **** did he go)
Brandon Flowers (DB Vatech)

TE Travis Beckum for the Wisconsin Badgers. He really emerged as the Badgers top receiving threat for John Stocco at the end of the year and he should continue to progress and be a star after converting from LB.

I say Spiller has a better shot at cracking 1,000 yards at Clemson ( traditional running team) then at Florida (a spread option). I think Clemson will better prepare him for the NFL also. If he wanted to win a NC and be close to his daughter, then year he should have chosen UF. But Clemson will do him fine because him splitting will still result in multiple 1,000 yard seasons.

Yeah but most fans are not overly impressed with Turner. I will Kyle Moore at DE. He's a freak of a player.

underhyped guys that im extremely high on and think will develope into househould names or all american type players

lets start off with my team

Marcus Ball OLB Florida State



would have been a five star recruit if not for injuries and grade problems. He was having a dominant year (as a BACKUP) as a freshman before getting injured for the year. He has shown flashes to be special, and every bit as good as Lawrence Timmons

Everett Griffen DE Florida State

reminds me of a younger Kam Wimbley. Will start at DE this year and was very productive as a freshman. Quick burst off the line and has the size of most of FSU's past rush ends


Caz Piurowski LT Florida State

Was recruited as a bit time TE prospect. During recruiting season he told coaches he planed to move to OT. He started at TE as a true Freshman last season (along with Brandon Warrenn) and was very quick for a big tall TE and blocked very well. Now with the coaching a Trickett (one of the best OL coaches in the country) I think he will develope into an all Star OT. He is already 6'7 285 and now just has to get stronger and learn the posistion. By the end of 2008 he could be one of CFballs premiere up and coming Olineman. Is only a true Sophomore but is taking a page out of Tony Boseli, Robert Garrery, Eric Winston, Joe Thomas, and Joe Staleys playbook by starting off as a TE and moving to tackle.

Jamie Robinson CB Florida State

was a top notch recruit and has the ideal size and speed combination you look for. Antonio Cromartie called him "the next" in a long line of standout Seminole defensive backs. Is 6'2 and all he needs to do is continue to become a better cover corner.

now on to other players across the nation


Cornelluis Ingram TE Florida

almost transfered because of his lack of chances to play at QB but slowly he became s very solid TE this past year. By the end of the year he was on of Florida's main targets. I can only see him getting better and should be one of cfballs best pass receiving TE's. Outstanding size and speed.


Anthony Schriotto S Penn State

Big time hitter and playmaker that should help Penn State form one of the better secondaries in the big 10. He was one of the most impressive platers I saw in all of football by the end of the year and it woulld shock me if he doesnt have an All American type year. Was only a sophomore last season, so he can only improve. I think he will eventually be a 1st or 2nd round draft pick


Mike Jenkings CB South Florida

VERY underated and truly one of the best CB's in the country. Has fantastic size and good speed and reminds me alot of Derelle Revis from Pitt. Plays the run very well and just has to become more smooth in his backpedal.

Dexter MCCluster WR Ole Miss

does not have the size or straight ahead burning deep speed you like in a smallish receiver, but he is a playmaker. Was one of Ole Miss's few bright spots as a true freshman. He should eventually turn into a Steve Smith type receiver.


I'll do a few more later on
