My new favorite sleeper

  • I have pushed AJ Klein on here, love that guy late in the draft.

    But I have a new crush.

    Jayson Dimanche. Southern Illinois Salukis. 6'1.25" 235. No other stats for him. Great athlete on video though.

    He made his own workout video, and the dude is a striaght up baller on the field as a 34 OLB or 4-3 WLB.

  • He fights off blocks pretty well, and appears to have a decent set of wheels.

    The fighting off blocks was my 2nd favorite part. The other was his option killer plays. He attacked the option like few I have ever seen.

  • Dang!!!!!!!!!!! That guy can play. Good hands, and a clear nose for the ball...seemed like he knew where the play was going before it happened. Nice find.

  • You'd expect that with the name Dimanche he'll be playing his best football in the pros.

  • Great find! I'll have to add him to my Seahawks draft wish list. Teams that run a 3-4 defense may value him more than the Seahawks, but I would be more than happy taking a chance on him in the 4th or 5th round.
    Here is his profile page for his team's web site, http://www.siusalukis.com/sports/m-foot ... 35865.html

  • Wow, check out the play he made at 5:30. Quickly diagnosed a screen pass, flew past a would-be lead blocker and flat out laid the wood down on the tailback.

    :shock:

  • Interesting that this guy gets brought up. I was just looking at video of him over the weekend after perusing draftcountdown.com and seeing this guy rated above some other names I'm more familiar with. The Hawks have drafted from So. Illinois before... Terry Taylor in round 1 of the 1984 draft.

    I like the said LB prospect and agree with the OP. No highjack of this thread intended... but, perhaps in the spirit of talking about sleeper LB prospects, anyone know anything about Ty Powell? Very little info or footage on him, but he's rated fairly high. Apparently he's spent time as a DB, DL and LB. He's listed as an OLB. He was a combine participant.
