The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 6 Offensive Sleepers to Watch for in the 2018 NFL Draft

6 Offensive Sleepers to Watch for in the 2018 NFL Draft

Top Offensive Sleepers in the NFL Draft!
Publish Date: 04/11/2018
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

There are always a couple of prospects who slip through the cracks.  Here are a few offensive players who you may not have heard of yet, but who could make a name for themselves in the NFL.

 

Jaleel Scott – WR – New Mexico State

At 6’5” 218 and running a 4.56 40, Jaleel Scott has the combination of size and speed that could make him a big-time player in the NFL. Scott has enough speed to press a  defense vertically, and with his height, he causes major matchup problems. He is an excellent red zone threat and will win every jump ball in the back of the end zone. He has incredible ball skills and makes some catches that are simply absurd. Scott could be a start in the NFL.

Janerion Grant – WR/KR/PR – Rutgers

Janerion Grant played wide receiver for Rutgers, but he made his biggest contribution as a specialist.  Grant is a dynamic returner who is always a threat to take it to the house. He is not a dancer like many return specialists can be. He is more like water, he finds the fastest route downfield. Grant has not stayed healthy for a complete season since 2015 which is concerning, but an NFL team could benefit from using him in a return specialist role and figuring out a way to get him a few touches here and there on offense.

Ito Smith – RB – Southern Miss

At 5’9” 195 Ito Smith is one of the smallest players in the draft, but he could make a big impact at the NFL level. Smith was very productive as both a rusher and receiver in college which is extremely valuable in today’s NFL. He has excellent vision and is quick in and out of his cuts. He runs very low which gives him great balance and the ability to juke defenders effectively. He would be an excellent compliment to a bigger back, but at his size, probably wouldn’t be able to take a full NFL workload. He could get 10 carries and 5 receptions in a game and still have a big impact.

Skyler Phillips – OG – Idaho State

Skyler Phillips is an interesting guard prospect who is not getting as much attention as he deserves. He shares some similarities with UTEP guard Will Hernandez but will be available at a much better value. At 6-3 318, Phillips is a big strong guy who gets great movement up front. He is extremely aggressive which is why he wins, but it can also be why he loses.  He can sometimes get too aggressive putting his body in a bad position. Phillips has the requisite strength, build, and demeanor to develop into a quality starter at guard.

Logan Woodside – Quarterback – Toledo

A lot of attention has been paid to the top six or seven quarterbacks in the draft, and rightfully so.  Logan Woodside is not one of those guys. Woodside is an extremely efficient quarterback who could develop into a solid number two in the NFL. He does not have a huge arm or anything specifically dynamic about his game. He is simply a solid player with great accuracy and above average athleticism, Woodside does not have the upside of those other guys, but he has all the makings of someone who could have a long career as a backup and can do just enough to win some games when he is called upon.

 

Cam Serigne – TE – Wake Forest

Cam Serigne has gotten lost in the shuffle of an interesting tight end class. At 6’3” Serigne does not stand out. He is, however, a very interesting player on the field. He is best off the line and is effective as both a blocker and a pass catcher. He runs great routes and has a knack for finding holes in zones. He would fit well into a role that played him off the ball and allowed him to find openings in the passing game underneath. He is not dynamic, stretch the field receiving tight end, but could be reliable, move the chains type of pass catcher.
