I'm working on my annual B2B Directional State article but, just had to list some FBS Power 5 conference guys who are mystifyingly underrated.

1. Chris Carson, RB, Oklahoma State-- Looks and tests like a stud NFL RB. Zero buzz. Reminds me of another ignored RB, Doug Martin, who went on to a decent career.

2. Seth Russell, QB, Baylor-- Tape is great, injuries are fully healed. So much better than Davis Webb on tape. Tougher, better down the field placement.

3. Johnathan Ford, S, Auburn-- tough, loves football. Good STs.

4. Joshua Holsey, CB, Auburn-- undersized but overtalented. Great cover skills.

5. Adrian Colbert, CB, Miami-- Penalized for transfer and injury (broke his arm laying a big hit). Ran 4.3 whatever at 6' >200lbs. Terrific at playing the ball in the air.

6. Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado-- gets his hands on every football. Just crazy anticipation and ball skills. Only an adequate tackler, so pushed down despite Ed Reed type skills.

7. Brian Allen, CB/S, Utah-- Big, fast, strong, long arms, ball skills, raw-- learning on the job. I heard he can't tackle-- guessing that critic never watched the guy play and lay the wood.

8. Pita Taumeopenu, EDGE, Utah-- Best speed rusher in the draft. Just bring him in on passing downs and let him play like the energizer bunny on cocaine.

You opened my eyes to Seth Russell......i think id be happy with him 4th or later

I think so much of a draftees success is based on what team they go to

I think Bug Howard and Micheal Roberts could be real weapons......i wont be surprised if they get caught in a numbers cut and wind up too far behind to make an impact

When I watch a football it's usually pretty easy to spot the guy having the biggest impact on the game on his side of the ball..
In every Florida St. game I've seen the past two seasons the guying making the biggest impact has been Demarcus Walker (Tavarus McFadden too). #98 CBS??? Top 40 for me.

AND NFL game values interior pass rush even more. Walker is going to be worth a top 50 pick even if he just plays interior rusher in nickel.

To me this just means some serious steals will be available in this draft and hopefully Steelers draft a couple of them. SBI.
