Under the Radar: Offensive Prospects for 2012 NFL Draft
Here are some guys to watch for the 2012 NFL Draft that right now are sleepers.
QB Dominique Davis, East Carolina – Davis started his career at Boston College and played some as a red-shirt freshman there even starting the 2008 ACC Championship Game against Virginia Tech where he threw for 263 yards. Last season Davis threw for 3,967 yards and 37 touchdowns, he completed 64 percent of his passes and rushed for 141 yards and 9 touchdowns.
RB Michael Shaw, Michigan - With Michigan going back to a pro style offensive look for Shaw to have the best season of his career and to help his draft stock. He is a good size back at around 6 feet 200 pounds has good speed and has the ability to catch the football out of the back field.
WR Chris Summers, Liberty - Summers last season caught 76 passes for 1,081 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. He is around 6-3 200 pounds, has the ability to jump and go get the football when it is in the air. Summers should have another big season this upcoming year.
TE Josh Chichester, Louisville - Chichester came to Louisville as a wide receiver but has added weight and become a tight end. He still needs to work on his blocking but has great size at close to 6-8, 240 pounds. Last season he caught 22 passes for 317 yards and 5 touchdowns despite playing behind senior tight end Cameron Graham. Look for a bigger season this year out of Chichester.
