With the first crop of players reporting to Indianapolis tomorrow to begin the NFL combine, it's worth thinking about a few players that are slightly off the radar and could be surprise players in their rookie campaigns.
Think about a guy like DE Jabaal Sheard now with the Cleveland Browns. Sheard watched his stock fall coming out of Pitt and went on to have a tremendous rookie season, and complimented the Browns' first-round pick, DT Phil Taylor nicely.
While Coples, Kalil and Griffin III are locks for top-10 selections, the 2012 draft has additional players that could make immediate impacts. It happens every year, and this draft will be no different.
The players on this list will be on draft boards across the league but will probably be considered after the first day. Teams that are lucky enough to snatch these "value picks" could be position for a strong overall draft.
