Every year, the word "sleeper" is thrown around left and right. Every person talks about them, and every owner has a list full of them on draft day. But what exactly constitutes a "sleeper?"

To me, a sleeper is a player who is being overlooked and undervalued. He's a player who is going to exceed what you expect out of him based on his average draft position.

I look at some sleeper lists, and I cannot help to laugh. For example, Yahoo! lists Eric Hosmer as a sleeper. I'm not buying that. He had a rough sophomore season, but nobody is forgetting about him. He is being drafted around an average of about 90th overall, which is a great spot for him.

In this article, I will build a sleeper list for each position, but I will base my picks on their current average draft position. I will point out players who should outperform their expectations.
