Frank Summers: NFL Draft Sleeper Number Four

Signature SportsCorrespondent IApril 19, 2009

College: UNLV
Position: RB/FB
Physical Stats: 5'10, 230
Combine/Pro Day Stats: 4.63 40 time, 30 reps.
Projected Stock: 7th

Strengths:
- Very strong
- Built like a rock
- Loves to hit and deliver hits
- Great production in college despite not much help surrounding him
- Decent speed for a guy his size

Weaknesses:
- No break away speed
- Tweener between RB and FB
- Went to smaller school
- Didn't play great competition
- Not consistent

Teams Interested:
Steelers have be VERY interested. They sent two scouts and even the RB coach all the way to UNLV just to give him personal workouts. They came back extremely impressed with him and his workouts. There have been many reports saying the Steelers will take him as a short yardage back in the sixth round.

Other Comments:
Summers was a beast in the MWC. He was voted as the toughest player to bring down in the conference and for good reason. This guy will be a monster goal-line back. He lead UNLV in rushing and receiving last season. He's also the only player in UNLV history to gain 1,000 yards from scrimmage in back to back seasons.
