Packers' Potential Two Late Sleeper Picks

Dean SomervilleCorrespondent IApril 23, 2009

Not many NFL fans think about talent coming from Canadian Universities.  Here are two that I would love to see Ted Thompson and the Packer team take a run at.

Vaughn Martin is a 6'3", 330+ pound defensive lineman with sub-five second 40 speed, strength numbers to match B.J. Raji, and the highest Wonderlic score in this year's draft class.  While he has not had the same level of coaching or competition and experience, this pure talent should not slip by the third round, and is a certain fit for the Packers needs and has a cold weather performance record.  Ted—pick No. 83 should be Martin.

Jamaal Lee is a big and hugely fast RB at 6' tall and 225 pounds with 4.34 speed in the 40-meter dash.  Like Martin, Lee is a bit short on coaching and experience, but the kind of raw talent and speed that some teams will learn to fear.  Ted—pick No. 109 should be Lee.
