Small School Sleepers in NFL Draft
Tony Pauline, Special to SI.com, TFYDraft.com

The draft is less than two weeks away and football conversations center around the top prospects from the nation's biggest college football programs. Yet history has shown not all productive players in the draft come from major IA schools.

Lane College's Jacoby Jones, with the Houston Texans, and Illinois State's Laurent Robinson, with the Atlanta Falcons, are just two small-school players who made impacts last year. So who are the top small-school sleepers in this year's draft? Here are a dozen names to remember.

Thanks for the find. Peyton loves small school guys and I appreciate the link. I will be surprised if one of these guys do not end up in black and gold.

Brandon Kieth is a MONSTER OT

6'5 343 runs a 4.99 MONSTER.

Brain Johnston and Andy Studebaker could also be major sleepers

Thaddeus Coleman, T, Mississippi Valley State: Coleman could well be the best-kept secret at the offensive tackle position. He stands a shade under 6-8 yet has the athleticism and footwork necessary to protect the blind side. Coleman is fresh off meeting with the Minnesota Vikings and has a host of other squads who want to speak with him.

Brandon Keith is also a bit of a character and incarceration risk. He could (worst case) be convicted of "rioting, disorderly conduct and interference with official acts" for an incident that he and two of his former team mates were involved in about a month ago. This is an aggravated misdemeanor which carries the potential of a 2 year sentence. The risk here is significant, but has a very high upside if he gets past this and is selected by the right team.
