'Prospecting:' Looking for 'sleepers'

We have spent our weekly 'prospecting' posts looking at guys who the Giants might take in rounds 1 or 2 of the upcoming NFL Draft. Let's take a different tack today, and look at some possible late-round selections or 'sleepers,' if you will.

I don't pay much attention to which players visit which NFL teams as the draft approaches. It's usually pretty meaningless. Pro Football Talk reports that a couple of those 'sleeper-type' prospects are scheduled to visit the Giants soon, though, so let's talk about them. One is wide receiver Johnny Knox. The other is cornerback Vince Anderson.

Here is some information about Knox.

Johnny Knox, WR, Abilene Christian

Knox is a small guy, just 5-foot111/2, 185 pounds, but has run a 4.34 40-yard dash.

Draft Countdown had this to say.

Elusive...Nice vision and instincts...Solid route runner...Vertical threat who can really separate...Really caught peoples attention with his performance at the Scouting Combine...Intriguing speed and production...Profiles as a slot receiver at the next level and can also contribute on special teams.

-- Draft Tek also has a look at a few other players who could be considered 'sleepers.'
