    Jay Higgins - holy crap...watch this dude's tape. He's 225 now...I could see him playing DE at 255 and wreaking absolute havoc in the offensive backfield. Maybe he stays at LB...but he's got toughness and speed. A couple of years with Doyle...and a fast twitch guy on the edge.

    Deonte Craig - wow...just wow. He's a beast and he's got speed.

    RBs - Williams and Williams - these guys are good. This is going to shore up the RB position for 3-4 years.

    I'm really high on this class. Jones, Craig, Lachey, Hogan, Yelverton, Black, Bracy, L Williams, and Higgins excite me the most.

    Higgens definitely looks like a solid get.

    As for a sleeper, I posted in another thread that I'm high on Yahya Black at DE. I also mentioned Hurkett as an under-the-radar guy. He'll need to develop, but for a guy his size his movement skills are intriguing.

    It will be interesting to see what they do with Jones and Lachey. I could see Jones ending up on the OL, and Lachey may have to remain a large wideout. He has almost no blocking experience, and it's hard to say if he would be patient enough to devote to that and stay at TE (a la Hockenson, Fant, Kittle).

    Keeping it real, I'm just so-so on the two RBs. If there is one lesson we should have learned from Goodson and Wadley, is that you have to prioritize explosiveness at that position. What I see on tape with the two Williams' are guys with good but not great explosiveness, much like Young, Geil, Daniels, etc. Not bad players at all and they could end up surprising, but we can and should recruit better there. For whatever reason, we've struggled recruiting at that position for the last 6-7 years.
