Draft Prep: Pass rushing sleepers


The second version of the Harris 100 has been posted for a few weeks at But, 100 players only gets you into the top of the fourth round. Last week, I examined three sleepers at each offensive position so this week, I'll look at the defensive sleepers at each defensive position.




Victor Ochi, Stony Brook (6-2, 255)
Ochi is the Energizer Bunny that never stops. He's a relentless pass rusher off the edge with a wing span that'll impress everyone. He's still raw at the position, so although there's work to be done, he's athletic enough to make that progress.

Ian Seau, Nevada (6-2, 255)
Seau is the nephew of the late great Junior Seau and he plays with his uncle's spirit.

Eric Striker, Oklahoma (5-11, 227)
Striker was as fun to watch as any player in this draft class. As mentioned above, he doesn't really fit into a conventional position, but he can rush the edge with the best of them in this class. Not to mention, he's one of the best interviews ever. You'll love him.
