In this week’s episode of the Devy Hour, Brad and Paul talk about their Devy Sleepers for the upcoming year. In Devy, a sleeper could mean a number of things, in our case we are referring to a player that either hasn’t gotten a shot to be a #1 on their team (most likely because they had a talented player in front of them, and they had to wait their turn). In some cases, it’s also a player that’s not a household name but we believe will be after the 2020 season. We believe these are players you can put at the back end of your Devy rosters and could get you some nice value as they move into the NFL in the near future!
Brad’s Devy Sleepers:
Charleston Rambo – WR Oklahoma
We’ve seen flashes from Rambo in the past but with CeeDee Lamb now in the league, Rambo should be the clear cut #1 in 2020. I need to see him continue to develop though and explain some of the things I want to see from him in podcast/video.
Lyn-J Dixon – RB Clemson
Dixon’s been a good soldier, being in a timeshare with Travis Etienne can’t be easy but Dixon’s done what’s been asked of him. He’s a big-play threat waiting to happen, and he has good size/speed that will entice teams at the next level.
Nico Collins – WR Michigan
The best wideout in Ann Arbor in 2019 was Collins, and now with Tarik Black at Texas and DPJ in Cleveland, Collins will be the unquestioned #1 WR in this offense, the bigger question is will they have suitable quarterback play to maximize his talents?
Kyle Trask – QB Florida
This is the case of a guy that’s never gotten a chance to shine, until 2019. Once he was given the opportunity, you saw a fire and leadership that lead the team to a really nice come from behind win against Kentucky. I know that he’s quickly becoming a known player but I think he has the intangibles that have NFL teams take a look at him after 2020.
Paul’s Devy Sleepers:
Graham Mertz – QB Wisconsin
Can this talented youngster shine in 2020?
Jatarvious Whitlow – RB ???
The former Auburn Tiger has yet to find a home but that isn’t stopping Paul from liking the players on field tape!
Jhamon Ausbon – WR Texas A&M
Injuries hurt Ausbon so far in his career, can 2020 be the bounce back to put Ausbon into the talk of early-round WR in the 2021 NFL Draft?
Don Chaney – RB Miami
Miami is quickly becoming the Baltimore Ravens, having multiple studs at running backs, and focus on a strong running game to set up the pass.
Warren Jackson – WR Colorado State
A red zone threat that could develop into an unstoppable force at the next level?
Damonte Coxie – WR Memphis
Another bigger wide receiver that Paul likes, needs to be able to beat press-man coverage but has some upside that can’t be argued!
