All-Pro Scouting's NFL Draft Report
Hidden Gems

Year after year, NFL scouting departments search the country looking at hundreds of college prospects in preperation for the NFL Draft. The teams with the best scouts usually are the ones who can find the "hidden gems." Denver is notorious for finding late round talent. Terrell Davis, Olandis Gary, and Mike Anderson, each who've been 1,000 yard rushers, were all drafted in the 6th round. Most of the talent in the NFL comes from the second day of the draft. Below is a list of prospects by position who'll make their name known on day 2 and beyond. Some will go undrafted, but I'm sure that some will become viable NFL players.
