Seth and Justin give you some true sleepers for the 2017 NFL Draft.

The lines of what a “sleeper” in the NFL Draft is has become blurred. So much so that we are touting sleepers by putting them in the top five of positional rankings.

Last we checked, a sleeper is someone who no one is talking about, not someone who is being touted as one of the five best prospects at their position in the NFL Draft.

Thankfully, Seth and I have the time to set the record straight, and give you some real sleepers to keep an eye on, guys who will be picked on, at earliest, day three of the 2017 NFL Draft.

What brought this subject up was actually the prospect rankings of a couple big draft writers, who ranked Carlos Henderson as the third best wide receiver prospect and another who ranked Chad Hansen fourth.

This isn’t to call out their rankings, but instead to really look at, are these guys sleepers then? And if so... How?

Listen in, and get to know some of the prospects you may not have heard about so far, here is a list of guys we mention on the show:

QB - Alek Torgersen

RB - Tiquan Mizzell

WR - DeAngelo Yancey

DE - Darius English

DL - Grover Stewart

LB - Steven Taylor and Tyus Bowser

CB - Brandon Wilson

S - Randall Goforth
