Who is the greatest sleeper in NFL Draft history?
The middle and late rounds of the NFL draft have found Tom Brady (sixth round), Russell Wilson (third), Terrell Davis (sixth), Bart Starr (17th), and Johnny Unitas (ninth), among others. Who do you think was the biggest bargain in NFL Draft history?
I think that would have been Joe Montana. (Third round 82nd overall pick)
James Harrison is one that comes to mind. All the draft gurus were asleep on that one since he wasn't even drafted. Yeah, he came out of Kent St., but so did Jack Lambert. Harrison was NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2008 and had the longest play in Super Bowl history in 2009 when he picked Kurt Warner and took it 100 yards to paydirt.
I don't know how anybody can't say Tom Brady. Three rings and an ever increasing mountain of stats and they scoop him up as a potential third string quarterback in the SIXTH round of the 2000 draft. That is the definition of draft steal. No other player who at such an important positions has had that much success. He is the best sleeper of all time.
Although he was considered the best inside linebacker coming out that year, I don't think most teams envisioned a Hall of Famer. He went lower in the first round than he should have, 26th overall. Not sure why. Maybe size. Background check etc. He's not an extreme case like Tom Brady, but he turned out to be one of the greatest linebackers in NFL history. So if you can get a HoFer with the 26th overall, you got a steal.

I have to say I've enjoyed watching Johnny almost as much as Tebow. I'd love to see him do one more year of college, but it sounds like he'll come out. If he does, is he a first round pick?
