He has to be obscure enough to be barely rated, most likely not a combine invite, at best projected 6-7, but even better 7-UDFA (or even better than that, nobody on ESPN or NFLN ever even heard of the guy and they have to google him on national TV). The last two were Tavon and Duron, so in keeping with that, I've narrowed it to two athletic but low rated tweeners (S/CB) whose first names end in "on."
Kamaron Riley, Mid-American Nazarene, 6'1, 194, pretty good numbers (what do I know?) at the Kansas State pro day: 40 in 4.53, 21 reps, 36" vertical, 10'3" broad jump, 7.04 in the all important 3-cone drill. Can't find much else about him online, so he's probably the guy. But if not...
Marqueston Huff, Wyoming, 5'11, 196, this guy actually did go to the combine which is a strike against him because someone has actually heard of him, 40 in 4.46, 15 reps, 35.5" vertical, 9'10" broad jump, 7.26 3-cone. Projected 6th rounder by CBS.
Here's a quote from the Senior Bowl practices (another strike against him...): "Wyoming defensive back Marqueston Huff blanketed receivers, showcasing the light feet, fluid hips and straight-line speed to turn with the North's variety of receivers, ranging in size from former Cowboys' teammate Robert Herron (5-foot-9, 193 pounds) to Saginaw Valley State's chiseled 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jeff Janis. Huff's athleticism is sure to intrigue scouts looking for cover corners and he's previously shown the toughness to handle NFL physicality due to his time at safety at Wyoming. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com"
It will have to be Riley, Huff is a virtual celebrity.
