Don Banks wrote about him in his "Wes Welker Watch List," regarding late-round sleepers.

• Jonte Green, CB, New Mexico State -- There will always be a place in the NFL for players with blinding speed, and if Al Davis were still alive and picking the players in Oakland, I'd put my money on Green winding up a Raider. Green ran 4.41 at the New Mexico State pro day, and his measurables of 5-11, 191 pounds helped make sure the NFL scouts knew his name as well.

Green's ball skills need work, but he improved his coverage skills playing for New Mexico State head coach DeWayne Walker, a former NFL defensive backs coach. Playing in the inaugural AstroTurf NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in January, Green was named the National Team's defensive MVP, and his 14 passes defensed led the Aggies last season and ranked second in the WAC. He's seen as a likely third-day pick, or priority collegiate free agent.

I know it's only a 6th rounder and we didn't trade up to get him, but he is the lowest rated player on NFL.com who was actually drafted. Not good.

Don't pay attention to the ratings on NFL.com. They are pretty out of whack on some players.....

I still have to think they would have been able to get him in the 7th or as an UDFA.

6th round, 7th round......is it really that MUCH of a difference?

Also, why let the kid go undrafted if you think there's something there to work with? Remember, a UDFA gets to sign where ever they want. No guarantee the Lions get that kid if he goes undrafted.....

Personally, I think the Lions should have either drafted Antonio Allen or James Brown at that spot. We could have used a pure safety or a guard, rather than a third cornerback. But whatever....Mayhew and co. did a pretty good job.

I agree. However, I had to check NFL.com, because the draft magazines I had had NOTHING on thuis guy. I had no idea who he was...

He's got speed. Maybe he'll be a dimond in the rough. I hope so. I guess a 6th round pick isn't a huge gamble either way...
