Hidden gems

Even though all you hear about these days are Calvin Johnsons, JaMarcus Russells and Adrian Petersons of the world, NFL teams are also focusing on lesser-knowns players. Here are 10 prospects who are generating a lot of buzz as the draft nears:





Usama Young/CB/Kent State: An all-Conference pick at Kent State last season, Young was snubbed by the major postseason games and did not receive an invite to the combine. Yet almost two dozen teams showed up at his pro day to watch the 196-pound Young run 4.4 seconds in the 40. Since then Young has visited 11 franchises and will work out for four other teams next week. Given a free-agent grade at the start of the year, Young could slide into the draft's first day.



• David Jones/CB/Wingate: Playing only two seasons of high school football, Jones has recently attracted a lot of attention from the NFL. His playing skills are only surpassed by his character, as scouts rave about his work ethic and dedication. Four teams brought Jones in for a visit. He is likely to be drafted in the middle rounds

Sexy

We don't have a lot of the 'sexy' names but we have some true gems. The quote Payton used last year... "show me something". Young must have showed Payton something with his pro day from what I hear.
