On Monday, I said that I’d rather cover the Masters than write another “sleepers who will surprise at Kansas City Chiefs OTAs” article. Then Thursday rolled around, and I remembered why I ever penned one in the first place; there’s nothing else to talk about.

The end of the draft always marks the beginning of a dead period. Some people will argue that OTAs are a week away, which would be relieving if it meant anything. Let’s be clear: Nothing positive comes from OTAs—at least from a fan’s perspective.

There’s no live contact. There’s a smattering of injuries. Every other tweet is a five-year forecast based on a cone drill. (“He had an impressive workout today. Really looks like he’s coming into his own.” [Fast-forward] “And with the second pick, the Detroit Pistons select…Darko Milicic.”)

Instead of rattling on about OTAs, let’s focus on what everyone actually cares about: the regular season. Here are a handful of sleepers who, if healthy, will make names for themselves.
