Wide receiver John Brown is an incredibly fast athlete that also has a knack for making big plays on special teams. He's been solid not only in training camp but also in preseason football to the point that he's just a few spots away from really making a name for himself. He's versatile enough to be considered another version of a DeSean Jackson kind of player. Keep an eye out for him when drafting.

Wide receiver Dontrelle Inman has shown glimpses of raw potential in preseason football to the point that he's able to make big touchdown receptions in traffic. Whether he is kept by the San Diego Chargers or not remains to be seen as final roster cuts are coming. Wherever he ends up, he will be a true deep sleeper at his position and if he's available when you're drafting, he's worth the investment.

Wide receiver Charles Johnson is in a golden situation with the Cleveland Browns. Due to their situation at the position, Johnson will be able to separate himself from the pack like he's been doing all preseason long. Many consider him to be the best wideout on the roster and once the football is coming his way, will deliver with consistency.

Despite being a rookie, wide receiver Donte Moncrief will have a solid season because he's showing signs that he's worthy of being a top contributor on the team's offense. With Andrew Luck under center, expect Moncrief to see plenty of opportunities to help his team win football games. While he's battling his way up the depth chart, come mid to late season he should be given some more priority on offense.

Wide receiver Jeff Janis is the ultimate deep sleeper for his position since he's a human highlight machine. He makes big plays in the red zone and despite being down on the team's depth chart, Janis will eventually crack top three over time. Patience is key until his big opportunity comes which won't take long with how well he's been playing.
