The big names will be off the board, but there are always sleepers who slip through the cracks. Here are five possible players who may get overlooked but can contribute in an array of ways.

Lewis gets overlooked because of his fellow teammates (Darqueze Dennard and Kurtis Drummond) in the draft. Lewis has a well-built frame (5-foot-10, 211 pounds) who attacks the line of scrimmage, and could benefit on special teams.

4. OLB Shaquil Barrett -- Colorado State

The Colorado State product has a nonstop motor and is always pursuing the ball carrier. Barrett could benefit with learning from vets and honing his pass rushing.

3. NT Justin Ellis -- Louisiana Tech

The Eagles will be searching for a prototypical nose tackle for their 3-4 defense, and Ellis at 6-foot-2, 334 pounds provides Philadelphia with a large, wide body to eat space. This could be a steal for the Eagles.

2. RB/WR Dri Archer -- Kent State

Archer is a speedy athlete who can line up in a number of positions. He put his name out there with his 4.26-second 40 time at the scouting combine. Archer's quickness and explosiveness would make him dangerous in the Chip Kelly offense.

1. CB Aaron Colvin -- Oklahoma

A torn ACL in a Senior Bowl practice hurt his draft stock, but Colvin is still worth a selection. He is a physical corner who has a great approach against the run and in pass coverage.
