2006 Sleepers: Update

Every year I make up a roster of players that are not likely to get drafted, or maybe just likely to get drafted on the 2nd day, like the one I posted earlier today. Here is a look at my team from last year and how they've fared so far in their rookie years, but remember, I made it after the combine and pro-days, and I will definitely make another one later this year.

QB: Tarvaris Jackson: He got drafted in the 2nd round by the Vikings, has played in 3 games (1 start), and has a 62.5 rating. Not so good, but at least he's getting P.T. after beating out Brad Johnson
RB: Gerald Riggs Jr: He went undrafted, then got cut from the Dolphins practice squad earlier this year.
FB: Ahmard Hall: Went undrafted in the supplemental draft, but the Titans picked him up, and he's started 5 games and played in 12.
TE: Jeff King: He went in the 5th round to the Panthers, made the team, and has played in 10 games, mostly on ST.
WR: Brandon Marshall: The Broncos took him in the 4th round, and he's been making some big plays lately, especially since Jay Cutler has been at QB. (14rec, 224yds, 2TDs)
WR: Marques Colston: Rookie of the year, no question about it, the Saints got him in the 7th round (66rec, 1001yds, 7TDs)
OT: Joe Toledo: The Dolphins took him in round 4, then he won the starting OG job in training camp before a knee injury in the preseason ended his year.
OT: Richard Collier: Went undrafted, then the Jaguars signed him and he made the team. Played in 4 games this year, mostly on ST.
OG: Rob Smith: Went undrafted, got cut in Brown's camp, then signed to the Cleveland practice squad later in the year as a Center.
OG: Jason Murphy: Went undrafted, spent training camp with the Falcons, then signed to the Seahawks practice squad.
C: Jasper Harvey: Went undrafted, cut by the Redskins after training camp, then signed by the Eagles during the season. Has not yet played in a game.

DE: James Wyche: Slipped to the Jaguars in the 7th round, made the team but has spent the year on the bench.
DE: A.J. Schable: Went undrafted, was signed by the Cardinals, who moved him to FB. He has one carry for 5 yards, and 10 tackles and a fumble recovery on special teams.
DT: Chase Page: 7th round pick of the Chargers spent the whole year on the practice squad, until last week, when he signed with the Dolphins and was placed on their active roster.
DT: Scott Paxson: Went undrafted, spent the early part of the year on the Packer's practice squad, but was recently cut, then signed on with the Steeler's practice squad.
LB: Jamar Williams: Drafted by the Bears in the 4th round, he played in 3 games, registering 2 tackles, before being placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
LB:Anthony Trucks: Went undrafted, was signed by the Buc's, then later cut in training camp, but caught on with the Redskin's practice squad last week.
LB: John Busing: Went undrafted, then was signed by the Bengals and made the practice squad as a DB. He was later moved up to the active roster and has played in seven games, notching 4 tackles on special teams.
CB: Jarrett Bush: Went undrafted, was signed and cut by the Panthers in training camp, then immediately picked back up by the Packers. Has played in all 15 games on special teams, totalling 9 tackles.
CB: Dion Byrum: Went undrafted, then spent the early part of the year on the Buc's practice squad. The Panthers later picked him up and he's gotten to play in 3 games thanks to injuries. (9 tackles, 1 deflection)
SS: Jarrad Page: Went in the 7th round to the Chiefs, and has helped them a lot on ST. Has started 2 games at SS and played in all 14 so far. (28tkls, 1int, 1 fumble recovery, 5 deflections)
FS: Nick Turnbull: Spent the majority of the year with the falcons, but was cut last week and signed by the Bears. Has played in 3 games on ST, but has not yet had a tackle.
