Ranking 2020 NFL draft sleepers: 12 prospects we like more than most

As a part of our partnership with ESPN, this story was originally published on ESPN+ and can be viewed in its entirety here with your ESPN+ subscription – Ranking 2020 NFL draft sleepers: 12 prospects we like more than most

Every year, one of my least favorite debates about the NFL draft is what constitutes a “sleeper.” Is it where the prospect went to school? Is it where he will get drafted? Is it about how well known he is or isn't? Quite frankly, the sleeper police need to find better things to do.

What follows is a list of Pro Football Focus‘ favorite 2020 NFL draft sleepers — 12 prospects who, for whatever reason, haven't generated a ton of hype but are still high on PFF's NFL draft Big Board. We'll go in order of where they appear in our overall rankings, starting with the No. 26 prospect on our board and ending with No. 175.
