We continue to roll out, update, tweak, edit and revisit our projections and previews prior to your fantasy draft. And while doing so we're going to occasionally take a more-detailed look at some of the nation's more intriguing stars for 2012.
The players featured over the next month or so may not be the top player at their respective positions, but they'll be ones that caused the most discussion around our roundtable or appear poised for a breakout or letdown campaign.
Breakdowns of college football's top offensive stars can of course be found in the CFFInsider.com 2012 Draft Kit.
2012 Position Rank: Lintz ranked too low on our sleeper list?
2012 Draft Kit Preview:
Still listed as a tight end, Andrei Lintz is in a good position to nab one of the starting inside receiver positions. He tore up every spring scrimmage stat sheet we saw. Which could spell big numbers for 6-5 and 250-pounder. Finding sleeper TE's is difficult, so you may want to add Lintz to your potential breakout list.
It is still too early to call Lintz the starter at the Y receiver spot. There is plenty of competition of the spot, especially with running back Rickey Galvin getting a look at inside receiver. I would suspect that Galvin would line up at the H spot, but it is another body fighting for an inside spot. Either way Lintz should see plenty of action this fall.
He's a big body and has been catching everything in sight since this spring. Pass receptions shouldn't be an issue, but we'll have to see who becomes the main target in the red zone. At 6-5 and 250 pounds, you would think that Lintz has a good opportunity to see a few balls thrown his way near the goal line.
We've been pimping Lintz for a while now, so don't expect him to fly under the radar of your savvy league owners.
Steady tight end production has been fleeting in recent years, and we are certainly intrigued by Lintz's potential. With all sleeper and keeper picks though, it is still just potential. We have a number of sleeper tight ends identified in our Draft Kit; draft them accordingly.
