Default How High Can Mohamed Sanu Climb?

With major question marks regarding many of the 1st round WRs, Alshon Jeffery [speed, weight] and Kendall Wright [height].

With Justin Blackmon and Michael Floyd seemingly locked in at the #1 and #2 spots how high can Sanu climb?

Can Sanu be the 3rd WR taken in the draft?

Can Saun be a top 20 pick?

Sanu has been characterized as a "possession receiver" by all of the analysts. Translation: Big, solid hands, good route runner, but slow. If he runs a sub 4.45 40 then he'll immediately be re-characterized into an elite receiver and no question be a Top-20 pick.

Pretty much. Another guy who should easily be amongst everyone's favorite players in the draft no matter where he goes...A perfect fit for the Jets with his legit WR skills and his Wildcat versatility jic they're spending time hiding Sanchez again next year.

I like Sanu's skills. He has excellent body control and hands. Even though his timed speed might not be amazing, he is an extremely savvy route runner who knows how to fake out corners. He has the stuff to be a terror on third down and in the red zone.
I had him at 29 to San Francisco, but if Houston or Cleveland (Falcons pick) drafted him, I would not be surprised. Top 20-25 is possible.

40 times are killer for WRs. If he runs better than a 4.48 at the combine Sanu will climb.

But I don't think he'll have a higher draft grade than someone like Juron Criner.

The word with Criner is that he's not coachable - not sure how true that is. Whatever health problems he had in the summer also need to be looked at.

As for Sanu, I like him. Has the ability to make the circus catch - but does drop some routine balls. Still coming along with his routes. Has some upside - can't see why he can't sneak into the back end of the first round.

He's going to run fast than everyone thinks. He's a great athlete and with the training time he'll get that 40 to at least a 4.45. I think he ends up going top 20, top 25 at worst.

I rarely bring stats into my evaluation of prospects, but I have kind of a hard time projecting a guy who only averaged 10 yards per reception in college as an elite NFL receiver.

Maybe Pats, Texans or 49ers

Sanu will go before Criner on Draft Day. I think Sanu has a shot at late first. I don't think Criner goes before the very late second, probably more early 3rd round type.

They were in a very conservative offense that had Sanu run a lot of short and intermediate routes. He made some nice catches in traffic, but with Chas Dodd, they rarely threw it down the field.

Yes. Mucho underratedo as an athleteo here, possibly because of how much that offense sucked.

If you live in the area you've been reading about Sanu since Day 1, because he was an impact talent for Rutgers from Day 1.

I was just thinking about how many good WRs this class has. It really has a lot more potential first rounders than it's being given credit for.

Before the season started, most people had 3 (Jeffery, Blackmon, and Floyd - in that order mostly). Now there is a group of 6+ guys (Blackmon, Wright, Floyd, Jeffery, Sanu, Rueben Randle) that might challenge for spots in the first. So a bad combine or a bad pro-day could really hurt one of the 6.

Before you ask why Rueben Randle; he could very well be a quick riser after the Combine because of how well he will time. Some people will be shocked by it.

If he runs in the 4.4's watch out for the Texans we are wideout hungary.

For Sanu, I really see his only knock being a lack of game breaking speed. He's no Desean Jackson, but he's not slow by any means. People need to realize how awful Rutgers offense has been. No real quarterbacks to speak of, and when there was a decent QB, he would have no time to throw any deep routes because of the lack of time. Sanu has unreal strength and hands and is an EXCELLENT run blocker. Good team mate and hard worker. People look at stats and are saying he won't run a 4.29 and knocking him for it. He's going to be a great WR in this league, and Boldin/Nicks comparisons are pretty spot on

His low ypc tells me Sanu doesn't have ideal NFL speed for the position. Is he a guy who can be a true #1 in the pros??? If not, I don't see a team spending a first round pick on him.

Playing for a bad offense shouldn't prevent a special WR talent from exploding statistically at least a few times in college. But maybe he'll be a better pro than collegian. I don't know.

I have no idea how Sanu does against man coverage or if he can separate.
The Big East wasn't a strong conference this year, I don't know why Sanu didn't dominate more if he's considered a first round prospect by some.

Playing for a bad offense shouldn't prevent a special WR talent from exploding statistically at least a few times in college. But maybe he'll be a better pro than collegian. I don't know.

I have no idea how Sanu does against man coverage or if he can separate.
The Big East wasn't a strong conference this year, I don't know why Sanu didn't dominate more if he's considered a first round prospect by some.
As I said: he never really ran any deep routes because of the lack of: QB skill, running game and oline during his time here. He was the only offensive threat and CONSTANTLY doubled. Because of this, he never really had many opportunities for big plays. We also loved to throw him quick routes in the flat in 3rd and 2 and such because he literally was Rutgers offense.

People are seriously digging way too much into his YPC. His speed is just fine, as is his separation. He will absolutely be a #1 WR in this league, or an unreal #2.

It's not just a matter of catching long balls, it's taking short passes for long gains. His longest catch in the last two years was only 32 yards. If you're playing in the Big East, I don't care who your quarterback is, you've got to have better than one 32 yard reception if I'm going to draft you to be the No. 1 receiver for an NFL team.

FWIW - Other Rutger receivers last year:

Mark Harrison - 14 catches, 274 yards, 19.6, long of 45, 2 TD.

Brandon Coleman - 17 catches for 552 yards, 32.5, long of 92, 6 TD.

Quron Pratt - 32 catches for 327 yards, 10.2, long of 21, 1 TD

So it's not as if there weren't big plays happening last year. And on 110 catches, Sanu can't break more than a 32-yarder? That just worries me a little.

For Sanu, I really see his only knock being a lack of game breaking speed. He's no Desean Jackson, but he's not slow by any means. People need to realize how awful Rutgers offense has been. No real quarterbacks to speak of, and when there was a decent QB, he would have no time to throw any deep routes because of the lack of time. Sanu has unreal strength and hands and is an EXCELLENT run blocker. Good team mate and hard worker. People look at stats and are saying he won't run a 4.29 and knocking him for it. He's going to be a great WR in this league, and Boldin/Nicks comparisons are pretty spot on
you beat me to it.....
