  • 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.

                  I think he can go at the end of the First round

                  Maybe Pats, Texans or 49ers

                    He is one of the first round WR I would really like.

                      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.

                            Hard to see him getting by both Patriot first round picks.

                              if he goes past top 10, he'll be considered a steal.
