NFL Draft Report

By Joe Buscaglia

WR Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers

Mohamed Sanu, #6
6'2", 218 lbs., 22 years old
New Brunswick, NJ
2011: 115 receptions, 1206 yards, 7 TD
2010: 44 receptions, 418 yards, 2 TD
2009: 51 receptions, 639 yards, 3 TD

- An NFL-ready physical frame. Great size/weight combination and jumping ability.
- The constant target of Rutgers' passing attack in 2011. The second-highest total of receptions for the Scarlet Knights was 32. Sanu got all the attention from defenses, too.
- Unafraid of going over the middle and taking a huge hit. Holds on to the ball by absorbing the contact.
- Great movement with his feet in space. Can make people miss.
- Good hands, good ball security.

- Won't wow you with his speed.
- Not as physical as his size would indicate in blocking downfield.
- Catches the ball inside his pads at times rather than going for the hands catch.

Special Notes:
- Turns 23 in August.
- Early-entry.
- Had 59 carries in 2010 and 62 carries in 2009 with Rutgers.
- Played quarterback, wide receiver and punter in high school.

Projection: Late 1st to 2nd round
- Sanu was Mr. All Everything to Rutgers this season. While he won't be an over-the-top number one receiver, he has the ability to be a consistent second target for whatever team drafts him.
