2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

Sanu is a three-year starter for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Although the team is not known for their passing attack, Sanu does it all for his team in the air. Through eight games, he has 70 receptions for 731 yards and seven TDs. These numbers account for nearly half of the receiving statistics for Rutgers across the board.

Sanu has good, above average size, height and speed. Although he can get a bit sloppy in his technique while making catches, he has shown the ability to snag the ball at its highest point. He can also catch the ball with his hands effortlessly. He will need to improve his release off press coverage and needs to explode off the line.

He isn't afraid to make plays once the ball is in his hands. Sanu can work the middle of the field as well as the edges. He is quick for his size and flows to open spaces very well. He needs to get tougher as a blocker and show more willingness to get physical when up in the air during 50-50 balls.

If paired with a quality No. 1 WR who commands double teams, Sanu is near impossible to cover in single man coverage. He's just too physical and uses his body really well to shield defenders. Let him work the short and intermediate game in single man and he'll be a handful.
