Mohamed Sanu #6
Mohamed Sanu has been quietly sensational during his three seasons with the Scarlet Knights. Even so, it was not until the conclusion of the 2011 season that his name began surfacing as a legitimate first-rounder.
At 6'2" and 211 pounds, Sanu is not known to be the fastest, tallest or most explosive receiving threat, but he has proved that he has the confident ability to do whatever is asked of him.
Prior to the Combine, CBSSports.com had him rated as a late first-round pick. Following his weekend in Indianapolis, the website dropped him into the late second round.
This is not because of a poor performance at the Combine. As expected, he was solid in all the events but did not wow with his athletic ability.
His stock is declining because of the many wide receivers who were able to show off their elite talent. Players like Stephen Hill, Michael Floyd and Rueben Randle impressed scouts with their combination of size, speed and athleticism.
I do not agree with CBSSports.com's rating. His game film alone earns him early second-round consideration. However, his maximum potential is nowhere near that of his fellow prospects (a factor that will weigh heavily on the minds of NFL teams looking to add a playmaker).
