Even before last season, I've preached, yelled, blogged and hollered for the Redskins to add more speed on offense.
Not that they missed open opportunities to do so, but the team can't forget about it. And if chips fall the right way come draft time, they could land a steal in the sixth round.
I expect to hear some flack about the team drafting two wide receivers, especially in back-to-back rounds, but South Carolina's Ace Sanders isn't just a receiver.
At 5'7", 175 pounds, it might be easy for some to write Sanders off in the NFL, but he's a much better receiver and pass-catcher than most give him credit for.
In addition to that, Sanders is a terror with the ball in his hands. How the ball gets into his hands, though, will be up to a creative offensive coordinator in a high-powered offense.
Sanders has incredible acceleration and agility. He can go from zero to 60, then to 25, and back to 60 again, all in the blink of an eye. He's the kind lightning-in-a-bottle that you like to see out of a specialist.
For me, Sanders is a steal in the sixth round. He has the acceleration, quickness, hands, toughness and lateral movement you look for in a guy when you're trying to increase your offense's speed.
Believe it or not, I have lots of love for Sanders, too.
