Mohamed Sanu scouting report

Mohamed Sanu WR Rutgers #
Ht: 6’2″

Wt: 215

Strengths:
Adequate height and overall size. A playmaker after the catch; does a nice job quickly securing the ball and taking off downfield. A tough receiver; can take a hit and keep moving. An impressive athlete; played quarterback in high school. Will make some acrobatic catches. Experienced lining up in the slot and on the outside; runs a lot of quick slants from the slot and makes plays after the catch.
Weaknesses:
Plays smaller than his listed height. Not the type of receiver that can consistently go up and fight for a ball in traffic. Wasn’t on the same page as his quarterback at times (e.g. ball lands before he turns to look for it); tough to know who’s to blame in those situations. Catches the ball with his body too often. Speed is average; may not be able to stretch the field at the next level.
Comments:
As good as Sanu was at Rutgers, he may have only scratched the surface of his potential. He has the size and athleticism to be a true No. 1 receiver, but Rutgers used him primarily in the slot, running a lot of quick slants. Due to shaky quarterback play, this was the most effective way for Rutgers to get the ball in the hands of their best offensive weapon. Sanu deserves credit for taking on a role that helped the team win, but it definitely hurt his development as a receiver. He’s too big and not quick enough to be an elite playmaker from the slot at the next level, although his experience in that role certainly helps. He’ll need time to develop, as he learns how to use his size to his advantage on the outside, but he has a ton of upside and Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano speaks highly of his work ethic.
