Road to the Draft: Mohamed Sanu

Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
6-foot-2, 211 pounds
Draft projection: Second or third round

Lowdown: Sanu is a big, productive receiver who could play the flanker outside or in the middle as a slot receiver. He caught 210 passes in a three-year career at Rutgers. He had 51 catches as a true freshman in 2009, 44 in 2010 and 115 for 1,206 yards as a junior in 2011. He was better working the middle of the field for the Scarlet Knights. At the NFL Scouting Combine he ran a disappointing time of 4.67 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He rebounded at his pro day workout by running times of 4.55 and 4.54 seconds, according to NFL.com. But watching him during the season, he did not show a lot of downfield separation. He may not be the ideal outside guy the Buffalo Bills are looking for at wideout.

Sanu was born in New Jersey, but moved back and forth during his childhood from the United States to the West African nation of Sierra Leone, where his mother lives.
