The draft is almost here, and this morning we take a look at a wide receiver prospect. He’s a local player, and has said that of the two local teams, he would be more interested in playing for our New York Jets. Spotlight on Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers University.

For a full scouting report, visit our friends at

He measures 6’2″, 211 pounds, and ran a 4.67 40 yard dash at the NFL combine.

He was a three year starter at Rutgers and his breakout season came in 2011:

115 Rec, 1206 yards, 7 TDs.

Pros: He is good at shielding defenders away and giving his QB a clear lane to throw.  He has good vision once he has the ball in his hands.  He has good hands and is a good size at 6’2″.  He is an effective return man, and can run wildcat plays as well.  He uses his size to catch the ball at it’s highest point quite well.

Cons: He is not a deep threat at all.  He is a bit raw in his route running.  He can lazy coming out of his breaks, and especially with routes that are longer than 7 to 10 yards down the field.

Take a look at the video and you be the judge:

The Jets are very high on this player, and you can see why. He can clearly do it all well. He would be a good value to the Jets.
