How high will Rutgers University star wide receiver Mohamed Sanu go in the 2012 NFL Draft? We are more than four months away from the draft, which will be held April 26-28, and we know that the stock of draft prospects can take a multitude of twists and turns between now and then.
Right now, though, it appears that Sanu could be a late first or second-round pick. SB Nation will track the ups and downs of Sanu's NFL draft prospects via this StoryStream as the draft approaches.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Sanu led the Big East Conference in receptions this season with 109, and had 204 during the past three seasons. He has averaged 10.8 yards per catch during his collegiate career.
Sanu is currently not listed on the Big Boards of either Mel Kiper or Todd McShay, the ESPN draft gurus. SB Nation's Mocking The Draft has Sanu ranked as the No. 31 overall prospect in rankings updated as of Dec. 1.
In its inaugural 2012 NFL Mock Draft, SB Nation has Sanu going to the San Francisco 49ers with the 30th pick of the first round. SBN's Ryan Van Bibber says Sanu is "A big, physical target with good hands and yards after the catch ability fits perfectly with Smith's limitations as a quarterback."
Draft Tek has Sanu going in the middle of the second round (45th overall) to the Buffalo Bills.
We only have to wait four-and-a-half months to find out what really happens. We will keep you posted.
