NFL Combine 2012 Workout Results: Rutgers' Mohamed Sanu Doesn't Impress In 40-Yard Dash

Mohamed Sanu, a wide receiver from the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football program, is currently being worked out at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Sanu, a possible first-round selection, just ran the 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.65 seconds.

The time isn't impressive when it comes to wide receivers, however, Sanu has never been known for his straight speed. Sanu, who was measured on Friday at 6-foot-2, 211 pounds, is more of a possession receiver that can run good routes and has outstanding hands.

"Most of his catches are going to be contested because he doesn't have great speed," said NFL Network's NFL Draft expert Mike Mayock after Sanu's attempt at the 40-yard dash. "But boy, he's got a big body and he's a tough kid and I like him."

"He didn't run fast, but Mohamed Sanu is a good football player. That's all I have to say."

Sanu will have more opportunities to impress NFL front-office brass and scouts, as he still needs to run through catching drills and do workouts (20-yard shuttle and three-cone drill) that suits his type of skill-set better.

Overall, Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill ran the fastest 40-time out of all the wide receivers (4.30), while Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III (4.38) and Stanford's Andrew Luck (4.59) impressed everyone with their speed.
