Former Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had been sliding down 2012 NFL Draft boards amid concerns that he wasn't fast enough to translate his accomplishments to the NFL.
Consider those concerns squashed.
Sanu ran the 40-yard dash in an unofficial 4.41 seconds at Rutgers' NFL Pro Day on Tuesday, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, a performance that should boost his stock among NFL scouts. Sanu was originally considered a late-first round draft pick in most mock drafts, but had begun to fall after running a 4.67 second 40-yard dash at the 2012 NFL Combine.
The entire list of Rutgers player participating in the Pro Day follows:
Manny Abreu, Justin Francis, Edmond Laryea, Joe Martinek, Caleb Ruch, Mohamed Sanu, Desmond Stapleton, San San Te, Jawann Westerman and Desmond Wynn. In addition, former Scarlet Knights Dennis Campbell, Matthew Hardison, Antonio Lowery, Tyrone Putman and Richard Muldrow.
