NFL Draft 2012, Mohamed Sanu Projected To 49ers In First Round Of Latest Mock Draft

Former Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has been projected to go No. 30 in the first-round on the 2012 NFL Draft in a Rob Rang's CBS Sports Mock Draft (via CBS Sports).

Here's what Rang had to say about the selection of Sanu by the 49ers in his mock

The injury to Josh Morgan and relative disappointment that Michael Crabtree has been since being the 49ers' 2009 first-round pick makes wide receiver an area of concern. A prototypical receiver for the West Coast system, Sanu's size, physicality and toughness make up for a lack of elite speed.

While the knock on Sanu may be his speed, his hands are certainly not in question. During his senior season at Rutgers in 2011, Sanu caught 115 passes, a Big East and Rutgers record.

Mocking The Draft has Sanu at No. 31 in their 2012 NFL Draft Overall Rankings.
