NFL Scouting Combine 2012: Three From Rutgers Get NFL Combine Invites

Three former Rutgers Scarlet Knights have received invitations to strut their stuff for NFL scouts and general managers during the NFL Scouting Combine Feb. 22-28 in Indianapolis.

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, defensive end Justin Francis and offensive guard Desmond Wynn have received Combine invitations.

Sanu is the most highly-regarded of the Rutgers 2012 NFL Draft prospects. Sanu has been considered a late- first-round or second-round pick in most early mock drafts.

Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has this to say about Sanu:

Physically reminds me some of Hakeem Nicks. Isn’t as NFL ready, but can go get the football, breakdown and separate on all levels of the field. Looks like a future NFL starter who might need some time, but the talent is most definitely there.

Wynn is a 6-6, 295-pound guard who “has a shot a fighting for a roster spot” according to Bunting.

Francis is a 6-4, 275-pound defensive end. Bunting says Francis is “a tweeer, but in a pass happy NFL will have a chance to stick with the right team.”
