After an extremely impressive performance at Rutgers Pro Day, SI.com's Tony Pauline wrote that Sanu "made a lot of money for himself today." How much? Well, that is still to be determined. It does seem, however, that Sanu has reversed his slide down draft boards.
Sanu had gone from a late- first-round to an early- third-round choice in many mock drafts. The most recent draft simulation from Draft Tek, released Monday, shows a reversal in fortune for the former Rutgers wide receiver. Draft Tek has Sanu going to the Houston Texans in the second round, 58th overall.
Draft Tek says:
"The WR prospect with the best hands in this year's draft class lands in the Texans' pocket . . . and will soon be lining up opposite Andre Johnson. And you can quite worrying about the pedestrian 4.65 Sanu ran at the Combine . . . he scorched the Rutgers' track with 4.41 and 4.48 at 6-foot-2 and 211 pounds. But we shouldn't worry too much about underwear speed vs football speed, the way Sanu explodes out of his cuts . . . which is all insignficant if you don't catch the ball!"
Yes, it would appear that Sanu's stock is once again on the rise.
