My Thoughts on Mohamed Sanu


 

Meet Mohamed Sanu, arguably one of the biggest steals of the third-round. Sanu becmae an instant player for the Scarlet Knights when he stepped onto the field. He had immediate success as a freshmen when he accounted for 51 receptions for 639 yards. In his junior year, he had over 1300 yards and 7 TD’s.

The Bengals obviously needed to fill their whole at the #2 receiver. I know many fans were clamoring for Chris Polk or Lamar Miller, but unfortunately they decided they needed to fill the WR void most.

With the 83rd selection overall, the Cincinnati Bengals select Mohamed Sanu. While it was a great idea, I don’t know if its the right pick.

Sanu is physically gifted enough to be a WR at the next level, but in the Big East he was never tested. But overall, I believe he will be a solid receiver for the Bengals.

He has the strength and speed of a NFL receiver. He’s a above average route runner with a wide catching range, but the question is can he constantly. I know he has the ability to be a NFL receiver, but needs A.J. Green to make him an NFL receiver now.
