Jock Sanders Scouting Report
|School:||West Virginia Mountaineers|
|Height & Weight:||5'7 - 179 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jock Sanders, WR, West Virginia
Sanders has continued to be the go-to-receiver in 2010 and through seven games leads WVU with 39 catches. The problem is Sanders is just 5-7 and 179 pounds. He has some strength to fight off bigger defenders, but most of his yardage comes off easy catches where he will make defenders miss and make a big play out of nothing.
However, he does have great speed and can run by most corners in the Big East. But even in the Big East he can be bumped off the line of scrimmage by a bigger corner. That problem will be magnified in the NFL and that severely limits his value at the next level.
2/10 Update: Sanders was a late addition to the Senior Bowl roster and got to show his stuff on a big stage. His size is the biggest issue, but Sanders has proven to be quite durable and finished off his collegiate career by tying a West Virginia record playing in 51 games. He also is the program's all-time leading receiver with 206 catches. Sanders will grade out relatively well at the NFL Combine, but his size will keep him in the later rounds.
