Front and center this weekend are questions about Mohamed Sanu's foot speed, as documented in the linked article from Sports Illustrated. That quote about Hakeem Nicks is baffling. Nicks is hardly a track star. He goes for long gains by running good routes, and being agile enough to juke defenders like Kareem Jackson out of their cleats.
Mohamed Sanu is definitely capable of that. Once again, these supposed insights from amateurs who don't actually watch game film - that Sanu is supposedly a raw route runner, or not good after the catch - are so incoherently wrongt as to literally make one's jaw drop. Yes, it's a question whether Sanu will run a 4.5 or 4.6 in a the 40-yard dash. As Nicks showed, it really doesn't matter. No one is expecting Sanu to be the next big play threat in the NFL. Hiowever, he is more than capable of joining Nicks in the ranks of elite possession receivers.
In other Combine news, there may be some injury concerns with Justin Francis and Desmond Wynn. Sanu should be working out tomorrow, and all the numbers will be available at the NFL's Combine site.
