Overview

Sanu came in as a heralded recruit and was the first freshman to start a season opener at any position in the Greg Schiano era at Rutgers. Sanu missed only one start in his career and has continued to develop significantly each year. He has good size and is capable of making a lot of plays within a West Coast offense. He is a player who can separate well and excels in the short to intermediate passing game, an ideal receiver for a timing-based, pass-often offense. He is a polished all-around player.

Analysis

Strengths

Sanu is excellent when working drive routes and being tasked with working across the field to read coverages and sit down in the holes of zones. He is a natural at shielding himself from defenders and giving the quarterback a clear throwing lane. He is a reliable hands catcher who is very technical at the top of his routes and when competing with corners to give himself just enough space to secure the catch. Sanu is a throwback receiver who sees only the ball when going across the middle. He is fearless in all aspects of his game.

Weaknesses

Sanu is virtually non-existent in the deep passing game. He is slow off the line of scrimmage and doesn’t have the speed to get behind NFL corners. He can get lazy in and out of his breaks downfield, and he almost loses interest in competing once the route gets deeper than 7 to 10 yards. He is not an explosive athlete with the ball in his hands and simply gets what he can after the catch.
