Table inside Article
Sanders is a natural and talented pass catcher with a knack for producing in the passing game. Has fantastic body control and hands for a prospect his size, rarely dropping a pass. Teams were forced to cover him with safeties because he was too much for college linebackers. Struggled mightily as an in-line blocker against speedy edge rushers. Surrendered three sacks in his final season, according to PFF. Decent at best in blocking for the run game too, possibly limiting him from certain formations or requiring lots of work.

OVERVIEW: From his days dominating the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex at Denton Ryan High School, Sanders' versatility has been his calling card. It took some time for Texas to find him a role, but when it did, he became a reliable piece of the offense. His 45 receptions and 682 yards are impressive when you see the receiving talent he had to battle for targets. Additionally, red-zone production is one area in which Sanders has some unlocked potential. In his final season, he finished with just two touchdown grabs, a number he should improve on quickly.
