As a Rutgers fan, I've seen a fair share of him.
People should know that Rutgers is actually turning into a pretty good pro football factory. They don't turn out a high volume of NFL guys, but nearly all of those who play in the league make a good role for themselves - Rice, Britt, Davis, Brackett, McCourty brothers, Courtney Greene. I could go on. I think that there's a great chance that Sanu becomes an impact player because he is prepared well in college to do so - on the field and off.
Secondly, he has a great pair of hands. Everyone has their drops, but I think that he'd easily have the best hands on the Niners. I think he'd be a great fit in a west coast system too. When you catch over 110 balls in a season, chances are you're going to drop a couple.
I will be curious to see what he times in the 40 though at the combine. Speed is one of his big question marks, so if he doesn't time well, I don't know if he'll be a serious option for us. Anyway I see him much like in the Crabtree mold. Even compares to Michael Floyd of the same class.
The thing that I do see going for him in terms of Baalke's draft philosophy is that I think that Sanu still has tons of upside. Also, last year was almost a waste because of how bad the Rutgers offense was and even this year he still never had time to mesh with a QB.
Overall, I'd love to see the Niners take him.
