I recently made a mock where I had the Texans taking Alshon Jeffery in the first instead of Mohamed Sanu I think a majority of you thought I was crazy or a dumb ass. So I decided to compare them as prospects.
Jeffery 6'4 233
Sanu 6'2 215
Jeffery has the size to be a lethal weapon in the red zone. Sanu may have a better build to catch more balls but I still have to give Jeffery the nod.
Jeffery has been a decent route runner in his days at USCAR, and has shown that he may improve. But I have to give the nod to Sanu because his route running is one of his true strenghts.
Both of them aren't going to blow you away with speed, but if I have to choose one it would be Sanu.
It would not be to far fetched to say that Sanu has glue for hands. But then again Jeffery's hands are like super glue.
Ability to make defenders miss
When watching Jeffery play you always notice how defenders just bounce off of him. Sanu does not have the strength to make defender miss as well as Jeffery.
That was my reasoning behind picking Jeffery over Sanu. Sanu is definitely the safer pick, but Jeffery has a higher ceiling and does have the ability to become an elite reciver.
What are your thoughts. Am I still a dumb ass, or did I sway you one way or another.
