Receiver Sanu improves on combine speed at Rutgers pro day

Representatives from 24 teams were at the Rutgers pro day on March 21. Prospects ran indoors on FieldTurf.

Justin Francis, DE, (6-foot-2 7/8, 270 pounds) — Francis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.94 and 4.90 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical and a 9-8 broad jump, and completed the short shuttle in 4.39 seconds.

Mohamed Sanu, WR, (6-1 5/8, 211) — Sanu, who caught 115 passes for 1,206 yards last season, was projected as a possible first-round pick by some but hurt his stock by running a 4.67-second 40-yard dash. At his pro day, he did everything over again, running the 40 in 4.55 and 4.54 seconds. He also had a 4.21-second short shuttle. He was worked out by one of the Saints scouts. Scouts said he had a very good workout, catching the ball well. He just doesn’t look like he gets a lot of separation when he’s going for it. He ran the first 10 yards of the 40 in 1.6 seconds.

Desmond Wynn, OG, (6-5 5/8, 303) — Wynn stood on everything he did at the NFL Scouting Combine except for the short shuttle, which he completed in 4.46 seconds.

Joe Martinek, FB, (5-11 1/2, 224) — Martinek ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 seconds both times. He is very, very fast; he ran the first 10 yards of the 40 in 1.5 seconds, or a full tenth of a second faster than Sanu. He recorded a 32-1/2-inch vertical, a 9-8 broad jump, a 4.21-second short shuttle, a 6.87-second three-cone and did 26 strength lifts. He will be a seventh-round pick or priority free agent.
