Scouting Report
After four exceptional seasons at Florida State, Sanders enters the NFL draft as one of the more touted offensive linemen available. He started all but two games at left or right tackle during his four seasons with the Seminoles, bringing great durability and reliability to the table. Originally projected as a late first-round pick, Sanders could fall into the second after a poor showing at the Senior Bowl. Sanders also failed to impress at the NFL combine, where he finished no better then tied for 17th for his position in any drill. He posted a disappointing 40-yard dash time of 5.41 seconds and only managed 28 reps in the bench press. His time of 8.15 seconds in the three-cone drill was the third-worst mark among all participants. Sanders has proven to be extremely valuable as a pass blocker but needs to work on opening holes in the running game. Sanders, who received a superior ranking as a violist in the chamber orchestra at Florida State, brings no red flags with him to the next level. He has great size, but may need to put on more weight if he hopes to reach his full potential. While Sanders is considered a pretty safe bet to contribute at the next level, it remains to be seen if he has what it takes to become an elite pro.
