Strong Points: Very productive in his only year as a starter. Adequate RB size but he is thick and strong in the lower body. Quick to the hole with the speed to break long runs. Tough between the tackles -- has very good vision, makes good decisions and can find a seam. Strong, consistent after-contact runner. Good hands and an important part of the Penn State passing game. Willing blocker. Kick return experience.

Weak Points: Only one year as a starter (backed up Saquon Barkley). Needs some work on pass-blocking technique.

The Way We See It: Sanders is a third-year junior and former 5-star recruit who only started one season at Penn State because he was backing up Giants RB Saquon Barkley, the second pick in the 2018 draft. Sanders had a breakout year in 2018 with 1,274 yards and a 5.8-yard average. He also had 24 receptions. With only one starting season, he has less wear and tear on his body than most running backs entering the NFL. Sanders isn't a very big guy, but he plays big and runs with power. He has proven to be very good after initial contact. Equally adept running inside and outside. Has the traits to be an immediate contributor as a rookie and can play in any type of offense. An upgrade at the position for many clubs.
