Pos: 
Playmaking running back with big upside. Multi-cut ball carrier with the ability to make defenders miss and create yardage. Strong and displays terrific quickness and footwork as well as the speed and agility to turn the corner. Keeps his feet moving, picks up yardage off initial contact and can drag the pile on occasion. Displays outstanding vision, runs with a smooth style and picks up big yardage. Has a burst through the hole, beats defenders into the open field and plays fast. Displays outstanding balance and body control and runs low to the ground and behind his pads. Easily regains his balance off the initial hit and makes several defenders miss over the course of a single run.
Neg: 
Not much of a pass catcher out of the backfield. Possesses more of a burst than long speed. Has a small body of work at the college level.
Analysis: 
Sanders watched his game take off last season after he became the feature runner for Penn State and has all the makings of a big-time back at the next level. He must polish his game but should be productive early in his rookie year at the next level.
