BIO: All-conference choice every year since his sophomore campaign. Finished his senior season with 72/1/5 after 71/2/5 as a junior. Team-leading 122 tackles as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Explosive athlete who sacrifices his body to make the tackle. Displays a great burst of closing speed, sideline-to-sideline range and goes hard until the whistle blows. Disciplined and covers well in the box.
NEGATIVES: Short, engulfed at the point by blocks and has tackles broken. Plays out of control and gets caught up the field. Late reactor in pass coverage with marginal man-to-man.
ANALYSIS: Sanders is a high motor, competitive player who coaches will love. Has the physical abilities to play in any kind of system but must learn to recognize pass assignments quicker and play under control.
