BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter at strong safety who briefly spent time at outside linebacker as a sophomore. Senior totals included 82 tackles after 83 as a junior. Set a record for defensive backs at the combine when he completed 29 reps on the bench.

POSITIVES: "Physical, run defending safety best playing downhill. Flies up the field, flashes on the scene and chases hard to get involved in the action. Displays a burst of closing speed, active in all aspects of the game and works hard to intimidate opponents. Effectively reads the action and displays solid speed to the sidelines."

NEGATIVES: Displays marginal ball skills and not active in coverage.

ANALYSIS: "Sanford is a tough, hard-working safety best making plays up the field, between the numbers. He has limitations in coverage yet could fill the role as a traditional strong safety."

PROJECTION: Fifth Round
