Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Sanders is a stocky athlete with adequate size, length, and frame. He added size to his frame in the last five years that has helped his playing strength. I see him continuiting grow in this area.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

As an athlete, Sanders is limited/poor. He makes up for this with his adequate play strength and flexibility.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

The run/pass option offense that Sanders played in did not allow him to show many of his technical skills. His ball skills, vertical threat, and releases will need development. Sanders has shown an adequate and above the line ability in his intermediate route running and perimeter blocking

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Braylon Sanders is a slot receiver who will need to have a major impact on special teams. He will need to develop an ability to master his route running as his route concepts in college were limited. In addition, he will need to improve his ability to seperate vertically.
