Rams held private workout with WR/KR Jock Sanders

The St. Louis Rams worked out West Virginia WR/KR Jock Sanders recently, putting him through wide receiver and running back drills. Sanders is a jack of all trades in the Dexter McCluster mode, and during his time at WV he played in all three roles, seeing most of his snaps as a receiver. 

Like McCluster, Sanders is a smaller player, just 5'7" 181 lbs. Sanders scant size doesn't lack for strength though. He put up 19 reps on the bench press at the Combine. As far as his workout with the Rams, Sanders described it to the National Football Post like this:

The teams have been excited to see my routes and they seem impressed. I think they were a little surprised to see what I could do at running back and see the endurance I had doing all the drills at both positions.

Here's Jock Sanders' scouting report from NFL Draft Scout, which portrays a quick, elusive runner who has a similar skill set as similar players listed at running back that the Rams have talked to over the last couple months, guys like Derrick Locke or Sanders' teammate Noel Devine. Sanders is projected as a late-round pick or possible free agent.

On a related West Virginia note, the Rams have also shown interest in 6'4" safety Robert Sands
