2012 NFL Draft: Mohamed Sanu, Kendall Wright Impress At Wednesday Pro Day Events

There were other football activities happening on Wednesday, football activities not related to Tim Tebow or Gregg Williams. Hard to believe, I know. College pro day events were happening throughout the country, and some of the players racing around the tracks at those pro days will be in consideration for the St. Louis Rams when the 2012 NFL Draft rolls around in about a month.

So who stood out on Wednesday? Let's take a look.

Mohamed Sanu

The Rutgers wide receiver had a big day. He boosted his 40 time, which answered some questions about his speed. Sanu has always had a reputation as a sure-handed, physical receiver, but questions have persisted about him as the total package.

Here's what Tony Pauline of said about Sanu after his pro day.

The general consensus from the Rutgers pro-day is receiver Mohamed Sanu made a lot of money for himself today. The junior carried the momentum of improved 40 times this morning into his position workout and a number of scouts said Sanu, "looked really, really good." He caught the ball well, which was no surprise, but also ran crisp routes and practiced as fast as he timed earlier in the day. Could Sanu now squeeze into the late part of round one? Maybe, but if he doesn't he will surely come off the board during the first half dozen picks of the second round.

Kendall Wright

Baylor has its pro day today, and Robert Griffin III was not the only show there. Wide receiver Kendall Wright had a good day for himself as well.

A faster 40 time still did not match with the speed Wright shows on the field. Nevertheless, his work in position drills confirmed what any Baylor game tape reveals. He showed burst and a second gear on deep throws, good routes, explosion ... nobody who watched Wright workout on Wednesday came away with any doubts about him as a top-20 pick.

Donnie Fletcher

The Boston College cornerback was left off the Combine invite list. He will not be left off any draft boards this year. He stole the show at his pro day, over first-round pick Luke Kuechly even. Rob Rang at NFL Draft Scout and CBS Sports has Fletcher ranked as a sixth-round pick, but he could be coming off the board higher than that.
