Could be a solid WR prospect, but he is not what the Bucs need IMO. Gotta go free agency for a WR.
TJ Graham - NC State. Looked very athletic, agile and smooth in the combine drills."...After showing some sudden speed at the Senior Bowl, N.C. State's T.J. Graham (5-11, 188) ran a fast time with a 40 in 4.41 seconds. He is a special-teams contributor who could be a slot weapon in the NFL. Graham looks like a possible rewarding pick on the third day of the 2012 NFL Draft..."T.J. Graham Scouting Report T.J. Graham - North Carolina State (HT: 5-11⅜ - WT: 182) Positives -- A true big play threat, only had 46 catches this year but four of them went for over 60 yards a piece... Great vertical speed, has elite long speed to get behind the defense, former track guy... Good initial burst and acceleration... Good boundary receiver with nice body control to get his feet down... Excels running vertical routes down the field... Although not tall, he does a good job of tracking the deep ball and can go up and get it... Does a nice job of catching with his hands and secures the football before heading up field... Runs low to the ground, tough to bring down after the catch... Has decent leaping ability and is a terrific overall athlete... Has added value as a kick and punt returner, is the ACC's career leader in kickoff return yards...

Negatives -- Faded down the stretch this year, had a strong bowl game outing, but in his last eight regular season games, had a total of 20 catches for 213 yards and one touchdown... Inconsistent player who can disappear during games, had six games as a senior with two or less receptions... Never dominated ACC play; prior to his senior year, he never had more than 25 catches or 320 receiving yards in a season... Undersized, has a weak frame, can get pushed around... Has just average lateral quickness and doesn't cut very well, is more of a straight line runner... Raw route runner who rounds his cuts and needs to refine his short routes... Lack of strength will be an issue as a run blocker... Struggles with press coverage, can get shoved off his route... During his sophomore season he suffered a season ending stress fracture in his leg. At North Carolina State -- (Official School Bio) 2010: Has tallied 2,167 yards in career kickoff returns, the best mark in school history and fifth-best in ACC history... Set that school mark with 100 yards on five returns in the win over North Carolina... Had perhaps the biggest play in that Wolfpack win, returning a kick 87 yards for a touchdown to give NC State its first lead of the game... That tied as the third-longest punt return in school history... Named the ACC Specialist of the Week for the UNC game... Has 3,299 all-purpose yards for his career, the 13th-best mark in school history... Pulled down a career-high six catches for a career-high 96 yards and a career-best two touchdowns against Western Carolina... Had six receptions of 20+ yards in 2010...

Started three of the seven games in which he saw action... Scored his first career receiving touchdown in the win over Gardner-Webb... Had seven kickoff returns for 202 yards, including a 93-yard touchdown, versus Duke... That yardage total was a single-game record for a Wolfpack player... Despite missing five whole games, his 574 KOR yards ranked as the eighth-best mark in school history. 2008: An honorable mention All-ACC performer as a kick returner... Ranked fifth in the ACC (29th nationally) in kick return average with a 25.1 mark... Ranked sixth in the ACC in all-purpose yards with 108.1 yards per game - he tallied 1,405 yards for the season... That single-season mark ranked eighth in school... His 1,028 yards in kickoff returns is the school record for a single season... Tallied 22 returns for 628 yards in the first six games of the season, 19 for 400 in the last seven games.
BTW, how far is Travis Benjamin predicted to drop back? That dude lit UP the 40...
IF the Bucs and Schiano actually said they want Sanu, I can guarantee that Sanu will not be in Tampa next year.
Quote from: TBayXXXVII on February 29, 2012, 11:26:35 AMIF the Bucs and Schiano actually said they want Sanu, I can guarantee that Sanu will not be in Tampa next year.Im willing to bet neither said something like that. <--- I'm very much in agreement with you.This story is IMO pure speculations with the only reason being that Schiano was the Rutgers head coach last season.
Sounds like pure Peter King speculation. Absolutely no substance to it other than the fact that Schiano was his coach.
If Sanu fell to the 3rd round, then I would gladly pick him up in a heartbeat. Second round however....HELL NO.
