5 Players the New York Giants should watch in the Senior Bowl
By Reese Nasser
Myjai Sanders, Edge Cincinnati
Cincinnati edge rusher Myjai Sanders proved to be one of the best edge rushers in college football. He racked up five sacks and seven tackles for loss while also helping lead Cincinnati to the college football playoff.
Sanders played arguably the best game of his career against Alabama in the playoff. In this game, he recorded a career-high 10 pressures.
He had made a name for himself by being an elite edge rusher. His ability to come off the edge is one of the best in college football. He gives even the best tackles a difficult time due to his speed.
This speed, paired alongside his fast hands and pure explosion off the line is what makes Sanders such an interesting prospect. He has also shown an elite ability to knock down passes. Over his final two seasons, he recorded 11 batted passes
While Sanders is 255 pounds, he is somewhat lean. This leads to many people thinking that he could be somewhat undersized. Up to this point, his size hasn’t stopped him from being effective in both the run and pass game.
Over his past three seasons at Cincinnati, Sanders lined up both over the opposing tackle, and on the outside. The ability to do both would not only bring depth to this New York Giants team but could also help Sanders adjust quicker to the NFL game. If the Giants choose to address other issues on day one of the draft, Sanders could be a potential option on day two.
