RB Miles Sanders NFL Draft Profile - Penn State

Once again Penn State produces NFL quality RBs for the Draft. Just how good will Miles Sanders be?

Miles Sanders
Penn State

Class Year: Junior
DOB - 5/1/1997
Height - 5'11" Weight - 211 lbs
Twitter: @BoobieMilesXXIV
Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash – 4.49 seconds
Bench Press – 20 Reps (225 lbs)
Vertical Jump – 36.0 Inches
Broad Jump – 124.0 Inches
3 Cone Drill – 6.89 Seconds


Sanders is built to be an RB. He has great change of direction, excellent cutbacks, and excellent body control. He is elusive, has great leg drive and gets plenty of yards after contact. What’s not to like.

There are multiple facets to his game, run, pass catching and blocking, he is the complete package.

Works well inside zones and takes a lot to get him to the ground. He will be a handful for defenders in the NFL. This guy has a bright future.


He seems to struggle to make the right decision on the move. Almost needs to wait and think about what he is going to do before executing it. His brain and body don’t work well together. Needs to sleep with a football in his hand. He doesn’t have good ball control.

Overall Review:

Sanders was a transfer from Pennsylvania and spent a year behind Saquon Barkley before getting his chance to shine in 2018 and he didn’t disappoint.

He has all the right skills for him to do well in the NFL. Look for him as high as late 2nd round or early 3rd.
