Two Big East draft prospects have impressed Kevin Weidl of Scouts Inc. — Rutgers receiver Mohamed Sanu and West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.

Weidl has spent time watching film in recent days while he breaks down some bowl matchups. Sanu and Smith stood out to him for different reasons. Weidl writes of Sanu:
"While he's not a blazer Sanu is similar to Baltimore Ravens WR Anquan Boldin in his ability to work the skinny post and other intermediate routes. Sanu's solid ball skills and ability to make one-handed grabs can make him a quarterback's best friend."

Sanu, a junior, is considering leaving school early for the NFL draft, and Weidl projects him as a late second-round pick. There are no indications that Smith will leave school early in 2013, but Weidl pegs him as one of the top quarterback prospects for 2013:
"Smith has the arm strength to make all the NFL throws, solid mechanics to get his feet set, and even in a spread offense he shows the ability to get through progressions. It's his composure behind that shaky line that stands out most, though."
