NFL Prospect Review: Sanders Commings

Next in a series for State of the Texans.

Sanders Commings
How did Commings end up at Georgia?
A native of Augusta, he never seriously considered another program, only visiting UGA. He was drafted by the Diamondbacks as an outfielder, but chose to stick with football.

What did he mean to the Georgia football program?
Sanders has been quite an important defensive player for Georgia. He has some of the biggest defensive plays in the past few years for Georgia, including a couple of game saving INTs in his career. He did spend some time on the bench for a personal issue, but by all other accounts, he is a quiet show up and play kind of guy.

What are his strengths?
Size. Ability to make adjustments mid-route. Press coverage ability. Strength.

What are his weaknesses? 
Struggles playing coverage off the ball. Tendency to get caught cheating on blitzes, so he is easier to pick up. Can get pantsed on double moves. Some teams will see his arrest as a character thing, but if they dig, I can't see it being too big of a deal.

A big bodied cornerback can he play safety if needed?
Absolutely. I think he'll have to move to safety to stick in the league.

How do you project him at the next level?
Very hard to say. He is a hard working guy who has the athletic talent to be an impact player in the right defense. He could end up playing several years at safety or end up not even getting a practice roster spot. I have to think his upside of a press coverage safety who can also play solid run defense gets him a couple of seasons to prove himself.
