The Verdict: It can be tough to gauge the physical talent of a C-USA receiver as the offenses in the conference thrive off of spreading teams out and throwing the ball to what amounts to being a ridiculous amount of the time. Still, to overlook Emmanuel Sanders as just a "system player" is to overlook one of the best athletes that the conference has seen in recent years. Not only has SMU headman June Jones compared Sanders to Jerry Rice, but the second year head coach has made no secret about using his star wideout on defense in 2009, hoping to give his secondary a boost of athleticism by installing the 5-foot-11 Sanders at cornerback this past spring. A First Team All-Conference selection a season ago despite being suspended during the final two games of the season, Sanders combines outstanding body control with great field vision, making him one of C-USA's most dangerous playmakers.
