Anecdotal: A three star recruit by 247Sports, Rival, and ESPN this prospect is the son of Rudy and Yvette Sanchez and went to high school in Texas. A stand-out defensive back and receiver in high school he redshirted in 2012 before making his debut in 2013. He was a Freshman All-American in 2013 and elected to the All-Big 12 First Team in 2014.

Final Thought: At 179 pounds Sanchez is small and his ability to hold up at the NFL level is questionable, but his overall skill, fluid hips, and athleticism are impressive. The more you see him, however, the more you see the lapses in awareness when covering crossing routes while he is in zone, poor recovery speed when he is beaten, and how his size hurts him against stronger receivers. Due to his play-making good mechanics, and athleticism some teams may look at Sanchez as a free safety prospect.
