Mohamed Sanu is one of the AFC's most versatile players

Andy Lyons

According to a ranking listed by Scouts Inc., they love Mohamed Sanu's versatility.

Typically when we've applied the versatility label, the context is usually referring to Paul Alexander's love for offensive linemen that play multiple positions. Gary Horton with Scouts Inc. expanded the context and wrote that Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is one of the AFC's most versatile players (ESPN In$ider).

He is not a household name, but Sanu has a chance to contribute to this improved offense in a lot of ways. He is coming off a foot injury that curtailed his production a year ago, but he is now healthy and should be the No. 2 wide receiver to complement A.J. Green. We figure to see more two-tight-end sets in Cincy, which should get him more single coverage situations. The coaches liked his skill set enough to let him throw a touchdown pass a year ago, and he even ran the ball a few times out of the backfield.

Should we bring up throwing 73-yard touchdown passes like a boss?

Versatility could be applied with multiple perspectives. Orson Charles will play an H-Back role with the goal of being a balanced players as a blocker and route-runner out of the backfield. Offensive tackles Anthony Collins and Dennis Roland have spent time at guard. Trevor Robinson primarily played guard at Notre Dame before becoming the fan-favorite center.

Horton concluded with honorable mentions for rookies, naming Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (and former Bearcats tight end Travis Kelce.

Bernard will start the season as a backup to veteran starter BenJarvus Green-Ellis, but his skill set is totally different. He will get some carries as a runner, but his biggest value may be as a receiver, especially on screen passes. And by the way, he is a solid pass-blocker, which is a skill that will get him on the field quickly as a rookie.
