PROS: Miles Sanders illustrates springy cuts and is decisive when needing to stick his foot in the ground and break back against the grain of defensive flow. Sanders is smooth picking his way through the point of attack, patient to allow linebackers to declare and step into holes before picking his way into space. Shows admirable leg drive and complimentary power to the elusive components of his game, will put defenders in a bind in one on one situations. Secondary acceleration coming out the back end offers a lot of chunk gain potential, is able to eat up a handful of yards if needed based on down and distance for conversions. Start/stop ability is quick thanks to sweet feet and ability to stay balanced with a hard stutter step. Hesitation move against lateral pursuit can put would be tacklers on ice.

CONS: Experience is limited after backing up former PSU RB Saquon Barkley for several seasons. Sanders has yet to deal with top tier speed as a feature back. As a result, his habit of bouncing runs to the boundary will be tested against top competition. Utilization in the passing game has not been on par with what Penn State had done with Barkley, will need close inspection to determine upside in this phase of his game.
