Sanders is currently rated as the No. 17 overall prospect in the draft by Mel Kiper and the top ranked inside linebacker.
He totaled an incredible 103 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 5 pass deflections and 1 interceptions this past season for the Razorbacks. He has 136 tackles across his career, in case you’re wondering how much of a breakout year the junior had after transferring from Alabama.
They’ll remember him around Fayetteville for years to come.
