Sources tell SI.com's Tony Pauline that Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu already plans to enter the 2012 NFL draft.

A lot can change between now and next April (i.e. injury), but for now it sounds like Sanu's tentative expectation is to play out his third-year junior season and go pro as an underclassman. A physical possession wideout at 6-foot-2, 218, Sanu managed just 44 catches for 418 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore. Pauline rates Sanu as a second- to third-round prospect, though other projections have him going as soon as the latter portion of round one.
