Woodland Hills RB Miles Sanders Drafted By Eagles in 2nd Round

Published

on

Former Woodland Hills running back Miles Sanders was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 53rd pick in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Friday.

After his junior season at Penn State, Sanders had a difficult decision to make and chose to leave for the NFL after just one year as a starter with the Lions.

In 2018, Sanders ran for 1,274 yards on 220 carries and scored nine touchdowns — all career highs. He spent his first two seasons backing up future No. 1 overall pick Saquon Barkley.

Sanders (5-foot-11, 211 pounds) ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine in Indianapolis and was the second running back taken in the draft, behind Alabama’s Josh Jacobs (1-24, Oakland).

He was the first player from Penn State taken in the draft. The Nittany Lions expect several players to be drafted.
