Miles Sanders entered the NFL as a talented running back with question marks about his ability to make big plays in the passing game. The Eagles second-round pick has taken off after a slow start to his career and he’s now the Birds big-play artist.

Sanders has amassed 336 rushing yards, 305 receiving yards and 314 kick return yards, making him the fourth player in NFL history with 300 yards rushing, receiving and kick returning in his first nine career games per Reuben Frank.

According to Inside Edge, Sanders 11.3 yards per target currently leads all NFL running backs.
