New York Jets

Round 1, Pick #17 overall

GM danelama





Details of the pick after the jump...

Port in a storm, or something more?

From GM danelama:  The Jets didnt think Mark would fall to them, but their happy he did.
Sanchez is probably the most intelligent QB in this years class. Playing out of USC's pro-style offense, Sanchez excelled at reading defenses and properly going through his progressions. Is always looking around the whole field, keeping his face mask square with the line of scrimmage. Good arm strength to make just about any throw. Put passes in good spots to receivers to make easy catches. Accurate passer when he's moving to either the left or the right. Has quick feet to get into position to make throws. Makes quick decisions and is a smart player. Team captain as a junior.

Commish's Thoughts:  Back to back Trojans was bound to happen somewhere in this draft.  I like the commish's reasoning behind the pick, and of the QBs available, I would say that Sanchez might have the most "game."  And #17 for a guy who would have been acceptable in the top 10?  Sounds like a great deal.  With the Cutler mess involving the Jets to some degree, as a possible destination, the Jets certainly have a number of options to choose from at the spot going forward.  Who knows, maybe this will be the Bronc's pick come Draft Day?



Denver Broncos are up next.  Chicago traded out of the spot in order to land Cutler, so it looks like waiting a day may have helped our draft to be the best it could be!  Draftivus is unstoppable, you hear me??  UNSTOPPABLE!!!

The deadline for this pick is NOON MST, April 3rd.  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
