Trent Richardson is rated as the best running back in the draft by a long shot. He has been projected to go as high as fourth overall to the Cleveland Browns and should easily be a top 10 pick.
However, a number of teams drafting ahead of the Jets do not have needs at running back, so there is a chance that if a few teams pass on Richardson early, he could begin to fall.
If that's the case, the Jets could either wait to see if he drops to 16 or package some of their 10 picks to move up and nab him.
A Jets backfield that features Richardson, Shonn Greene, John Connor and yes, Tim Tebow would take a tremendous amount of pressure off Sanchez and hopefully have a snowball effect of positivity for the whole offense.
Teams would have to respect the Jets running game so much that they would have to commit extra defenders to stopping the run, thus meaning fewer players blitzing or confusing Sanchez in the secondary.
A dominant running game would also help Sanchez's primary targets on passing routes get open more often and allow him to find the rhythm he needs to thrive.
Most Jets fans would be quite happy if they landed the top running back in the draft, and Sanchez would be at the top of that list.
