Mark Sanchez is a 6'2" 227 pound quarterback out of the University of Southern Cal. He surprised his coach Pete Carroll when he decided to declare for the draft after just one season. It is hard to look at his stats and find something negative in them. 

This year he was first-team All-Pac-10 when he completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 3,207 yards,34 touchdowns to only 10 interceptions.He also help USC beat Penn State in the Rose Bowl.

The main reason he will be in the first round is because the lack of quarterback talent in this year's draft. I would be hesitant if I was a team looking for a quarterback because he has less than a full NFL season of experience. Mark Sanchez at the NFL Scouting Combine had a arm span of 33 1/2 inches and a hand span 10 1/2 inches. 

His positives are He reads defenses very good and rarely throws into coverage. He takes what the defense gives him. He Recognizes the blitz well for a player of his experience. He has a great setup and is very smooth with the ball.

He doesn't lack the arm strength for an average NFL quarterback. He distributes the ball all over the field. He can get away from the pass rush and gain a couple of yards due to the rush.

He has rare accuracy when he is rolling out. He squares his shoulders when he throws which makes him accurate and consistent. He was a team captain this year for the Trojans. He has a great work ethic.
