USC’s Mark Sanchez was the hottest name in the 2009 class in the days before the draft, so it’s no surprise that the Jets traded two draft picks and three players to move up and select him.
While he came out as an underclassman and started a mere 16 games at the collegiate level, Sanchez could still open next season as the Jets’ No. 1 quarterback. In fact, coach Rex Ryan told the New York Post that Sanchez will in fact compete for the top spot with Kellen Clemens.
Even in a best-case scenario, however, I still don’t see Sanchez as a draftable player in seasonal fantasy leagues.
The Men in Green will run the ball a ton, and their lack of playmakers at wide receiver leaves Sanchez with few options in the pass attack.
Sanchez has more value in keeper and dynasty leagues.
