Mark Sanchez and the rest of the Trojan draft hopefuls put on a show for the scouts today at USC's Pro Day. From what I've heard Sanchez had an amazing showing. He looked good with his footwork, drops, accuracy, and arm strength. He also showed some poise when the Lions' coaching staff hijacked the end of his workout and asked him to throw some more routes. Apparently he nailed all of those throws too. Most are saying his Pro Day was more impressive than Stafford's. Mike Mayock noted that, although Sanch doesn't have the arm strength of Stafford or Josh Freeman, his arm strength is comparable to Matt Ryan's. Mayock went on to say that he thinks Sanch is the safest pick of the 3 QBs, which is odd considering he has the least starting experience.
We'll see if this generates more buzz in the coming weeks, but it looks like the #1 QB race could, in the words of NBA Jam, be heating up.
Personally, I would rather have Sanch than Stafford. If for no other reason than the fact that I would get to keep using the nickname "Sanch."
