Let's just say I hope Rick is on the right track again this year because we have a lot of similar picks. By the way, look for my mock in the morning. I officially submitted it to the contest at 10pm central but still have to write out a bunch of analysis.
I dont see how that would be so surprising considering that 10 days ago, he wasnt a likely top 10 pick. I mean, seriously, what's changed?
- Matt Stafford is gone at #1 and Sanchez is the best QB available from #2 onward
- Many teams are being reported as high on Sanchez, unlike earlier, thus added attention in mocks
- Teams are willing to trade up for Sanchez
- Fantastic Pro Day, blowing away teams in interviews, big media blitz
Don't forget, there's probably a big lag time between the way WE understand the draft and what the GMs are thinking. Might be that the GMs have been high on Sanchez all along and we're just starting to hear about it. Could be the same way for Tyson Jackson.
