    First Sanchez Minicamp Info

    Sanchez makes Jets debut at rookie camp
    May 1, 2009

    Coming to you live from the Jets' fieldhouse in Florham Park, N.J., where Mark Sanchez is making his Jets debut.

    A quick evaluation: he throws a nice, tight spiral with noticeable zip. He can complete the 15 to 20-yard sideline routes with no problem. Still haven't seen him throw a long ball, but he definitely has a fastball on the intermediate routes. His ball placement is slightly off, but that could be due to rust. Accuracy is supposed to be his strong suit.

    He just hit a deep seam to a wide-open Marcus Henry, a 64-yard touchdown. The other thing that jumps out about Sanchez is his size. He measured at 6-2 1/8, and that might have been on his tippy toes. There's no pass rush here, so there's no way to tell if he'll have a problem getting it over the rush.

    What kind of scrub secondary is allowing Marcus Henry to get wide open?

    There are no defensive starters there, so, do the math.

    The "12 veterans" that are there are mostly practice squad guys from last year.

    it's not just the height that's important, it's the release point. sanchez throws over his head, so his release point may be that of a typical qb who is 6'3" or so. clemens throws lower, which is why he had so many passes batted down at the LOS.

    Favre didn't seem to have a problem for 18 years nor did Steve Young, Montana, Brees....

    UT, thanks for the report.

    But people really need to let this 6'2" (or 6'1")is too short thing go....Edit: I just saw that this was Cimini's report. Explains his obsession with his height.

    And finding throwing lanes i.e. pocket movement, footwork

    I was under the impression that combine measurements are pretty strict and accurate.

    In addition to a high release point, with Sanchez' vision, mobility, and ability to throw on the run, I think he will always be able to find passing lanes. He did not have a problem with batted balls in college.

    That's the single most overrated measurable of a QB.


    Good call C Mart. I like your examples but if you really want to drive that point home, you need to look no further than Doug Flutie. The guy was 5'10 for pete's sake.
