Sanchez’s Jersey is #1, Is He?

Posted by Noah Roush on May 5, 2009

According to the NFL and Reebok, Mark Sanchez’s #6 Jersey is their number one seller.  Is this supposed to be an indication of player talent?

 Sanchez, who was drafted sixth overall by the Jets, was originally not expected to declare for the NFL Draft.  When he did, he surprised everyone, including his former USC head coach Pete Carroll.

Though Sanchez had little college experience, he had exceptional arm strength and accuracy throughout college.  He was still expected to be a project for whichever NFL team drafted him.  

Now, Sanchez is the projected starter for the Jets and his jersey is the #1 seller in the country. The question is, can he live up to his jersey’s profit?
