NFL draft: Sanchez to Seattle sentiment swelling

There’s a lot of buzz right now about USC’s Mark Sanchez going as high as No. 4 to Seattle in Saturday’s NFL draft.

(He could room with his old pal Steve Sarkisian! Imagine the sitcom-esque shenanigans!)

ESPN.com’s Todd McShay addressed that speculation and picked a few other potential landing spots for Sanchez in a conference call with reporters:

“He could come off the board as early as Seattle at No. 4. Of all the players in this year’s class, right now he seems to be the hottest moving up. Teams are realizing as they meet with him and are around him more that he just has an infectious attitude. He loves the game. He’s a gym rat. He has leadership skills, and I think that’s playing well with a lot of teams that are spending personal time with him.

“Seattle at No. 4 is a strong possibility. The next spot is Jacksonville at eight if they’re willing to trade out. I think the Jets are a possibility to trade up. Washington, you never know with Dan Snyder.  He’s met with him twice personally.

“If he gets past No. 8, I’d say San Francisco (at No. 10). Whether the 49ers take him or trade that pick, I don’t see Sanchez getting out of the top 10 picks.”
