Mark Sanchez will probably enter the NFL draft; I mean, c'mon ... wouldn't you?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
It appears USC quarterback Mark Sanchez is headed to the NFL, according to the LA Times. We'll know for sure later this morning after Sanchez appears at a scheduled news conference.

The last order of business for Sanchez before announcing his big decision was a meeting with Trojans coach Pete Carroll. While the NFL's millions are certainly a huge magnet, Carroll was able to convince Matt Leinart to stick around for another season in 2005, thus adding a tinge of drama to today's presser.

Eligible players have until the end of business today to submit the necessary paperwork to enter the NFL draft.

With other marquee QBs Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford opting to stick it out another year on their respective campuses, it's hard to believe that Sanchez, projected by many as a first-round pick, won't enter the draft.
