West Coast Ideal


When I look at Sanchez, the things that jump out as positives seem to be decision-making, being able to get the ball out quickly, being able to get outside the pocket and still make plays -- to keep his eyes focused on finding an open receiver.

I think he's good at going to the second receiver. As far as the things he needs to work on, I don't think his deep accuracy is very good. I don't think he's as much of a pinpoint passer as has been portrayed.

The ball is behind and the receiver have to work for it. The other thing with him is that to me, he's a system guy. If he can be in a system -- like what's perceived to be the West Coast system -- where the ball gets out quick in a shorter area, he'll do well. But if you put him in a system where he has to use his arm to get the ball downfield, I don't think he'll be quite as good.

I also think that he is a guy who's pretty good in a clean pocket. But if it's a cluttered pocket, he tends to get out of there a little quicker than he should. If he's in the right system, I think his strengths will play out well.
