Sanchez and Barkley both lack elite arm strength, but Sanchez is a little bit better of an athlete. On the flip side, the mental aspect in terms of reading coverage, handling the blitz and getting the ball out on time comes more naturally to Barkley. And like the Jets with Sanchez, the team that drafts Barkley will have to be smart about how it uses him, given his lack of top-shelf physical tools. -- Todd McShay
