There aren't many great quarterbacks available in this year's draft, but the two studs are making things very interesting in the days leading up to Saturday's NFL draft. Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez both might wind up in the top three picks, and it might take a blockbuster deal to get Sanchez.

It's a good thing Sanchez ignored USC Coach Pete Carroll's advice and came out early, because he's added both star power and intrigue to this year's proceedings.

With so many teams looking to trade down and so many teams seemingly falling in love with Sanchez - including the draft's biggest wild card, Redskins Owner Dan Snyder, there could be some drama in the first hour of the proceedings.

Presumably, Stafford will go No. 1 to Detroit, though that hasn't been settled yet. And I wouldn't rule out the Rams looking hard at a quarterback at No. 2. The Chiefs pick third, and they reportedly want to move down, if possible. Seattle is fourth, and that's where Sanchez could land if no one trades up.

That could force a team to reach too early for the draft's third best quarterback, Kansas State junior Josh Freeman. Because after Freeman, there's a huge dropoff.

3 years after the fact Stafford proved himself the best of the two by nearly hitting the 5,000 yard mark this year, wouldn't that have been twice?
