Akili Smith 2?

Mark Sanchez, a Junior QB from USC declared for the draft today. Sanchez reminds me of another junior, who also started every game at QB for one full-season in the PAC-10 and had success, his name is Akili Smith. Smith was picked at the #3 slot in the draft by the Bengals, weird because people are already projecting Sanchez to be picked in the #3 slot by the Chiefs. Lets compare their numbers:

Mark Sanchez:
241 of 366 (68%) for 3,207 yards, 34 TD's and 10 INT's.

Akili Smith
215 of 371 (58%) for 3,763 yards, 32 TD's and 8 INT's.

Lets hope that his college career doesn't resemble Smith's.
