Mark Sanchez is opening camp second on the depth chart.
It's an open competition at quarterback for the Jets, but Rex Ryan yesterday said that Kellen Clemens -- not No. 1 pick Mark Sanchez -- will begin training camp No. 1 on the depth chart.
"Clemens will be No. 1 and Sanchez will be two, but obviously we're going to give Sanchez a chance to be with the ones [starters] as well," Ryan said. "Obviously Mark is going to be given an opportunity to win this job."
The Jets aren't just going to hand Sanchez the starting job based on a few offseason practices. That would be crazy. He'll need to prove he's at least somewhat ready during camp and the preseason. With that said, he'll be the Week 1 starter unless he gets hurt or just falls flat on his face.
