from a vy hater:
know I shouldn't interject, but I will. I was flipping through ESPN a couple of Saturdays ago, and I happened upon some college football all-star competition. They had Young, Sinorce Moss, DeAngelo Williams, Chad Jackson, etc all sequestered down in Miami. And they were doing all these competition drills. So I plopped down and watched. Needless to say I caught the tail end of the program. I started watching during the "sure hands" drill. Sinorce Moss did well (I am proud to say), but Chad Jackson did phenomenal. That kid has some serious hands.
But anyway back to the point of my story. The main quarterback competition was next. It was some sort of mobile quarterback drill. The grand finale of sorts. But the drill started off with the quarterback having to toss the rock about 40 yards (at least) into a basket positioned near the edge of a sort of end zone. From there, the quarterbacks had to weave through some hanging bags with the football in hand. Obviously that drill was designed to see if the quarterback could hang onto the football with contact involved. After a couple agility drills, the quarterback had to fire a bullet pass at a target about 20 yards away on the move. Well I can remember two of Vince Young's competitor's. Drew Olson and Brodie Croyle. I don't remember the third competitor, but there was one. But what I do remember is that Vince was the only one of the four that lofted a perfect pass into that basket. Then he took off through the drills and at the end he fired a strike on that target. As I remember, he was the only one to do that as well.
What this made to clear to me is this: Vince Young might not be picked first, but if he isn't picked second...some NFL GM's need their heads examined. Now I know the NFL's collective braintrust has seen this performance. At least, if they are worth a damn they have. On the strength of that performance, it should be enough for VY to bypass the combine, if he chooses. I am sorry, but Young can throw every pass any other potential draftee can throw right now. And in about a year, he will be able to throw any pass better than Cutler, Croyle, Leinart, Olson, etc. The kid is the goods, and the upside is ridiculous. NFL front offices aren't that stupid.
