Default Buchsbaum on Vick

I was doing my usual NFL stroll around the net and ran across this page from pfw. Pretty good stuff.
Quote:
Beamer: Vick needs to improve
Virginia Tech QB Michael Vick needs to improve before making the jump to the NFL, Hokies head coach Frank Beamer said Tuesday. But itís unknown when Vick will make that jump.

"I donít want to speak for Michael, but I think the decision is going to mean more than just pure dollars," Beamer said. "I think in our conversation, he understands that he needs to continue to improve as a quarterback before heís ready to use his talents at the next level."

Rumors have circulated for months that Vick, a redshirt sophomore, is leaning toward leaving No. 2 Virginia Tech after the season to enter the 2001 NFL draft. Vick was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy last season.

"I donít believe that. I absolutely donít believe that," Beamer said of the rumors. "I think you can speculate, it makes great writing Ö but I donít think they know what Michael Vick is thinking at all."

PFW: Do you agree with Beamer?

Buchsbaum: Totally. His mechanics are off. He hasnít seen enough defenses yet. He relies too much on his athletic ability for the NFL. Heís way too reckless with his body, and thereís no way his body is going to last a full NFL season playing the way he plays. Heís gotta learn to play more with his head and less with his legs, and heís just a sophomore. He hasnít played enough football.

PFW: If he were to come out, where would he go?

Buchsbaum: I donít know. He could go in the top of the draft if someone feels that his potential is so great. But he could also end up going at the top of the draft and never realize his potential. I feel the longer he stays in college, the greater chance he has of realizing his full potential.

PFW: So more than making a financial mistake, Vick could make a career mistake by coming out early.

Buchsbaum: Exactly. What Iím saying is, heíll get a lot of up-front money if he comes out. But is he willing to risk all that up-front money for the possibility of sacrificing his career or having a phenomenal Hall of Fame-type career?
