If vince young decides to come out this year, I say we look to draft him in the mid-first and convert him to wide reciever. I don't think anybody would want to gamble on his throwing motion, but will want his athletisism somewhere else, I can already picture Aj and young on opposite sides....I can dream cant I

Vince Young is not going to be a mid-first round pick. He's going to be a top ten pick and possibly a top 3 pick this year or next year. And I'd prefer him at QB.

Vince Young will be a All Pro QB. He does not want to move to WR and wont because he is a heck of a QB. He has a gun for an arm but, unlike Carr, knows when to put the touch on the ball. He will put the ball where the WR can catch it and only the WR. He stays in the pocket until the last possible second before scrambling for 20 yards.

And he has already said that he is staying for his senior year athough that could change if he wins the Heisman and/or a National Championship. It would be intresting if playing close to home in the NFL has any impact on his decision.

Bob Griese was stating that Young is no longer challenged by College defenses and will need to get into the NFL before anyone is going to be able to stop him on a regular basis. He will be a QB in the NFL, a top 5 pick and I think he will be a superstar.

The throwing motion may not work for you but it sure as hell works for him (65.6% this season). Just cause the throwing motion doesnt look good doesnt mean that it doesnt work...

I wonder if the ttech secondary was on to him when they picks him twice, I was just saying who would gamble on his throwing motion, I would go for his athleticism which I already know is good and convert im to WR, it would be a heck of an offfense to have him and Aj line up, they couold be two possesion WR's that make things happen with their feet, and imagine the Aj reverse we run with young having the option to run or throw to Aj.

I didnt see the Tech game (I was taking the ACT and getting ready for Homecoming) so I dont know what the INTs were like. But on a good amount of the INTs this year, the problem has not been Young but WRs not fighting for the ball. I remember one INT against Rice (I think) where Young threw the ball to Sweed but the Rice CB wanted the ball more than Sweed did...

They were dumb interceptions and he got lucky on a few more. I still think that there is not enough confidence yet in his passing. One more year in college he should be fine.

That would be pointless. Vince Young is slower than Gaffney or any other receiver on our team and I would be willing to bet he can't catch as well either, so other than him being 6'5" he would be inferior in any way to any WR currently on our team.

Vince Young has stated he is not coming out this year so it won't matter anyways, but as a few people have mentioned if he did come out he would be picked early first round, likely in the top 5. Vince will want to stay at QB since that has been his position and he has stated that he does not want to switch positions at all. Drafting him at QB would be even more pointless as he is not much, if any, faster than David Carr and has a noodle of an arm compared to Carr.

Vince young comes out this year if he has any smarts, his feet are what set him apart, if he were immobile would he be good, i think not, will he do good passingw/o j.scott? no. If he doesn't come out this year, he can only take so many hits running, risk getting injured and ruining your chances of getting drafted early would not be a wise choice, come out while your on top YV. Remember Jason White. SO what if you rthe third taken this year (Leinart, Jocobs)

How can he be slow, have ya seen him outrun defenders. As good an athlete as he is, he can get the catching thing down. I remember seing his highlight reel from highschool, mythodical stuff.

Jason White is a completely different story because he had zero chance of ever becoming a pro quarterback.

Vince should stay because his passing is not at a pro level yet. He needs one more season to improve it some more. He has improved but he is still making stupid mistakes that would be turnovers in the NFL.

Okay, so let me ask this:

If the Texans end up with pick #1 do you think Young will change his mind and go pro National Championship or no national championship and Heisman or no Heisman?

and

Do you think the Texans should take him with the #1 pick even though as we all know it is appearant we need Oline help?

Vince Young would be a terrible pick for the Texans. We have a QB in David Carr and Young will take 3years before he can even be close to his talent. Vince will be a decent QB in the league about the same area as Randal Cunningham with maybe less of an arm.

Thumbs down

I'm sensing alot of hate and resentment for Vince Young on this board.

It's like some people are just hoping this dude will fail, and they even make baseless assessments and assumptions of this man's game just to further validate their skewed views.

I'm wondering have any of these people even sat and watched this dude play at all this year?

Cause I don't see how anyone would think this guy would not be a successful Qb in the NFL.

Some people are so quick to point out that he threw 2 ints against T Tech to validate their little biased view towards Young, but at the same time they turn around and completely avoid the fact that he came back and threw 2 TD's against Tech in that game.

He threw 2 int's against Tech, so what, stuff like that is gonna happen to any Qb, even the best of them. Hell didn't the Houston Texans pick off Peyton Manning last Sunday? From my understanding, the Texans are the worst team in the league both offensively and especially defensively and they still managed to pick of the one of the best Qbs in the league.

People need to stop reaching on arguments to discredit Young's game.

It depends on how much playing for his hometown means to him

and

Yes because Young is a gamebreaker
