Bad Leinart picture--they used a pick with a knee brace in it.

What is the status of Ferguson's health? Anyone know?

Seems like another nation sports writer is huge on Young. Taking him would be sweet but if we do decide to trade down, grabbing AJ Hawk with our first pick and then the tackle out of Auburn with our second pick sounds like the way to go to me!

McNeill would be absolutely terrible in Kubiak's scheme...The guy simply can't move...He's big and is a good run-blocker, so he'll make a good RT for someone, just not us...

Staying on topic, if Stewart Mandel says it, it must be true...That guy is one of the biggest draft gurus on the planet...

Not sure on his heath status but I didnt realize that he was so undersized. At 6'5'', 289 lbs he is going to look like a tooth pick next to some of those befensive linemen he could be facing.

I was also taking a look at Mario Williams, who some people have said could be the next Peppers. He seems more of a run stopping DE at 6'5'' 290 lbs than a finness pass rusher.

The more I see these different prospects the more I'm liking AJ Hawk.

I don't really trust those 40 times though...Reggie McNeal ran in the 4.2s at A&M's pro day last year and he is listed at 4.35...AJ Hawk ran a 4.45 at OSu's pro day and is listed at 4.52...Vernon Davis ran a 4.41 at Maryland and is listed at 4.49...

Regardless of this, I'm not too concerned with the 40 times of O-Linemen...I'm more concerned with agility, quickness, and explosion off the snap...From what I've seen McNeill does not possess these attributes...

Lendale White over Deangelo Williams? Come on. Williams was a workhorse back for the past 2 years at Memphis and put up close to 2,000 yards in both of them, while White actually had less carries than Bush did this year.

What's the point of this thread, anyways? I could dig around and find a slew of other 'big boards' that have Leinart and Bush over Young, but what's the point of doing that other than engaging in some childish fanboy debate over who's better?

Its an SI article. Not just a random draft website, that updates every few weeks.

Stewart Mandel was one of the first writers outside of Austin who got big on the Horns early, when everybody else was screaming USC. So when the Horns won, he has been (appropriately) leverage to throw accolades on the team/QB he favored. This isn't a bandwagon he has jumped on. And I only saw Young and Huff on there. If he was a real Horn lover this year, he could have put a lot more names on that list.

I think that many of UT's seniors will be drafted in the first or second round. This is a natural reaction to being the winning team in the National Championship. Whether it is inflated or not is another thread, but look back a couple of years to when OSU won the championship. A lot of Buckeyes went Pro that year.

I agree with Mandel's take on him:

"To anyone still trying to find fault with Young's unconventional style: Give it up, already. Young is a better passer than Michael Vick and, while Vick might be a tad faster, Young is a "smart" fast -- he's dangerous but not reckless. He's also the most endearing leader I've ever covered -- you could tell the entire Texas team marched to Young's beat. The only thing that would preclude Young's NFL stardom is a reactionary coach who tries to mold him into something he isn't."

If you draft VY, let Vince be Vince. Maybe a John Elway on steroids type.

I heard that VY once threw the ball toward the endzone, blow his own hole in the line, sprinted down field ahead of the ball,hurdling tacklers along the way and leaped into the air catching the ball just as time expired. Is it true? Is it true he once ate lightning and crapped thunder? What a fine human and supurb American.
