Missed it... he said the coaches he's talked to aren't concerned with the throwing motion. Didn't hear him field one question about Houston, it was all about Tennessee and Oakland actually. Said he came in at 6'5" 229. He is focusing on getting better and doing whatever it takes to win, but is going to keep playing like he always has. Said he did chalk talk with Oakland and St. Louis last night.

If McNair and Tennessee have a falling out, I don't see them taking VY. It's not that they'd take him to placate McNair, but they would have a continuity plan and the guy with the biggest upside in place. If that happens, I could see Young possibly slipping to Oakland. At #7 I see the Raiders taking BPA/ fixing a future need.

Not worth a new thread, but McClain has truly gone off his rocker with the VY man crush. He was just on 610 am saying VY looks as tall as 6' 9" McGrady. According to Gil Brandt, the tallest QB was Matt Leinart at 6' 4" 7/8ths. McClain also doesn't believe either VY or the NFL combine staff that VY weighs 227 lbs.

Evidently, McClain hasn't talked to a scout that has Leinart ranked ahead of Young.

Yeah, caught something like that--the people he is talking to have Young above Leinart and some with Cutler above Leinart as well. McClain has good contacts, but you have to wonder when they don't match anyone elses' contacts.

Yeah... I imagine nobody has Leinart with a higher ceiling than Young, except for Leinart who compared himself to Tom Brady today. However, Leinart seems like more of a "can't miss prospect" (even though there isn't such a thing). Undoubtedly, the majority of NFL personnel people are more comfortable with Leinart. Absent some Ryan Leaf or Ricky Williams hidden psychological issues, Leinart is a very predictable player. Young is the enigma, so much talent and drive, but so many questions (valid or not) about his handlers, background, experience, NFL game, etc.

I have seen bunches of draft sites compare Leinart to Brady. Makes sense from the stand point of isn't going to blow any single physical attribute at all away, but makes good decisions and wins. Is his ceiling as high as Young's--seems like the question is for what, athleticism?--not a chance in Hades. On the other hand, Aikman and Brady never won any athleticism awards but both won 3 SB's in 4 years--if that is a lower ceiling, I'd say it is high enough.

So how tall is Vince if he isn't even 6'4 7/8?

Been looking for it and haven't found it yet. Surprised me to see Leinart listed as tallest, tied with Fresno's Pineger.

He's going to have to get with Oliver Stone and make a movie about this national anti-Vince Young/anti-Longhorn conspiracy.

Some of the hating has been ridiculous, such as CBS Sportsline ranking Brett Basanez ahead of VY. The Cowherd diatribes, Merrill Hoge "insights", etc. As much love as he got and earned after the Rose Bowl he's gotten hate in the past month.

Young is tall and he plays tall, that's all I know about his height.

Absolutely. The only reason I made mention of his height was the absurdity of McClain comparing him to McGrady. I was also surprised Leinart was taller--looking at them, I thought Young was.
