Default Young thinks he could still end up in Houston

LINK

HOUSTON (AP) - Vince Young isn't daunted by recent speculation that the Houston Texans will use the No. 1 pick in the draft on Reggie Bush.
The former Texas quarterback said Friday he still thinks his hometown team is open to drafting him.

"That's why I believe that I came here today," Young said. "You never know what is going on. A lot of people say Reggie is going to be here, but you never know."

Young worked out for Texans officials, toured the facilities and met with coaches and some players Friday. Bush met with the Texans on Thursday.

New coach Gary Kubiak and owner Bob McNair were among more than 100 NFL scouts, coaches and executives who also watched Young work out in Austin last month.

Young said Friday's workout consisted mostly of him throwing to a bevy of different receivers.

"Coach Kub (Kubiak) had some rapid fire, trying to keep me moving around, trying to see whether I'd get tired and things like that," he said. "I'm glad I've been continuing working out and staying in shape and throwing the ball."

Young also has visits to Miami, Minnesota, Cleveland and another visit to Tennessee, the owner of the third pick, in upcoming days.

Agent Major Adams said his client hasn't been worn down by all of his visits and recent travel.

"He knows the nature of the business, and he believes that teams want to know who he is," Adams said.

Young's draft stock skyrocketed after his performance in the Rose Bowl, where he accounted for 467 yards in a 41-38 win over USC and Bush for the national championship. Young announced four days later he was skipping his senior season to turn pro, and many Texans fans began clamoring for Houston to choose Young.

The Texans extended quarterback David Carr's contract for three years in February, making the possibility of Houston drafting Young look less likely.

Young would love to play for the Texans, but said that if they don't choose him it will simply motivate him to succeed wherever he goes.

"I will always love my hometown, and I will always have respect for my team," Young said. "But if it doesn't work out I'll still love my hometown, but when I come home, I'm going to play.

Part of it has be the Texans playing one against he other, VY and RB. It seems RB is the pick as of right now, but by bringing in VY it tells RB's people that if they get crazy in their contract request then maybe we would take VY. What Orlando Pace did to us, we are doing to the top draft pick.

If the Texans didn't have the first pick in the draft he wouldn't even be included in the battle to be the first pick (not that it's much of a battle even here anymore). It's either we pick him at 1 or he will fall down into the 6-10 range.

He's going #3...he's been destined for #3 since he declared.

We will face him twice a year. It will become a rivalry and a lot of "I told you so's"...it will be good for VY...it will be good for Bush...it will be good for both teams...it will be good for football. Heck, we might even get a Monday night game out of it in a couple of years...

If the Titans take Leinart, it could be a nice rivalry as well between former teammates.

Did you play against Reggie too? Because if not, then you have no frame of reference of who is better.

What the Texans need is some of these guys who are overboard with VY to buy the Jets or the Titans . These guys would want Vince so bad we could get a great deal maybe two 1st and two 2nd round picks for the # 1 pick .
