    This is from Scout.com's Texan Blitz... um, VY at running back.

    "But with Carr being granted a contract extension, it is unlikely that Young would be drafted primarily for his skills at the quarterback position. It could be that adding Young to the roster as an alternate RB behind Domanick Davis would give the offense some certain depth with his ability to throw the ball accurately."

    I can see it now, flea-flickers and reverse passes, end arounds, fades in the end zone. We could play him at safety too. Hire Randall Cunningham to be a punting coach. Bring back the iron man days.

    He could be a QB/RB/WR/PR/KR/S maybe he could we could make him a player coach type guy. too bad we got Kubiak already.

    Where does this guy come up with us drafting VY to back up DD, thats gotta be some kind of joke.

    Maybe he can play some OL and DE and fill all of our holes. We can do a reverse Ricky Williams deal and just give all of our picks away so no one will try to tempt us to trade up.

    This has to be a joke.

    VY would get killed out there. His upright running style is a broken leg or busted knee waiting to happen.

    wow funny thing is, i just was talking about this idea with my friends before i even know someone posted it somewehre. I said the same thing, trick plays up the wahzoo that would be fun to watch? all they talk about is how big he is and his speed and stuff and his toughness and not about his throwing skills, sometimes i think is IS a running back...

    and when did Vince say he wanted to be a RB? I don't see that working out for anyone.

    This post was meant with a little levity in mind. Let's not debate the merits of VY at RB unless we're really desperate to bash this guy or draft him for the sake of drafting him.

    When he signed with UT I was all for using VY as a WR his frshman year just to get him on the field. While I am not advocating doing that now, it is not completely out of the realm of possibility if Carr or another QB is the starter this year.
