NFL personell are somewhat split on how great Vince will be in the league, but one thing is for sure. If you draft Vince and he is even just a good, not even great QB, you guarantee yourself an enormous love affair for this team from the city of Houston. Right now this is not a done deal to say the least with the Texans creeping into punchlines on broadcasts. Houston is one of the greatest cities in the country but the fact is as a sports market we are largely front runners. This city rallied around Vince as a high schooler at Madison to a huge degree, with multiple spreads in the Chronicle etc.., and now of course as a Longhorn winning a national championship. After the display he put on in the Rose Bowl even a large part of non UT Texans are probably modest fans of the guy. Inner city Houston sees him as a demi god (as do I), and most Longhorn fans go further than that. The bottom line is that IF Vince carries over to the NFL we are talking about LUV YA (STEEL) BLUE all over again. If we trade down and get Hawk, Furgeson, etc.. we will still be a ways off from contention but will have seriously fading backing from the fans. And as a secondary sidenote. NFL QB's are about 5 times as valuable as NFL running backs and they last probably twice as long. From a risk reward perspective I think Vince is the obvious choice. If he pans out, he will be a better Mike Vick who energizes a franchise without a personality right now and will do so for 8 + years most likely. If Reggie pans out you have a difference maker at a less important position who won't last near as long and won't endear as many fans. If Casserly pulls off a trade to get Furgeson and a 105th rounder this city will go into absolute hibernation on this team The move is to take Vince and try to hit a homerun for this franchise. There is zero chance with his athletic ability he will be a complete bust, and barring that nobody will blame the Texans for taking a shot at the superstar hometown kid. If he goes somewhere else and flourishes you are looking at a disaster.
