Young has a number of 'technical' problems with his throwing motion: the comparable in the NFL at the moment is Michael Vick....but Vick is a smaller player who has a huge problem completing passes: apart from height there is the accuracy issue. That is something that Young doesn't have, he has height and accuracy, even if his current throwing motion means in the NFL he will get picked of easily...given the right tuition he will be able to take the step up to the next level. He does, however, have the Vick problem of always running in the tight spot...a Superbowl QB won't scramble for 8 yards after option 1 and 2 are closed down by the defence...he'll go to option 3 and make a 30 yard play.
The Quarterback is the facilitator of plays, and not normally the person who 'makes' the plays. A great quarterback makes players around him play great...that is something we can't say of Vince Young yet...he is a great player, but does he make others play great with him? (by the way our 'great quarterback' is Xabi...has zero speed compared to some others, but can get himself out of trouble in a tight spot, and his delivery is freakish. The Joe Montana of Liverpool. How much of a better side are we with him in the team? Galaxies better. ) Vince makes all the plays, but who else in the Texan offence could you say he 'makes' play better then what they are? One man highlight reels do not win Superbowls as rule. The last QB's of Vince Young's style to win a SB is probably his namesake at the 49ers, and a player around the same time who's last name is Elway.
I think Young will go in the draft, and I think his home town of Houston will take him at number one; but whatever happens, and whether he goes this year or next, he'll take a hell of a lot of work to get up to NFL standard. Vince Young has the athletic ability of a triple superbowl winning player....the problem is is that that ability has let him get through the college ranks, including today's Rose Bowl, without the technical mechanics to make it in the NFL as a quarterback. Whoever drafts him will have to file him away as a project player until he can learn to throw properly, and not start running as soon as he gets in trouble. If they can teach him that, the sky is the limit.
