As of right now it doesn't sound like itLen Pasquarelli of ESPN.com is reporting that Texas junior QB Vince Young is leaning towards dodging the NFL Draft and returning to school for his senior campaign. Young and his family feel that there might not be enough teams in the top 5-10 overall picks who are ready to invest in a top signal caller at this point and hat he would ever be able to pass Matt Leinart on draft boards. Young has not completely decided against going into the '06 draft, and could revisit the notion, sources said.
I am not saying Vince Young is bad or anything, but if he stays in school for another year, does he really think he will pass Brady Quinn on draft boards? This year or next, I can't imagine he will be any higher than the second QB taken, and this draft has a big drop-off at the QB position after the top 2 or 3, so I think he should just go pro now, especially if Texas wins tonight.
It seems like this may be the height of his college career. Quinn qill be the Heisman favorite and the most marketed player next year. The Texas defense will lose 13 seniors this year, and some of the juniors may leave early, so the defense will be weaker, limiting their national title hopes.
So if you combine these two factors (and the ever-present risk of injury), all signs point to the right decision being to go for the money now and enter the draft.
