As of right now it doesn't sound like it

Len 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.

Vince Young has a better shot at the Heisman next year than Brady Quinn. Quinn is good but overrated.

NCAA | Young leaning towards return to Texas
Wed, 4 Jan 2006 09:20:16 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports sources close to University of Texas junior QB Vince Young have confirmed that he is leaning towards returning for his senior season. One of the reasons he would return to Texas is that he might not be selected among the top five picks in the NFL lottery. However, Young has not decided against declaring himself for the draft, sources said.

Yeah, looks like Vince will stay. Probably a good decision. He has a very good shot at the Heisman, and being a top 5 draft pick next year.

And this is good news for Cutler fans. ;-D

Vernon Davis up to #7 in his new mock. The 49ers have much more pressing needs than TE.

I agree I wasnt a big fan of that pick at all. I like Davis but I don't think he's in the elite group where he should be top 10, especially to a team like SF who has a lot of needs. Overall a good mock though like always.
