    I would, I really think Vince Young is going to be a GreatQb.If hes sliding like there saying he is, and you can say move down to the 8th or 9th pick and get him I would.

    Then I would have him learn under bledsoe for his Rookie Season and take over in his second.

    The only way you take him is if he slides down to the spot we are already in.

    We do not need to trade up right now.

    Acutally we are better off trading down at this point IMO.

    No way. Young will slide and be taken after Cutler. Bank on it.

    Nope. Not even the least bit interested at this point. Finish building the Super Bowl contender.

    Especially considering Young's relationship with Steve McNair and the fact that McNair is on the downslope of his career.

    If I'm Jerry, no. He hasn't played minor league baseball.

    haha, I dont know but i left so impressed by young in the college title game. I havent seen someone so cool and calm under pressure like that since Montana. I think there's something very special about him, when he gets on the field you can see how confident he is, that no matter what his team is going to win and hes going to lead them there.


    I d love to have him,even if he sits under bledsoe for two seasons id love to get him.

    Depending on the cost, I would be for it. Unlike most I think he is gonna be good to great at the next level, something in the Randall Cunningham mold. Having our next franchise QB in the folds trumps whatever 3 players we would be able to get in the first two rounds of this and the following year's draft, giving our current talent level, and how it should affect the position in which we draft in the coming years. IMO thats worth the risk.

    I think it depends on where he is falling. If he gets past Arizona (Which he won't, but for the sake of argument, let's pretend), he may well fall into the Cowboys' lap. That's tremendous value at the 18 slot. They could draft him and groom him for a couple years, for when after BP leaves (Think Pennington in NY) Likewise, what are trade-down possibilities? Whether you are interested in VY or not, that's a great position to be in.

    Now, would you trade into the top 10 to get him? I don't think so. That's giving up a lot of draft picks for a player with some legitimite question marks. VY has potential, but potential and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee.

    If he falls into that ~15 range, do you move up a few slots? This is where you get into that gray area, imo. What are the teams current needs? Does the 18 slot need to yield an immediate starter? Do you have faith in Henson (I don't)?

    Ok, I've kept quiet on this subject so far but I feel compelled to state my position. I'm a UT alum. I love the Horns and I love Vince and I'll never forget how he single-handedly willed us to a national championship. He'll always be one of my favorite college players, but...

    I hope the Cowboys do not draft him. I do not think he is a good fit for this team at this time. I am skeptical of his ability to read defenses at the pro level. Vince is a freelancer and while he was a man among boys at the college level, this will not be so in the NFL. He may develop into a great pro quarterback but I do believe it will take some time and time is a luxury that the Cowboys do not have.

    The Cowboys window is open now. I truly believe we are a player or two away from winning a Superbowl and I think Bledsoe will be the quarterback when it happens. The Cowboys need an OLB, a FS, and an offensive lineman or two. This year's and possibly next year's high draft picks must be used on players that can contribute immediately. Vince Young is not such a player.

    If we draft a Longhorn I hope it's Huff.

    I agree too, but if Vince Young comes down to 13-14 pick, then Jerry should be tempted. He would be good one to pick up at that point, and sit him for 1-2 years.

    As much of Henson homer I am, I really think Young can be something special, if his machanics can be tweaked a bit to make him more efficient in throwing long ball bit more accurately and also obviously taking the ball under center.

    He looks like a 2-3 year project to me to get his full game even to the point where some guys will be after their first year. If we're fully convinced that Romo or Henson are not the answer, then we don't have time to wait on Young. Bledsoe as two more years tops, maybe not even if Bill retires.

    I'll pass. If he falls to us at 18 I'd trade down.

    I don't think Huff will be there, but let's imagine he is still there when we get to 18. Do you take him? Even with all of the picks we've used on defense, I just might.
