    My Father who's a pro scout for the Broncos, just called me and told me that VY workout went well...He said he would take him in the Top 5. It was confirmed that he ran a 4.57, but he said that considering his size thats not dissapointing.....He also said he is more accurate than everyone thinks......

    That said, thanks for the info. Any details on how he did throwing the ball?

    He said he did well in the Passing drills, He also stated that he was more impressed with his throwing than Michael Vick...

    That's good. Although it's not saying much. :D

    Sean Salisbury is on 103.3 talking about it right now, and he said he was incredibly impressed with Young. He said Young was surprisingly accurate and his arm was very strong... And he says Young doesn't even know what he's doing yet. Said some of his throws didn't come off his hand the way he wanted, but the ball still got to the right spot just the same.

    SS says he's a top-5 pick for sure. He's even waffling on if he'd take Leinart ahead of him, and he's a huge USC and Leinart homer.

    I'm 47 and I still throw better than Michael Vick (I really do) so that's not saying much.

    Young's deep passes are the ones he is weak at. I'd be interested to know how he did specifically on those throws.

    more people will come more impressed with him as they watch him instead of having those false doubts that he'll be like Mike Vick when they are totally different players.

    yup.

    Young is accurate and does what needs to be done to make plays successful.
    The fact he can do that on the run is what will make him the best QB of this class and possibly in the league for a years in his prime.

    Young is going to need a year or so to work on basic mechanics but he can win games now with his overall athleticism and play-making.

    Vick has a very strong arm but he is in the wrong offense and is small for the position.

    I agree completely. My concern would be the change from the spread offense to a conventional offense. Regardless, I see VY being a a superstar in this league.

    Also, Vick is TOO small for his type of game. If VY was too play the same type of game as Vick, at least VY has the size for it.

    Salisbury said out of 54 throws, 5 hit the ground... 2 overthrows and 3 drops...

    He said his throws were incredibly accurate...

    You have it backward. Young's strength is the deep throw. When he's been inaccurate passing, it's usually been short stuff.

    So Young will follow Uncle Rico as the next QB prospect with poor mechanics but excellent accuracy...

    but Young doesn't have the arm strength to throw it over the mountain...

    He is usually tough on the college players....So I was surprised when he said VY did real well.....Last year he was real high on The Rookie RB for the Bucs Williams so I drafted him for my fantasy league team and it paid off...LOL
