    The only concern I have about Young is his arm strength. I've seen tons of highlights, but not one of them showed him firing a fastball into a tight spot. Every pass I've seen him throw has been a bit of a floater. And as we've seen with Billy Volek, those floaters lead to all sorts of trouble with short and mid-level passes....that extra air gives defenders an extra step or two to make a play on the ball, which leads to a lot more deflections and interceptions around the line of scrimmage. (In 2004, I believe Volek threw 11 INT's...more than half of those INT's happened less than 5 yards downfield, and I believe 3 or 4 or them were returned for TD's.)

    This is not to say that he can't make those throws...I simply haven't seen him do it. However, with all the VY highlights that are out there, you'd think that at least one of them would show him throwing some heat in between two defenders. And obviously, he's going to have to make that throw on a regular basis if he's going to be successful in the NFL.

    He has the potential to make those throws. He is raw though, that's what people wonder about, is how long will it take Young to learn these throws? Is he sharp enough to make these throws, while running a potentially complex offense? These are the big ? marks.

    Okay, so just judging by the highlights, as I haven't seen his full game;
    And based on the comments above....

    Mike Vick, anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

    I was able to see several TX games this year. Vince can do more than just run-but he is an excellent runn

    People love to forget that Vick wasn't even a great passer in college! Vince was.

    was anyone anywhere near his WRs?? any runningback given those kinds of lanes would be successful too, but I don't want my QB getting hit as much as a RB.
