    Vince in college made his Oline look better than they were, I think you will see the same in the pros, maybe not to the extent you did in college but he does a great job of buying time by moving around in the pocket. He also uses his running ability to keep the defense honest, this means that the dline will need to maintain their lanes when rushing the passer. All this adds up to making the olines job much easier.

    I agree with all that RollTide said about Young needing a centre with stability. Its madness to say he needs a rookie centre.

    Not to rain on the parade, but Boclair said Young didn't make a good impression at all in the afternoon session:

    "...he looked every bit like a rookie. Some of his throws fluttered. Others were off-target. Some were dropped by the receivers when they were on target. And some never materialized due to mishandled snaps from center. ... His only two completions were to free agent running back Lamont Reid, and one of those was behind the line of scrimmage."

    In a way, I'm kind of glad to hear that, not wanting expectations to be too high after only one day on the field.

    Just a little lesson...dont believe everything ESPN spoon feeds the masses.

    They also was USC was the best college team ever.

    Now most of their experts are saying VY will take forever to develop, if ever.

    Typical of the media mentality "its not who you are but who they think you are" that matters.

    The Tennessean review wasn't a glowing either.

    So he looked like a rookie in the afternoon session. He is a rookie and he was probably given a lot more of the play book for the afternoon. He going to have great days and bad days in the next few months we should not get to excited about the good nor worried about the bad ones. We couldnt have a better coaching staff to work with a rookie qb. Hes going to be a great player in this league but will be inconsistent for a while it just goes with the territory.
