Discussion in 'NFL Draft' started by ChitownTitan, Feb 25, 2006.
Young had every opportunity to show his athletic superiority over cutler, jacobs and all other QBs at the combine. He could have done it on the same stage on the same turf. After cutler, jacobs and croyle posted 4.8 type 40 times young could have popped eyeballs with a 4.45. But he didn't.
I think any fool can look at his game film and tell that he runs sub 4.5. He really had no incentive to go at it "on even terms" when he can just run at a fast track on his pro day. Let me ask you this... had he ran at the combine and came in at 4.7, would that change your opinion about his running ability ? I would still look at the game film and see that nobody tackles this guy one on one.
Peter Warrick couldn't be handled in college, then he ran a 4.6 and lost a lot of hype.
Peter Warrick was over hyped his entire college career.
Peter was always more about agility than straight line speed. Kinda ironic that his teammate, Laverneus Coles, turned out to be a better pro.
The whining over the combine thing is SOOOO old. Most top players DON'T participate in the combine anymore. Happens every year and guess what...will happen next year.
His agent actually got that one right.....wait and don't work out at the combine.....nothing to really gain. If he runs a 4.6 or better, shows agility and displays a strong arm....stronger than Leinart and close to Cutler....no one will remember the combine or the Wonderlic.....even Mr. Reese.
Running on a fast track?
2008 must think that you can fool nfl scouts and GMs. Like they can't tell a time was put up on a fast track or something. Of course according 2008 we can just look at film and tell he runs fast so maybe young need not get times at all then.
Young had a chance to put his 40 time right against almost all other top QBs. Only lienart didn't compete. Cutler, jacobs, whitehurst, croyle were all there but according to one poster "most" top prospects are not. What is more is that the combine turf is a real nfl field not a track. Real games are played there.
A short while ago aj hawk popped a 4.42 and a 4.45 on a pro day. Wow awesome right? Didn't help him a bit because his times were so much better than his combine time(4.57) it is assumed that something must not be right about them. If young runs a 4.45 at some pro day it will impress the scouts but a 4.45 at the combine would have carried more weight and that is FACT!
But hey i'm not vince young and i'm not his agent or family. I have no financial stake in this.
Speaking of the wonderlic...
Rolltide was right, again.
Based on several sources including the miami herald and the st louis post dispatch when a player scores poorly at the combine they will take the test again and the second test will "have more shapes than words".
Only one poster on this board mentioned reading comprehension as a possible reason some people are some groups may not score as well. I was right, again, of course.
