    I think right now Young thinks about Throwing before running. Sure he runs great, but from the games I have seen him in, he seems to go thru his progressions before running. Now, he may not go thru all of them or let the play develop enough, but that can be taught. I think right now he is more prepared to be a QB in the NFL than the last "running" QB, Michael Vick.

    Prag, I think that is a good opinion based on what I've read from scouts so far. But I also think there has been some misinformation on Young.

    As much as fans and teams complain about this, I wouldnt do it in their shoes either. They have nothing to gain from it. They are already slotted to be the 2nd and 3rd players off the board, and they cant improve their standing. The only thing they could do is hurt it.

    Jay Cutler will because he is trying to move up the draft board.

    That only holds true if teams do in fact rate both at the top. But taking Young as an example, nobody knows how much of an issue his mechanics are for a given team. And not working out at the combine is one less chance to prove to these teams that it's nothing to worry about.

    As I believe Pat Kirwan wrote, there's no reason not to compete in the combine unless you have something to hide. Especially this year where they're not guaranteed to be in the top 3 maybe not even top 10. Just look at what happened to Rodgers.

    Vigsted...

    Right now, Bush, Young and Leinhart are consensus top 3 picks. The only thing right now that they could do to drop out of the top 3 is to have a bad work out. This is not the first time top players haven't participated in the combine.

    BTW, is Bush participating?

    Really? So you know for a fact that those 3 players are the ones the top 3 teams are going to draft? No, it's a consenus among a number of "draftexperts" in the media and regular fans. But we have no idea how the individual clubs rate them. Hell Titans could have Bush lower than White if they feel he's too small and fragile. You just never know.

    Again...it isn't hard to grasp. The top 3 players in the draft have only 1 way to go. Down. It isn't like they won't be working out...they will hold private workouts and Pro Days at their school.

    You act like this is the first year ever than players have held out of the combine. It is more common than not that the top players draft.

    No, I've always felt that everyone should work out. And personally I question anyone who chooses not to. How many workplaces apart from the NFL allow you to refuse a job aptitude test and insist on taking it at "home" where you're more comfortable?

    I mean I understand why Young won't throw, because I do question his ability. I just feel the NFL should make it a requirement to participate in the Combine that you do all the drills. As it is now Bush, Leinart and Young are just freeloading, getting interviews for free, whereas players like Brick, Hawk, etc. have to work for it. But that's just my opinion.
