Watching the Rose Bowl with my wife this year, she asked me where I thought Vince Young would be drafted. Until she asked, I honestly had never even thought about him becoming a pro. His throwing motion is so bizarre that I just can't imagine him being an NFL quarterback. And yet, as I watched him make the Michigan defense look like a high school team, I realized that he's just too good an athlete not to find a spot somewhere on an NFL roster.
According to this article, most scouts think his pro prospects are quite good, as long as he's willing to play a position other than quarterback. I think he should root very hard for Matt Jones to have success as a receiver -- if it works for Jones, every team will think big, athletic quarterbacks have a future in the NFL.
