Remember shortly before the 2006 draft when everyone assumed that the Titans would take Matt Leinart because, well, because the entire coaching staff was made up of ex-USC guys who all wanted to take Matt Leinart? Instead, then general manager Floyd Reese opted for Vince Young on the strength of the Texas star's upside. Well, Reese is gone now, and Jeff Fisher and company can't feel great about their situation after Young publicly revealed that he considered retirement after his rookie season. On the one hand, it's nice to see a player willing to be open about the pressures of adjusting to NFL life. On the other hand, Young has already gotten one offensive coordinator fired, and you have to think that his level of commitment to the pro game will be a source of concern from here on out.

The Bucs' rookie made a lot of big plays last year, but he'll need to cut down on turnovers and sloppy throws to live up to his draft status.
