V. Young meets with Ravens' brass

OWINGS MILLS ' The Vince Young NFL tour made a stop Monday at the Baltimore Ravens' training complex, an upscale locale he's unlikely to visit again barring a trade.

The University of Texas star quarterback and a small entourage of representation and family met with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach Brian Billick and quarterbacks coach Rick Neuheisel.

Young is projected as one of the top 10 selections, and Baltimore currently holds the 13th overall pick of the first round. It's unlikely that Newsome would be willing to move up high enough to select Young, or that he will slide to the Ravens. Trading up might require Baltimore to give up next year's first-round draft pick and possibly a second-round draft pick, too.

"Vince had a very good meeting with the Ravens, very productive," said Major Adams, Young's agent. "He was very impressed with Ozzie and the coaches along with the Ravens' first-class facility."

Young is scheduled to work out Friday for his hometown Houston Texans, who hold the first overall selection, and will meet with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and Monday.

Although Young scored poorly on the Wonderlic intelligence and personnel exam, scouts are impressed with his size (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) and speed (4.57 over 40 yards) along with the athleticism, poise and skill he demonstrated in leading the Longhorns to a national title victory over USC in the Rose Bowl.

"Vince can't wait to find out which city he's going to be playing in," Adams said. "He's enjoying the process and getting to know these coaches and executives better. It's another opportunity to make a good impression."
