While the internet world is abuzz about Vince Young's workout this afternoon sources have told us the point of view in the scouting community is mixed and many are not happy.
Young's arm-strength was impressive, but no one though it would not be.
The problem was Jerry Rhome, who ran Young's workout, made sure it was very Vince Young friendly and sanitized the workout. Scouts walked away with almost as many questions as they came with since the workout was not based on the usual NFL routine run at the combine. The fact Young threw a very limited number of downfield passes had scouts miffed.
Factor in Young was working with a pair of slow receivers, one who was Idaho junior Daniel Smith who barely broke 4.65-seconds during his pro-day workout, and scouts are not convinced Young is worth a top seven pick.
As we stated earlier, Norm Chow of the Titans will work Young out tomorrow, bringing in his own receivers, the Houston Texans are scheduled to individually workout Young this weekend and the Jets will follow suit on Monday.
One player who received a lot of positive comments for his terrific workout was tight end David Thomas, who put on a pass catching clinic.
A little further south, Texas State held its' pro-day workout in San Marcos later in the afternoon.
Defensive tackle looked good Fred Evans impressed scouts. Weighing near 310-pounds, Evans ran his forty's in the 5.10 second range and turned in a 34.5-vertical jump.
UPDATE: 7:55 PM
Also there was:
Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks' coach Chris Palmer, Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins GM Randy Meuller, and Rick Neuheisel of the Baltimore Ravens.
UDPATE: 5:10 PM
Floyd Reese of the Tennessee Titans, Charlie Casserly and Gary Kubiak of the Houston Texans, Jim Haslett of the St. Louis Rams, Ted Thompson of the Green Bay Packers and Nick Saban of the Miami Dolphins were among the big names in attendance.
Defensive tackle Rodrique Wright ran the 20-yard shuttle, hoping to better his time from the Combines.
"I had a good time but felt I could do even better," Wright said. "It was the last drill we did (at the Combines) and I was a little drained."
He posted an unofficial 4.47 shuttle, besting the 4.54 he had in Indianapolis.
Vince Young notched a 33-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-8 broad jump.
Michael Huff ran his 20-yard shuttle in 3.96 and managed a 6.84 in the three-cone drill. He also participated in secondary drills and looked fluid working out at both safety and cornerback.
"With the positional drills at the combine and my Pro Day, people will be able to tell whether I can play corner or not," Huff said confidently.
UPDATE 3:50 EST
The report we received from the bubble at the Texas pro-day was Vince Young looked solid yet nothing special. His passing workout did not hurt his draft stock yet it did not move him into the top six picks. Jerry Rhome ran the workout.
Young worked out with a pair of slow receivers yet was late on his timing throws and really only threw one deep pass.
Tomorrow Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Norm Chow will workout Young individually with receivers from the Titans.
Cedric Griffin had an outstanding day and too many, looked better then Michael Huff. Offensive tackle Jonathan Scott improved from a poor bench press and was solid during position drills.
