Report: Longhorns' Young to declare for news services

Longhorns junior quarterback Vince Young will declare for the NFL draft at a 4 p.m. news conference Sunday, his godmother told The Dallas Morning News.

Young and his mother, Felicia, met with Young's pastor, Samuel H. Smith, in Houston on Sunday before making the decision, Yolande Levine told The Morning News

According to Levine, Young was on his way to Austin to tell Texas coach Mack Brown his decision to go pro.

"After that performance in the Rose Bowl, I think we all kind of knew which way he was going to go," Levine told the newspaper.

Team and league sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Texans will pass on Young, a Houston native, and select USC running back Reggie Bush with the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, pending the formality of Bush announcing that he is turning pro.

Almost nothing will change that course, the sources told Mortensen.

The Texans will pick up an $8 million option on quarterback David Carr, who was the expansion team's first draft pick four years ago. Texans owner Bob McNair made the decision after getting extensive evaluations from various sources that strongly endorsed Carr, including a favorable report from Dan Reeves, the former longtime NFL coach hired last month as a consultant.

USC's Matt Leinart, who could have been the first pick a year ago had he turned pro after his junior season, still remains the consensus top quarterback in the NFL draft, even if Young comes out. For Leinart, he is likely to be the choice of the New Orleans Saints at No. 2 with Young projected to the Tennessee Titans at No. 3.

Steve McNair, who has been mentoring Young, including a visit to watch the Rose Bowl, will be lobbying the Titans to select Young with the third pick, Mortensen reported. Of course, McNair has to re-sign with the Titans for that to happen.

Leinart also would be desirable to Tennessee, where his former USC offensive coordinator Norm Chow is now calling plays for the Titans.

Now the draft picks will change

I don't think the draft picks have changed... rather it's playing out like it should have. Bush has been the #1 pick since the middle of the season, and he's just maintainint that status. Same with Leinart. Young just got into that mix with his Rose Bowl game, but not ahead of those two. Top 3 are set and should be set through April.

So NY Jets, what's happening?! :D

75% Completion to Attempt Ratio.
0 Turnovers
2 Clutch TD's
AND a victory against USC
Equals the best college football quarterback.

200 yards Rushing
2 Clutch TD's
While America was watching the Heisman show.
Equals the heart of a champion.

Both of those equations added together makes VY the best player on any teams board except the Texans. Even though that is his home town, they have all but signed Bush. Which just might fuel VY's hunger to be a champion.
MJ won the Championship in college, but was drafted 3rd. MJ found the hunger to win a couple of Championships at the Pro level maybe the Knicks had to pick that other guy, what was his name? I see a confidence in VY that I have not seen since MJ.
Growing up in the big K, I followed the career of a Champion for the New York Yankees. One scout informed his team, the Houston Astros, that DJ would not be a 30- 30 shortstop. He informed the Astros that DJ may not win alot of gold gloves. The scout did say however, that DJ would help his TEAM win championships. Looking back now the scout was right on every hypothesis. DJ put in the work, the sweat, blood, tears, and talent that he was blessed to win Championships.
I beleive VY has the potential to be that kind of professional football player, a Champion.
