If Vince Young can get a better hold of the mechanics of the position and become a more polished passer i would be in favor of him as well. This QB class is quite weak though. Right now, there is not a single QB that i think is first round worthy although Young has alot of natural ability. He did start to really turn that potential into production against Kansas and Michigan in the Rose Bowl. I just want him to take that next step. Bush is a surprising pick since we seem to have some decent depth at RB. He is certainly talented but i like Lendale White better. He is the better overall HB. He can consistently get your 4,5,6,7 yards. I thought he was tremendous in the Orange Bowl at just gashing through the OU front seven. Bush is more explosive but his size is a little bit of a problem and he is not much of an inside runner at all. Right now i have him as a late first round pick.
Denver will likely have 7 or 8 selections among the first 130 picks so we should be able to do alot of damage in this draft. I fully expect 2 immediate starters from next year's haul and 1 contributor in Year 1. 7 or 8 picks in the first 130, your almost guaranteed to strike it rich a few times.
