He'll probably move up next year, might even become the starter.Point is, he would have to be pretty damn impressive to pass up Russell and Flynn. LSU has one of, if not the deepest depth charts at QB in the nation. Either Russell or Flynn would start at most other colleges. If Perrilloux is half as good as the hype preceding him, he will be a combination of the other two. Texas's QB depth chart, as is most of the nation, is weak when compared to LSU. Matt Nordgen would not pose much of a threat to anyone, much less Perrilloux. Other than the QB position, both teams are pretty much equal as far as talent goes. Wouldn't you rather have a NC ring and a starting job in Austin than be third string in BR? I know I would.

and here is a updated mock that has us taking Young.

Welcome to VIP Sports Edge's 2006 NFL Mock Draft. We take this process seriously, most recently finishing 10th in accuracy out of 112 mock drafts. That includes the big boys like ESPN's Mel Kiper and the SportingNews "War Room".

UPDATED 1/6/06

1) Houston: Reggie Bush, RB, USC (6-0, 200)

Houston needs an offensive lineman to keep David Carr upright, and they already have Domanick Davis, but you can†™t pass up one of the highest ranked prospects of the last decade. Bush reminds a lot of people of a young Marshall Faulk in terms of speed and elusiveness, but Bush has more size. He is the clear cut number one pick in the draft.

2) New Orleans: Vince Young, QB, Texas (6-5, 233)

Aaron Brooks is a free agent, and he is not likely to return. Young may need to sit for a year, but the Texas quarterback would be a big draw after winning the national championship. Young is a junior candidate who has really improved his passing skills over the last 12 months. At 6â€à ƒÂ¢Ã¢Â€ÂžÃ‚¢5âà ¢â€šÂ¬? and 230 pounds, he has the size and the running skills of a young Randall Cunningham.

3) Tennessee: Matt Leinart, QB, USC (6-5, 225)

The long term future of Steve McNair is in question, and backup Billy Volek is not the answer. Coach Jeff Fisher would love to add a player mature enough to start right away. Leinart passed up an opportunity to be a top five pick in last yearâ₠™s draft. His character and leadership abilities are unquestionable, but he does lack elite arm strength for the next level.

4) NY Jets: Dâ€à ƒÂ¢Ã¢Â€ÂžÃ‚¢Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia (6-5, 295)

Given Chad Penningtonââ‚à ‚¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s injury situation, the Jets would have to consider Leinart if he slipped down to them. Getting an offensive tackle who grades this high is also a very solid choice. Ferguson is a franchise left tackle who was considered the best at his position after last season. He has started for Virginia since his freshman season, and relies on quickness and technique.

I hear you bro. The draft is always my favorite time of the year. It is a time for hope. When all teams are equal. Everyone is 0-0. Finally, the saints SHOULD be major players come draft day.

and if we trade down just 2 spots with Tennesse then the Jets we will still get hawk and probably at least 4 more picks in the draft and hopefully a couple of second rounders.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ryan P. redshirt another year. I doubt Flynn moves down in the depth chart and I would find it hard to believe Russell dropping from 1st on the depth chart to 3rd. Unless someone decides to transfer, Ryan P. is stuck redshirting another year... and I don't see a problem with that at all. Prior to this season, Young was still evolving as a qb and no one knew he was going to be this good in 05-06. I think his decision to go to LSU rather than UT was with the impression that Young was in fact going to return for his senior season. Who knew he was going to blow up big time this year... he did and Ryan's stuck. There's nothing wrong with waiting your turn.

One more thing... Leinart will be a Saint! So please, let's spell our quarterback's name right! I have a feeling someone is going to show up to a game with "Lionheart" on the back of their jersey. :P
