"It is so early to really talk about it, the scouting process is so early,'' he said. "But me and Coach Chow had a great relationship in college at USC. I still talk with him quite a bunch."Who knows what could happen with the draft. I am going to go wherever, to whatever team takes me. If it's Coach Chow, then we'll re-ignite our relationship that we once had at USC and I'll play for the Titans.''
"I feel like it is an honor to get drafted wherever I go, whatever city wants to take me,'' he said. "I'm just looking forward to the opportunity. I feel like I am ready to move on.''
"If I have a chance to go to a team where I can sit and play behind an experienced quarterback and learn the system and then maybe get thrown in the next year or so, that would be great," he said. "But if I go to a team where I have to play right away, that would be great, too, because I'll get that experience right away. Maybe it won't go so well at times, but it is all experience. You just have to go in with the mindset you are going to learn and get better every year.''
Leinart called Young a "great talent" and said they became friends last season."Obviously there is going to be guys that have stronger arms, there is going to be guys that can run faster," Leinart said. "But for me the biggest part of it is managing the football game, having those intangibles that great quarterbacks have — Joe Montanas, Tom Bradys, Peyton Mannings and both quarterbacks in the Super Bowl, (Seattle's Matt) Hasselbeck and (Pittsburgh's Ben) Roethisberger."They manage the football game and don't make a lot of mistakes. They make the key throws and keep the chains moving and those are the things that go kind of overlooked."I understand I probably have some critics, and everybody has critics, but I know what I can do and I proved myself at USC the last three years against great competition. I am just going to go out there and play my game and if people don't like it they don't like it.''
