Huh? Well, I never expect much from a 7th rounder anyway, but a QB seems kind of strange...

Alex Brink it is.

Wow, obviously they think he might be able to be worked with.

Did you guys see the stats of guys who made it from Round 6....Derek Anderson, Brady, Bulger, etc.

04-27-2008, 04:27 PM
And there is Kubiaks developmental QB. I guess that means they either trust Weaver or we're looking for a DE in the UDFAs. Probably a combination of both. I would not be surprised if the last two picks do not make the team.

Well, love rounds 1-5, # 6 I can live with but not wild about, and #7 is just STUPID. We can get a camp fodder practice QB as a UDFA. Makes ZERO sense unless they plan on moving you know who.

Overall: Brink was redshirted in 2003. In his first three seasons at Washington State (2004-06), he appeared in 34 games (28 starts), completing 543 of 948 pass attempts (57.8 percent) for 7,095 yards, 50 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. In 12 games as a senior, he completed 305 of 503 pass attempts (60.6 percent) for 3,818 yards, 26 touchdowns and 15 interceptions for a 135.5 passer rating. For his career, Brink ran for a total of 98 yards and five touchdowns. Brink possesses a good blend of accuracy and mobility but he doesn't have prototypical size and lacks prototypical arm strength. He needs to improve his ability to beat pressure with his arm rather than relying on his feet so much. He gets into too much trouble when he fails to step into his throws and/or tries to make too much happen. Brink projects as a rookie free agent.

and nfl.com (http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/alex-brink?id=365) says
Overview
Washington State's career passing leader in touchdowns (76) and yards (10,913), Brink's poise and intelligence make him a potential second-day draft pick. Brink lacks the big arm and has only marginal accuracy, but he's a gutty competitor who will fight for a roster spot.

Sweet, now we have another arm to throw balls at training camp and sit on the practice squad for a while.

I really don't get why you don't take a shot on Blake in case he gets snatched up instead of a guy who probably will never be a QB on your team...unless I'm missing something.

Hopefully was can sign him as an undrafted player...then Blake can pick where he wants to go if he's undrafted.

Agree..and he probably would chose between Dallas and Houston. You just don't know who might take a flyer of their own in the 7th and you don't get the chance to make a late steal instead of having a practice squad QB.

It looks like Blake will be available as an UDFA, and one would think that the Texans would have an advantage in signing him to a contract, solely based on location.

Just answered above ...to same thing. Agree it would be us or Dallas. Just think you can not take the chance, grab him instead of a waste of QB practice fodder....unless this guy is a Sage type guy Kubes want to mold in the system as a backup down the line.

Well, we've got:

Schaub
Sage
Gray
Boyd
Brink

Maybe Brink goes to the practice squad. Not sure if Boyd can.

I don't know. That's awfully crowded.

ObsiWan
04-27-2008, 04:40 PM
Those last two picks brought the draft grade down to a B-. Plus the fact that we didn't snag a speed DE. The UDFA group could save the grade though.

Exactly...so just pick up Blake so there is no questions....I mean he is one guy with 1st round potential

I can't stand the Smith and others round table on ESPN...half of them dont' know jack but the basics...it is painful to hear.

TheRealJoker
04-27-2008, 04:44 PM
From his description it sounds like he's an overachiever competitive type. If i'm not mistaken Quinn Gray is the type of guy who isn't very motivated sometimes and doesn't work as hard as he should to be a better qb?

I guess Brink is brought in to push Gray and let him know his spot on the roster isn't a gimme. When Gray turns up his play and earns his spot then put Brink on the practice squad and let him compete for a roster spot in 09.

I put it in the FA thread but I'm surprised Chase Ortiz, DE from TCU didn't get taken late either...well so far.

That's roughly what I would give it, a B to B-, or with that 7th maybe even a C+, as I would give that pick a D or D-. Those last two picks dragged the grade down for me. I think there were far better picks for this team. They were heading for B+ or A- territory but I kinda feel like the air got let out of the balloon there. Having said that, I think we got some pieces that are really going to help us in rounds 1-5. All in all, I'm a happy camper. :smiliedance:

Anderson and Diles would be indicators that they are better in rounds 6 and 7 then you are giving them credit for. Studdard too.

Yep, QB at 7 is awful. I guess everyone left the room to go take a leak, and a secretary must have made that pick. They could have at least picked up someone in a need position. There's plenty of UDFA QB's around that can throw the ball for camp.

Come to think of it the only guy no longer on the roster drafted in the last 2 rounds for the Texans in the last 2 years is Lundy.

no sir, your belly would have to be to your knees to actually have a "king dunlap"
