The Texans will have the following selection slots in the 1st 3 rounds (http://www.gbnreport.com/2013selectionorder.html):

1st Round - #27
2nd Round - #57
3rd Round - #89
3rd Round (Unofficial Mario Williams compensatory selection) - #95

4 picks in the top 100. Though the last pick can't be dealt, I would trade the 1st 3 if the right QB prospect was available. That's how important the position has become.

Indeed Lucky. If there's QB worthy of trading picks, I am for it.

Not sure what leads you to believe that Schaub is in trouble of losing his starting job. As much asI would have liked to have seen him replaced three years ago up through today, it is not going to happen. Just deal with knowing that Schaub is going to be your qb for the next three years.

You're living in fantasy land, brother. Schaub is our guy, we're stuck with him.

There is no real "franchise" QB in this draft. I was all in favor of trading all of our picks last year for Andrew Luck. Would have set us back two years but in the long run we win.

We have reached our ceiling with Schaub.

Schaub is on the roster for at least one more season. For sure. That doesn't mean that his eventual replacement can't be found. If you can get the right guy, Schaub could start the season and have the rookie replace him around week 10, ala Kaepernick.

And why are you hating on Fantasyland?

The more I think about it the more certain I am that 2014 is the year to get a Qb for us.
Preferably, AJ McCarron in the late first.

Kubiak is here, we're stuck with Kubes and Schaub for at least 2-3 more years. It stinks... but thems the breaks. The real issue we should be addressing is our right side offensive line (offensive being the operative word). If we're going to play TOP and ball control, we need to be able to run at will. Our right side doesn't allow that as of now.

This is so overblown. They will be fine. This is a hard system to step right in and perform at a high level. It takes time. Remember how everyone wanted Meyers out of here his first year? Remember how bad Caldwell looked at first? Smith was a solid vet when we signed him. He didn't look so good at first either.

Everyone they played on the right side this year is really young. Basically all rookies. Next year will be their second year in the system and they will be fine.

couldnt agree more!
i still think we need to draft a guard and tackle though, solely for competition and also because we have a lot fo possible FAs at those positions

Absolutely! Im thinking a fringe tackle with upside. Someone that could be plugged in at guard right away if needed but with a little coaching could be our swing T.

If you're willing to do that & considering it's generally rated a poor QB draft this year, then why not make a run at trading for a QB? I'd start with offering a 2nd for Cousins @ Washington or Ryan Mallett @ New England. Both are backups to guys that are established starters, or soon to be established starter & will not likely see the field as a starter anytime soon. There's also Matt Flynn (I'm not sold him yet) that you could probably pick up for a 5th on draft day. I'm sure there are others I'm not thinking of, but my point is the draft is a crapshoot & solid backups have shown whether or not they can compete (Matt Shaub).

1) I don't consider this a poor QB draft. There may not be the can't miss guys at the top. But there are as many as 7 guys with starting potential. The Texans will have a chance to take one, whether they stay put or move up.

2) Washington isn't trading Cousins with the RG3 injury. Mallett hasn't shown anything worth trading for. Flynn is in demand (Jets for one) for whatever reason, and will go for more than a 5th.

3) The draft shouldn't be a "crapshoot" if the guys making the picks know what they're doing. With Charley Casserly, it's a crapshoot.

Funny how Unger (Who got hurt his rookie yr.) Okung (who only played half a yr Rookie last yr,) Carpenter rookie last yr (Missed with ACL.) Sweazy, (Played DT in college last yr) Helped form one of the best OL's in the NFL this yr in Seattle.

So the fallacy is that it takes a long time to develop into a Cohesive OL. It takes Talent first and foremost and a great OL coach to coach up his players.

But dont let the facts get in the way of whatever the Texans org is trying to sell you. Fact is within 2 yrs if the Texans had a competent QB and upgraded the coaching staff from the top down they would probably be closer to a SB. Afterall do you honestly think the Texans can win a SB next yr as currently constructed? So every yr there is no change is a yr lost. IMHO Exhibit #1 Coach Joe.

But as BoB has said in the past change would be too traumatic. LOL I think this team as a group has reached their peak and you will start seeing a downward trend. Their only saving grace is that the play in the worst division in the NFL so making the playoffs and keeping the $$$$ rolling in shouldn't be a problem. However they are miles away from being a true SB contender. IMHO

Neither would I. I think the 20 picks after #25 are very close talent level wise.

Yep, I think this is the way to go if we can find willing trading partner. The way FA went so far, we need several promising rooks from this year's draft class and getting an extra pick by trading down should increase our chance to land more talents. I hope, our FO be able to land a lots of talented players or we may be into less than exciting year for us. I know many playoff contending teams eventually face cap problem but man, we'd just started in getting used to being a legit playoff team.

I'm sure the Texans will sign one or two FAs.

I hope they are better than Bradie James though, LOL.

At least one of them.

I agree. No more 3rd round fliers on a 6th or 7th round rated prospect or small school guy that takes 4 yrs. to turn into a backup. They need to hit on all 5 of those players.

Nate I can tell you with certainty that Kubiak and Schaub are not joined at the hip. While Schaub is QB of this team Gary will say all the right things , that doesnt mean he's not thinking the same thing we are.

What Lucky said is true - He could be off the books after next season with minimal damage to the cap as far as dead money.

No. But, I would consider taking Barkley in the 1st or Bray in the 2nd. I don't think either will be available at that point. I could see Kubiak going for Glennon in the 2nd round. He reminds me of a young Matt Schaub, but with a stronger arm.

I would prefer a mobile type QB. Not a great draft for those.

If Milner or Johnson are there you pick them A top 10 type pick at 27, run the card to God'ell. Not going to happen though.

Completely agree. This ain't going to happen but if it did you don't look a gift horse in the mouth, you write Milliner's name down and run to the commissioner.
