Rey- Round 3 became a QB because we decided to put QB in as a need. We all saw the benefit of good, young backups. Leinart is a southpaw, so it makes sense to get rid of him. Lindley has starter potential, but just needs time. He will also push Yates in the future.
Round 5- A strong rushing attack is what the Texans offense is built upon, and since the position is prone to injury, we decided to grab another backup.
I disagree with the southpaw thing. I think it changes some things, but not a whole, whole lot.
In the third round I'd rather get a guy that has a better chance of contributing this season either on special teams or in a set package.
Yes, we had unfortunate injuries at QB this year, but that is not the norm. We shouldn't plan on it being like that every year. Plus, I like Yates. If we are going to go QB I'd rather go after one of the top tier ones. Make a serious move up for RGIII...Otherwise I'd rather see a guy like Pead in the third that can return kicks and get some snaps as a running back. RB is the roughest position to play. Arian was banged up this year, Tate was out all of last year.
I'd rather invest a third on a RB/returner this year rather than QB.
I'm hoping for Pead all the way in that third round.
JMO....No offense to you guys, I appreciate the time you guys take.
