The one advantage Tannehill has over the other QB's listed is that he has already basically run Garys offense for the last yr and a half under Sherman.
I've got Tannehill rated as a late 2nd rd pick. (Just about where the Texans will be picking.) He probably will be long gone by then, taken by one of the QB needy teams.
Agree on Coleman, see mock 1B.
Another angle is player trade value. Yates has curb appeal as a trade target to other teams needing QB help. Where on this list would you place him?
What is his trade value to another NFL team? Heck no I don't want to trade him but there will be some calls to inquire about his services come draft day so when do they listen, a mid/early 2nd? Seems like pretty good return out of a player selected middle of the 5th rd. one year earlier. This process needs to be executed when opportunity presents itself, with fewer & fewer pressing needs Kubiak & Smith can leverage their strengths.
Texans will rate QB's value in upcoming draft just like any other position. From combine fast forward to draft I fully expect both these prospects stock to rise, it's a fluid process. Texans are probably in depth evaluations right this minute over current roster players, which should be completed along with coaching hires before the combine (maybe in early stages of a Draft Big Board construction as well).
