Yeah, I know what you're saying. To be honest I put Case Keenum on my board for the same reason a lot of people do and that's because he's not only talented (which doesn't always translate well to the NFL), but also, man, it would be cool to have a UH legend in a Texans uniform.
I'm serious about drafting him though, although a whole lot of how the Texans draft a QB, if they do at all, will be predicated on Schaub's foot. If Schaub is healthy you have to figure that lightning won't strike twice that the Texans will end up losing their starter two years in a row. If it does happen, Yates is a solid backup and we'll never see our 3rd string QB. And if we do? We pull someone off the street or rely on Keenum's superior football knowledge, which has never been suspect for him, regardless of other suspect areas in Keenum's game and/or how he was coached up.
