I felt a need to hit on every pick with a player who could make the Texans 53 man roster & this QB class just doesn't fit that bill. Goode in the 7th would make the team, as would Adcock in the 6th & Rainey in the 5th. Three damn good player now who will develop into better players later in Houston. Texans will address QB next off season. They must resign Matt Schaub & look @ extending TJ Yates. I also feel a two year gap between Yates would be beneficial from a standpoint of timing future contracts. On the one hand gives you time to develop & evaluate prospect, while on other hand time to negotiate future contract. Not trying jump ahead to 2013 (but you should always be aware of prospects 1-2 years ahead) but I'm intrigued with EJ Manuel FSU. Seems like a pretty solid 2nd rd. prospect right now who could move up to end of first round with a solid senior season. That is more the type of athlete/QB I would be targeting next go around. Then of course you have Landry Jones who looks like a Matt Schaub wanna be.
