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.
