Watched a little of Hundley last night in narrow win against Utah & he looked very good, reminds me a little of RG3. These are viable options, when they come out is another question? Timing is everything. If Texans roll with Schaub & Kubiak another year, then cut them loose I could think of far worse things than bringing in a terrific College coach with his franchise QB.
Here are my thoughts:
1. QBs that are seniors and MUST come out
Tajh Boyd, Aaron Murray, Zach Mettenberger, Stephen Morris, Derek Carr, AJ McCarron, David Fallas, Jeff Matthews, Logan Thomas.
Of this group, I would say Boyd and Murray are the only franchise type QBs. I think McCarron and Mettenberger could be good to above average QBs. The others grade out to me as backups or projects.
2. QBs near locks to come out
Teddy Bridgewater, Johnney Manziel
Both of these guys are likely top first rounders and thus likely to come out. I currently have Bridgewater in the franchise category and Manziel in the above average category.
3. QBs who may be in play for 2015
Brett Hundley, Kevin Hogan, Marcus Mariota, Travis Wilson, JW Walsh, Jeff Driskel, Braaxton Miller.
There are numerous high end QBs who could be coming into the draft in 2015. According to my math there are 3 franchise QBs in 2014. In contrast I have 4 franchise QBs in 2015 (Hundley, Hogan, Mariota, and Walsh.)
Based on who is around them, I expect one of Hundley, Hogan, or Mariota to declare for 14. I think Bridgewater will be the #1 QB off the board, the Hundley/Hogan/Mariota early declaration will be #2, Manziel #3 and then Boyd/Murray/McCarron group.
