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.
Would you be willing to post which will be available to Texans in first and second rounds? Let's use #23 & 55 just for grins. I have Bridgewater, Boyd, Hundley and Mariota (if they come out) gone by #23. I think if only one of Hundley, Mariota comes out, Manziel will be gone also and maybe regardless. I think Murray gone before our second. McCarron & Mettenberger should be avail #55 but may be at #87. AJ is currently ranked #91 and if so, would be a steal imo.
I want to be able to recognize the difference between a "want" and a "need" and then I want to be satisfied with getting a need
