I think he can do it, and given a real chance could possibly be our QB of the future, but the jury is still out. I still think QB needs to be addressed in the draft no later than the 3rd round no matter how good Keenum looks.
The rest should help everyone with minor injuries and to just decompress for a bit, but I don't really expect anything better from Brown and Newton, their injuries require more rehab than just 2 weeks off. Agreed, Quessenberry at LG next season, though I wouldn't mind seeing him get a tryout at RT either. An O-lineman somewhere in the first 3 rounds, preferably at RT.
I also think LB is a priority but we disagree on how to fix the issue. To me Reed isn't a good OLB and would be much better off at ILB, thus fix both spots by picking an OLB in the 1st or 2nd. Maybe Adrian Hubbard in the 2nd.
Just to keep my thinker thinking and you know on my last posted mock I selected McCarron in 3rd, the starting QB usually gets 99% snaps with Texans and if Keenum is that guy, he will get same. Why not use higher picks for other positions & allow "projects" like Yates and late round or UDFA train? Now if I think Keenum may not be the guy (and that is why I select AJ) of course go higher. That is why Keenum needs to show something Sunday. I am researching a new (to me) prospect for 7th round..
ILB: as posted elsewhere, Phillips today blew up the idea of Reed to inside. What makes you think we will select the answer at OLB with our draft history? You are more optimistic than I. lol
Q: I agree that he could possibly be a RT for us but that leaves LG wide open as nothing on roster now. So if you think you want him at RT you have to draft for LG and very high. Even if Brennan Williams is healthy, I don't see his skills at either OG. So any mock you do should have OG top 3. Too bad there are not many.
