Even with the remainder of the season we won't truly know about Keenum, eg. see Kaepernik. If they want to bring in a serious look at potential starter their 1st 3 rounds and someone like McCarron or someone they think needs a year of development or would go higher is the way to go.
If they are looking for a developmental guy to fill out the roster then look for the next Keenum and go UDFA. There isn't much if any difference 5-7 to UDFA for QBs. They are all long shots. OTOH there are positions where really good players, possibly even best or near top of their position can be found on the 2nd day - K, P, FB, returner. There is good value at TE as well. I would also like to see the Texans take more chances on the 2nd day with guys who fall dramatically from their ability level like Da'Rick or Tyson Mathieu (sp?).
