I also agreed with taking a QB in this draft; however, I just don't see a clear cut guy I want to build the franchise with.
One of them may work out, but all of them have their own warts.
I'm not one who likes short-term, patch-work solution.
I don't have to worry about my job on the line with the Texans; neither does O'Brien in the near term.
I would rather trade away for as many future picks as possible.
There are several better looking prospects in the next couple of years.
Let the other teams get stuck with this year class.
There won't be as many if them to vie for the current top four of Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Brett Hundley, and possibly Christian Hackenberg (if he comes out.) As a group, these guys will most certainly present a better looking class, unless something goes wrong for them.
If you think Belichik doesn't pay attention to the O-line, think again.
He always paid a lot attention to that unit.
76 I don't know why you keep mentioning Hackenberg as a potential pick next year. He was a true frosh this past season so he won't be eligible for the draft until 2016. The Texans aren't going to try to wait that long to grab a franchise guy.
