Nothing coming out of the Texans organization one way or the other on this. Even McClain admitted on the radio yesterday that he had no idea -- that his declarations have all been based on the assumption that the fanbase would riot if they don't select a QB at 1-1.

Different from your presupposition, but...

The alleged script is: 1) The only player teams would trade up to 1-1 for is Jadeveon Clowney, 2) Keeping Schaub as the better veteran QB than any options out there, 3) Maintains the plausibility that Texans will select Clowney at 1-1 to 4) Force the GM lusting after Clowney to trade with us if he wants to ensure getting Clowney.

Our goal being to trade down, add picks... would be kind of a crappy thing to do to Schaub, dump him after teams have set their QB rosters, but it is a business. That's what I'm seeing as why. YMMV
