Re: 2014 NFL Draft chatter/rumors/news
Pure speculation on my part, but my guess is the Texans want to see how the draft develops tonight. If a QB they really like falls out of round 1 or if they can manage to move up late into the 1st and get their target they do that...and Mallett is the fall back position and they do that deal after the draft or tomorrow prior to round 2.
Mallett has had off field issues in his past but by all accounts since there in NE he has been a good boy and he had first round talent coming out. One #2 pick isn't too steep imo if you think he has the goods to be a starter for the medium to long term. Remember, QB's carry a premium. It cost the Texans 2 #2 picks to get Schaub and BOB coached Mallett so he knows what he's about, and with 3 years backing up the best he should be as ripe as a brown banana and ready to go come day one. Fitz then makes for a very capable and veteran #2 and those left duke it out for #3.
I'm down either way because either way this team gets better.
Let the wailing and gnashing of teeth commence. Chicken little is being paged.
