Default QBs available in the draft

i think it's a very good year for QBs. aaron rogers will likely be gone when the texans pick, but if he isn't by some chance then they just have to get him, in my opinion. the guy is bright and he throws overhanded, two big improvements over carr.

Carr didnt have a good game by any stretch of the imagination, but we have much bigger weaknesses than QB.

I'm really glad your name is not Charlie Casserly. Please walk away from the keyboard and get a clue.

Hetero Doxy has been a poster on another board for some time and as you can see, he doesn't improve them here. Ignore him.

Actually HD has toned down quite a bit. In his own way he is saying the same thing Vinny has been saying. Neither seems to think that Carr is as great a QB as many posters on this forum think.
I don't think that Vinny has questioned Carrs intelligence or suggested we replace him though.

I mostly just comment on Carr on gameday when I watch him play. If I see ugly, I say ugly. Carr's raw numbers are better, but all the QB's numbers in the NFL are better this year with the new rules.

That said, I think it is certain that we don't take a QB high this year. I think Carr is 'good enough' IF we have a better team around him. I think we will have another RB and will have a running game by next year.

What if DD has strong closing games from here on out...do the Texans go into next year with him as #1 or would they perhaps look at drafting another RB high?

Amen. Carr is only in his third year. His first year he was running for his life, last year he had the injury bug, and this year we are working with a new offensive line scheme and until the last two games, we haven't had a running game. A better running game would make things easier for Carr and the passing game, especially with the weapons we now have at WR, IMO. By the way, depending on how the season ends Vinny, do you think we trade up for a RB in the first round?

I think we pursue a RB in free agency. If we don't land one I figure we may spend a first day pick (we have 4) on one but I don't think we force the pick if we see another player we project to start and he grades higher in the first or second round. I feel we need a new Buc linebacker, a new TE and a new RB going into next season so it would not surprize me to see all these positions addressed in the draft. DL depth and defensive depth overall will fill in most of the draft blanks.
