Default Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

So...let's play "what if". Assuming the Texans end up with one of the bottom 3-4 picks in the draft: If a "top" QB like Barkley drops unexpectedly like Aaron Rodgers did, should the Texans take him to groom for the future?

I like Matt Schaub so this isn't Matt Schaub hate. Rodgers backed up Favre for 3 years. Schaub will be 34 three years from now. Is it too early?

Default Re: Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

I think it is one year too early to take a QB with a high draft pick, but if we were to do it this year, I would target Tyler Wilson. He's not ready to start in the NFL, and won't be for a couple years, but I think he could do really well in the long term. He has great arm strength, good footwork, and above average accuracy. I could see a team in the 10-25 range taking him as a project for the future. I don't know how high he will go, and he could fall to the 2nd round, but I'd like him for the cost and potential reward.

I think it's a year too late comparing draft classes.

Default Re: Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

What would you guys think of taking Mike Glennon-QB from NC State in the 2nd round? I know he's currently listed as a 3rd round prospect but since QB is a premium position and we most likely will be picking at the very end of each round we'd have to take him in the 2nd. He's got the size teams drool over as well as good arm strength. NFLDraftScout says he needs to work on his upper and lower body mechanics but a couple years under Kubiak should do the trick. I don't know how mobile he is but it sounds like he's to the basics of the game and potential to be a good QB in the future.

Do you project this guy to be a starter? Projected as a third rounder doesn't scream "STARTER", In what ways is he a better prospect than Yates?

I don't see that his stats justify a 2nd round pick. OL, WR, or OLB would probably be a better option in the second round.

Default Re: Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

I am going to say no especially as no QB in this draft excites me. I was big fan of Geno Smith but I think we are solid with what we have. I would not be shocked if Texans draft QB day three. We have too many needs versus QB.

This & it depends on what Kubiak thinks of Yates & Keenum. I know they aren't of "starting NFL Pedigree" but you never know.

I also wouldn't compare this situation to GreenBays, they had a H.O.F.er starting ahead of them. If they knew he was going to play 2 maybe three years, they never would have drafted Rogers.

Even if something were to happen to Schaub next year, I think Kubiak can win with this team & his choice of Yates & Keenum. Giving us time to go up & get a QB & not panic and get a Locker/Gabbert just because we "have to have" a QB.

Only major injury would dictate a move like this in 2013 or if a Barkley drops in Kubiaks lap.

Default Re: Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

If the Texans truly believe Barkley's capable of being a top 5 NFL QB, then they should do it. It would be along the lines of what the Packers did with Aaron Rodgers.

However, from everything I've heard, I don't think Barkley's that guy, and I'd be kind of disappointed if it shook out like that.

I'm pretty sure Kubes is going to wait 3 years club a few key players in the kneecaps, take a page out of the 2011 Colts playbook and tank. Once all is said and done he gets his Aggie - Manziel

Oh I didn't mean to compare him to Yates as far as attributes go, just their potential to be the Texans next franchise QB.

Default Re: Texans Take a QB in the 1st Round?

I'm very intrigued with Klein & what Kubiak can do with him in his system.

I also see a case where he can be another James Casey type of dual functional roles, except kick outside. Imagine the playbook expanding, very exciting stuff.
