Make offers to trade down to all the teams that need a quarterback, because crazily Matt Stafford is still on board. (Reminds me of when we traded down so the Ravens could get Flacco)

After that, I would probably go for Clay Matthews with our lower 1st round pick.

Exactly! At worst you end up with a highly rated young talent to back up Schaub for awhile. We know Kubiak is considered a great QB coach. Let him coach him up for a year and see what happens. If eh gets a chance and performs well at all we would be sitting on a gold mine for draft picks next year.

At best and most likely we will be having 5 teams
17 New York Jets
18 Denver
19 Tampa Bay
20 Detroit
22 Minnesota
bidding against each other for his services.

I understand your logic, but I'd rather make the deal on draft day to get extra picks NOW. If we take Stafford in hopes of maaaybe getting future picks next year, we've wasted a first round chance to improve our defense with a impact starter THIS year.
We need to improve our defense this year if we're to turn that proverbial corner and make the playoffs.

I'd try to trade down as well but if that weren't possible then I'd pick Darius Butler. He and Alphonso Smith are the best man coverage CB's this year and I'm not convinced that Dunta will be great next year or that he even wants to sign with the Texans long term.

It depends on how the Texans view Stafford.

If you think he is a top 3 talent, I'd take him. Even if he'll just be a back-up, we've seen that back up QB's that do well when they are given a shot can reap great rewards in trades.

If that is just too far fetched, I'd just take Wells.

Stafford is VASTLY overrated and has BUST written all over him. Football Outsiders(a great site) looks at two key stats for first round QBs: starts and completion % when evaluating QB prospects. Stafford falls between Akili Smith and Cade McNown. Trust me, Stafford has B-U-S-T written all over him.

Someone would be willing to take a chance on him. I'd be looking for the trade down and grab some more picks.

Agree totally, but for some reason, some team will think they can turn him into something.

Starts and completion %? I guess Football Outsiders would have been in love with Danny Wuerrful.

Stafford has started 32 games, gone 14-6 in the SEC as a starter, and was undefeated in bowl games. The only way Stafford drops to #15 in the actual draft is if he is filmed clubbing baby seals. Wait...the Raiders would still take Matt at #7 and deal Jamarcus Russell. Matt Stafford is the number 1 pick in this draft. Granted, it's a weak draft. But he is the #1 pick.
