Default Re: QBs in this draft class.

I just finished watching Mike Glennon in 5 games; I think people will start talking about him soon.

Good size, good arm.
Good mobility for a big man.
Can throw with pretty good accuracy on the run.

Pretty solid footwork and mechanics.

I think he has a good ceiling.
There's a chance that he can be an upgrade over Schaub.

I want to watch him some more.
At the moment I think he's a late second, or at least an early third.

Some already said he might be drafted in the first.

If Bray grows up and improves his footwork he can be a franchise QB. (Big if) I would trade up and take him at the end of the 1st rd/top of 2nd rd.

Dysert also has potential to be a starter. I dont like Glennon, he's got the ability to be a starter but stares down his receivers too much for me to believe he will be successful in the NFL.

From the college games I've watched this year, I can say this is a false statement. Now if u want to say,guys need a yr or 2,I will give you that. Murray,manuel,bray can all be good starters in this league. Bray and manuel have a lot of physical talent.

I don't like how EJ doesn't seem to recognize coverage, blitz, and holding on to the ball too long.

I didn't like him as a Jr, but I will watch him some more this year.

At this moment, we're looking for somebody who has the ceiling to replace Schaub.
Even if it might take a couple of years, the guy must demonstrate that upside.

He also looks like he has no mobility ie. Schaub and even the announcers made the comment that he doesn't like to move around.

Well I bet I can find a guy who can throw two picks to help cost his team the 1st seed and HFA through the playoffs in less than 3 phone calls.

Man he reminds me of a young joe flaco. He, Like a lot of the QB's in this class has potential and all the physical abilities you look for in a young QB. But he is going to need some time and good coaching to reach his potential. As are the other all the other top talents in this draft.

Default Re: QBs in this draft class.

Glennon is a good prospect to begin as a backup. He's got a very good arm and some ability to sling it. If he's a little slow footed, I'm sure he'll learn very well from Schaub lol...seriously though, Texans need to start building up their QB talent core. Schaub is sailing off the map and TJ Yates is a Sage 2.0...a gunslinger who makes things happen like touchdowns and turnovers. They should start taking chances with QBs until they have a legitimate, contending QB.

Default Re: QBs in this draft class.

This QB class is not very good. Smith and Barkley will probably go early but only because of team's needing QB's. Glennon is a project. He's very raw. He's going to be extremely overrated come draft time because of his size and arm. Bray might have the most talent of all the guys in this draft but he has serious attitude questions. I like Tyler Wilson, but I don't think he'll be anything more than a solid starter.

Default Re: QBs in this draft class.

I think when evaluating these young qbs, we must remember these are not finished products. What we should look for in these players are traits that can't be taught. Good coaching can make up for a lot of things,but the ball of clay that is the talent is natural. I can find flaws in all of these qbs,but I'm looking for the guy who can do some of the things that will have the entire playbook open in a couple of years. How many guys are big enough,mobile enough,and the arm talent and iq to do everything kubiak would like to do. I really feel from a physical standpoint, if kubes were coaching carr earlier in his career,he would've been a lot better even though I was never a david carr guy. How many guys fit the aaron rodgers profile as a qb? Not the aaron rodgers we see now,but the guy coming in who had a nfl with good mobility. In this microwave era, many want aaron rodger the mvp and best qb in the league,but in reality after his 2nd yr in the league,a lot of people thought he wasn't gonna be any good.is there a guy with his out of college skillset who will be availible for the texans?

yeah you can find someone to match his negatives but that is not what we want. Try finding someone that can match his positives and that we can get. Keep in mind that I have tried to replace Matt for two years.

I keeping wanting to like EJ Manuel more than I do. Nice physical specimen, throws a nice ball, moves well enough, does not seem like a mental midget, but something is just missing.
