Being a leader of men, a gravitating force both on & off the field along with ability to handle any situation with composure, like nothings too big for him. Mechanics can always be improved, shorten stroke, footwork, hand placement, launch angle stuff like that. When I watch Colin Kapernick he has the total package, height/weight ratio, speed (4.53) rocket arm, but do you ever see Kubiak use the pistol? Whatever he runs the QB needs to possess ability to extend plays. Kapernick was a 2nd rd. pick so there is no reason why Texans cannot find a good one in the first two rounds if so inclined. So your point is well taken, one that I hope not just Kubiak & Rick Smith heed but McNair as well this love affair with entrenched starter has lacked a viable succession plan since expansion.

As much as I want a QB change, there is no way we take one in the first 2 rounds. Shaub has 4 yrs., 60 mil. Management isn't gonna waste that money with him sitting on the bench. We have to address positions that need immediate impact. WR, ILB, NT, S. These can be upgraded via 1st/2nd round picks.

I would argue that waste is already on them to the tune of 150 million plus. Hardly see 15-20 as excessive? Anyway most would agree whoever selected 1st or 2nd isn't going to be fully polished without time & development. I suppose if you want to roll the dice like Indy, Luck would be needed

If we had a top 5 pick then I might have a different opinion. Problem is we have a late-round pick.
