Neither would I. I think the 20 picks after #25 are very close talent level wise.

Both are backups to guys that are established starters, or soon to be established starter & will not likely see the field as a starter anytime soon. There's also Matt Flynn (I'm not sold him yet) that you could probably pick up for a 5th on draft day. I'm sure there are others I'm not thinking of, but my point is the draft is a crapshoot & solid backups have shown whether or not they can compete (Matt Shaub).
I actually wouldn't mind mallett at all

5 picks in the top 125, with the mass exodus Rick needs to hit on all of them if the Texans want to remain in the hunt.

I dont think that QB is in this draft class ....


But I agree with the general principal.

Yep, I think this is the way to go if we can find willing trading partner. The way FA went so far, we need several promising rooks from this year's draft class and getting an extra pick by trading down should increase our chance to land more talents. I hope, our FO be able to land a lots of talented players or we may be into less than exciting year for us. I know many playoff contending teams eventually face cap problem but man, we'd just started in getting used to being a legit playoff team.

I'm sure the Texans will sign one or two FAs.

I hope they are better than Bradie James though, LOL.

At least one of them.

I agree. No more 3rd round fliers on a 6th or 7th round rated prospect or small school guy that takes 4 yrs. to turn into a backup. They need to hit on all 5 of those players.

Nate I can tell you with certainty that Kubiak and Schaub are not joined at the hip. While Schaub is QB of this team Gary will say all the right things , that doesnt mean he's not thinking the same thing we are.

What Lucky said is true - He could be off the books after next season with minimal damage to the cap as far as dead money.

We are never going to agree on this topic, but we will know the truth in a couple years. I'm just not one to put up with either anymore both contracts could be off the books in two years

Yep, it needs to be Super Bowl or bust for Schaub and Kubiak.

No. But, I would consider taking Barkley in the 1st or Bray in the 2nd. I don't think either will be available at that point. I could see Kubiak going for Glennon in the 2nd round. He reminds me of a young Matt Schaub, but with a stronger arm.

I would prefer a mobile type QB. Not a great draft for those.

Maybe. I get your point but here's my thinking; say Lane Johnson or Dee Milliner were to be there. Both are very good but I think I'd rather have the extra second and a decent third over #27. We just have too many holes to fill again. Now if Patterson WR or Cooper OG....

If Milner or Johnson are there you pick them A top 10 type pick at 27, run the card to God'ell. Not going to happen though.

To think Cooper Taylor with better times in both the SS and 3-cone is pretty mind-blowing.

Completely agree. This ain't going to happen but if it did you don't look a gift horse in the mouth, you write Milliner's name down and run to the commissioner.
