Hunter has potential, but needs to show more. McClain may be a warm camp body. I suspect the Texans will sign a cheap veteran NT after the draft and probably draft one in the mid rounds(say 4-6). Mitchell and FA will battle for the starting spot with the other guy being the depth player. rook, hunter, Harris(if still here), Hunter, and McClain will battle for depth/ST/PS.
I'm ok with mitchell getting playing time, mostly on passing downs. More than that we are in trouble.

His accuracy is iffy. He struggled against quality NFL defenses(like Florida).

While he certainly is a big strong powerful guy, he is more an athlete than QB. If you wanted to take him in the 3rd and let him develop that would be one thing. But, like Campebell, if you take him in the first you will likely be disappointed.
Looks like someone out there liked him too. Not saying they won't be disappointed though.

Much appreciated. i figured someone look at him and see a potential option QB and overdraft him. I didn't think he would go as high as he did though.

Here are a couple of quotes I made on EJ awhile back. Didnt realize the Texans would have zero shot at him.
