Default Is there a problem with Yates?

In following the draft, I see a lot of people suggesting we take a QB (Geno Smith particularly, though I see some others mentioned for round 2-3). I'm wondering if there is some problem with TJ Yates that I missed?

I know there are people unhappy with Schaub, but are people also unhappy with Yates? Or, was there an injury or something that I missed? Two seasons ago, I thought Yates looked good, and I thought most people were pretty happy with him. Did I miss something last year that has made people think he has regressed or did he get hurt or something?

Anyone new we draft is going to be sitting behind Schaub (and I would have thought Yates) for a year or two in any case. And, it's not as though we have an opportunity to draft Andrew Luck or something this year. Anyone we draft is going to be sitting for a while first, with the hope that he'll eventually be able to be a starting-quaity QB. It seems to me that we already have that in Yates (unless I missed something), and given that we have areas where we need players, I don't get why we would spend a high-round pick on some "project" QB.

I haven't followed the draft as closely this year, so maybe the QB prospects are better than I realize, but it seems odd for us to use one of our higher remainnig draft picks on a position where I thought we were already OK, and we have little chance of a short-term improvement from the pick.
