Doubt he'll make it into camp.

Nit pick usually is for most first rounders. So far no reason to say Alabama cannot go undefeated, but I do understand your point. After this draft, QBs should be even more in demand 2014.

As for Keenum usurping Schaub- will. never. happen. He might stick as the 3rd QB or get put on the PS again (keeping 3 real QBs in the system is always a good idea), but him challenging for the starting role is laughable.

I am awaiting the reaction from the UH squad.
I was under impression that Klein'd delivery has to do with his right foot coming up too soon? That seems fixable.

Sic him 76!

Fred remember that my plan calls for drafting QB 2014 to work under Schaub one season and then start 2015. Klein and Keenum 2 & 3 on roster.

If Keenum forces his way onto the active roster they'll probably want a PS QB. Even if Keenum doesn't make the roster, it wouldn't hurt to have two QB's on the Practice squad considering Klein is athletic enough to simulate other positions.

I don't think he has to beat out anyone to make it into camp. I think they could go to camp with 5.

This is a guy that Kubiak is bringing in at least partially because of a recommendation by a friend. I don't think he'll cut the guy without giving him a real shot.

We'll see though.

Belichick had 4 QBs on the roster the year he drafted Brady, so everything is possible.

Soon after we picked him up, someone said we would probably use him during camp to help us get ready for Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, & Andrew Luck..... AT least the mobility they possess.

I don't know if it's true or not, but it is plausible.

Also, Keenum may not be as far along as we hoped. I can see McGee as a threat to both Keenum & Yates. & Klien to threaten Keenum on the PS.

The only way I see us carrying three QBs on the active roster, is if Kubiak is not happy with Yates.

I like that the Texans are taking a good long look at him just like they are with Keenum. Every time one of these guys is mentioned someone ends up posting a condescending comment about unrealistic UH fans (rmartin65 got his in first today) but really it seems like if you aren't getting in line to comment on how poor the odds are for these guys then you're portrayed as some unrealistic Cougar fan.

Like most of the people who comment about these things I'm just happy they are giving them a look. It's a good thing that the Texans are looking through the UDFA's for overlooked players. They just might find one eventually. I like Case Keenum and I'd like to think there was more to him than meets the eye. I'm not delusional about his chances though.

I'm also glad they're looking at other QBs. It's inexpensive with a potential big payoff. The SF boards probably derided posters suggesting Kaepernick over Smith. I think we should look at guys with obvious advantages over Schaub: deep ball, mobility, run threat, ability to read/react to defences, youth.

Schaub getting only one rushing 1st down last season is crazy. Db's play Schaub differently now that they don't worry about a run or deep ball.

What is wrong with discussing a potential addition to our roster? Has Kubiak assigned Klein's pecking order?

Maybe you should use one of those humor icons because it came across as denigrating rather than humorous.

I can understand badboy's reaction. This is a very important part of the season for some, the college football fans, the draftniks, and those who are emotionally "involved" with the development of this team, among others.

JB's comment comes across insulting, as if their interest are misporportionately applied to trivial matters.

50 posts is not a big deal, but it shows that their are people interested.

It takes all kinds to form a community.
