Normally, I'd go with Robinson because I believe in building up the trenches and having a line of Brown - Quess - Myers - Brooks - Robinson would be a pretty awesome line.

If Bridgewater slips like Aaron Rodgers did, I wouldn't mind trading back up into the first to nab him. Other than that, we'll have to look for our QB later and hope that TKyss is right about there not being a difference in the first 5-7 QBs in this draft.
Who else wishes that the Texans would've drafted Alonzo/Williams/Cyprien etc.... instead of Hopkins and taken Rodgers/Stills etc later in the draft? If they had Watkins would be in play.

If feel the same way about picking the QB's this yr.

The QB situation has none of them separating themselves from the pack and if they did , they wouldn't be better than the above players .

But I also cant get past pairing Clowney with Watt.

I guess it comes down to how far you feel the gap is between Bridgewater, Bortles, and Manziel is. Also how do you really feel about any of those being the guy you hand the keys to the offense and franchise to?

Myself? Maybe McCarron...and that is a BIG maybe to me. I'm just not sure from day one even he's ready to take the reins. I'd feel more comfortable with that scenario if I thought Schaub was someone who could stick around for one more year and ease any of those QBs in. I think the way his contract is set up and how bad he was last year it's slamdunk he becomes a June cut.

The next option then becomes, is there a stop gap QB on our roster currently (Keenum or Yates) or FA that you can ink to a short term deal while you develop a QB? I don't see either Yates or Keenum as that guy. Freeman, Cassel, McCown, Flynn maybe out there? Hope that next year's crop is worth moving up for or that the team struggles and lands in a good position to make a high pick again?

The final option becomes acquire a QB via a trade. How much does Philly value Foles? They also have Barkley on the roster whom they took on a flyer in the fifth. New England has Mallet. I am sure there are others, the question becomes trade price and how much do you spend on a contract to put them in place long term if you do believe they are a long term solution?

If it's me take your pick between the top prospects this year and move forward with them. For every Kaep and Russell Wilson there's Trent Edwards, John Beck, and Colt McCoys that people try to pick up later in hopes that they can coach them up or overlook glaring weakness because they won't cost a top pick. I think it's a cheap way out that doesn't work as often as people would hope it would.

I really like this way of thinking. If we had a franchise QB, we could get away with less on the OL. If we had an elite OL, we could get away with less at the QB position.

We're much closer to having an elite OL than we are to having a franchise QB.

I "know" it's the right thing to do...

I think the Texans need to get more athletic real quick . A 6'5 332 lb man that can break a 5 flat 40 is scarce . The Texans would have two of them on the right side of the OL .

Yep,

3rd and short/goal line offense shouldn't be a problem anymore.

This has been tough for me. We need a QB and we need a QB really, really bad.

But... none of these guys make me excited. None of the guys in this draft have made me really excited. If we draft one of them, I'll be OK with it but part of me is going to be very, very worried. I also don't like any of the guys AFTER the top tier guys.

I don't like any of the free agents out there, either. I don't think that means you just roll the dice with the best of the worst, though.

So we chose a bad year to suck.

That's why I'd choose to take the best player available. To me, that's Watkins. (Or Robinson.)

As to our QB situation, we'll just have to rub some dirt in it and walk it off. Literally. Take a flyer on someone who has a shot in the draft, pick up one of those crappy FA vets, and then throw them all into the mix with Keenum and Yates and see who emerges. If no one does, we'll be looking at the QB class next year and hoping it pans out better than this one did for us.

The Texans have some good players that need help . Gone are the expensive that don't fit , the oft injured , the slow , and the legacies .

I vote for Bridgewater, because I still believe he is the best player available not just qb. I've always found it funny how the combine numbers make people fall in love with a player. I for one tend to go with what I see on the football field.

I don't believe he's going to be the best pro and that's what you're trying to accomplish .

If the Texans did go that route and where in this mindset then hands down Robinson or Watkins. I just keep thinking even with a mediocre vet... Trotting out AH, Hopkins, and Watkins! I mean chose your poison outside or in the slot. Almost guaranteed a mismatch at one spot every down.

Honestly, if I had to make a guess? Two man race between Bortles and Bridgewater.

Ah, but the question isn't what the Texans will do, it's what YOU would do if you were in a spot to make that choice.

I voted Matthews but could have just as easily gone with Robinson.

If you ask me tomorrow I could just as easily go Clowney then Van Noy at #2.

Be it offensively or defensively, build solid foundations in the trenches.

We've all seen what happens when you fail to do so.

Default Re: Who would be your #1 choice?

Bridgewater........Robinson.........Clowney.....in that order.

Whats funny is Aaron Rodgers is the guy TB is most frequently compared to for a number of reasons...among those reasons is him not overly "wowing" NFL scouts with anything. As it stands right now TB's getting the exact same treatment Rodgers got when he was drafted. It's all Manziel or Bortles....all is quiet on TB from scouts. There's either a tremendous amount of disinformation going on about him....or teams really arent impressed with him.

So in my mind, im preparing for the texans to pass on him.......and regret it.

Whats funny is Aaron Rodgers is the guy TB is most frequently compared to for a number of reasons...among those reasons is him not overly "wowing" NFL scouts with anything.

There's either a tremendous amount of disinformation going on about him....or teams really arent impressed with him.

So in my mind, im preparing for the texans to pass on him.......and regret it.
Do you think Aaron Rodgers would have been ready to start day 1?
