In 2012 he was a complete unstoppable force. He got a knee injury last year and missed a lot of the year so, it's a question of which guy you are getting.

Remember Te'o? Half his push for Heisman campaign was made possible by Nix and Tuitt.

He's a badass.

He's had some health issues. He's had some conditioning issues.

But with a little work, he could be an all-pro. There's a reason why almost everyone had a 1st round grade on this guy.

I love every pick we've made. We are getting great value and guys that sound like difference makers. I just really really don't want to go into the year with our current stable of qbs

Love to be a fly on the wall in the war room. If we do not draft a QB with our compensatory pick in the 4th tomorrow which is the 35th pick in that round, we will not have another go at it until the first pick in the 6th round. The Texans must think all the QB's really suck in this draft.

I'm starting to think that OB is planning on going into 2014 with Fitz/Keenum/Yates at this rate.

This draft has a "You got a problem with that?" vibe to it where QB is concerned. I don't think they're worried about it. Wonder if we're going to find out later on that OB had to say that Case could be a winning starter to get the job?

Likely not going QB because none weigh 300 pounds. This has got to be the "biggest" haul we've ever drafted. Restraint industry in Houston must be minority owners

Or to play the optimistic devil's advocate, there is a QB that they think eveyone else has overlooked...

I think they're going purely by board which is great unless your most pressing need is QB. You can't win without a QB in this league. I honestly wish we still had schaub. I think I could see 10 wind and a legit run with him bouncing back under new coaching

That is what I like, if we don't pick up a QB. The Texans have an identity that everyone in the league is going to know about, and also give the QBs on the roster a good confidence kick by not moving for another QB.
