Makes me wish we had Schaub still here...

Seriously, though, the only QBs I wanted were Manziel early and Garoppolo later (would have been OK with Bridgewater at 2.1, but not earlier). We didn't really have a good shot the way things played out. gtexan is right about us not being in good shape without a QB, though. I guess this is a total rebuilding year, and we'll be having to go all out to get a QB next year.

I'm glad about Nix, but I am depressed about having only one pick left in the next 90. I think there's probably a lot of good value in that range that we'll be missing out on.

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?

I bet we're about to start hearing how great they think our QBs are.

I wanted Clowney and Nix from the beginning and got my wish. I am very very happy.

I have a hunch we are eying (eyeing?) Logan Thomas. I don't know why, just a hunch. And I am not overly thrilled with the idea, but I am damn happy with the picks we have made so far. Something's gotta give, and I am good with that being QB for now.

probably, I've not wanted to be too negative and I hated the Kubiak Texans (I've been tweeting quite a bit during the season however)...I'm more on board with this new start. Especially today where we really see something tangibly different in the tone of the picks.

In a way the Texans are building the blue print of NE championship years. Build a strong defense then run a conservative safe offense that dont take chance and turn over the ball. The question is can coach achieve this with the current stable of QBs?

Not sure he's smart enough to be an NFL QB. Jury is still out.

mercy and Clowney with Brooks and Cushing inside is how I see it. Gotta add more to that in terms of depth but I see that starting unit right now.

Nope, hate the thought of Andrew Luck throwing to Andre Johnson clone, even if the clone is only 80%.

I just see it as more conventional. We've been sold for years on crap like your NT doesn't have to be that big and that ship ain't shinola...stuff like that.

I'm still hoping we end up with Shayne Skov, Smallwood, Barrow, or Christian Jones to be our ILB beside Cush. Then keep Reed at SAM with Merci backing up Clowney and coming in sometimes in passing situations.

Preaching to the choir here.

Love to draft Logan Thomas.

yeah, I'd have loved to draft a guy and get behind him but perhaps it's best not to force a Gabbert or a Locker or a Ponder on your team. Always look on the bright side of life.

That is going to be the question. Do we think that Fitz can protect the football well enough to not lose us games? This will be the major decider if this team is a playoff team or a top 10 draft pick.

I think it is possible with the offensive weapons available.
