I also chose Kolb in a later round primarily because I answered the question with an "assuming we did take a QB" attitude and because I don't think we should go anywhere near the first round with a plan to get a QB.

We have more presing needs this draft and particularly on the first day. I'm interested in Kolb and think he would make a good project for the Texans but I'd only consider drafting him if he fell to day two. Our other needs are just too great.

I agree. I am all for bringing in a quarterback to push Carr, but we can't spend first round money on a QB. We will put ourselves in salary cap prison quickly doing that.

I think Kevin Kolb could be a good one on Sundays (someday) and look forward to seeing the Conference USA championship game this weekend.

I would like to see Carr leave to save his career, and his health. Obviously Carr is not the MAN for Kubiak, and it shows, Kubiak is building Carr's stats to use him as trade bait- Oakland?- so he pick can up another draft choice. Don't laugh, remember Brown missing a twenty yarder by 20 yards in the Bush Bowl ? Kubiak is still trying to teach and is not trying to win, or if he is then let's fire him now and put this season to rest so we can recover by draft day. Troy can put an end to the Carr Sucks threads, and if Kubiak is still around, will show where the big mistake is.

i have know problem with troy smith, they beat UT this year, but he is the best attitude i've ever seen when it comes to beating or lossing to a team, i picked Drew Stanton, cause before the season alot of people were really high on him, but i havent heard to much since then, so if he slips to the 3rd round, im all for it, or kevin kolb would be good to, but the other QB's are 1st rounders, i dunno whats the deal with leak i see him coming out cause he can't be to happy with Urban Meyer using Tim Tibow so much

I'd take Kolb ... you don't need a 1st round pick to do what we're doing .

Leak is a senior so he has to come out.

I dont see him getting drafted on the first day tho, if he is drafted at all.

He has decent arm strength, not great.

He has decent accuracy, not great.

But his real problem is leadership and poise. Next time you catch a Florida game where things are going bad for the Gators look for Leak. He acts like a little kid throwing a tantrum.

P.S.- This is just my opinion, I have only noticed the bad attitude on one occasion due to the fact that the Gators are never losing.

I honestly do not want to see a change at QB until the O-line can form a pocket with consistency. I just want whichever QB we bring in to have the best chance to succeed. So I would rather see the team focus on fixing the O-line (and secondary, and linebacking corps) in the draft. Let Carr run the offense another year as the line improves and then draft a QB in '08. Either Carr runs the offense while the draftee sits a year or we get a free agent retread. Fix the O-line, then get a QB, IMO.

I agree 100%! For the next year or two we're going to filling existing holes in our team. Why not draft Kolb? Groom him while the team is building, then insert him in the starting role when DC only has one year left in his contract. I'm all for it!

No QB's in the early picks as the salary cap era trends that out nicely.

Default Re: Which QB Do We Draft?

I don't know if drafting a QB is the right thing to do.

Last draft I wanted VY in the worst way because I didn't think DC had "it". A bunch of folks complained that by taking VY, the Texans would be starting from scratch and it would take another 3 years to build a winning program. People who thought we had talent on a 2-14 team were making this argument. Personally, I didn't think we had any talent and another three years to build a solid program sounded reasonable to me.

Well, the argument still applies. If we take a QB in the draft, he will need 3+ years to adapt to the pro game. Preferably, the Texans would place him on the sidelines for one full year holding a clipboard. Yes, VY and Matt Lienhart (sp?) are doing well in their first years, but I think they are the exception and not the rule.

Oh, and by a quality QB, I don't mean Jake Plummer.

For your consideration, if we had taken VY, we would have a two years left on his maturing process and he could be on the sidelines learning what not to do from DC.

Exactly.

Fix the O line first, the rest of the O will take care of itself.

I've been a Carr 'homer' during all the bashing, but if Porter is not in the long range plans, drafting a QB prospect at this time is not a bad idea.

Don't know too much about Kolb. Is he another 'system' qb, kinda like the Texas Tech qbs?
