Default QBs, Safties, and Carr

Here's my position on the 2007 draft/FA and what the Texans need to do. Although I think that Laron Landry or Reggie Nelson would be great additions to our secondary, I also think that we can find one through FA and that the veteran experience there would better benefit the secondary.

Now let's assume that Carr's job is up for grabs and we draft a QB in the 1st-3rd rounds. Here's a list of who's on the board regardless of wether or not you feel they will be there at pick 8. Also, a couple of guys who have not yet declared

Brain Brohm(may declare now that his HC is leaving, would be great in a Texans uni)
Jamarcus Russell(Great arm, hard to bring down)
Colt Brennan(I believe some off the field problems, and has not yet declared, but led a great offense)
Brady Quinn(I'm not a big fan, but I have faith that Kubiak could mold him)
Troy Smith(Indifferent of him, but thinks he would be a good fit under Kubiak)
Kevin Kolb(Let him sit for at least half a season, he should be good)
Chris Leak(I don't know much about him, but winning last night has to raise his stock. Can Kubiak work with him?)

These are just my thoughts. I think with good coaching(which we have) any of these guys would make a good franchise QB and lead us deep into the playoffs, what are your thoughts.

A few key points to make:

1. There are no even remotely mediocre FS's available in FA. It's like trying to find a franchise LT in FA. There are some things that we just won't see. There are some good CB's available, but not FS's.

2. Very few of the QB's you mentioned actually fit the WC QB style. QB's need to be very accurate on the run and able to move outside the pocket well. Brohm, Russel, and Quinn (the top 3) don't really stand out in this area. The other QB's are not starter material for a while at best.

What about Jordan Babineaux?? Isn't he a FS that can play Corner?? or a Corner that can play safety??

& he's from Port Arthur Texas.

Better check out Kolb his stock is rising and he is very accurate on the run.

I don't know what it is about everyone's man-crush on the guy. He isn't that good. A solid QB no doubt, but a system guy who isn't ready to play and doesn't stand out in any aspect.

I agree with YTF.... I don't think he's a can't miss guy.... & I wouldn't give him a fighters chance for being a starter in this league. Of course if we work with him, bring him along slowly..... groom him... who knows....

First day pick??

yeah....... ok.

I'm no expert but the guy reminds me of David Carr, except the fact that David Carr was better in every way (college that is). That's kinda scary. Who knows, he could be good and the public will cry about not drafting the hometown guy again.
