I still need to be sold on any of them being selected #1 overall, because right now I'm pretty sure that's where we're going to be picking.
I'm a fan of Bridgewater but I agree with this. If the Texans don't see him as that type of talent, then don't draft him just because the pundits have labeled him as the top guy. Reaching on a QB because he's a QB is what got teams like JAX and MIN in trouble.

He was placed on the Active/Non-Football injury list, so he's not currently eligible to participate.

As you might guess, O'Brien has said little in the way of specifics on his injury, but it's something with his back.

Who has the gash on their ankle? I remember reading something about that on here somewhere.

It is indeed a back issue that has accounted for Brooks' weight gain and the poor conditioning keeping him out of practice. No mention has been made of the toe problem that crippled him a good part of the latter half of last season. We know that toe problems can very commonly be chronic and recurrent. Like other lower limb problems, the hip mechanics can definitely be negatively affected if the previous injury is not entirely rehabbed before resuming play. And when hip mechanics are disrupted, back issues, which then can also become chronic, can be very close behind.

Yeah, everyone has to earn their stripes in O'Brien's new, tougher, non-country club environment. Unlike in the previous regime, no one is handed their spot on the depth chart, right?
...I know I read that someplace....
