QB drafted by Us.
probably wont make the team i assume
Wasn't Brink very highly regarded last year or the year before?
He set a ton of school records at WASU. I wonder why he fell this far.
This is awful.
Schaub. Rosenfels. Gray. Brink?
Welcome to the Texans but why would we spend a pick on him? I would have rather locked up a position of need with this selection before cutting them.
Kubiak wanted a young qb project I assume he may be on the ps? Could have gotten another lineman or another position of need, but I will trust Kubiak saw something he liked in this kid. I am very satisfied with this draft.
What was the point of that pick? I was thinking Ali Highsmith there.
because you can never have enough quarterbacks on your roster.
this was the only pick of the draft i didnt like. dont know much about him. hes got numbers. kubiak said he wants a late QB to groom but i was hoping a bigname guy like johnson brennan woodson.
henderson highsmith blake and hillis were all there.
I bet Weaver is still going to start and Mario will be stuck at RE. Then when half of the TT members say Mario is best at LE, the other half will say but we don't have anybody to play RE. Well, we didn't even freaking tried to get anybody for that position.
So I guess its still Weaver-LE and Mario-RE. Thanks FO.
I didn't know we were gonna look at QB in the 7th, but if we did, this is the guy I wanted.
Perhaps just to add people to the position. Short of Schaub, we have no reasonably young QBs on the roster. I remember Shane Boyd being on the practice squad...but, well...yeah. I don't remember whether we kept Nall or not, but...well, see Boyd. I don't know anything about Brink, but a spare QB is never a bad thing.
Not pumped about this one. There were better choices.
Here's one rationale to draft a QB. With Schaub, Rosenfels, & Gray already on the roster, it would be difficult to grab a decent UDFA QB. Most would look for a spot where they could compete for the 3rd QB spot. And if a trade possibility opens up during the preseason, the Texans might need a 3rd QB. So let's not trash Smith & Kubiak just yet.
Just ask Gruden?
Ah yes, because we all know that opinions on the internet are honest to God proof of what the FO is thinking.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that he was rated higher on their boards than some of the other prospects. Perhaps they want to pull a Drew Henson with him.
Perhaps, the same guys available in the 7th will be available as UDFA's.
Perhaps someone shouldn't have pissed in your cornflakes.
Nall is back with Green Bay.
We have Boyd.
Hmmm.... I guess I'm not on the brink of it all. Good rationalizing here. Real good.
From his description it sounds like he's an overachiever competitive type. If i'm not mistaken Quinn Gray is the type of guy who isn't very motivated sometimes and doesn't work as hard as he should to be a better qb?
I guess Brink is brought in to push Gray and let him know his spot on the roster isn't a gimme. When Gray turns up his play and earns his spot then put Brink on the practice squad and let him compete for a roster spot in 09.
I'm fine with the pick of a QB. I would have preferred Josh Johnson, but a 7th round QB is just fine. I am still baffled by the 6th round choice and in no way do I anticipate Barber playing in the NFL.
