    Anybody think it might be time to draft a guy like Griffin III and sit him a year or two while he watches Schaub?

    I'd personally like someone at QB for the Texans, in the future, who can be more mobile than Schaub.

    I saw his interception tonight vs. KSU...someone slammed into his knees right as he was releasing the ball and it made the pass go wonky on him--It was not like he threw it intentionally into that LB's hands.

    He's got a hell of an arm and a quick release .... Accuracy on the deep ball is really good.

    Only watched about a quarter of the game today .... and that was my first time watching him , I came away impressed.

    That Baylor WR .... forget his name , has some great hands too.

    LOVE THE GUY...

    Here's what I posted on the Jags board.




    RG3 is going to be one hell of a player at the next level.


    What kills me in that quote was A&Ms collapse, I was really high on them on that board...even predicted them to beat OU. Oh well, I guess that can still happen. They need to nutt up, A&M is possibly the most talented team in this conference and they continue to find ways to lose, but that's for another thread.

    Yeah, I would take him. It depends on how the rest of the season goes and who is available, but I think he could be something special.

    He might be a 1st round pick. I doubt we spend that on a QB

    I think more teams would be looking to draft a guy like Robert Griffin III because of how well Cam Newton is playing for the Panthers. This is a copy cat league and trust me teams will be interested in getting the next Newton. I think Griffin will go pretty high if he keeps playing the way he's playing. I don't think he'll be no.1 pick because Andrew Luck is pretty much a lock at that spot. But it won't surprise me if he goes somewhere in the top 5.

    It could be a very strong QB class though. Luck, Barkley, Jones, Tannehill, Griffin, Weedon, Cousins, Lindley, Foles, Wilson, Moore, that is cbssportsline's top 11. That is a hell of a list. And it is a strong year for WRs and ILBs. Some players have to drop.

    agreed.:cool:question is how will this impact Texans? are we good with Schaub, Leinart & Yates? I happen to believe Moore has a chance to be next Aaron Rodgers.

    I am all for drafting another QB. Where? I dont know. I am certainly intrigued by the upper tier guys (guys expected to go in rounds 1 and 2), but a guy like Moore (I have a round 3 grade, but expect him to go no sooner than the 4th) allows the Texans to draft another position early and still grab a QB.

    Moore is not the pure athlete that Rodgers is, but his arm (especially accuracy), mind, and leadership are on that level.

    We have to many holes to draft a QB imo. Schaub is good for 2-3 years. i'll see maybe 2013 draft if then. We need CB2, WR2, NT, ILB and at least one Oline that can play guard and tackle. That's 5 rounds. We have a good prospect behind Schaub now.

    Voice of common sense... bah.

    These guys have talent, it is hard to pass on them. However, you are right, there are other, more pressing holes to fill.

    Who? Yates?

    I think it is a bit early to state that. Not too often good prospects go that late. (Tom Brady expemption in effect).

    Kendall Wright makes Griffin look better than he is. And that's not even a knock on Griffin, who I love.

    Wright does not get the credit he deserves. Anybody see that TD catch on 4th down? Good lord.

    RG3 is only a jr.

    But if he comes out, even with all of the Texans needs I still would take him. He has a very rare quality arm/elite mobility/accuracy/ability to process info quickly.

    I think he has a chance to be another Steve Young.

    Regardless Kendall Wright is somebody the Texans should take in the 3rd/4th rd.

    Matt Cassell, Brian Hoyer???......all players that went "that late" and to the same team. There's plenty of good prospects that go that late.

    Griffin was kicking *** and taking names well before Kendall Wright ever broke out this season. Kendall Wright is simply a NFL caliber prospect, which is exactly the type of receivers Griffin is going to be throwing the ball to once he comes into the league. This guy is a future star. With the way the NFL now plays their game, he's tailor made for this current league.
