    ...football career over.

    No team offers a trade of any kind.

    Who do you take at 1.1?

    Theodore Bridgewater without a doubt. He will start day 1, practice 1. He has everything you want in a QB. Good character. Smart. Cerebral. Pro style offense. And he will answer all size questions at the combine.

    Robinson, Bridgewater, Manziel, Watkins, Barr, Mack are
    All in play. Whomever seperates himself the most at combine interviews and private workouts.

    Might want to change title and add, hypothetical!!!!

    Clowney's corpse. Because...

    "Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Jadeveon Clowney will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."

    Is this a joke? Did something really happen?

    Optimus Prime found out that Clowney is actually a Deceptacon. He transformed into a Semi and trucked Clowney into oblivion.

    It's just wishful thinking on Infantrycak part because he really wants Clowney to just go away. See I think he secretly wants to hop on that big Jadeveon-Bandwagon but doesn't want to admit it.

    No, I would just like to have a discussion of the other players which doesn't devolve into EITHER a Clowney discussion OR a trade discussion. Clowney and trades have been discussed plenty elsewhere.

    FYI - I have made very clear, Clowney is off my board due to injury concern - nothing to do with performance or motivation.

    Without "Hypothetical Situation" in the title, I think this title is in VERY poor taste.

    Everyone relax. Gracious.

    You have to take best QB available.

    We don't need a LT, we've got one, that we gave up Joe Flacco to get therefore Robinson and Matthews are out of play.

    We don't need a WR, We just spent a 1st last year on one. I get potential Watkins talk if our whole football team was stacked and we wanted to think about the future, but this is obviously not the case for the Houston Texans drafting 1.01. Plus, I don't like WRs unless they are 6'2+ if their QB is not named Brady, Rodgers, Brees or Manning.

    I like Mack, but HECK no will I spend a 1.01 on him.

    Does that make your Board unique, because I'm not aware of another Draft Board that has completely removed Clowney for any reason, injury or otherwise ?
    But if the Texans were to build an offense with a 3rd round pick @ QB (as you suggested elsewhere that the Seahawks have done and which may be a good model for us to emulate), what non-QB would you use our top pick on if not Clowney ?

    He's being uncharacteristically contrarian this off-season.

    Don't know and don't care.

    I would like to see some discussion without Clowney to narrow in on that decision. That's the point of this thread. The relative merits of Mack, Mosely, Watkins, etc. compared to each other and the QBs is getting lost in the Clowney debate.
