    If schaub runs out of bounds and slips and breaks a finger nail were not gonna win another game without him. I know he was tough last year during the Jags game to come back out and play after T-Rex threw the game away.. BUT. I think we need to get a young qb and mold him, not in round one but maby round 4 if there are still good qbs on the board. or maby get a good FA whose a pocket passer like schaub. Hopefully Shaub doesnt get hurt and produces the same numbers for years and we can hang on to him for 15 more years if hes still putting up the numbers.
    Round 1 Cornerback
    Round 2 Safety
    Round 3 Tebow
    Round 4 DT

    if Tebow is available i think that would be nice to have tebow to line up as a rb or run wild cat with him (allthough hes not a pocket passer) hell once we get him, he could add some lbs and be a rb?

    Kafka has impressed since I first heard of him. Have watched piles of clips. He'll go sooner than later. JMHO

    I'm wondering how the FO sees John David Booty. I mean, is he just a camp arm or do they think he's someone they can develop.

    So far, they haven't had great luck drafting QBs late or picking them up off the scrap heap (like Zabransky.)

    Of the QBs in this draft, I'd love for us to pick up Lefevre but I'm almost positive he's going to be gone by the time I'd like to use a pick on him. I don't want to use a pick on a QB before the 5th round and preferably the 6th.

    In the 6th or 7th, I wouldn't mind picking up either Skelton or Kafka.

    I like Skelton. I am hoping that we have Schaub, Booty, and Skelton as our QBs when we break camp.

    No way we have Booty and a rookie QB as our only backups behind Schaub when the season starts unless Dan-O is out with an injury. Just too risky IMHO. You may not like it but Orlovsky is the man off the bench if/when Schaub goes down.

    And what make Orlovsky the man? Kubiak was Elway's backup, and he did not have any experience. Booty has just as good a shot at being a solid backup as Dan O.

    Dan O has a ton more game experience. I think he's got a much better chance of being much better as our backup than JDB.

    Orlovsky vs. JDB as backup QB? Another reason for massive improvements on the O-line. Let's just hope that Schaub doesn't get hurt.

    I posted this same question on another football site and many guys responded that Zac Robinson-Oklahoma St. has the raw skills for be a good backup.

    Yes he has game experience, but very little of it any good.

    G GS Comp Att Pct Yds Avg TD Int Sck SckY RT
    10 7 143 255 56.1 1,616 6.3 8 8 14 95 72.6

    That is from 2008.

    I liked Booty coming out of college. But he will have to prove himself during OTA's and MiniCamp. I might not get a chance to watch him in person at the summer camp. But I did see Dan O last season and was not impressed by what I saw at practice. Hope Kubiak can correct the kid.

    That was from 2008 with the Lions. A very bad Lions team. And at times, he looked pretty good.

    And bad experience or not, that's experience that JDB doesn't have. If JDB is able to play better than Dan O, great. But I don't expect him to.

    I'm pro DanO.

    Those stats for a first time starter on a bad team are ok.

    Most rookies have stats around that level or worse.... take these.

    Comp Att Pct Yds TD Int Sck SckY Rate
    196 364 53.8 2,444 12 20 26 195 63.0

    Do you know who that is?

    Mark Sanchez, the franchise QB of a good NYJ team.

    Dan O is not a bad QB.

    Amen to OLine improvement. Asamoah would be such a good fit @LG. I'm also one of those Zac Robinson fans. I watched him in about 4 or 5 games, a skills competition, and the combine ... the kid can throw the ball! Plus he's athletic, head is on a swivel, has great mobility, and can, I believe, be had in the later rounds.

    I'm sold on Tebow, with even a year of learning he will be a good, winning QB in this league.

    If our back up QB is having to play a lot for us then odds are the season will not be that good anyways, so I really could care less who the back up is..

    To be honest, I wasn't that into the draft back then.

    My addiction to the Texans has fueled my addiction to the draft.

    I feel that anyone who doesnt think Bob McNair would LOVE, I mean get a boner LOVE to have Tim Tebow on his team they are out of their minds. I know he is not ready for the #2 QB spot, but should be able to see the field in some facet of the game.

    I think McNair would request we use a 2nd on him if Tebow fell that far. After all I have read and seen, I think some team is going to take him EARLY EARLY 2.
