    I think it is time to look at what options we have at QB in this draft.

    Guys I think we should look at are:
    Brady Quinn, Notre Dame
    Troy Smith, Ohio State
    Kevin Kolb, University of Houston
    Colt Brennan, Hawaii
    John Beck, BYU
    JeMarcus Russell, LSU

    These are just some guys I like.

    We might not want to go first round QB, but it's a possibility.

    Share who you think would be good for us.

    Kevin Kolb we could possibly get him in the third round and he could develop into a solid nfl qb. And he would be a home town guy that people always seem to want:bananasplit:

    The way I see it Kolb goes in the 2nd. 82 career TD passes in 4 years. 30 career INTs though. 756 career rushing yards 21 TDS. He had 15 in one season, and 15 in the other three. 12,578 career passing yards. He seems like the best Senior QB after the dropoff of Brady Quinn. I can't see him dropping past the 2nd.

    Colt Brennan with 88 career TD passes in 2 years. 24 career INTs. 9,291 career passing yards. He is only a Junior. He had 53 TD passes this year.

    Quinn- No. He is overrated (still the best in this class but not as good as everyone thinks. He would be rated 4th or 5th now if he was thrown in with last year's QBs) and I dont want a QB in the 1st.

    Brohm- No. Not unless he falls to the 2nd.

    Smith- No. Not unless he falls to the 3rd.

    Kolb- Yes. Only in the 3rd tho.

    Russell- No. Talented but makes wayyy too many mistakes.

    Beck/Brennan- No. They are talented but I dont like drafting system QBs.

    Well Kolb is a system QB.

    I think it's good to get system QBs. Teaches QBs how to read defenses.

    You've got to think Kolb can read defenses darn well. Playing under the same system during highschool and college he knew where all the receivers were going to be...it's just about reading the defense and figuring out which one was open. I think he, and those two other QBs have done that very well.

    So far Kolb has 27 tds this season and only 3 ints.

    All three ints this season bounced right off his receiver's hands.

    I didn't know that much...that is very impressive. You have to be a master of reading defenses if that is the case. Peyton Manning was the master of reading defenses coming out of college. A little similarity there.

    Looks like a late rounder potential. 52 career TD passes 24 INTs.

    Could you tell us a bit about the player. From what I can see he is a Senior at age 22 6-2 220. Good runner it looks like. 1,256 career rushing yards 26 TDs, with 518 this season 5TDs.

    Id have to go with Kolb he has the best TD to Int ratio, and can run too.

    Kolb seems to fit the offense, but picking a system qb is gutsy.

    Sure, dont have any written stuff on him, just what I have seen.

    Pros: Very mobile. Extremely smart decisions. Good leader, I think he has only lost 10 games or so. Great Accuracey

    Cons: Played D1AA. Loses confindence in his recievers at times, choosing to run instead.

    I have no idea why everyone in Texans underrates Troy Smith. Mark my words, he is going to be a phenominal NFL QB.

    Houston, again.
    Kolb seems like a reasonable choice. Has talent and upside, he would come in the 3rd so the expectation wouldn't be to start for a year or two. Carr isn't going anywhere until at least the end of the 07 season, so it would make sence to take a more developmental guy and have him sit for 1-2 years.

    So, no one would consider Chris Leak? The guy throws the best ball out of all of them. I'm not saying that he's the answer, but I'm willing to gamble on that guy, because he has a whole lot of upside. Oh, and Russell is a hometown guy too.

    Well...about Chris Leak. I like him. I guess. A little bit. He just seems scared sometimes in the pocket. Makes horrible decisions under pressure pretty consistantly. Through something like 13 INTs this year. He's ok in my book...I wouldn't draft him. We need better than OK.

    What about Drew Tate? I don't know where he's projected to get drafted, but I'm thinking he was probably part of the reason Iowa went 6-6 this season. Anyone know much about him?

    Drew Tate is a hard guy to project. He shows flashes of great QB play, but can breakdown, get upset and make mistakes. His coach said this one time and I noted it.

    He can run pretty well, alot like David Carr. He's also got a good arm, but I am not so sure about his ability to read defenses. I'd say it was average...above average at best.

    I don't know if the hometown you are refering to is Houston but Jamarcus is from Mobile, AL, unless he moved there when he was a kid. Another guy to look at is Drew Stanton. I don't really like him (reminds me of Drew Tate but a little better), but he is considered one of the better senior QBs and will be talked about during draft time.

    Chirs Leak is so talented but he just plays scared and will make a lot of mistakes if you get any preasure on him, plus he is very short. with our line i wouldn't touch him, thats a bad combination. however, like leachmtb said, he thorws the best football of any QB at any level.
