    If the Texans select a QB with their first pick, which could very well be the #1 overall pick. Who should they select?

    Teddy Bridgewater's illegitimate half brother fathered by Terry Bradshaw?

    I would never be a proponent of drafting Derrick Carr, based on the Texans history with his brother, but I watched a couple of Fresno State games in the past few weeks, and that dude seems like a cold blooded killer out there. I was very impressed, even though I had a natural bias against him before I ever watched him play.

    He is a completely different person than his brother.

    Right now, he would be my pick.

    Pretty sure I sat next to Derek Carr at an Astro game several years back when he was in high school in the area. Also pretty sure the Texans would avoid Carr part deuce.

    I really like Tajh Boyd poise, leadership & toughness. He's not a big, tall pocket QB like Bridgewater (who would be the pick if in fact Texans own #1) but he is a solid six footer, 225 pounds, can perform without plus protection, durable, good athlete, does well avoiding rush while extending plays going through his progressions. He averages almost 300 yards per game, 29 TD's vs 7 INT's. Played with Hopkins who was his favorite target @ Clemson. Natural Fit!

    I'd be 100% OK with Bridgewater or Mariota.

    Probably prefer Bridgewater, but I'd be fine with either.

    Matt Waldman of Football Outsiders wrote a great article comparing the two. I wish I could find it.

    I wouldn't rule out carr..he's got the same physical tools his brother had but he wont have to go thru the same crap his brother did in terms of being drafted by a virtually talentless expansion team that's gonna get him killed....Of course, this is b/c i'll always feel that the biggest detriment to David Carr's development here was that he got hit so much, he got shell shocked.

    Derek Carr also has the advantage of having had a brother that has played in the NFL & who likely did help him with learning pro game concepts early in his development at Fresno State...Most times it's the younger sibling/offspring that can't live up to the older sibling/parents reputation...sometimes it works out better going in the opposite direction though b/c the younger has the advantage of seeing what not to do & how things will be. See the Mannings.

    I also feel deep down, he may want to make good on what his brother failed to deliver to this city for both of their sakes.....

    It's November (unfortunately). A lot of these guys are going to rise and fall throughout the draft process so answers that may be given now, may not actually reflect what might be the correct answer in about 5ish months. We may be dealing with a new FO and HC staff and their philosophy could be completely off kilter from what we project them out to be at this early into the draft process.

    Bridgewater may be the overwhelming favorite here, but he has a better than 0 shot of going back to school for 2014. Same with Manziel and Mariota. I'll vote for Teddy but that is subject to much change.

    Mettenberger. That's who I would take. Use the 1 to get my RT/LT bookend to Duane Brown and then grab Mettenberger with the 2.

    I didnt want Teddy for awhile, but after watching more of him and rewatching his bowl game, I think you HAVE to take him. Great passer, mobile, smart instincts, accurate.....you take the franchise qb and don't look back.....fill rt in free agency

    I have not really looked at Carr, but if the guy is a good player I don't care who his brothers are.

    But my vote is for bridgewater. #1 overall, take him. Any pick below that, well...that's a different story.

    Hulk was not Derek. That was an older brother.
