    I really, really hope we stay away from E.J. Manuel. I've already wasted enough time watching him struggle on my other football team.

    If Barkley was there , I might do it . He is bigger than they thought at 6'3 with 10 inch hands . A four year starter at a name school and good character to boot . This is how the Packers got Aaron Rodgers .

    Not seeing it.

    I pretty much ignore everything I hear from teams from just past the Combine to the draft.

    To be fair, this isn't even from the team, per se. It's pure conjecture from the team's media arm.

    If Barkley somehow fell to the 3rd I wonder if the Texans would take him! I'd be shocked though if he made it to them in the 2nd round (#57).

    I think you have to go Barkley in the 2nd if he's there. That would be great value considering before the year it was general consensus that he would be going number one overall.

    Yeah, Kubiak made a couple comments when asked a question at the Combine and everyone's running with it. He even said they do the same evaluation of QBs every year. I reckon Schaub's rough stretch has about everything to do with it. Much ado about nada, imo

    Before it's all said and done Case Keenum will emerge as the starting QB who will do magnificent things with our team!

    If I were a QB hungry team & I thought the Texans were looking at a QB, I would think their asking price would be higher than the team choosing just ahead of them. If the Texans want a QB, why would they trade their pick?

    In that case, I would trade with the team ahead of the Texans to get my QB.

    With that in mind, if the Texans are truly feigning interest, they aren't looking for a trade partner, they are looking for someone to draft a QB ahead of them so the player they really want falls to them....... or, if the next three or four teams aren't in the QB market, then a team may chose to trade, thinking the QB the Texans want would be there two or three choices later.

    So yeah....... I don't know.

    Sounds like Barkley or hopefully Bray will be under consideration.

    This is a good thing. Keenum also could be the answer. Hopefully he has improved in the Texans more conventional offense.

    The Texans can talk all the BS they want and lay down all the smoke screens as well, I'd be completely shocked if the Texans took a QB in the 1st or 2nd round. We just re-signed Schaub to a new contract and will owe him guaranteed money for at least the first 2 yrs.. I also don't think they want a new franchise QB sitting on the bench for 2 yrs. either, not to mention that if they did go after a starting QB prospect then I'd expect Schaub's performance on the field to suffer accordingly. Also this years QB crop ain't that good and I'd expect they might go after one in 2014 to sit for 1 yr. behind Schaub and hopefully 2014 is a better crop of QB's.

    It should be better. You'll possibly have Teddy Bridgewater, AJ Mccarron, Aaron Murray, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel, Tahj Boyd, etc.

    Nooooooo, wait until 2014 to do that crap. QB class is waaaaaaaaaay deeper.

    EDIT;

    Teddy Bridgewater
    Johnny Manziel
    Blake Bortles
    Kevin Hogan
    Marcus Mariota

    It's going to be a way better QB class than 2013.

    While I do agree with you the Texans should wait to draft a QB, unless Bray falls to the bottom of the 2nd/3rd rd.

    Getting a QB of the future is hardly crap. Getting a QB that has accuracy/arm strength and a little bit of mobility, as well as being able to read a defense is kind of important.
