    Interesting. I wouldn't mind drafting a QB in the earlier rounds. If we get lucky, we'll find the next Russell Wilson.

    IDK, I've heard this draft is pretty thin at QB.

    True, I've heard that too, but we're not looking to draft a QB in the first round -- at least, not that I know of. Hopefully, we try to find a diamond in the rough...someone who is considered a later pick due to his lack of height, school he went to, etc.

    Yup.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up too much. Coaches/GMs always say they're going to do their due diligence and not rule anything out.

    I can only think of EJ Manuel if they mention mobile qb.

    Take this for what it's worth to you. But I heard Lance Zierlein say on the radio this week that as many as 9 QBs could be taken in the first 3 rounds. And that makes sense to me. The QBs coming into the league seem more plug and play than in the past. I think QBs coming into the league now are much more advanced than 10 years ago. Take the right guy in this draft, and you should have a starter by 2014.

    JUP!!! Kinda weak in the QB draft class this year.

    That said, it doesn't really matter as we've seen a second string collegiate QB, fast track it to the Pro Football HOF.. Who was it that guy that started ahead of him again?
    :thinking:

    The field widens if you define mobile as faster than a glacier.

    The commoditization of the QB position is upon us.

    Kubiak needs to get outside his comfort zone here. Dont just make the "safe pick," get somebody with a ceiling. And why settle for mobile? How bout mobile AND a legit deep ball. Our offense has become so predictible, if you add a qb who can competently threaten deep, we stop being so one dimensional. He doesn't have to start next season and drafting a guy in the top 3 rounds might light a fire in schaub and yates. There's been no competition for schaub just as there wasnt for carr.

    When people here have to wonder if Kenuhm is a solution you know it's bad. Get it done!

    They should be scouting QB's either way. When Schaub's contract is over in three years, his wear-and-tear alone would discourage an extension.

    EJ Manuel would be a good fit for this system, but I hear that he has trouble digesting the playbook and that could hurt him.

    What do you guys think of Jordan Rodgers from Vanderbilt or BJ Daniels from South Florida?

    That may be true, but I think more then anything that it is the new rules that make it easier for these younger QB's to have the success they are. The success of the spread offense seems to really be helping out so many of these fresh QB's from college.

    I would think that attempting to digest a playbook would, indeed, hurt him.

    Texans also won't rule out drafting OL, TE, WR, RB, DL, LB, DB.

    Our sources tell us Texans are unlikely to draft a K or P.
