Originally posted by Kolohe:I will guarantee you this, Manziel will NOT be a 1st round pick, too many off-field issues and his arm is definitely not a 1st round arm, neither is his measuables. As for Carr, I'd say yes, he looks like a late 1st round pick/early 2nd, I just don't think too many teams will be picking QB's in the 1st round.
I also don't think the Texans will mess with another #1 overall QB, they could also stand to trade down and fill more holes. After all Andre Johnson is pretty up there in age and Sammy Watkins would be a solid complement to Johnson and replacement. Like I said this is just my opinion and anything can change as the season isn't quite over yet, Washington could very well get the number one overall pick.
Teams who indeed could go for a QB in the first round:
1)Browns; obvious imo. Hoyer wasn't bad but I don't think that they would risk to avoid this problem especially when they possess two 1st-rounders and not SO many holes in the team.
2)Titans; not so obvious but a)new regimes mean usually new QBs and 2)Locker seems to be injury-prone and his play was so-so. Though, I think that whoever is the HC next year, he would try it out with Locker for a year.
3)Jags; any questions about that?
4)Texans; almost the same as with the Titans. new regime, Schaub is done there, Keenum was solid but not more, imo. Additionally, I dont think that they will trade down. Clowney would be a quality addition. They can afford this pick b/c they are stacked at most positions. If they trade down, then only one pick, IF they are interested in Clowney. Too much risk that another team would jump in front of them, imo.
5)Chiefs; not their biggest need now and could become a small one if AS plays good ball in the POs. If he doesnt, then he clearly is a high quality stop-gap whereas another Kap will groom behind him for 1-2 years. Unprobable but I wouldn't rule it out.
6)Raiders; unprobable as well b/c Pryor and McGroin showed some signs of quality but you never know.
7)Vikings; very probable. They need a new franchise QB badly. Ponder is done, especially when Frazier is gone.
8)Cardinals; almost the same situation like with the Chiefs.
9)Rams; very unprobable but given Bradford's contract situation they could think about that.
Have to admit that I predicted an overrun on QBs this year and I failed big-time. ;)
