    Here's my theory...
    -Texans have a new coach and #1 overall pick. That just stinks of a QB selection.
    -Texans hire offensive coordinator as HC.
    -New HC is former OC of Denver Broncos.
    -Denver Broncos as far back as I can remember liked to move around their QB with the NFL version of the option (bootleg passes)
    -Texans have the WR's and RB's to run the shotgun, spread offense.
    -Vince Young is highly mobile and ran the shotgun offense in college.

    Wouldn't it be amazing if one game can lift a guy from a late 1st/early 2nd to the #1 overall. Could even be taken ahead of the two most dominant offensive players over the last few years (leinhart, bush).

    They've announced they're picking up the $8M option on Carr. So unless that changes I doubt it. I'd try to trade it if I were them, as good as Bush might be, Dominick Davis isn't the problem there.

    If I were GM I'd be doing everything in my power to get players and/or multiple picks for that #1. Until Houston gets an OL and a decent defense no individual would be very helpful.

    Agreed, if they could trade down and get multiple picks but still get a top ten guy that's the way to go. Go down to 6 or 7 and pick up an extra #1 next year.
