Q: Adam, I see various mock drafts with QBs slotted to go all over. Looking at it from the flip side, what teams would be the best-case scenario destinations for the rookie QBs? -- Hershel (Afghanistan)
A: Well, Hershel, the first team a quarterback should want to get drafted by this year is Houston. The Houston Texans have a strong defense, an offensive-minded head coach in Bill O’Brien and plenty of talent on the roster. So the Texans would be a bit more desirable than some of the other QB-needy teams such as Jacksonville, Cleveland and Minnesota, among others. But ultimately, a quarterback wants to go where he’s most wanted. And it’s going to be interesting this year to see which team is the first one to draft a quarterback. The sense today is it’s going to happen a little bit later than most people thought, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if there weren’t any quarterbacks selected among the top five picks; it’s even possible the QBs will slip out of the top 10. But once one gets picked, then we could start to get a run on them. Watching where the QBs go, as much as the teams they go to, will be the most intriguing storyline of this draft.
