I was one of the very few people who thought Keenum had some promise as an NFL prospect, and even I think Houston would be insane to pass on this QB class. It's not so much that I've judged Keenum a failure, only that his future is hardly set in stone, and by getting a top tier QB prospect, IMO the best "prototypical" prospect of the last ten years not named Andrew Luck, you pretty much ensure yourself a good future at QB. A healthy Houston team is certainly not hurting at pass rush either. Years from now, do you really want people to be saying that you passed on a "can't miss" perennial pro-bowler for Case Keenum? I think "can't miss" is a bullshit idea that I don't believe in, but people that steer opinion in the media will see it differently.
That #2 draft pick makes the RG3 trade a terrible one for Washington. They could have, at worst, Johnny Manziel with that pick. Dead serious- I would take Manziel over RG3 straight up. Or to put it another way, if Washington offered RG3 to the Rams for their own #2 pick back, I'm not sure the Rams would take that deal. Then of course you have the mountain of picks that the Redskins handed over in the previous two drafts already.
That said, I have a hunch that Snead screws this up and trades down. His team still needs a massive talent infusion on offense, particularly WR, and this is a great year to target WR in the mid-to-late 1st. Some QB desperate teams in that mid-1st range will definitely make it worth his while. Though even with a good deal, and even with a good WR pick, he'd still be making the lesser move. Bradford is dooming that franchise.
I think Sankey is a hell of a RB. He's got some similarities to Giovanni Bernard and Doug Martin, who were drafted in the late 1st to early 2nd range. Both Martin and Bernard contributed immediately for their teams with good/great rookie seasons. I don't think it's a stretch at all to put him in the late first, but my gut feel says he goes mid-2nd.
Unless Dalton pulls an Eli Manning and shows dramatic development out of nowhere in his 4th season, it seems pretty likely that what you see is what you get with him. That said, as a QB with close to league average passing numbers on a team with a great defense and a talented RB they are under-utilizing, a team that is 8-4 with a solid shot at a #2 seed in the AFC, it seems pretty unlikely they would take a QB in round 1 to me. Even though personally, I would take Manziel over Dalton in a heartbeat.
This is the least excited I have ever been for an NFL draft. And it's all your fault Seahawks for being too awesome. Seattle could draft Marquise Lee at #32 and I wouldn't even be shocked to see him as a healthy inactive next year.
