2014 NFL Draft: What if the Houston Texans wait on a QB?

3 of 7

David Fales, San Jose State

Fales is 6-2, 220 pounds, and as of the Nov. 20th player rankings of Mel Kiper Jr., Fales wasn’t listed as on of his top QBs, but CBS Sports has Fales sixth-rated QB as of Jan. 13, 2014.

Fales is projected to go in the second or no later than the third round as he passed for 8,382 yards in two seasons as a starter at SJSU, including a 4,189-yard season this past year, throwing 33 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

In his draft overview, it says:

"“Fales began his career at Nevada but decided to transfer because he felt he didn’t fit the dual-threat role that Nevada asked of their quarterbacks. He spent two seasons at the JUCO level (Monterey Peninsula College) and had a cup of coffee at Wyoming, but eventually transferred to San Jose State.”"

He’s been around and seems to be able to adjust to a change in scenery when it comes to different programs.

A strength of Fales is that he’s “quick-footed” with his overview stating:

"“Quick-footed in his drops with an excellent feel in the pocket to step up and maneuver while keeping his eyes downfield. Smart pre-snap reads and understands exactly where he wants to go with the ball, using his above average peripheral vision.”"

All of that is a plus, but there are also parts of his game that folks are worried about, including his speed and throwing off-balanced too many times, as it says in his overview:

"“Bad habit of throwing off-balance, causing his ball placement to waver. Overconfident and too willing to throw into coverage and take chances, especially under duress.”"
