Draft rumors have several teams looking to slide into the Houston Texans' pick at No. 3. The Texans haven't sent signals that they'd be willing to move, for a steep price in order to amass a fortune of picks.
Besides Cincinnati -- which obviously doesn't need to move -- and Chicago, which may stand pat in the fourth slot because of the wealth of QB talent, four more teams are gunning for a gunner. The rest of the list includes Carolina, Baltimore, Denver and Green Bay. Add Arizona to the list, too, if they lose starter Jake Plummer to free agency.
As the competition heats up, it looks as if Mel Kiper's link of the Packers and Cal QB Kyle Boller might be wishful thinking for GB. That's a steal that is not likely to be overlooked by the others in the hunt. He may even end up with the Bears, although Chicago may be superstitious about using a first round pick on a QB from the state of California after the whole McNown debacle.
The flip side of the QB coin is this: Teams not in that chase may find unexpected players available when it's their turn on the clock. Teams who need a QB soon -- but not now -- like the Pack, may find another unexpected gem dropped in their lap.
