Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub is excited about the teams draft, and especially WR DeAndre Hopkins. Im very excited about all the picks, Schaub said on Monday at Reliant Stadium. Obviously, being an offensive guy, to get a weapon like DeAndre early in the draft, very excited to get him here and work with him and bring him along because he can really help us and add a dimension to our offensive game. Some of the linemen weve taken and all the other guys on the defensive side can really help us. Very pleased with how Coach (Gary) Kubiak and (general manager) Rick (Smith) and all the guys upstairs handled the draft for us.

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said he believes the foot injury QB Matt Schaub suffered during the 2011 season may have affected his play this season. 'I think that the injury he had did slow him down some,' McNair said. 'He was probably in the back of his mind a little concerned about reinjuring his foot, and we certainly didnt want to see that happen. Hes gonna work hard in the offseason on improving his foot speed, and I think that will happen.'

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said he believes the criticism QB Matt Schaub has received this offseason is because of the position he plays. 'When you win, hes the hero, 'he carried the team' and when we lose 'its all his fault.' Its no different, look at what [Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco] has gone through in Baltimore. Up until the playoffs, the last few games there, everybody said, 'Joe Flacco couldnt get the job done, they have to get somebody in Baltimore.' Now, hes really been playing well and people are starting to say what a great player he is. Same thing will happen with Matt. Hell have to step up and perform on the big stage when the bright lights are on, and well all have to,' McNair said.
