Gary Kubiak on Case Keenum: “I think he’s got a future”

Posted by Nick Scurfield on May 27, 2012 – 12:46 pm

Rookie Case Keenum is one of three quarterbacks taking reps for the Texans with Matt Schaub not participating in organized team activities (OTAs) because of a foot injury.

An undrafted free agent from the University of Houston, Keenum is the all-time leading passer in NCAA history with 19,217 career yards and 155 touchdowns. He racked up those numbers in a high-flying spread offense, but he has made a seamless transition to taking snaps from under center.

“It’s interesting because for him to go play under center – he’d never done it – that hasn’t been a problem at all,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said on Thursday. “Now, it’s just kind of getting used to playing under there from a standpoint off seeing things and verbiage. There’s a lot of verbiage in our offense and I don’t think there was much at Houston, if I’m right, so he’s having to adjust to that. He’s very smart. He’s a diligent worker, and that’s all you can ask for.”

The other major knock on Keenum coming out of college was his height (6-0 5/8). Keenum pointed out at the NFL Scouting Combine that size hasn’t mattered to Saints All-Pro quarterback Drew Brees (6-0), and he said he didn’t think it would matter to him either.

“He and I were talking the other day and he said, ‘Well, these windows are small to throw in this league. Dang, coach,’” Kubiak said. “But you learn. You learn to throw through windows. I saw one of the greatest small quarterbacks in (Doug) Flutie do it for years. Once you learn what you’re doing, you’ll find a way to do it. He’s well on his way to learning what he’s doing, so I’m very pleased. I’m excited to work with him. I think he’s got a future. We just got to take it a day at a time.”
