Knowing that they needed help in the defensive backfield as well as a pash rusher, I don't think Winslow was ever seriously considered an option for the Texans.
Heard Casserly say a couple of times that there offensive players that he would have no issue taking at number 10. IMO, if a guy(outside Qb) is the number 1 on your board and you at ten, then you take the guy.
