And assuming the Texans would have still had the 3rd pick in '03, Palmer wouldn't have been available. They'd be looking at Leftwich, Boller and Grossman if they went QB in year 2.
In '04 however, Roethlisberger would have been sitting there at 10, again assuming that's the position they would still be picking from.
