OK, found it.
Quote:
CANTON TWP. — If George Saimes doesn’t know what makes a football player, who does? Browns fans will be pleased to hear Saimes is certain Kellen Winslow Jr. is a football player. “He’s the best tight end I ever scouted,” Saimes said Monday after his speech at the Hall of Fame Luncheon Club. “Better than (Jeremy) Shockey. Better than (Tony) Gonzalez.”

Saimes, 62, has come up for air after spending months neck-deep in the draft. He is the lead college scout for the Houston Texans, having worked for the Redskins before that and for the Blesto combine before that. “Winslow was our top-rated player,” Saimes said. “We found out as much as we could about him, but we were in the No. 10 spot. We knew we wouldn’t get him.”

The Browns grabbed Winslow at No. 6 overall and loved what they saw of him in last weekend’s minicamp. Saimes revealed the top players on Houston’s draft board. Winslow was first, followed by his former Miami (Fla.) teammate, safety Sean Taylor, then Iowa left tackle Robert Gallery, then two receivers, Pitt’s Larry Fitzgerald and Texas’ Roy Williams, then South Carolina cornerback Dunta Robinson.

The Texans prioritized drafting a cornerback and talked about trading up with Cleveland to make sure they got Robinson or Virginia Tech’s DeAngelo Hall. “We were fortunate,” Saimes said. “We were convinced either Robinson or Hall would be a good pick. We stayed at No. 10. Hall was gone (to Atlanta at No. , but we got Robinson.”

Nice Article! I had no idea Winsolow was that high on the board, I mean with Joprru last year I thought we were set with TE's 4awhile. I am kind of glad we did not get Winslow tho he seems to be an attitude problem that I don't want to have to hear about all the time.

Just because the Texans had Winslow rated as the top player doesn't mean they would had taken him with the number 1 pick. Casserly was talking to the Giants about moving up to #4 to select Sean Taylor had the deal with the Chargers fell through. I had heard Casserly on ESPN radio say prior to the draft that the Texans had Winslow, Taylor, and Eli Manning as the top 3 players in the draft, but they obviously were not going to select a QB. 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.

well i'm just glad we got the guy we wanted in robinson...we didn't have to trade up to get him...but if all goes as planned this season...we will probably have to trade up in next years draft to select the player we want...and look out for san diego next year...i see them being in the bottom ten but so will the giants...that means san diego will get two first rounders in the top 10...the ability to build a team with those picks are great

year after year the Chargers draft near #1 if not trade it away, yet see what they have to show for it, more #1's. How are they going to pay all these top picks year after year after year? The Chargers blew it by not taking Gallery first overall. The Giants blew it by not taking Sean Taylor and the Lions blew it by not taking Winslow.

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.

I am happy with the Robinson pick. I really don't need to see the draft board, because I know the Texans trook the player that would best fit the team at this point in time.

Uh... again, my guess (and my point) is that if you polled every GM in the league, it wouldn't have been 31-1 in favor of Rogers or Hall
That must be due to your "privy" information. So if the Lions and the Falcons picked different then us then that already makes 2 clubs right there that differ from us, not just one. So I have no idea where you get this 31 figure from as your logic is flawed and it follows no basis other than what you hear out of Casserly. Of course he's going to say we picked the right one, what the heck do you expect him to say.

I have no "privy" information. I said it was my "guess" and that "I could see how" a few times... you know... it was an opinion.

Some constructive feedback you can take or leave: I know you are an adult and it's obvious you know a little bit about football, but at times your board manner and how you choose to respond to various posters (not just me) is what I'm used to seeing from my kid's ninth grade buddies. Not trying to condescend, it's just what I see. Like I said, your wise@ss responses are lost on me so try someone else. Carry on.

Dude get a grip Dunta Robinson was the only player still available when the Texans selelcted @ #10 from this draft board.

What really would have been interesting if ALL these players had been drafted before the Texans - what do you think Casserly would do?

Now this is pure speculation on my part but I think if Dunta Robinson was not available the Texans would have traded down, added picks and still selected Babin probably even earlier than they did.
