Todd McShay's got a new mock draft up, so here's a look from the AFC South perspective:
No. 8: Jacksonville
Receiver Jeremy Maclin, Missouri
My thoughts: Certainly a possibility, especially if Michael Crabtree is gone as he is here. But as much as the Jaguars need a weapon for David Garrard, inserting B.J. Raji next to John Henderson could have a bigger impact.
No. 15: Houston
Outside linebacker Brian Cushing, USC
My thoughts: It's been Cushing or Clay Matthews virtually everywhere as analysts have tried to predict what the Texans will do. Which makes me think they could go a different direction. In this scenario, maybe defensive tackle Peria Jerry?
No. 27: Indianapolis
Defensive tackle Evander Hood, Missouri
My thoughts: Would make a lot of fans happy, but run counter to Bill Polian's track record at the position. If they love a remaining receiver like Hakeem Nicks, giving Peyton Manning another weapon could be the move with the first pick.
No. 30: Tennessee
Cornerback Vontae Davis, Illinois
My thoughts: What worries me here is McShay's comment about Davis' questionable work habits. But they need a corner for depth and as a starter beyond this season. Or how about James Laurinaitis if they project him as an outside linebacker?
