Running through a new McShay mock

4/16/2009

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
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?
