Alualu holds ground in quality redraft
By Paul Kuharsky
Rick Gosselin’s as good a draftnik as there is, so I read his 2010 redraft with considerable interest.
Beyond the three AFC South teams he has changing first-round selections (he’s got the Jaguars sticking with Tyson Alualu, who leads the connected story), Gosselin pulls four former or current AFC South players who were not originally first-round selections into his new first round.
So congratulations LeGarrette Blount (undrafted by the Titans, now in Tampa Bay), Pat Angerer (Colts’ second-rounder), Alterraun Verner (Titans’ fourth-rounder) and Marc Mariani (Titans’ seven-rounder).
You all fared much better in December than you did in April.
Gosselin gave the Titans Angerer at 16, the Texans Colt McCoy at 20 and the Colts Jared Veldheer at 31. The players those three teams picked -- Derrick Morgan, Kareem Jackson and Jerry Hughes -- are gone from the first round.
The piece also includes a bunch on the Jaguars and Titans as Gosselin covered their game Sunday, two seats over from yours truly.
