Reading the coverage: A plan for Houston
By Paul Kuharsky
Texas cornerback Aaron Williams might qualify as the best safety in a terrible safety draft, says Jeffrey Martin. Every team in the AFC South can use a safety.
The Texans need to trade up for Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller or LSU corner Patrick Peterson, says Jerome Solomon.
Aldon Smith is still the pick at 11 in John McClain’s newest mock.
A blueprint for the Texans’ success from Lance Zierlein. Excellent stuff in here. The only piece I disagree with is moving Glover Quin to safety. I think it’s too early to make that decision and the team can still find a couple of quality safeties, particularly if the team is willing to shop in free agency when it arrives.
Is Amobi Okoye conceding he can’t play nose in the 3-4? Alan Burge examines.
Letting Vonta Leach leave might not be all bad, says Rivers McCown. I’m not so sure Leach will get a big deal elsewhere.
Best available player or an offensive lineman? That’s the question for the Colts, says Mike Chappell.

The Colts are looking through a broader lens for this draft, writes Chappell.
Blair White is working to build chemistry with Peyton Manning, says Joe Rexrode. Hat tip to Nate Dunlevy.)
Linebacker options for the Colts from Brett Mock.
The Jaguars are in flux at linebacker, says Tania Ganguli.
Pass defense is a big issue, says Vito Stellino.
Late-round finds are great, but first-round choices can make or break a team, says John Glennon.
Would the Titans, should the Titans, take Cam Newton if he slides, asks Jim Wyatt.
Tracy Rocker gives the Titans a big resource on Nick Fairley, says Jim Wyatt.
Fairley says his sleep apnea is under control, says Glennon.
Who might want to trade up to No. 8?
