By Paul Kuharsky

What to expect from the cornerbacks drafted into the AFC South, from Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report.
Moving on from Neil Rackers, the Texans signed veteran kicker Shayne Graham to compete with draft pick Randy Bullock, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. He’s been with four teams the past two seasons and clearly the hope would be that the rookie can seize the job.
Wade Phillips is optimistic about the pass rush the Texans will field this fall, says McClain.
Who is the Texans’ No. 2 receiver? Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report considers the question.
Andrew Luck isn’t going to be able to use Jim Irsay’s plane to help him get together with other Colts before the class of 2012 is finished at Stanford, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
The Colts will return to Anderson University for training camp, with players reporting July 28, says the Star.
What the Colts need to accomplish in 2012 to consider the season a success, from Dunlevy. I’m big on his first point, developing a defensive identity.
Jordan Palmer is in line to be the Jaguars’ No. 3 quarterback, says Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. Palmer was one of the players the team signed after a minicamp included a bunch of tryout guys.
The Jets, Lions and Titans have expressed interest in recently released cornerback Drew Coleman, according to Kimberley Martin of Newsday. Rex Ryan acknowledged the Jets would look at Coleman, who played well for them before he moved on to Jacksonville.
Running through the post-draft roster and assessing if the Titans got better, stayed the same or got worse through free agency and the draft with Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Wyatt takes a closer look at fifth-round tight end Taylor Thompson.
Three Titans who should be extended in the opinion of Zach Law from Bleacher Report. I’d hold off on Jared Cook.
