RTC: Andre Johnson wants another WR
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage ...
Andre Johnson is among the masses who want to see the Texans add another top wide receiver, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
To which I say: Is one of the batch of receivers expected to be available at No. 27 worth a late first-rounder? Plenty of outsiders aren’t so sure.
The Texans are looking to replenish their linebacking corps from a versatile group of prospects, says McClain.
Arian Foster worked as a DJ during the spring game at the University of Tennessee.
The Colts go cornerback in the mock draft from Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
Twenty-five different mock drafts have the Colts taking 16 different players at No. 24. It’s quality over quality in the mock drafting business these days, but general manager Ryan Grigson pays attention, says Phillip B. Wilson.
To which I say: Many general managers pay attention to mock drafters they know get information from quality sources.
The Colts' worst draft pick was Leonard Coleman, and the second best was Marvin Harrison, says Wilson.
If David Caldwell is going to succeed as general manager, he’s got to have a better eye for talent than the last two men who held his job, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
To which I say: Doing better than Shack Harris and Gene Smith in the draft isn’t even a high enough bar to set.
Running through some quarterback possibilities for the Jaguars with Ryan O’Halloran of the Times-Union.
Value needs to rule the Jaguars' draft, not need, says Gene Frenette of the Times-Union.
In his second mock draft, O’Halloran has the Jaguars taking defensive end Ziggy Ansah.
Options abound for the Titans in the draft after a big free-agent haul, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Can the Titans afford to draft for the future when Mike Munchak’s future depends on what happens in 2013? David Climer of The Tennessean considers.
To which I say: As Climer points out, Munchak’s been concerned with the long-term health of the franchise. Does a hot seat change his approach and how much influence will he have?
How do the Titans’ drafts compare to the drafts of the Texans, who’ve won the AFC South the past two years? John Glennon of the Tennessean compares.
