Houston Texans

No. 15: Linebacker Brian Cushing, USC
No. 46: Defensive tackle Evander Hood, Missouri
No. 77: Cornerback Keenan Lewis, Oregon State

Three of our four teams are receiver needy, so I took note of Mark Maske's blog entry on receiver speed.

Houston Texans

A look at a local: Texans defensive end Brian Orakpo.

Indianapolis Colts

Jeff Saturday is disappointed in the Colts offer and thinks he will do better elsewhere. Mike Chappell talked to him.

The Indy Star sorts through several reports, the gist of which are that Marvin Harrison won't take a pay cut and wants to be released.

Notes out of Bill Polian's chat at the combine from Mike Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars and Maurice Jones-Drew are working on a deal that would pay him along the lines of Steven Jackson.

At look at a local: Tennessee State offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis.

Tennessee Titans

Another day, another Titans free agent who says he plans to explore the market. This time it's Chris Carr, with details from Jim Wyatt.

A look at a local: Vanderbilt corner D.J. Moore.
