AFC South: Kevin Jones

Posted by's Paul Kuharsky

Borrowing an idea from Tim Graham over at AFC East HQ, we at the AFC South Blog begin a periodic look at the history of the AFC South-relevant first round draft slots.

We start with No. 30, where the Tennessee Titans will pick on April 25.

Recent history suggests they can find a great player at the spot -- and they are part of that history. In 2000, not in dire need of a linebacker, they landed Keith Bulluck and he's been a stalwart for the Titans.
