Updated Team Needs: AFC South


One of the most important factors when preparing for the NFL Draft is knowing each and every NFL team. NFL Mocks keeps a very close eye on each team and will bring you an updated needs assessment at the end of each month. These needs will help as we prepare to make predictions for the 2011 NFL Draft. Continue to check out our team needs page to find the most recent assessments. Also after looking at the team needs move on over to the Big Board and see what prospects might fit your teams need.


Houston Texans

The Texans continue their pass defense woes. They’re still dead last in the league in pass defense. Glover Quin really doesn’t need to be their starter. Their first round pick this year, Kareem Jackson, has played fairly well. Their offense is golden now that they have a running game. The Texans have the type of offense that can keep up in shootouts since they have a terrible pass defense.


Indianapolis Colts

The Colts needs are obvious. First, you’ve got to know that they need better run stoppers on defense, namely defensive tackles. Next, their other line needs upgrades. If they want an aging Peyton Manning to stay off of his back, they better get a solution. Left tackle has to be a priority. Peyton Manning is this team, it doesn’t matter if they can’t stop the run, the Colts will still get wins.


Jacksonville Jaguars

Where do I start? Obviously, quarterback. David Garrard should’ve audibled, but instead he didn’t, was KO’d by a linebacker, and got a concussion. A true number one wide receiver, MSW and Mike Thomas are not 1 and 2 receivers respectively. Interior offensive line and especially pass defense needs upgrades.


Tennessee Titans

The quarterback position has to become an issue for Jeff Fisher. He can’t win a Super Bowl with Vince Young. You just don’t know what you’re going to get with him. Their secondary has taken a step back this year, so maybe some upgrades are needed there, as well. Alterraun Verner has shown some nice skills so far.
