    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>A pre-combine rundown of what mock drafters have the teams of the AFC South doing.</p> <p><strong>Jacksonville Jaguars, No. 8</strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/10644150" target="_blank">Pete Prisco</a>, CBSSports.com: Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia.<br /> <a href="http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/2009/02/nfp-monday-mock-draft-2/" target="_blank">Wes Bunting</a>, National Football Post: Jason Smith, OT, Baylor<br /> <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/nfldraftscout-RobRang" target="_blank">Rob Rang</a>, NFLDraftScout.com: Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss<br /> <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/nfldraftscout-ChadReuter" target="_blank">Chad Reuter</a>, NFLDraftScout.com: Monroe</p> <p>My thoughts: The early consensus is there will be a left tackle worth the pick for the Jaguars to insert in place of the disappointing Khalif Barnes, a free agent who won't be brought back. But if they don't love who's left, they could look to defensive tackle or corner.</p> <p><strong>Houston Texans, No. 15</strong></p> <p>Prisco: Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois<br /> Bunting: Michael Johnson, DE, Georgia Tech<br /> Rang: Brian Cushing, OLB, USC<br /> Reuter: Cushing</p> <p>My thoughts: Cushing could be a bigger and more durable outside linebacker, but Davis and Johnson would do more to fill needs. A pass rusher to work opposite Mario Williams is one of them, and Johnson could be the guy. And corner will become an even bigger need if the Texans are unable to re-sign Dunta Robinson.</p> <p><strong>Indianapolis Colts, No. 27</strong></p> <p>Prisco: Peira Jerry, DT, Ole Miss<br /> Bunting: Percy Harvin, WR, Florida<br /> Rang: Harvin<br /> Reuter: Jerry</p> <p>My thoughts: If Jerry is as good as people are saying, I don't know that he'll be on the board here. Is Harvin the crisp route runner and quick learner the Colts require? While defensive tackle and wide receiver are the clear needs, in a best-player-available scenario they could go virtually anywhere position-wise.</p> <p><strong>Tennessee Titans, No. 30</strong></p> <p>Prisco: James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State<br /> Bunting: Jerry<br /> Rang: Johnson<br /> Reuter: Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest</p> <p>My thoughts: Unless they see Laurinaitis as an outside guy, the Titans won't spend even a low first-round pick on a middle linebacker as it's a situational role for them. Smith may make sense as an heir to Nick Harper in 2010. Jerry probably won't last this long and if they lose Albert Haynesworth it doesn't mean they have to have a tackle - they drafted Jason Jones last year.</p>

    It's true we don't have to take a tackle. But Jason Jones does not replace Albert Haynesworth.

    Amusing...

    Someone thinks Michael Johnson is worthy of a 15th pick overall? Even IF Brown and Orakpo go before pick 15, I can't see Johnson climbing that far up...even with a Mike Mamula-like combine performance!And as far as the Colts...you think they'd pass up Harvin because he's NOT a crisp route runner? They PLAY THE SPREAD OFFENSE...OF COURSE they could use Harvin!!! Move Gonzalez outside and insert Harvin into the slot...I will be crying if the Colts get Harvin and we have to try and stop him 2 games a year!!!

    Considering we have 2 big money OLB's and 2 MLBS, I don't see us spending a first rnd pick on a MLB. Unless we re-sign a couple db's and or a WR, we could really use a CB and or WR and or OC and or DE though I dislike Johnson. Johnson is a HUGE boom or bust prospect!

    Jerry is long gone. It'll be a CB like one of the Smiths or Moore or David or Butler, a WR...whichever is still there...Nicks, Heyward-Bey, Harvin, or OC like Mack I think. It's not impossible we take a RB, TE, DE, or DT depending on what we do in free agency and who's available.

    Ugh!
