Every NFL team goes into the draft with a to-do list based on its needs, its draft position and its willingness to trade up or down. Our scouts have been doing their homework and present an early look at the most likely scenarios each team will face on draft day. Below is a breakdown of the AFC South.
The Texans have lost DS Marlon McCree, DC Kenny Wright and WR Corey Bradford via free agency, and also made ILB Jay Foreman a cap casualty. But outside of the additions ILB Morlon Greenwood and nickel DC Lewis Sanders, the team has been quiet during free agency. With significant needs at left tackle, nose tackle and outside linebacker, the Texans will need to land immediate contributors with at least three of their four day-one draft picks.
