    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Pro Football Weekly has its first <a href="http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/NFLDraft/Draft+Extras/2008/mock2329.htm" target="_blank">mock draft</a> out, and I know a lot of you want any draft tidbits you can get.</p> <p>Here's what Nolan Nawrocki has the team's of the AFC South doing with a line on what I think:</p> <p><strong>8. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac" target="_new">Jacksonville Jaguars</a></strong></p> <p><strong>OLB Aaron Curry / Wake Forest</strong></p> <p><img src="http://a.espncdn.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/med/trans/jac.gif" alt="" hspace="2" vspace="2" width="80" height="80" align="right" />With GM Gene Smith making the final call, expect the Jaguars to put a greater emphasis on character and recognize true value. Curry's ability to interchange at any LB spot makes him extremely valuable for a defensive-minded head coach like Jack Del Rio.</p> <p><strong>Kuharsky says: </strong>Plausible, since two tackles are already off the board, but OT, DT and CB are all bigger needs.</p> <p><strong>15. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou" target="_new">Houston Texans</a></strong></p> <p><strong>DT B.J. Raji / Boston College</strong></p> <p><img src="http://a.espncdn.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/med/trans/hou.gif" alt="" hspace="2" vspace="2" width="80" height="80" align="right" />Gary Kubiak knows the value of a good lineman and has made a habit of drafting in the trenches since he took over the club. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10454" target="_new">Amobi Okoye</a> has turned out to be the flash in a pan that some evaluators thought he was in college, creating a pressing need inside. Raji has the strength to hold the point and enough quickness to create some pressure and could bring value at either DT position.</p> <p><strong>Kuharsky says: </strong>Plausible match of need and availability in his draft.</p> <p><strong>27. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind" target="_new">Indianapolis Colts</a></strong></p> <p><strong>WR Darrius Heyward-Bey / Maryland</strong></p> <p><img src="http://a.espncdn.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/med/trans/ind.gif" alt="" hspace="2" vspace="2" width="80" height="80" align="right" />With <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=939" target="_new">Marvin Harrison</a> on his last legs, the Colts' offense was not quite as explosive last year. Heyward-Bey has the blazing speed to run by defenses and would be an excellent speed complement to <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2578" target="_new">Reggie Wayne</a>.</p> <p><strong>Kuharsky says: </strong>Plausible. I know defensive tackle seems most pressing, but the sort of DTs the Colts need don't have to come this high and the sort of receiving talent they need might.</p> <p><strong>30. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ten" target="_new">Tennessee Titans</a></strong></p> <p><strong>QB Josh Freeman / Kansas State</strong></p> <p><img src="http://a.espncdn.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/med/trans/ten.gif" alt="" hspace="2" vspace="2" width="80" height="80" align="right" />The Titans are in position to think about the future, and with solid receivers to be found in coming rounds, they could take a gamble on the only other bona fide passing prospect in the draft with <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=734" target="_new">Kerry Collins</a> hitting free agency and not guaranteed to be back.</p> <p><strong>Kuharsky says: </strong>Not going to happen. The Titans will have some sort of resolution at quarterback before the draft. They are sitting in a great spot to take the best available player, so they won't use a first rounder on a QB for the second time in four years.</p>

    Someone didn't do their homework because there is no way we draft a QB in the first round. I don't see us drafting a QB at all. Especially since we have three right now and it seems they might hang on to all three if possible.

    This entire draft is terrible... I can maybe see the Houston pick, but I just don't see the rest at all.

    wow. i believe this article dumbed down my entire life just by looking at it.

    0% chance that we would pick a QB to actually try and start or even back up the back up.
    wait, 0% is too high. i would go more around the absolute 0 level.

    I actually wouldn't mind Freeman, but as a first round pick we have much more pressing needs.
