Default AFC South Draft Grades

2012 1 1 1 1 Andrew Luck QB Stanford
2 2 2 34 Coby Fleener TE Stanford
3 3 1 64 Dwayne Allen TE Clemson
4 3 29 92 T.Y. Hilton WR Florida International
5 5 1 136 Josh Chapman DT Alabama
6 5 35 170 Vick Ballard RB Mississippi State
7 6 36 206 LaVon Brazill WR Ohio
8 7 1 208 Justin Anderson T Georgia
9 7 7 214 Tim Fugger DE Vanderbilt
10 7 46 253 Chandler Harnish QB Northern Illinois

Overview: The colts got the prize of the draft in Luck, and got a solid-yet overrated TE in Fleener. Allen in the 3rd was solid value, but that selection could have been better utilized with helping the outside WR's, offensive line or building the defense. I don't really see anybody that will make a difference past Josh Chapman in the 5th, and that may not be this year. Fugger will likely add some special teams depth though. Grade: B-

2012 1 1 5 5 Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State
2 2 6 38 Andre Branch DE Clemson
3 3 7 70 Bryan Anger P California
4 5 7 142 Brandon Marshall LB Nevada
5 6 6 176 Mike Harris DB Florida State
6 7 21 228 Jeris Pendleton DT Ashland

Overview: The jaguars moved up for a WR that has some questions on how he can translate to the NFL. I really like Branch and think he's good value at that selection. Punters can be found anywhere, and shouldn't be drafted until the 5th round at least. Overall, I see 3 people in this draft that will contribute for the Jags, but the first two are serious bust risk. Marshall and Harris could add depth. Grade: C-

2012 1 1 26 26 Whitney Mercilus DE Illinois
2 3 5 68 Devier Posey WR Ohio State
3 3 13 76 Brandon Brooks G Miami (OH)
4 4 4 99 Ben Jones C Georgia
5 4 26 121 Keshawn Martin WR Michigan State
6 4 31 126 Jared Crick DT Nebraska
7 5 26 161 Randy Bullock K Texas A&M
8 6 25 195 Nick Mondek T Purdue

Overview: The Texans took a bit of a surprise in Mercilus, and most feel this was a bit of a reach. I can understand why they did this, Barwin is a FA after this year, but he did have 11.5 sacks last season. Mercilus will probably be a lot like Anthony Spencer from Dallas, decent but nothing spectacular. Many consider it to be a little high for Posey ,but I think it was a good selection. Brooks was good value at that selection, but I wonder how he is going to fit into Houstons offense, maybe a move to RT in is the works? Jones and Crick were solid selections at that point. Overall, I could see them getting good production from this class, but no stars from it. Grade: C

2012 1 1 20 20 Kendall Wright WR Baylor
2 2 20 52 Zach Brown LB North Carolina
3 3 19 82 Mike Martin DT Michigan
4 4 20 115 Coty Sensabaugh DB Clemson
5 5 10 145 Taylor Thompson TE Southern Methodist
6 6 20 190 Markelle Martin DB Oklahoma State
7 7 4 211 Scott Solomon DE Rice

The Titans got a solid playmaker on the outside, a LBer and DT that fits their scheme perfect. Sensabaugh and Thompson are athletic projects. Martin and Solomon have a chance to make the team and contribute. Overall: The Titans are going to see immediate production from Wright, Brown, Martin and Sensabaugh will have a chance in packages. Thompson, Martin and Solomon all will have the opportunity to add depth at positions that are relatively thin and/or that contribute on special teams. Grade: B+
