Matthews lone rep on all first-round team

It wouldn’t have been hard to predict the AFC South names connected to ESPN.com’s all-time first-round draft team.

Just one player made the offense or defense: Oilers-Texans offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, now an assistant coach for the Texans, is a starter at guard.

His close friend, Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak, was one of the players mentioned for consideration in the group behind him.

Also earning consideration: Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison and Baltimore Colts guard Jim Parker.

Nobody even made the mentions for defense.
