RTC: Colts seek a big run stuffer

Reading the coverage…

Houston Texans

Linebacker Bradie James feels like the Texans give him the best chance to go out with a bang, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. James looks like a smart veteran addition to me.

Nick Scurfield of the team’s website ties into the National Football Posts positional draft analysis. This time it’s at nose tackle.

This draft will be an interesting philosophical test for the Texans, says Nate Dunlevy of Blaecher Report.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts will likely use the draft to add a big run stuffer to the middle of their defensive line, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

NFL analysts are concerned about the supporting cast Luck will take the field with, says Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Gene Smith remains steadfast about drafting a player and not worrying about where he went to school, says Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

Ganguli chronicles the ends to which scouts will go to see a player.

The league is looking to add more drama to draft pick announcements, says Vito Stellino of the T-U.

The Jaguars are likely engaged in smoke screening, says Adam Stites of Big Cat Country.

Tennessee Titans

A year after the lockout prevented offseason work with a new staff, the Titans commence their offseason program today, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Ruston Webster’s stress relief as he heads into his first draft as GM comes from knowing he’s done his homework, and he has quality scouts around him, says Wyatt.

Drafting 12 spots later than last year, it’s much harder for the Titans to foresee what will unfold ahead of them, says David Boclair of the Nashville City Paper.
