Featured User Mocks: AFC South
Here are a couple disclaimers on these mocks before you read them:
1) This is for FUN! And a tribute and thank you to all of you that have been using On the Clock to create your own mock drafts! So we decided to pick some of our favorites. So this is not what we are predicting will happen, just showing some good things you GMs out there were able to do with On the Clock!
2) People used various big boards so the rankings will change. Again, anything can happen in the NFL Draft but you will see players in various places on these mocks because different big boards were used.
3) Its not the same mock draft for all 32 teams. Why do you see the same player going 3 times in a division? Because these are 32 different simulations run, therefore a player can go to various teams depending on how their draft played out.
Enjoy and see Steve’s analysis on this division’s mock drafts below!

-This is a good mock for the Texans and it could be a very realistic scenario as they trade back here with the Falcons so Atlanta can land Clowney. The Texans end up with Manziel in this mock and Houston would be probably quite happy to keep him in state. Throughout the rest of the mock the Texans add a number of quality defenders so J.J. Watt doesn’t have to do it alone. On offense they mainly add depth, but they still land some nice prospects.
-This is a another trade back scenario, as the Jaguars move back in the first round, pick up some extra picks and actually trade up a bit in the 2nd round to land their quarterback. Aaron Donald has impact defensive lineman written all over him and coach Gus Bradley will find some way to utilize his skill set. Carr was a quarterback that the Jags had at the Senior Bowl, as are a couple of their other picks in this draft. Overall Jacksonville lands a very balanced draft with offensive and defensive talent and quality depth.
-The Colts don’t have a 1st so they trade back in this mock to add some extra picks to increase their depth. Indianapolis doesn’t have a lot of needs, but they could definitely use some defensive help and offensive line depth and that is exactly what they target in this mock. They might not have any impact players, but they increased their talent level with this draft class.
-The Titans are moving to a 3-4 system and they could use a quality edge rusher to become the focal point of that defense. That is where Anthony Barr comes in as he can thrive in that role and be a double digit sack artist. In the 2nd round the Titans replace Chris Johnson with a quality back. In the 4th round Tennessee gets a quarterback option in case Jake Locker isn’t the answer. After that they find some nice depth picks.
