With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there’s still the same intrigue. Here’s a look at some of the AFC South Draft Notes. 

Draft Notes: Jacksonville Jaguars

Draft Notes: Indianapolis Colts

  • Colts hold seven picks, but none in the first round after trading their 2020 away as part of the DeForest Buckner deal. They have two seconds (34, 44).
  • Indy filled the void left by Andrew Luck‘s retirement by signing 38-year-old free agent Philip Rivers. Jacoby Brissett, the starter last year, will be the backup. But coach Frank Reich said recently, “We are always looking hard at the quarterbacks.” So the team may draft one as well.
  • Colts may focus on offense in the draft, considering the addition of Buckner as well as DT Sheldon Day, and CBs Xavier Rhodes and T.J. Carrie.
  • Needs: WR, QB, TE, S.

Draft Notes: Tennessee Titans

  • Titans hold just six picks, only one in the top-50 and neither a fourth nor a sixth rounder. 
  • Picking No. 29 overall is the latest Tennessee’s selected since 2008, when they last won the AFC South title.
  • After signing QB Ryan Tannehill to a four-year, $118 million deal, it’s unlikely the Titans go for a QB early. They’re more likely to go the best-player-available route.
  • NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has Tennessee taking Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk with pick No. 29.
  • Needs: CB, OT, WR, DL, IOL, K.
