Off Season moves impact on ex-Buckeyes in the AFC South

By Bill Smith


            Mitchell, Brandon CB Mitchell was at the end of the depth chart last year.  But the Texans drafted CB Antwaun Molden in the second round and picked up Jimmy Williams who did not play in 07.  There are some questions hanging over the Texan's back line.  Starter CB Dunta Robinson is coming back from injury.  Bottom line is Mitchell will have to show a lot in the preseason or he may be looking for work at cut time.


            Gonzalez, Anthony  WR Gonzo is the most likely to replace Harrison as the starter opposite Wayne.  Harrison is going to be used probably as the 3rd receiver to keep him healthy for the entire year.  Gonzo has proven to be a reliable WR with great hands and precise routes.

            Hall, Roy WR  The biggest advantage that Hall has is the combination of size (6-3 240) and speed.  The Colts have lost their 2nd and 3rd TEs to FA.  Hall has a chance to work some at that position as well as WR.

            Pitcock, Quinn DT Brock and Johnson figure to be the starters, but Quinn played well the last half of the 07 season and should be part of the DT rotation.

            Smith, Antonio CB 1y Smith will have a struggle just making the team.  Last year he was at the bottom of the depth chart.  There have been no additions in the CB position so he has a chance if he continues to develop.

Jacksonville – No ex-Buckeyes.


            Nickey, Donnie S Nickey was active for all 16 games last year.  There has been a lot of turmoil in the Titan backfield but most of it happened at CB.  Hope and Griffin are the 3rd best safety pair according to the Sporting News.   Nickey will have to compete with Cris Carr, the RFA from Oakland and last year backup SS Calvin Lowry.
