A team from the AFC South won the Super Bowl last season (Colts) and this division had three teams in the 2007 playoffs (Colts, Jaguars and Titans). What can these teams do to return to the postseason in the 2008 season? Scouts Inc. runs down five glaring needs per team, because it's never too early to worry about next season.

Houston Texans

Cornerback -- The Texans made progress last year, but still have more than their share of needs. It can be argued as to what should be at the top of the list, but cornerback is clearly an area that must be addressed. Dunta Robinson came into his own last year, but he is recovering from a serious knee injury and could miss a significant amount of time in 2008. Fred Bennett did show promise as a rookie, but there is no denying the Texans' obvious need at corner. This secondary has made very few big plays in the passing game and another first-round-caliber playmaker at cornerback would go a long way.
