I like it too because I already use another forum like this. It will also be better when they stretch the post boxes to cover the entire screen, enable avatars, and get a nice skin/background.

Refreshing so much is bothering me some through........

http://www.volnation.com/forum/When i clicked on team discussion i had to refresh, then when i went into the Titans selection i had to refresh and then when i went into this thread i had to refresh it again. On the old forums i would just half to refresh the home page of the forums to update everything.

Hmmm, I don't have to do that. Some setting of yours has to be messed up, I don't know what it would be though. Maybe make a thread about it in Off Topic and someone might know. Or post about it in the "Problems" thread.

Now that the defensive lineman have done their drills today, I really wanna see how the DB's do tomorrow. There's a few guys there that have a chance to blaze the 40. We might also have a chance at a couple of those in the 2nd-3rd rounds. Hell, depending on how the Pacman situation comes out, I wouldn't be surprised if we looked at it in the first.

I'm really hoping Corner doesn't become a first round need over DE and WR, we have so many holes to fill this draft and Free Agency is weak. Also do you know if we have the Bolts 6th and 7th round picks for Volek, and why do we have the Colts 6th and 7th round picks this draft?:confused:

The good thing for the Titans is that our biggest needs are DE, WR, & CB; and those just happen to be the deepest positions in this draft from top-to-bottom.

I think we got 6th rounder for Billy Volek, but I'm not 100% sure. As far as the Colts' picks go, I don't know...did we trade them Rocky Boiman or something???

I'm counting on Pacman NOT being with the team this year (either because of suspensions, jail-time, or a trade). The new GM is supposedly a big proponent of high-character guys and Pacman doesn't fit that bill at all. Plus, Fisher's got to be getting tired of Pacman's offseason antics. The bad thing is that the Titans won't get anything close to market-value in a trade...best they could probably get is a 3rd rounder, IMO, since other teams know that we don't really have any leverage.

All of that means that signing Clements or trading for Bly becomes a bigger priority, since nobody wants a rookie CB and Reynaldo Hill as our starters. That would be disastrous...

TitanHope
02-26-2007, 07:01 PM
If we get Clements, Pac is expendable. Though I'd much rather keep Pac than trade him for a 3rd. We can maybe get a 2nd for him, due to his CB and PR talents.

I think we traded Rocky Calmus to the Colts for their pick(s)...

Pit Bull #53
02-26-2007, 07:59 PM
There are plenty of rumors that we are in the group of front runners for Clements. I think Michael Smith said it's us, the Saints, and the Browns.

This is taken from the other thread as I think it fits in this topic more.

Here's my realistic wishlist for the draft.

1. Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
2. Josh Wilson, CB, Maryland
3. Ikaika Alama-Francis, DE/DT, Hawaii
4. Brian Robison, DE, Texas
4. John Wendling, S, Wyoming
5. Steve Smith, WR, USC
6. Chase Johnson, OT, Wyoming
6. Dan Santucci, OG, Notre Dame
6. Garrett Wolfe, RB, Northen Illinois
7. Uche Nwaneri, OG, Purdue
7. Jared Zabransky, QB, Boise State
7. Isiah Stanback, QB/WR, Washington

Thoughts?

Btw, if any of you have read the recent Titansradio blurb, Chow sounds like he's really pushing for a WR. Here are his exact comments:

"We need two more [receivers]," Chow told The Tennessean. ''Whether we get them through free agency or through the draft, that's critical for us.''
''I know the Titans maybe had a philosophy where they didn't take them early, take them in the first part of the second day," Chow told The Tennessean. ''We try to make a good evaluation and whoever we take, you need to put him right in; they need to start playing.''

I like the majority of them, only thing is personal differences (not a big Jarrett fan). Love Brian Robison. I think Steve Smith may have moved up with his forty time. I'm a fan of Josh Wilson also. Also think Wolfe could fit well for us, though if we can't get Henry's contract settled, then I think RB jumps up a little on the need chart....unless we resign Chris Brown, which I'm not opposed to.

What about trading Pacman and our 1st round pick for Detroits 1st rounder, and get Calvin Johnson?

What about trading Pacman and our 1st round pick for Detroits 1st rounder, and get Calvin Johnson?

I think I posted something about this earlier, but to move up from #19 to #2 is really difficult.

Looking at the draft-value-chart (which alot of GMs use in evaluating trades), it would take something like our 1st rounder this year, our 1st rounder next year, PacMan, AND a 2nd or 3rd rounder to move up to #2. I don't have the chart in front of me at the moment, but I'm pretty sure that it's very close to that.

Basically, it would be a pretty pricey move...

Pit Bull #53
02-28-2007, 12:17 PM
Yeah, you can basically put to rest the trading up for CJ ideas...it's a pipe dream at this point. A team with as many holes as we have can't just be trading away the future for 1 player.

So, back to what I posted earlier, sounds like Chow is really pulling for a WR. My personal preference at #19 is Dwayne Bowe if he's there, like I've been saying all along. I think his skill set would go great with VY, and help alleviate some of his accuracy problems. Bowe dominates the middle of the field, and VY likes throwing there. He's also the most physical receiver in this draft, something we lack, and he can use his big body to shield defenders. I think he would work good against a defense like the Colts, since their coverages guard against deep plays, let him work the underneath routes and the middle of the field, and use his strength to break through tackles. I'd like a receiving group of

WR - Dwayne Bowe
WR - Brandon Jones
Slot - Bobby Wade

And then hope that Troupe gets his mind right on the field, with Scaife as another good receiving option.

I think that could be a pretty solid WR core--especially if Troupe shows ANYTHING at all this season.

One question:
Have you heard anything about Jonathan Orr???

I was pretty high on him when the Titans drafted him last season; and I thought that he'd get a chance to show off his speed last season but I never heard anything regarding him. With our need for a deep-threat, I wonder if he could get a chance this season in that deep-threat role...

If not, then I wouldn't mind the Titans taking a WR in the 1st or 2nd round and then a speedster late in the draft--just somebody who can stretch DEFs vertically...

Hey guys, i'm new here and just thought i'd give my two cents. I think that wr and de are the titans biggest needs, pretty sire most will agree with that. What do you guys think of the possibility of the titans using there 19 pick on one of those and then possibly packaging some picks to move back up into the end of round one to take the position of the two that they didnt take with the 19 pick. i know f.reese was conservative about trading up but do you guys think reinfeldt might be more aggressive?

This offseason, I would like to see us make a push for nate clements, with our shocking 2nd corner and a possibility of no Pacman next year it would be good to pick up his ability and experience

Also I would love for us to make a push at trading for Jared Allen, signing patrick Kerney, or spending a packet on bringing in dwight freeney. We have alot of cap room and someone of his age and his ability would be an incredible pick up, i dont care how much of a push it is.

In the first round i really want us to push for Amobi Okoye or quinn Pitcock in the second.

The above two should really solidify a very pourus line, and with the keith bulluck playing off dwight freeneys ass, i dont see alot of teams having fun.

if we go for a DT in the first i would like to see us go for Sidney Rice or if he drops to us Steve smith. If we go reciever in the first then i really dont like the look of Jarrett and would prefer Meachem.

BUT the ultimate thing i would love to see is if he is there at 50, we go for michael bush, i think that would be an incredibly good pick up for us, he is an incredible talent and a steal at 50. But i would only really like to see this if we lose henry and chris brown doesnt hang about.

We're gonna need to get a DT if Robaire doesn't re-sign with us. Randy Starks hasn't done a damn thing since his rookie year, and it shows that we tendered him at a lower level than Eugene Amano. We're gonna need to bring someone in if Robaire isn't back.

When he runs over that Arkansas linebacker....that gets me pumped up...please FO Draft Bowe!!!

Pit Bull #53
03-04-2007, 08:58 PM
I guess I should restate what I said. I want Bowe IF we decide to go after a WR in rd. 1.

If the decision were being made by me, I take the top rated DL on the board, and wait on WR until round 2 and get a guy like Craig Davis. The problem with this is, with the Pac situation, we may potentially be in dire need of a CB, and getting one in the mid rounds is far from a sure thing, as we've seen (Tony Beckham, Rich Gardner, Michael Waddell). So that may be bumped up.

But, if we don't take a WR early, or acquire one in FA, then our current starting WR's are Brandon Jones (which I am fine with).....and Roydell Williams/Courtney Roby/Jonathan Orr (which I am NOT). And if we don't take a DL and take WR and CB in 1 and 2, then we are forced to start LaBoy/Odom again unless we sign Kevin Carter. And then, if the Pac situation isn't resolved and we don't draft a corner and instead go for DL and WR in 1 and 2, we will be starting Reynaldo and Finnegan.

Granted, some things need to be worked out with regards to Pac, and some things have to play out in FA with who we bring in at these positions, but we could potentially be in a real bind with what direction to go.

I've been hinting at this since last season ended, but I think the people predicting playoffs in 2007 are in for a rude awakening. We have alot of holes to fill and it's gonna take more than 1 offseason.

PacMan_32
03-04-2007, 09:15 PM
I really dont think pacman is going to be gone to be honest.....and if he is 2nd round we can get a good CB like Eric Wright

Wide reciever is more important in the development of Vince....our recievers right now will only stunt his growth...Bowe will help him out....1st round WR we will probly go

MicktheGreat
03-04-2007, 10:31 PM
If we sign Kevin Carter (which I think there's a good chance that we will), what position do you guys think he'll play??? Personally, I think he'll play most of his time at DT rather than DE, where he could provide some pass-rushing on the interior line.

Right now, we have glaring needs at:
DE, WR, DT, & CB

And moderate needs at:
RB, MLB, & S

We REALLY need to address a couple of those glaring needs in FA--whether that means bringing in DE Kearney or CB Harper or DT Ian Scott or WR Stallworth or whoever...I don't know.

Here's one thing I was wondering as far as the WR position...
What about Darrell Jackson??? He's apparently unhappy with Seahawks ownership, and the Seahawks are said to be openly gauging interest from other teams in terms of a draft-pick trade. Jackson obviously has ties with our new GM, and he's a legit #1 WR. The only questions are whether his beef with the Seahawks' brass includes Reinfeldt AND what the asking price would be in a trade. The Seahawks are without a 1st rounder (from the Deion Branch trade), and we could maybe get DJ for our 2nd rounder. Just something to consider...

Pit Bull #53
03-04-2007, 11:43 PM
The Darrell Jackson idea has definately been floated around recently. I guess the only problem I have with it is that he drops even more balls than Bennett did. He's been very productive though. Three 1,000 yard seasons. However we get it, we need another WR. Problem is, like you said, we also need another DE, DT and CB.

I'd like to see us do something like packaging some of our mid-round picks to move up and get an additional 2nd round pick, then use the first three picks on the best available WR, CB, and DE.

Maybe make out of it with guys like

1. Bowe
2. Eric Wright
2. Tim Crowder

or

1. Chris Houston
2. Craig Davis
3. Josh Wilson/David Irons

or

1. Moss
2. Aaron Ross
2. Jason Hill

Anyway, I'm just throwing names out for the sake of combinations. Idk, just kinda floating ideas

I really like your thinking here. Bowe is a physical guy, and the Titans need some of that. Those three WR could be a good threat for VY along with the TEs.

I'd prefer Sidney Rice, but I know since it has become the fad on this site to undervalue him, I won't try to convince anyone. I would love Meachem too, but my guess is he will be gone.

Bowe isn't a bad option either, but he isn't going to stretch the field much at all. I wouldn't be unhappy with him

but i would prefer if we drafted him in the 2nd if he was there and i would like to see us trade up and try and push for okoye im so high on this guy i really think he can be a kind of tommie harris type player if he really lives up to his athletic potential and we really could do with that, it would then take alot of pressure off the need for a GREAT DE

but i doubt that will happen

I wanted to bump this back up to talk about something, specifically the RB position.

I've been looking at alot of mocks lately, and am seeing Kenny Irons available for our 3rd round pick. He didn't last quite that long in Scott's, but there's a chance that he could. Me, personally, I would jump all over that pick. Maybe even package one of our 2nd day picks to move up a little in the 3rd. I think we definately need a #2 RB to go with LenDale, and we currently only have Quinton Ganther. We are still very much a run first team and will be as long as Fisher is here. I think Irons would be perfect for the #2 role...his body wouldn't wear down from overloaded carries, and he could start occasionally if anything happened to LenDale. He is pretty fast and quick, and still runs with authority. Thoughts?

I know I'm partial because I am a bulldog fan, but I would love see the Titans take a flyer on Danny Ware on the second day. He has a ton of talent and I think could be a very solid #2 back behind Lendale

Ware didn't play much, right? I remember him making some plays, seemed like they were hard running plays.

Ware had his greatest rushing total in his freshman year. Carries and yards went down incremently the next 2 years. He's got good size, but I think we really need a more proven guy as our #2. I see Ware as maybe a developmental guy as a #3, or a guy you'd allocate to NFL Europe. In LenDale's first year, he didn't show to be overly durable...maybe that changes, but I'd get more of a "sure" guy to be the #2. Just for the record, I don't think Irons will be available at our 3rd round pick after his good showing at the combine (good 40 and good short shuttle), but I wouldn't say it's impossible, so it's something to think about.

We are bringing in Dwayne Jarrett for a visit. I've been a little lukewarm on him for a little while, I think I had him ranked just behind CJ, Bowe, Meach, and Ginn. I guess I wouldn't be opposed to taking him. He does have amazing hands and is a terror in the red zone....but it would make it alot easier if he ran in the mid - 4.5s

i dont like dwayne bowe and i never had. as for safety in the 2nd we just signed one so now we have 4 safeties capable of starting. thomas could be great though. he was ranked as one of the top linemen before he got in trouble.

id like to get jarrett in the 1st round. even though he ran a 4.62 at combine he proved on the field at usc he doesnt need speed to catch for 100+ yards. i have high hopes for brandon jones

Pit Bull #53
03-29-2007, 02:11 PM
I'd rather not on Meriweather and Thomas. Regardless of how serious you think their character issues are, I don't think this is a team that can afford to take ANY risk on guys that have questions. We need more guys like VY and Ahmard Hall and less guys like Adam Jones and Albert Haynesworth.

And I also think we need to take a RB on day 1, unless we sign someone. I'd even package a 3rd and one of our extra 4ths to move up a little and grab Kenny Irons if he falls to the early 3rd. Or maybe just draft Lorenzo Booker

I'm also loving the talk of Jamaal Anderson and Alan Branch both falling. I don't anticipate either one being available for us, but I would love it if either one were. Assuming neither do, I'd like to go:

1. Robert Meachem (or Dwayne Bowe, whichever is available)
2. Tim Crowder (one of my favorite players in this draft)
3. Kenny Irons (in a possible trade up, or stay put and take Booker)
4. Best CB available, I don't know who'd be left...Bennett? Jackson?

I think that would be a good draft for us.

Personally, I have Bowe ranked slightly ahead of Meachem but not by much. Crowder would give us a run-stuffing DE that we desperately need--my only worry is that Crowder will be picked before our 2nd pick. I'd be happy if we got Crowder/C.Johnson/Abimiri with that 2nd pick (probably in that order of preference). Again, I'd be happy with either Irons or Booker, as I think both have running styles that would be nice compliments to LenDale.

In what round we pick CB in this draft is a real wild-card, IMO. I could see us picking a CB anywhere from rounds 2-5. The Nick Harper signing gives us some flexibility; and luckily, this draft is VERY deep at CB (with what looks like a number of potential starters to be found in rounds 3-5).

1. Ted Ginn Jr./Robert Meachem/Dwayne Bowe(Assuming Anderson or Carriker aren't there)

Yeah, Jarrett has big arms. They won't do any good if the ball doesn't make it to him though. I'm very worried about his ability to separate in the NFL. I'm not opposed to dropping down and taking him (and definitely in the second if he falls to us there), but I don't like taking him at 19. I just don't see the value.

I agree, there's no question in my mind that he can play and possibly dominate vs. zone coverage and off man coverage. My question with Jarrett is whether or not he can separate vs. press man when he's got a CB on his hip pocket.

I agree that the Titans need a DE; but I think both Jarvis Moss or Quentin Moses would be bad picks for us, as both are weak against the run (and I think we need a good run-stuffing DE, so we can correctly utilize LaBoy's skill-set on 3rd downs).

I like the Pittman pick IF we don't sign Dillon or get Turner. However, if we get Dillon or Turner, I think the RB need gets pushed back to late rounds.

If Terrell Brown's stock is dropping because of "off-the-field" issues, the Titans will probably avoid him like the plague. The last thing they need is another CB with "off-the-field" issues...

What would be the odds of us trading down with Atlanta?

I've been thinking about trading out of #19, maybe into the second round, but only if we get two 2nd round picks out of the deal. Atlants is the only team with more than one 2nd rounders. So, I did the math, and there's about a 100 point difference on the trade chart, and the Titans get the better deal. So maybe we throw in our 4th rounder this year, a pick next year, or even a player.

But anyway, say Atlanta misses out on Laron Landry. They pick up a DE instead, and it comes to our pick and Reggie Nelson is still on the board (Or any other situation takes place that would intrigue Atlanta into trading up: Okoye falling? They take Landry and Jamaal Anderson is still on the board? Whatever). Do you think it would be a good idea to trade down with them for their 2 second rounders for our 1st round pick and a 4th round pick/future pick/player?

To me, this would probably be the best option. Definitely more so than trading up for a player, but I think both aren't likely. So this is just a pipe dream, but still. Its nice to think. I'd rather have a draft that went:

1st Rounder: Traded
2nd Rounder(a): Sidney Rice
2nd Rounder(b): Charles Johnson
2nd Rounder(c): DeMarcus Tyler
3rd Rounder: Fred Bennett

Than lets say, as Scott has it currently:

1st Rounder: Robert Meachem
2nd Rounder: Eric Wright
3rd Rounder: Antonio Pittman

Anyway, even though its highly unlikely, its nice to come up with dream scenarios...

When the 30th pick came up, our manager wrote a name down and handed me the paper, I turned it over and it said.............................................. ....Sidney Rice. Then I woke up.

Went into work this morning (for real), and when I was about to leave on my lunch break, the phone rang, so I ran back to answer it, and on the caller ID it said...........Rice, Sidney. I swear to god. Only it was a woman. But the point still remains, lol.

So I got off work at about 3:00 and as I was driving home I turned on Sirius NFL Radio, and on the Afternoon Blitz they were just setting up an interview with an NFL Prospect. It was.........................Sidney Rice. And in the interview he mentioned meeting with Tennessee and Jeff Fisher.

Just to add a little to that dream, that is actually what I want us to do.

Trade #19 and a 3rd to SD for Michael Turner and #30.

Draft the best available WR at #30, I would be fine with any (Ginn, Meach, Bowe, Jarrett, Rice)

In the 2nd, draft the best DE available (Charles Johnson, Abiamiri, Crowder, Woodley, Moses). If no good value, take the best CB or DT.

We also have two 4ths that we could package to move up to the beginning of the 4th/end of the 3rd if there's a player there that we like. If not, we could add some depth at OL (Loper had a lacerated spleen last year, not sure what his status is, could use some young depth on the interior also) and on the OL and CB depending on who we take in 2.

That's my opinion anyway

I'd rather have Bowe or Meachem over Ginn.

IMO, Ginn could be a good #2 WR in the NFL; but he'll never be a team's primary receiving option. Bowe & Meachem (because of their blend of size, strength, speed, attitude, etc.) can become long-term #1 WR options. And I think that the special-teams boost that Ginn would provide is a bit overrated. Talented special-teamers and return men can be found in the mid-to-late rounds. In my opinion, in the first round, you can't afford to take a one-dimensional, inferior pass-catching WR (Ginn) just because he can catch kickoffs.

And again...I HATE the 2nd round pick of Eric Wright. He's got talent, but some MAJOR off-the-field problems (including rape accusations and possible drug connections). The last thing the Titans need is another talented but troubled CB. I'd much rather wait and draft Josh Wilson, Fred Bennett, Michael Coe, or Jonathan Wade later.

I prefer Meachem and Bowe to Ginn too, but I'm really warming to the idea of Ginn. He gives our STs an instant boost, especially this year, when Pacman is gone. He also stretches the field. Even if you don't think he's the next Randy Moss (another thin WR), he could mimic Moss's ability to make an offense better. With the Vikings, Moss could just run a go route, and half the defense would head his way. That opens up holes. Ginn HAS to be respected out there. You just can't ignore him, and every time he touches the ball, he can get 20+yards.

I have a new scenario.

What if we draft DE or CB in the first round -- say, Jamaal Anderson, Jarvis Moss, or Chris Houston. Then, use our extra fourth round pick and maybe another late pick to move up into the top of the second round to take Dwayne Jarrett.

Here is what our first four rounds could look like (if we catch some luck):

1. Jamaal Anderson
2. Dwayne Jarrett
3. Kenny Irons
4. Jonathan Wade

If we could find a way to use our extra fourth rounder as well as our 5-7 rounders to accomplish this, I would be fine with the idea of only drafting four players. I know this is highly unlikely to happen, but I never would have thought we could have traded DOWN last year and landed LenDale White, who is going to be a one thousand yard rusher very soon.

i dont think jonathan wade will be there in the fourth. some mock drafts ive seen even have him going in the end of the first round but i think its more likely he could be gone by the end of the second. But, if it somehow worked out like that or we could lorenzo booker instead of irons i would be pretty happy.

I really don't want to take a RB in the first round except if its Adrian Petereson, I do not want M. Lynch. I would rather get WR or CB. I will be pissed if the titans pick up this RB

It's possible we would take Lynch, but not likely. He really is a top notch talent, but I think he is a terrible interview (on Sirius he was, anyway). I don't know if that would affect the Titans decision. We definitely need to draft a RB, so if there is no value other than Lynch, I could see it happening.

However, I think it's far more likely that we will wait on RB until at least round three. Booker is a popular choice for us, if he lasts that long. I'm not sure he will...I see him going in the late second. Waiting until round 6 to get Ramonce Taylor would be nice, too.

Here is what our first four rounds could look like (if we catch some luck):

1. Jamaal Anderson
2. Dwayne Jarrett
3. Kenny Irons
4. Jonathan Wade

I would love to have that draft, we would fill many needs with those players who i feel are all very talented. I really like Wade, he was a stud at UT, if he was there in the 4th which I doubt he will be, he would be the steal of the draft

Ewing
04-28-2007, 02:56 PM
We can land a better receiver in round two than we can a safety. This pick makes a lot of sense. Also, there's a chance we might trade him to San Diego for their pick and Michael Turner. If not, then I welcome Michael Griffin.

TitanHope
04-28-2007, 02:57 PM
I actually like this pick. I like Griffin a lot, but since our needs were mostly at DE,WR, and CB, I thought the chance of us picking him were slim. I totally didn't see this coming, especially with Meachem on the board. Could Vince Young have possibly had a hand in this?

He's an awesome special teamer, and is stout against the run. He will not only help our secondary, but also our run defense. It gives us a great young safety tandem for the next few years also. Not to mention he's a good character guy, and will be a defensive leader.

Mel Kiper mention him in the same sentence as Ronnie Lott... I think it was a comparison.

Alright, I'm back from the Nats game and I'm very pissed off. First off, Chris Henry isn't even close to being worth second round value. The fact that we picked him with Steve Smith still on the board makes no sense. Second, who the **** is Paul Williams!? Why would we pick him when Charles Johnson from Georgia is still on the board!? God ****ing damnit.

Cashmoney
04-28-2007, 11:01 PM
Not to mention Jonathan Wade and Johnnie Lee Higgins were still on the board. Paul Williams has 8 career TDs. 8! And i completely disagree with Henry having potential. He's nothing but a workout warrior. He wasn't even going to be drafted probably before his workouts. Plus he sucks in pass protection and is gonna get Vince killed. If I wanted a running back that got 3 yards a carry I wouldve just called eddie george out of retirement.

TitanHope
04-29-2007, 12:45 AM
Well, I'm disappointed. I like the Griffin pick, even though Meachem was on the board. And, Griffin at 19 may have been a reach. The Chris Henry pick was absolutely terrible. I can name 10 other players I would rather have. I mean horrible. Not to mention, he was a HUGE reach. Talking about falling in love with potential. And we take another RB in the 2nd...ugh. Paul Williams was acceptable, but when you see that Charles Johnson was still there, it becomes another bad pick. I understand he has great potential, but to get a DE of that value THAT late. How could a competant man pass it up? On a day that we could have had Griffin, Steve Smith, and Charles Johnson, WITHOUT TRADING AT ALL, we got Griffin, Henry, and Williams. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

But, looking at the positive, there are some quality players left. Fred Bennett and Tanard Jackson are still there. Brandon Siler may be interesting. So would Antonio Pittman, if we hadn't wasted our 2nd on Henry.

Do you guys think, realistically, Mike Reinfeldt can lose his job from this? He did absolutely nothing in Free Agency, and now orchestrated, so far, one of the worst drafts in the league this year. Houston's GM lost his job last year for passing up Reggie Bush, even though Houston had a good draft as a whole. I'd be worried if I were Mike.

houstons GM wasn't fired for passing on Bush. He was leaving the organization after the draft anyways which made no since to me at the time because i don't understand the point of letting someone pick youre personnel if they have nothing to lose by making bad choices.

TitanHope
04-29-2007, 01:13 AM
That'd be fine with me, Ewing.

The Chris Henry doesn't bug me that horribly much. As a boom or bust pick. If he booms, he's the next Larry Johnson. If he busts, we have LenDale to fall back on. So I can understand the pick, as its major reward, little risk. And I read an article on TitansOnline about him that helped explain the pick to me. But to pass on all the other talent was unfortunate.

Its the Paul Williams pick that really makes me mad. To pass on Charles Johnson and Tank Tyler...hell, even Fred Bennett and Tanard Jackson would have been good picks, were absolutely unacceptable. Paul Williams apparently used to be a CB, and actually wants to play that position, a lot like Ted Ginn allegedly. I don't want Tyrone Calico 2.0.

But if these 2 players pan out well, and they have the potential to, this is an outstanding draft. But that is a big IF!

TitanHope
04-29-2007, 01:15 AM
Houston's GM "resigned" after the draft. I always figured it was because he passed up on Reggie Bush AND Vince Young, since, as you said, it'd be stupid to let a guy be in charge of your entire draft, and him them leave shortly afterwards.

OzTitan
04-29-2007, 04:19 AM
Williams played CB in HS from what I understand, and played WR all the time in Fresno State. He said he has no interest in CB. And I'm not sure what Tyrone Calico has anything to do with it, I don't want Andre Woolfolk 2.0 or Busty McBust 2.0 for any of those other positions either - not sure how that's meant to be a direct knock on Williams.

BTW, I highly doubt Charley Casserly (the ex-Texans GM) made the pick, I'm pretty sure he would have known his fate before the draft. The Texans weren't comfortable with Bush's USC issues and Mario could be had for cheaper. I firmly believe it was an owner decision much like VY apparently was for the Titans.

OzTitan
04-29-2007, 04:48 AM
Anyway, here's my take on our apparent "reaches".

First of all, I don't consider a pick to be a real reach unless there's a good chance he will still be there by the team's next pick. Griffin, no way. Henry? I don't think so, he said himself he was being told mid-late 2nd and possibly very early 3rd. Williams - I doubt it, 4-5 or so WR's went before our 3rd pick. The WR pool was drained, no way he would have lasted the 30 or so picks to our 4th.

Therefore, right off the bat, I don't really consider any of them as major reaches. Now, could we have traded back 10 or so spots and still got them? Probably, but first of all trading takes another team interested in trading up which is not something you can create on demand, plus we're not in a position to lose players we consider to be top prospects for a 2nd day pick IMO. Fisher said there was interest for the 19th pick from the early 2nd round but Griffin wasn't going to be available there, and I don't think this draft was good enough to trade down for the hell of it and take what's left that late.

This leads into my next point - the Titans very likely drafted who was on the top of their boards. What do you want them to do, bow to mainstream opinion and not draft who tops a list they've spent months working on? Don't criticize the pick, criticize the order of the draft board if you must. The problem here is we don't know if their draft board order was wrong yet, so I don't really see why anyone should be feeling disappointed let alone devastated. I have a theory though:

Sometimes I think people grow this GM complex after spending months reading scout sites like NFLDC, and they form these deeply seeded stances on players they really don't know well at all - sure they may see them on TV etc, maybe even a lot, but that only fuels it. Us passing on Mike Williams and Derrick Johnson for Pacman Jones for instance - the only reason that wasn't treated with tremendous devastation IMO was because picking that early meant we were bound to at least get someone who had enough potential to keep the majority of outrage at bay.

I think people need to chill out and look at this with a bit of common sense - maybe the players we chose were ranked higher than the apparent 'superstars' we passed on? Wouldn't you want your GM and FO picking who they felt is best? As I said, criticize the draft board order itself, but how can we do this before they've even played a game? All you're doing now by feeling disgusted about the Titans passing on players you wanted is basically clashing your opinion of a player against that of the Titans' Front Office and that's pretty pointless if you ask me - at least this early on.

stephenson86
04-29-2007, 04:55 AM
Michael Griffin was easily the second best safety in the draft JUST behind landry, he has amazing talent and is a perfect compliment to chris hope, his senior campaign wasnt great but i know someone from the university of texas who was in the guys piano class 2 years ago and he assures me that weve picked ourselves up an amazing safety

Chris Henry, i have all the faith in the world in this kid, i see a hell of alot of potential from him and i beleive he will be carrying most of the load by the end of the season...he isnt just a work out worrior

paul williams, ive heard of this guy quite a few times as being incredibly raw, which really is his only problem. When it comes to being a receiver he has all the techniques you look for and its just the little things he needs to improve on, hes extremely raw but has endless potential is used correctly, now before you all go mad again....let me just say marques colsten to ya :)

SeanTaylorRIP
04-29-2007, 07:41 AM
I know you are all optimistic with Chris Henry as you should be and I hope he works out, but you take away his 40 time and this kid a 6th-undrafted kind of guy.

OzTitan
04-29-2007, 09:06 AM
Well that's like saying if you take away JR's arm strength he's a late 1st day pick , or take away CJ's 4.35 and he's a late 1st - Henry's speed is an integral part to his game, yes. Since when was speed a naughty word? Particularly when you're over 230lb. That speed for that size is a big deal - but naturally it isn't the end all quality much like JR's arm and CJ's speed too.

Henry was definitely drafted higher than he probably deserved but if the Titans didn't, some other team probably would have before their 3rd choice and why let someone you really like slip away like that. I don't really see anyone they passed in the 2nd that's definitely worth it over the potential of Henry myself. And lets face it, the Titans seem to need a HB - keep putting it off and you'll be left with someone with equally low production but without the same potential.

Ewing
04-29-2007, 10:38 AM
Henry is also a very immature kid which is the last thing we need at this point. We just had to deal with Pacman's **** for two years and I really don't want to have to deal with his **** now. I hope the kid does well and doesn't have any attitude problems but if you honestly think we should have taken him with Steve Smith on the board then you're insane.

Same goes with Paul Williams. With Charles Johnson staring us right in the face there was no need to take a WR/CB tweener. This new GM sucks. End of story.

I've just finished reading a good article by John Clayton on ESPN about pass rushers in the mid rounds. He makes excellent points that taking pass rushers high doesn't always work, but some mid rounders do(ex. Mark Anderson, Jason Allen, Trent Cole). I think we had a C+ day but it could get better and I am hoping that the Titans take Zak DeOssie. You can't teach physical tools, not to mention he has the smarts since he went to Brown

Pit Bull #53
04-29-2007, 11:18 AM
I like the pick of Mike Griffin. I would have rather seen another position addressed, but that's no knock on Griffin, cause I think he's a helluva player. I don't know about all this stuff that Fisher is talking about...playing him at nickel, corner, and safety. I say just stick him at safety and let him run and hit. We'd have a great safety tandem.

The Chris Henry pick I do not like. The classic boom/bust pick. If he works out, it could be a fantastic pick. If he doesn't, it will be laughed at for years. He hasn't shown that he can play on the football field, so for our sake, we better hope there were alot of other factors that played into that, and that it wasn't just because of his ability. I'll wait and see about this one, but I'm nervous about it.

Paul Williams...meh. Another pick on potential. If it works, great. But he's had problems staying healthy and staying consistent.

I do like the Leroy Harris pick. He might could be Mawae's eventual replacement.

aNYtitan
04-29-2007, 11:39 AM
Personally I would have rather liked that the Titans picked DeOssie, he just shows that he can start at MLB, if not then he could split time with Tulloch. But Harris is a solid pick, can play anywhere on the line, and like Pitbull said, eventually replace Mawae.

P.S. I didn't check out draft coverage yesterday because I was working all day, but so far who has had the best coverage. On the second day, I have to go with the NFL Network, great coverage and commentary, while ESPN seems to be solely talking about the Moss trade as well as the Trent Green trade

Leroy harris was a decent pick because he has tons of experience and started at four different positions. Chris davis i guess was pretty much drafted to be our kick returner. And until chris henry proves me wrong im going to continue to criticise that pick. Just like the mod said, this guy was gonna at best be a 6th round pick before his 40 time. Basically he's a workout warrior and i can't believe how idiotic our GM is by saying he considered taking henry in the first.

I think that was a bluff, there would be no way that he would have actually taken Henry in the first. Lets just see how he actually performs on the field with Lendale. The Titans have loaded up on WR's so far. They have Givens, Roby, Roydell, Gage, and now they have added Paul Williams and Chris Davis. I wouldn't be shocked if they took another one late. I think Davis will be strictly a return man this season

Whoops, I knew i forgot someone, I just wasn't sure, so we have seven WR's now

Not sure Joe filani was the best pick for us, i liked ben patrick. I do like the florida corner though he needs to bulk up some.

Here's our RB coach Sherman Smith on the Chris Henry pick:

(on the significance of Chris Henry not doing anything special to prepare for the combine to boost his attributes)
When I went to work the guy out I knew that his personal workout was not equal to what you saw on film, so there has to be a reason why. As Jeff said, we did our homework, talking to the coaching staff there, talking to other people. As I related to the coaches, quite clearly, the kid had the ability; it was the system that kept him from being productive. As we worked him out you could see the power, the explosion, the quickness, and the hands. Man how come you’re not playing? So I talked to the strength coach and the strength coach laid it out real clear. He said this kid put up with a lot the past three years. He kept it together. He worked hard in practice. When he got an opportunity, he did the best he could, but it was a system in which he really had to endure some hardships.
(on how he feels about him in blitz pick-up in pass coverage, responding to Chris Henry saying that he feels like he could improve in that area)
Well you know it’s interesting that he feels like that’s something that he needs to work on. Maybe he is talking about a technique or a blitz pick-up responsibility. I talked to Chris and he was very knowledgeable about their pass protection scheme and who they had. Watching him in protection, he was physical, so he shows that he is a willing blocker. I think what he is talking about is that he just wants to be a perfectionist at everything he does. He is willing, tough, smart, knows who he has, so, I don’t think that is going to be a problem at all for him in pass protection.
(on how Chris Henry differs from LenDale White)
I think Chris is definitely faster. I think LenDale definitely has some speed and some quickness, but this guy is explosive also. It’s his physical attributes. I think we are just scratching the surface of what he can be. I know the one thing that really encouraged me about him is his attitude. He reminds me of Eddie George in his approach to the game, in his approach to how he does his work, his desire to be great and also the work ethic behind wanting to be great. He does it; he doesn’t just talk about it. So this is a kid that I just think has a great career ahead of him because he is going to do what it takes and putting the work in is important to him. So I think him and LenDale run styles are different in one sense, but in a lot of areas they are very similar. I think we’ll have a good one, two punch. Like Jeff said, with Quinton, we have some backs and with the guys up front we are going to get it done in the run game and we will protect our quarterback and we will be contributing in the passing game also.
(on how LenDale will react to drafting Chris Henry)
Like I said, he has to work at it. LenDale knows that, and this is a guy is not going to wait for him. Chris is coming in here as we talked about when I was down in Arizona, he is coming here to start. He is not coming to be a back up. So his mindset is that I’m coming to win the job, and that’s what he’s going to do. And it’s LenDale’s opportunity to win the job also and Quinton’s opportunity.


And if you go here, you can hear the audio of the interview with him. He sounds very impressive, but I'm still a little nervous about the pick.

Henry is also a very immature kid which is the last thing we need at this point. We just had to deal with Pacman's **** for two years and I really don't want to have to deal with his **** now. I hope the kid does well and doesn't have any attitude problems but if you honestly think we should have taken him with Steve Smith on the board then you're insane.

Same goes with Paul Williams. With Charles Johnson staring us right in the face there was no need to take a WR/CB tweener. This new GM sucks. End of story.

What makes you say this? Nice to have a little source or something to go with your attack on Henry. So far Fisher and co have gone out of their way to say he is a character guy.

I've never heard anything bad about Henry's character. He missed a class and got suspended for a game, but that's college football. It doesn't make him a bad guy.

I think Paul Williams will be highly motivated once he gets near Young. I would have preferred Johnson myself, because I really like him at DE, but maybe the coaches know something we don't.

Anyway, on day 2 we got fantastic value. Jacob Ford? Huzzah on that! We also picked up Smith, who is a steal that late, Harris, who fills a desperate need for depth at OG and C, and Davis, who can return punts. I really like how this draft turned out, even though I probably would not have drafted the same 2nd and 3rd rounders.

Since I havent been around in a couple of days I havent commented on our draft

I like the pick of Griffin, he will vastly improve the secondary and he gets Lamont off the field for good :) ... once the Pac attack is back we will have one of the top secondarys in the league

Not a fan of the second pick, picking an unproven back in the second round is not a good idea especially with a quality reciever in Steve Smith on the board and tim crowder who would of helped out the DL.

I hope Henry shows me something because right now im pretty pissed about that pick, he better not be just a workout warrior

I like the pick of Mike Griffin. I would have rather seen another position addressed, but that's no knock on Griffin, cause I think he's a helluva player. I don't know about all this stuff that Fisher is talking about...playing him at nickel, corner, and safety. I say just stick him at safety and let him run and hit. We'd have a great safety tandem.

The Chris Henry pick I do not like. The classic boom/bust pick. If he works out, it could be a fantastic pick. If he doesn't, it will be laughed at for years. He hasn't shown that he can play on the football field, so for our sake, we better hope there were alot of other factors that played into that, and that it wasn't just because of his ability. I'll wait and see about this one, but I'm nervous about it.

Paul Williams...meh. Another pick on potential. If it works, great. But he's had problems staying healthy and staying consistent.

I do like the Leroy Harris pick. He might could be Mawae's eventual replacement.I'm with you, but i liked most of are pick second days, and i liked both Offenseive linemen that we took. But Herny has potential, but i feel he would have been there in the third round, also since we didn't trade up for Rice or Jarrett, i felt there were no second round value WR to take(I'm not huge on steve smith, i see alot of Btradon jones in him). Paul Williams has alot of potential, he would have been a late 1st rounder, early second rounder if it wasn't for his bad injuries prone and play during his senior season. I see him also being a boom and bust type of player. Overall i like the draft, and the Titans must feel good about the DE's on the team right now, i don't know about that, but maybe they know something we don't.

I see us spreading the ball around this year, i expect to see ALOT of 3 and 4 WR set during the year, which will cut the need for a young WR to step up right away and be that #1 guy, but we will need to solve this problem within the next few seasons.

I still think we'll be a run-first team because I don't think Fisher can get away from the desire to be a pound-it-out type of offense.

As far as a potential #1 WR...can anybody say "Earl F. Bennett"???

Earl Bennett = Titans 2008 1st Round Pick
