I want Brandon Graham, not because I'm a Michigan fan....well actually thats mostly the reason, but he's pretty good.

Him or Morgan from Georgia Tech.

Alright, Aaron Kampman is much more realistic. I would like Peppers too, but its highly unlikely that we shell out the big bucks for him

I want to re-sign Rod Hood!

Re-signing Hood should be a top priority in FA, IMO. The Houston game will be the barometer. We saw how Harper needed safety help every play against Houston, and his side still got burned multiple times. If Hood fares better, then he's definitely a keeper. Fenikz said that he didn't think Hood should've been cut, so we possibly got a good player in FA without having to trade or lose comp picks.

Kampman would be awesome, but how many years does he have left? He's a year younger than KVB, so would we get 2 years out of him? Maybe 3? He'd be a great short term option, but I'd still want to get a great DE in the 1st RD.

My favorite is Derrick Morgan from Georgia Tech. The GT DL does a lot of stunting, which the Titans DL does as well.

1. DB Eric Berry - We all love EB.
2. QB Jimmy Clausen - My favorite QB prospect in this class. He's got the talent, plays in a pro-style offense, and has experience.
3. WR Demaryius Thomas - Skip him.
4. DE Derrick Morgan - S-T-U-D! Just watch him work. His pad level is so freaking low. Plays the run extremely well, and gets a great jump off the line and has the speed to get around the OT when rushing the passer.
5. DE Brandon Graham - Another great player, and monster against the run. Relentless motor, and if not for his height, he'd probably be the best DE prospect in the Draft.

Dunno where we're slotted right now to pick, but I think Morgan is worth a Top 15 pick. Clausen is worth the 1st Overall pick. Graham is worth a Top 25 pick.

Vince is probably playing just well enough for us to not look elsewhere after this season. Especially if he opts for a pay cut.

Very true. But, just to be safe, I'm still looking at the QB's when I can. I love what VY's doing, but he's still got 7 games left. If his play drops and we finish 6-10 or something, then I think it'd be extremely hard to pass on a franchise QB.

I think VY keeps it up though.

I would love an impact pass rusher. I'm also holding out hope we can get Dan Williams in the 3rd, but I doubt it.

It depends on who's available in the 3rd RD.

Dan Williams I was hesitant on, but after seeing him blossom in Monte Kiffin's Tampa 2, I have no doubt he could be a great NT in a Cover 2 scheme. The only question is does he have the athleticism and stamina to play on our DL where you gotta run-run-run.

The DT I like is Vince Oghobaase (http://www.draftcountdown.com/ScoutingReports/DT/Vince-Oghobaase.php) out of Duke. Dude is a mammoth at 6'5, 305 lbs. He's got great athleticism, and can gain more weight. Scott underrates him vastly, but if he drops to the mid-2nd RD, I'd hope they trade up and nab him.

Neither will probably be available in the 3rd RD, and we may be looking at guys like DeMarcus Granger. If that's the case, I'd rather go towards another position like OG (Mitch Petrus, Sergio Render), CB (Javier Arenas), or LB (Roddrick Muckelroy).

Re-Sign:
TE Alge Crumpler
DE Kyle Vanden Bosch
LB Stephen Tulloch
CB Roderick Hood
CB Vincent Fuller

We like having 3-4 TEs on-roster. Alge is slow & over-the-hill; however, he's still a capable blocker and can make a few catches as well. Plus, he'll be much cheaper to retain than Scaife. I'd rather keep one of them than invest another pick in a TE (Cook's our future TE anyway so Alge's will be a depth guy). I think we can re-sign KVB for relatively cheap -- he overruns a lot of plays but has a high-motor and can still be a solid contributor. Tulloch can be improved; however, if he can be retained for cheap, it might not be worth investing a draft-pick or having to bring a FA in. Hood is a no-brainer re-sign, as is Fuller.

Release:
QB Kerry Collins
TE Bo Scaife
DE Jevon Kearse
DT Tony Brown
LB Keith Bulluck
CB Nick Harper

Bo Scaife, Tony Brown, and Keith Bulluck will all want more money than we'll give them. I think all three are good players and will get picked up relatively quickly upon entering FA. Kearse and Harper are over-the-hill and should be let go. Collins looked pretty bad this season -- constantly over-throwing guys and making some bad decisions for a vet. We'll need to bring in some vet to backup VY.

Draft:
1st Round -- DL (pass-rushing DE or penetrating DT)
3rd Round -- CB (coverage/kick-return CB)
4th Round -- LB (potential LB)
5th Round -- OL (depth OL)
6th Round -- QB (developmental QB)
7th Round -- LB (depth LB)

Obviously, I think our DEF will need some re-tooling. We REALLY need someone who can consistently apply pressure on the QB and open things up for KVB/Hayes on the other side. As far as CB goes, I think Hood's exceeded expectations; however, I'd play it safe and invest another pick in the position (just in case Hood flounders next year). I'd LOVE to get Javier Arenas in the 3rd because he's solid in coverage and is a phenomenal kick/punt returner (though I think he'll go in the 2nd round). We play alot of nickel & dime, so we can never have enough good CBs. We need to continue to infuse some youth/potential into our LB crew. We always draft 1-2 OL in the mid-rounds, and I trust Munchak to find those guys who fit our system. Even though Young looks much improved right now, I really hope we draft a developmental QB in this draft -- someone who could at least develop into a solid backup QB (or potential starter).

Vincent Fuller was a FA last offseason. We re-signed him, but I forget how long it was. I know it was over one year, so he won't be a Free Agent. If the CBA isn't extended, Tulloch will be a Restricted Free Agent. We have the option of tendering him, and then possibly get picks for him if another team wants him. I agree with everything else, but Crumpler depends on the development of Craig Stevens. We invested a 3rd RD'er on that guy, and he's supposedly a beastly blocker. I agree he'd be great depth, though. Rod Hood is a no-brainer.

Kearse and Harper are over-the-hill and should be let go. Collins looked pretty bad this season -- constantly over-throwing guys and making some bad decisions for a vet. We'll need to bring in some vet to backup VY.

I'd like to use the Franchise Tag on Bulluck. Everyone else is expendable. When we drafted SenDerrick Marks, I figured he'd be Brown's replacement when he leaves. Plus, we have Jovan Haye for another year. He's a very good player, though. It'd be hard to see him walk away. Agree with everything aside from Bulluck.

Draft:
1st Round -- DL (pass-rushing DE or penetrating DT)
3rd Round -- CB (coverage/kick-return CB)
4th Round -- LB (potential LB)

Even though Young looks much improved right now, I really hope we draft a developmental QB in this draft -- someone who could at least develop into a solid backup QB (or potential starter).

Absolutely agree with a pass-rusher with our 1st RD'er. After that, I think FA and a possible scheme change will decide it. We spent a 3rd RD'er last year on a "Coverage/Return Specialist" when we picked Mouton. He blew it as a returner, but perhaps a training camp and another year of maturity will help him in that area. Plus, he showed flashes as a CB, but he had no business being out there against Manning and Brady. We're blitzing a lot more with Cecil than we did with Schwartz. Tulloch is a capable blitzer, but Bulluck and Thornton aren't. Perhaps an OLB with pass-rushing skills would be a good investment in the 3rd RD? Kevin Mawae and Eugene Amano are set to be FA's. We know Leroy Harris could be the future OC or LG, but who gets the other spot? Will Troy Kropog take over the LG spot? Will Kropog stay as depth and we draft an OL fairly early to start?

I agree with the positions we pick. We'll also have compensatory picks, including at least a 3rd RD'er from losing Haynesworth. So we'll have three picks in the first 3 RD's, which will definitely come in handy.

I somehow completely forgot about both Mawae and Amano as likely departures. I think both are replaceable, as Leroy Harris has looked pretty good in limited time. But they probably will spend 1-2 draft picks on OL this year, assuming that they don't bring in any FAs (which they might do). Munchak is the coach that I trust most to evaluate/develop talent, so I don't really worry about re-tooling our OL.

As far as franchising Bulluck, I'd be all for that. It would allow us to focus our attention to other positions this offseason and address LB next season. However, I don't think it'll happen.

I was just about to say, would anyone on this board be really upset if the Titans pulled a Ditka-Williams type deal for Suh? I wouldn't see a problem trading an entire draft day for this one guy cause I can't honestly recall seeing a college defensive lineman being as disruptive as he has been this season. You plug him into an NT spot and you have your defensive cornerstone for the next decade or so.

Hey dudes. Who in the Titans org is responsible for personnel decisions? Does Jeff Fisher control that for the most part? I know with the Colts Bill Polian is the guy and Caldwell (and Dungy before him) just focused on coaching and provided input when needed. But I don't know of a similar figure on the Titans staff.

I'd trade up for either Suh or Gerald McCoy. Our 1st, 4th, and RFA Tony Brown would be proper ammo to do so too.

Mike Reinfeldt.

Yup, it'd probably go Mike Reinfeldt #1 and then Jeff Fisher #2. Reinfeldt is Executive VP and General Manager, and Fisher is Executive VP and Head Coach. They both work together to make decisions, but Reinfeldt has final say since he's in charge of the cap, contracts, etc.

Some assistant coaches have some say as well, such as Mike Munchak. Munch has so much respect within the organization that they allow him to hand pick his OL's in the Draft. When asked about the Troy Kropog pick, Fisher stated that it was a Mike (Munchak) pick.

The coaching staff evaluates players with Reinfeldt, and from there they decide of what they do. Many times throughout the season, Reinfeldt will bring in the occasional FA to workout. Titans fans call it "Updating the files." That way if they need to bring somebody in, they have recent info on guys who are available. In the Draft, they work together to fill out a Draft Board. If the trade up for a player, it's usually on recommendation by the coaching staff. If they trade down, that's usually Reinfeldt - he'll see how many spots he has to move down and compare it to how many players they like that are available. If they have to move down 6 spots and 6 players they want are available, then Reinfeldt will pull the trigger.

Then, there are the huge decisions such as the VY pick and giving Haynesworth a historic contract. In those cases, Bud Adams will get involved. It's common knowledge that VY was Bud Adams's guy in the Draft, and I think as an organization, Fisher, Reinfeldt, and Adams decided they would not give AH that massive contract.

I want a punt returner or kick returner so bad in this draft. If we are picking anywhere in the 17-32 range I would not be upset at all if we took Golden Tate. I know it isnt sexy or likely, but damn our ST suxs.

Harper is horrible and Kearse is gettin' old

I totally agree with your re-signings. Fortunately, no CBA will make Scaife and Brown RFA's, so we don't have to re-sign them and just tender them instead. Harper and Kearse are FA's, so we don't have to release them.

As for the Draft, Mawae is a FA and Leroy Harris is our future at Center, so it's LG we have to worry about with Eugene Amano a FA as well - so Iupati would definitely work at LG. He would be a reach where we pick, and I think Golden Tate would be too. Personally, I like DE for our pick. Preferrably Derrick Morgan, but there are lots of talented pass-rushers in this crop like Jerry Hughes and Jason Pierre-Loius.

Welcome to the SWDC Brandon! :D

Ok, so last year, me and several of ya'll were vocal against a DT in the 1st RD. Haynesworth was headed to Washington, and everyone outside looking in saw replacing AH as the #1 priority. We spoke against it, and sure enough, we pass for Kenny Britt.

I know Voodoo and I drooled over this year's DT class, and that was a big thing in us wanting to pass in favor of picking one this year. But then we took SenDerrick Marks in the 2nd RD, has Jason Jones already, and will likely retain Tony Brown as a RFA.

Well, we're heading back into pre-Draft mode, and I'm seeing a lot of Dan Williams and Brian Price picks. Do some of ya'll think those would be good choices, or do you think a DE, CB, OLB, or RS would be better ones?

Hey what up guys! As u can see im new here.. I to feel that the titans need to address their defence in the 1st round.. Specifically dt or cb, But at 16,or 17 will there be a dt worth taking? I mean, suh will be long gone an mccoy as well.


I say shift to cb then depending on who's available.. if florida's joe hadden is on the board he's worth a gd look. 218 tackles 8 pics in three seasons, Also started as a true fresh..

I know this gonna sound crazy but hear me out lol.. If hadden's gone I think u take the best player available.. If c.j spiller is sitting there do u take a look? This guy is a weapon an can do it all.. Kick return, punt return, line up at wideout, an of course he's a great running back. Kinda reminds of cj2k a little bit lol.. cj's work load increased big time this year, an could possibly increase next year but im shocked that he walked away this season with no major injuries.. Outside of v.y legs he's the only playmaker we have untill someone else steps up. Do u resign lendale? If not ur left with javon ringer who isn't proven


Tony brown should be resigned if possible. I know reindfelt will be looking at drafting a dt but what other free agent can u bring in to start.

tag bulluck

look at bringing kvb back.. With consistent pressure from the dt's he's a beast on pass situations. His work ethic seems contagious an young players can use that

I think they will let scaife go tho

I think I've watched every game that McClain has played in college. That dude is a STUD on defense. Really smart player, athletic, a tackling machine. I think we should address DL or CB in the 1st round (depending on our FA moves). HOWEVER, if McClain somehow falls to the middle of Round 1, I think we should forgo the other DEF positions and draft him. Outside of Suh & McCoy, I think he's the surest DEF player in this year's draft.

Also...I know that some (including myself) were advocating that the Titans put the franchise tag on Keith Bulluck. However, after thinking about it, I doubt that happens now because of his knee injury and uncertainty about how long it'll take him to recover.

Really I wouldn't mind drafting a Dan Williams or Brian Price as long as we use that to kick Jason Jones out to left end.
Another situation I could see us doing is trading out of the first for a couple of second round picks.
If we go defensive end, I'd like Everson Griffen or Derrick Morgan. I'd hope we'd avoid Carlos Dunlap or Greg Hardy like the plague.

JJ could be hovering around 300 lbs by the start of next season. He was 290 this season. Who knows how big SenDerrick Marks will be and what his role will be? And I know this may sound like heresy, but I like Brian Price more for us than Big Dan. Price took games over at DT and rushing the passer, where as Big Dan anchored the line and made a good play here and there. Both are great players, but I think Price fits what we like to do at DT.

We could maybe trade back like we did in '04 when we drafted Odom and Laboy. I wouldn't touch Hardy in the 1st, but if we traded back and acquired a 2nd, and he was available there, then I think he'd be well worth the risk.

Yeah, I saw that earlier (Btw, you're awesome at keepin' us updated on new articles and stuff Doughie!). Nice try Texans! :D

But it's good to see Munch get love from outside the Titans organization, and I'm glad the interview request was shot down. Texans fans will probably blame Bud first for not allowing this, since they hate his guts, but he wasn't behind this. Then they'll blame Fisher, since he's the HC and recent games have been chippy, but he wasn't behind this. It's most likely that Munch himself decided against this. Fisher has publically said that if another team asks to interview an assistant, then he'll ask the assistant if he wants to. If he does, then Fish will allow it. If he doesn't, then Fish won't allow it. That places the blame on Fisher, doesn't burn any bridges, and doesn't make it look like the assistant isn't interested in a promotion elsewhere. This may mean Munch is gettin' a raise, and if so, git you some big'un!!!

Also good to see a public show of faith on Bud's part, and I think this is the right move. I'm a big Fisher guy, and I think he's one of the best coaches in the league. He's a player's coach, and he's a lot smarter and craftier than most people think. We ended the season on an 8-2 run, with the only losses coming to the Colts and Chargers, and VY showed he had developed as a passer and a person. CJ and our OL will be great, and Kenny Britt will have a full year under his belt. The offense will be good, and if we can sew up the holes on defense at #2 CB, pass-rusher, and staying healthy, then I think we're a Playoff team. It'd be an unwise decision to stunt that progress with a coaching change.

Hi guys. Glad to be anywhere Titans fans are.

I really think we should invest in a pass-rushing defensive lineman. Down the stretch, our secondary got better (save for Nick Harper), but we had a hard time getting to the quarterback on a consistent basis.

Also, if Bulluck leaves, do you guys think we would sign/draft a guy to immediately replace him, or will Fish let McRath have a go at it?

i would love for us to pick up a speedy pass rusher like jason worilds or willie young in the mid-late rounds, neither are great/good with the run and both lack ideal size(weight) but both excel at getting to the qb in passing situtations, in other words i want us to score a DE who gets down to business on passing downs :D

Controllin' the Titans in a Fantasy Mock! Doin' 7 Rounds with trades. Right now I've traded twice. I shipped LenDale and our 3rd RD'er to the Chargers for Antonio Cromartie and their 5th RD'er. I also traded back in the 1st RD by sending our 1st RD'er to the Cardinals for two 2nd RD'ers. I just now used the first 2nd RD'er and picked Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss.

So I've got DE and CB covered. Cromartie is kind've soft, and I kind've wished I had asked for Jammer who is more of a "Titans DB," but hopefully he'd play with more swagger here. Plus, there's no denying what he's capable of. Greg Hardy is a Top 15 talent, but injuries pushed him down. But, the last DE with an injury history that we brought in has worked out pretty damn well for us, so I took the chance on a great value.

I may try to trade back again with my second 2nd RD'er if the guys I'm targeting are gone by then. If there's a draft to trade down and gather additional 3rd, 4th, and 5th RD picks in, it's this upcoming one. Looking to address OLB, RS, OG, RB, another DL, and a partridge in a pear tree!

Picked Daryl Washington with our second 2nd RD pick. He had the longest wingspan of any LB at the Senior Bowl, and is probably the best coverage LB in the draft. Picture perfect for our scheme, and would be a great opposite Gerald McRath.

Was an extremely tough decision to go with Ford over Montario Hardesty. We'll need another RB after trading LenDale, and Hardesty would've been a great value in the 4th. But then again, Ford was a great value too, and solidied PR/KR which is a much, much more pressing need (although Cromartie could help in that departement if need be). Plus, Ford is an explosive player and adding his speed at WR in addition to CJ in the backfield, VY at QB, and the "above the rim" element that Britt, Gage, and Cook give us, and the offense just gets that much more difficult to stop. I have two 5th RD picks, so I can always trade up too.

Voodoo knows another former Vol I'm targeting, and I'm also looking for OL depth and DL depth with my last picks. :cool:

Yup, really depends on BPA, but the Titans need a DE since KVB and Kearse are FA's/old, a CB to play opposite Finnegan, and a LB to take over for Bulluck who is a FA (and coming off a torn ACL, if we do bring him back). We're also in desperate need of a PR/KR, and I wouldn't rule out OG pending on if we re-sign Eugene Amano at LG. Contrary to popular belief, I don't think we take a DT early unless we think the value is tremendous, since it's not as big of a need as DE, CB, or OLB.

Very good news, IMO.

Amano's not a great lineman. However, he's solid and he provides a lot of versatility on the OL. More importantly, this signing pretty much solidifies the OL for next year. Even if we don't re-sign Kevin Mawae, we've got Leroy Harris waiting in the wings to start.

I agree, I watch the o-line alot on nfl replay and Eugene and Jake Scott are really gifted runblockers. David Stewart is the one who blows the doors off of everyone, but Eugene and Jake are extremely good at getting down the field and are a big part at helping CJ2K break those long runs. They are 2 really good O-lineman that don't get nearly as much credit as they should.

Honestly, I'm surprised. I thought they'd let him walk like they did Jacob Bell, and maybe put Troy Kropog at LG. But come to think of it, I dunno why I thought that. Amano provides a starting caliber Guard and Center, which is something Fisher would undoubtedly put value in. Great re-sign!

Agreed, Brown needs to be re-signed. We have the advantage of him being a RFA, so if an extension isn't reached, we can just tender him for 1st & 3rd RD picks. TB is the most under-rated DT in the NFL, and we need him in the middle while Jason Jones and SenDerrick Marks continue developing.

Hey guys i'm new to the boards(first post)

I'm really excited to get Amano back. While he's not really a special player, he still keeps us from needing to fill that need of an O-Lineman in either FA or the Draft and allows us to focus exclusively on the defense for the rest of the offseason.

I'd also really like to see us resign Keith Bulluck and KVB. It's nice to see them already talking to Tony Brown, but we do have the advantage of him being a RFA so I don't see the rush. We should be trying to lock down any of the UFA we will be having first (Although maybe that means they aren't interested in signing any of our UFAs?), like KVB. I know a lot of people don't want him back because of his drop in production the last couple of years, but he's still a solid player and he's still either the best or second best DE still on our team. Maybe i'm in the minority here, but i'm uncomfortable going into next season with a bunch of guys with two years of experience or less... and Dave ball. Plus the UFA market isn't very good for DE's that we have a shot at getting. The only one would be Kampman and he's coming off a major injury so he might not be much better than KVB. So i'd like to keep the vet who's been one of the leaders of our team the last couple of years.

As for Bulluck, i want him back and i think the team would seem weird without him. But unfortunately i don't see him coming back and i wouldn't really blame the FO for not resigning him either. An ACL tear is a very serious injury that takes a long time to recover from, and considering his age it might take even longer and he might not be even close to form when he has recovered. It's really a shame, but unfortunately that's how it goes sometimes and i think the FO isn't going to want to go through that and they will just give his spot to McRath or any young guy we get in the draft. But he's still Keith Bulluck, and i'd like to see him back in Titan blue for the rest of his career even if it's probably not going to happen :(

Also if we lose White, who would you guys like to see replace him? Or would you rather like to see ringer take his spot?

CashmoneyDrew
02-16-2010, 12:57 PM
Great first post FtB. Welcome and post often. We can always use more Titans fans.

I agree with you about Keith Bulluck. It'd be weird to see a Titans defense without him, but that ACL tear is just a tough situation. Especially since it happened so late in the season. It'll be interesting to see what happens with him and you can't blame the FO if they decide to pass on re-signing him, IMO.

As for Lendale, I wouldn't be surprised for us to re-sign him and use him as trade bait. If the Titans did that, Ringer would probably get most of the carries CJ2K doesn't, and they'd probably pick up a vet to fill the third spot. But TitanHope and I wouldn't mind seeing the Titans use a pick on Montario Hardesty either. :)

TitanHope
02-16-2010, 04:23 PM

Heck yeah! :D

Now that Amano's been tagged, I think Bulluck or KVB will get the Franchise Tag. This is a great situation to use that ability. You have aging players who have been stalwarts and leaders of your team for the past several seasons, but there are questions surrounding health, age, and efficiency.

I'd rather them tag Bulluck, and re-sign KVB to a proper 2-3 year contract. KVB may not be tearing it up nowadays, but like F2B said, he's still our best DE and although I may not be a math wiz, subtracting your best player (even if he's lost a step, he's still our best option at one of the two starting DE spots) at a position doesn't improve your team.

Bulluck is still a Pro Bowl caliber 4-3 OLB, and he's a tough SOB. If anyone can pull through an injury unscathed, it's KBull - he'll scratch and claw his way back. The dude played all of '08 with a busted up rib cage. Tag him, give him Top 5 money at his position, and give him a year to heal up and contribute. Meanwhile, draft an OLB in the draft and develop him behind Bull to eventually take over for him.

I'd be fine with parting ways with LenDale. He'll be a RFA this offseason, so if we tender him at a low offer, there's a good chance another team will offer him and have to give us compensation. It just can't be anything steep. I'm thinking a 4th RD'er at best. Draft a new RB with the extra pick, and have him and Ringer battle it out for #2 RB.

If i'm not mistaken, a team doesn't make up a RFA tender themselves. There are four tenders to choose from.

Low: Original Pick
Middle: 2nd round pick
High: First round pick
Highest: First and Third

So the lowest we could possibly get through a RFA tender on white is a 2nd( because he was a 2nd round pick), which i dont think any team would be willing to do away with for him.

I know with the Franchise Tag players, a team can come up with their own value and trade a tagged player for something other than a 1st RD'er, 3rd RD'er, and future 1st RD'er. It happened with Matt Cassell just recently when he was traded for something like two 2nd RD'ers. If the same principle applies to RFA tenders, which for whatever reason my memory is saying it does, then the Titans could tender LenDale at a Low Tender and then negotiate down from a 2nd RD pick with a prospective team.

The tender prices aren't set in stone and can be negotiated by two willing teams, but if the team that holds a player's rights is unwilling to negotiate, then the slated tender compensation comes into effect. So say the Titans tendered Tony Brown at the Highest Tender. We're not wanting to get rid of him, so we're unwilling negotiating with any other teams. So if another team wants Brown, they'll then have to give the Titans the benchmark 1st RD and 3rd RD picks since the Titans won't negotiate for a lesser price since they're not looking to let him go.

I could very well be wrong though. This is just how I'm remembering it off the top of my head. Plus, I've been up all night, so I'm preeeetty out of it right now.

I knew you could do that with a franchise tag, but i always thought you weren't allowed to with a RFA tender. I'll just take your word for it, because i can't find anything that backs either side up.

Also great job on the draft so far, that's 4 starters (counting ford at KR/PR) in the first 4 rounds, you can't do much better than that. It seems you already went with Robinson, i would've suggested Lane over him because i think he fits the small school/athletic late round guys we seem to pick up every year. I also think we are set top to bottom at DT (assuming we keep brown), but Robinson's still a good player and he can work his way into the rotation eventually.

Went with Robinson because I think DE is much deeper in these later rounds than DT is. I have another 5th RD pick, so if Lane is still available then I'll snag him then. Both fit the scheme very well, and I think are a great value in the 5th. I believe Kevin Vickerson is a FA, but Robinson could probably upend Jovan Haye and make Haye a training camp cut.

You're too young to know IDD references Doughie! :D



Ok, next pick is coming up. Extremely torn between DE Austen Lane and RB Anthony Dixon. Remember, I traded LenWhale, so we only have CJ and Ringer at RB. Dixon is a big, powerful SEC RB who is criminally under-rated. He was the entire Mississippi St. offense, and would provide another Smash to CJ's Dash. But, Lane is a 6'7, 270, 4.60 40 athletic specimen with production to back it up (although against weak competition, but it still shows his tools translate to the field). We took Jacob Ford out of Central Arkansas, I believe, and William Hayes out of Winston Salem, so we're not afraid to take small college pass-rushers and develop them (as F2B alluded to earlier).

Both have tremendous value, but RB is a bigger need now that DE Greg Hardy has been added (and DT Boo Robinson to bolster the interior DL, which helps the outside rush). DE's and pass-rushing OLB's are going on a run right now, so Lane may not last. If he doesn't, Dixon is the pick. If both are gone, then I'm thinking DE Clifton Geathers to stash and develop or CB Dennis Rogan, who I <3. RB is kind've a wash after Dixon, but Stafon Johnson stands out in the next tier. Plus, guys like James Starks, Chris Brown (although saying RB Chris Brown makes me think ewwwwww), Javarris James, and Michael Smith out of Arkansas, who I think is kind've of a sleeper. Saw a few Arkansas games this season, and Smith proved to be an electric player with solid production to match.

02-18-2010, 05:30 AM
Major insomnia right now.
So...here's my full prediction about this Titans' offseason:

FA Re-Signings:
RB Lendale White (RFA)
TE Bo Scaife (RFA)
DT Tony Brown (RFA)
DT Kevin Vickerson (UFA)
MLB Stephen Tulloch (RFA)
CB Rod Hood (UFA)
S Donnie Nickey (UFA)
P Brett Kern (UFA)

Because there no new CBA, it transforms this year's FA class into a bunch of RFAs -- which will allow most teams to retain their players for at least one more year. It seems like the Titans are actually working hard to re-sign Tony Brown to a long-term deal. Furthermore, I think their strategy will be to tender White, Scaife, and Tulloch with medium-to-high tenders, causing any potential suitors to forfeit good draft picks to the Titans (which I don't think they will). The result will be that White & Scaife will return for one more year, as will Tulloch (who I hope they target next for a long-term deal). Kern filled in pretty well last season and will likely be re-signed now that Craig Hentrich has officially retired. Hood provides some nice veteran depth at the CB position.

FA Signings:
DE Aaron Kampman
OLB Ricky Brown
WR Kelley Washington

In a year where there aren't a ton of good UFAs available, I really think the Titans will make a push for Kampman. Two things that were clear from last season: 1) The Titans need a more consistent pass-rush to help out their secondary & 2) Kampman needs to go back to a 4-3 defensive scheme. Even though Kampman will be coming back from an ACL injury, he'll supposedly be ready by training camp. Ricky Brown is a talented young RFA from Oakland. They could retain him; however, I think they'll have their hands full trying to retain their other starting LBs, Kirk Morrison & Thomas Howard. The Titans have shown in recent years that they'll pursue a RFA if it meets a need (Chris Carr a couple years ago & Jarrett Bush last year). Brown could come in and compete with David Thornton & Gerald McRath for a starting gig. Kelley Washington played his college ball in Tennessee; and with the signing of Donte Stallworth, it probably means that the Ravens won't tender either Washington or Demetrius Williams (or potentially both). Washington would provide some veteran experience for what is a pretty young receiving core.

DRAFT:
1ST ROUND -- DE Everson Griffin (Southern California)
As stated earlier, I think the biggest problem with the defense last season was that there was a total lack of consistent pressure on the QB -- resulting in our secondary being exposed. Even after signing Kampman, I think that the Titans go to the DE well early and often. By this point in the draft, both Jason Pierre-Paul and Derrick Morgan will likely be gone. It's probably a bit too high to select Brandon Graham here, even after an excellent Senior Bowl; and there are some serious questions surrounding Carlos Dunlap. So Griffin is probably the best overall pick here.

3RD ROUND -- CB Javier Arenas (Alabama)
It's no secret that the Titans will address CB at some point this offseason. However, I firmly believe that they will also give Jason McCourty and Ryan Mouton every opportunity to develop into starting-calibur CBs. And, I tend to agree with them in this assessment -- thinking their coverage inconsistencies last season were the result of a) inexperience & b) no pass-rush. There are better coverage corners available than Arenas -- who's undersized and isn't blazing fast. However, having watched Arenas play a lot over the past few years, I can attest that he plays much bigger/faster than you would expect. At Alabama, he progressed from a defensive liability to a very solid CB. Most importantly, he's an absolutely electrifying return man and would address one of the Titans most glaring needs: KR/PR.

3RD ROUND (COMP.) -- DE Austen Lang (Murray State)
I really think that the Titans are going to take a scorched earth approach to solving their pass-rush woes by bringing in some veteran help (Kampman) and drafting some legit young pass-rushers (Griffin & Lang). In comparison to most NFL teams, the Titans are relatively undersized up-front; however, they compensate for that by being deep on the DL -- which allows them to have a steady rotation, keeping guys rested and wearing down the opposing OL. From a physical standpoint, Lang is an absolute freak; and even though he's a small-school prospect, that hasn't scared away the Titans in the past. However, like William Hayes, he'll probably need 1-2 years to fully develop his technique. But Jim Washburn has proven time and time again that he can develop young talent.

4TH ROUND -- RB Ben Tate (Auburn)
Between Tate, Montarrio Hardesty, Anthony Dixon, Joe McKnight, LaGarrette Blount, etc., this is a fantastic draft to add some RB depth. Lots of mid-round value at the position in this draft. Though not as hyped as some of these other guys, Tate is an all-around RB who can run and catch equally well. He's got good speed and some bulk as well. Plus, throughout the years, Auburn seems to be one of those schools that just churns out solid NFL RBs. Tate will compete with Ringer for the #3 RB spot this year -- which, in reality, is probably an audition for the #2 RB spot next season (after White leaves).

5TH ROUND -- TE Michael Hoomanawanui (Illinois)
The Titans love their TEs and it seems like they have four on active roster every season. Even though Scaife will be probably be back for one more season, the Titans are clearly transitioning to younger players at the position. They already have Jared Cook as the future pass-catching option. The Titans drafted Craig Stevens to be their future blocking TE; and while Stevens has played well on special teams, he's yet to illustrate that he can be the player that the Titans hoped he'd develop into. Enter Michael Hoomanawanui -- a huge 6'5, 275 lb. mauling TE. Hoomanawanui has surprisingly soft hands, but his real assets are his size and blocking ability, where he plays like an extra offensive lineman. As everyone knows, the Titans love to run the ball and there isn't a better run-blocking TE in his draft than Hoomanawanui.

6TH ROUND -- C Erik Cook (New Mexico)
Here's Mike Munchak's annual mid-to-late OL developmental pick. The Titans OL is pretty set for the upcoming season; however, Munchak is always looking for more players. Cook has got lots of size on the OL and played very well this past season (only surrendered one sack all year); however, he may best be suited for OG at the next level. Either way, gives them some versatility as a reserve lineman.

7TH ROUND -- DT Malcolm Sheppard (Arkansas)
Undersized DT who likes to penetrate and get after the QB??? Sounds like our kind of DT. Sounds like he's got nice athletic ability. A year on the practice-squad, working with Jim Washburn, would undoubtedly help him add some bulk and technique.

Just an interesting little thing. Who are some prospects you guys hope the Titans avoid in the draft?

- Tim Tebow
- Jason Pierre-Paul
- Carlos Dunlap
- Terrence Cody
- Sergio Kindle

These are the main 5 that I wouldn't want. I realize the chances of us taking Cody or Tebow are slim to none, but who knows with Reinfeldt at the helm.

TitanHope
02-22-2010, 07:10 AM
Yup, we're pretty good about predicting which positions we'll address...but it's those 1st and 2nd RD'ers that I can't get a handle on. I don't think Reinfeldt has traded back once either (maybe in the late rounds, but those don't count ;)). We traded up in the 3rd last year, and the year before that we traded up in the 4th for William Hayes. I'd like to see him trade down this year. If we could get a late 1st and a 3rd for #16/17, then that'd give us a late 1st and three 3rd RD'ers, which would be great.

There's no prospects that I really don't want, other than Carlos Dunlap. I'd be ok with Dan Williams, but not Terrance Cody or Jared Odrick. I also hope we don't do something like draft Earl Thomas and plan on playing him at CB, ala the first half of Griffin's rookie season. No to Taylor Mays too since our safety issues last year are correctable, and Kindle would be a horrible fit for us.

TitanHope
02-22-2010, 11:02 PM
Thanks for all the compliments guys! :cool:


But yeah, I wouldn't mind taking JPP either. It's true he's boom or bust, but that's the case with a lot of DE's. I can see Derrick Morgan being a bust for us if we land him, even though I think he's picture perfect for our DL. But if we gamble and hit, like we did with Kearse, then we have that dynamic pass-rusher that'll help put us back over the Playoff plateau. I also think gambling on JPP is much safer than say Dunlap. This isn't a case of a freakish athlete not living up to expectations like Dunlap. JPP's motor puts forth the effort - he's just so raw right now and needs refining. He just hasn't had the opportunity to fully develop and master the position yet, but if he ever does, he'll be a force. A team just has to understand that when drafting him, and I think the Titans have the DL Coach capable of coaching him up and a HC smart and patient enough to understand what he's getting in the meantime.

My ideal Draft right now is staying put and having Morgan or JPP fall to us, or trading back for a late 1st RD'er and picking Everson Griffen or Greg Hardy. Actually, I may prefer trading back. I think Griffen and Hardy will be very good DE's in the NFL. Hardy's injuries scare off people, but if you disregard the bad luck he's had, the man is the closest thing to a sure thing at DE in this draft. Plus, we hit gold with another injury plagued DE not too long ago, so I can't throw the guy's name out because of that. Not too familiar with Griffen, but for whatever reason, I have a gut feeling that he'll be a pass-rushing force in the NFL. Really have nothing to back that up, and truth be told, I haven't sat down and watched highlights of his but maybe once. I guess I'm just seeing a guy who looks like he can fit the Dwight Freeney mold at RE in a Cover 2?

Titans have tight end questions with Alge Crumpler, Bo Scaife

The Titans still have some questions at tight end, where veterans Alge Crumpler and Bo Scaife are scheduled to become free agents March 5.

Crumpler's agent and the Titans have talked, but there's still work to be done.

"They like Alge, and Alge likes Tennessee,'' agent James "Butch" Williams said Monday. " … Alge will consider staying in Tennessee — I'll say it like that. When you get to be a 10-year vet you have to look at a lot of different things."

Crumpler caught 27 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown last season but was the team's best blocking tight end, helping running back Chris Johnson rush for 2,006 yards.

* Kevin Mawae expected to test NFL free agency
* Titans, Eugene Amano make it official
* Keith Bulluck still awaiting call from Titans
* Titans haven't closed door on Vanden Bosch
* Titans free agents
* Titans analysis

As for Scaife, he earned $4.46 million last year, when the Titans designated him their franchise player.

With little hope of a new collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players before March 5, it looks like Scaife will be a restricted free agent.

To keep him, the Titans would have to pay 110 percent of his salary from last season, according to league rules. That means Scaife's tender would cost $4.906 million, much more than the highest tender available.

Scaife was the team's third-leading receiver last season with 45 catches for 440 yards and a touchdown.

Also on the roster are Jared Cook, a third-round pick last year, and rising third-year pro Craig Stevens.

Mawae bye-bye: There's no longer any doubt about center Kevin Mawae's status regarding free agency. He's hitting the market, his agent said.

"Nothing has changed,'' agent Mark Bartelstein said of the non-existent negotiations with the Titans. "He will definitely hit the market, but (we'll) continue to talk to the Titans.''

The Titans have options at center. They could move guard Eugene Amano to center and insert Leroy Harris at guard, or keep Amano at guard and put Harris at center.

Bartelstein has said Mawae isn't interested in returning to the Titans as a backup.

Amato's status: The agent for long snapper Ken Amato, who can become an unrestricted free agent March 5, has started talks with the Titans.

"We are interested in returning to Tennessee and from my judgment I think they would like to have Kenny back," agent Robert Huebner said. "We are hopeful.''

Amato has played in 93 games for the Titans since 2003.

SI's latest mock draft.

Has Eric Berry falling to 11 to the Jaguars (yuck) and Rolando McClain going 15 to the Giants. Has us taking Derrick Morgan.

I kind of hope we'd trade up for Berry or McClain if that situation arose. Those guys are top 5 talents, IMO.

If Berry ended up on the Jags... Good thing he's not going to fall that far.

I love McClain, but I think Derrick Morgan would be more conducive for our success. We need a pass-rush or improved coverage, and McClain doesn't provide that. Now, if the likes of Morgan, JPP, and Haden are all gone and McClain is still available, then that'd be good - he's obviously BPA. But I dunno if I'd wanna trade up for him, y'know?

McClain doesn't fill as big of a need as Morgan would, but he is a top 5 or 6 talent in the draft and he would bring a lot of versatility to our LB corps. IDK, he's just one of my favorite prospects in the class.

As for tendering Scaife and trading him.... hopefully we could rob some team of a second or maybe third round pick.

Well, I could've gotten JPP, but it's either JPP in the 1st or Hardy and Washington with two 2nd RD'ers. I think Dunlap will be a bust. At least with Hardy the only worry is injuries and not an effort/motor thing like Dunlap. I was hoping Griffen would fall to me, but New Orleans took him which surprised me. I think Hardy at DE and Washington at OLB would be great additions.

Also, Nick Harper isn't worth a 3rd RD'er (which is the value the Chargers owner had Cro at), and he's a Free Agent to boot. But in the end, I wish I wouldn't have traded for Cro and kept the 3rd. Then just traded LenDale for a 4th or something.

03-01-2010, 08:22 AM
Our entire pass-defense was crap last year. Finny and Hope were the only consistent ones, and Finny was hurt for most of the year. Although, Harper was hurt as well...and so was Fuller...and Griffin...

Hopefully the secondary stays healthy and rebounds this upcoming season. They lost AH on the DL to help with their pass-rush, and also lost their DB Coach when Cecil became DC. There's just too much talent back there with Finny, Griffin, and Hope to be ranked so poorly against the pass. The #2 CB spot will be fun to watch - Who gets it? Mouton or McCourty? A FA? A rookie? Maybe Fuller even?

We should've never let Eric King hit FA... ;)

I was listening to Titans radio with Jonathan Hutton and he said from what he has gathered from talks with Jeff Fisher and Mike Reinfeldt that our draft board looks like this.....

Player the Titans are most interested in...

Rolando McClain (Jonathan said the Titans identified him as a their "Blue Chip" player.)

DE is the number 1 priority if he is not available and the three guys he named were

1. JPP
2.Derrick Morgan
3.Sergio Kindle
Note: He said the Titans are not very high on Griffen (but it could just be a cover up)

He then said that if Jpp, Derrick or Kindle were not available priority number 2 would be Corner. and the titans were interested in...

1.Joe Haden
2.Earl Thomas
3.Kyle Wilson

LB outside of Rolando is priority number 3 ( I cant remember who he put as 2 and 3 but I know they are VERY high on Darryl Washington, maybe even more than Spoon.)

DoughBoy
03-01-2010, 04:24 PM
Just from looking at the list, Earl Thomas and Sergio look like the most likely picks. Don't know what I think of that, although I am a little higher on Sergio than some of you guys. (Earl Thomas just looks like another Michael Griffin experiment IMO).

Hey guys i'm pretty new to the forum but as an avid Titans fan i figured i would give my 2 cents.

First off I agree with VooDoo Monkey that if McClain starts to fall out of the top 10 we gotta move up and grab him, I've been watching him for a few years and he's the real deal, he could be the leader on our defense for years to come. Its not all about his physical talents, its his leadership, instincts, and the way he prepares himself and the guys around him for games. I liken him to a Ray Lewis type of mike backer whose going to make sure the whole defense is on the same page, read the offense, call out assignments, diagnose screens or draws, and just make the guys around him better.

I really like JPP at 16 if we could get him but other than that most of the other 1st round DE prospects scare me, Bulaga shut Morgan down at the Orange bowl ( he did'nt even have a single tackle in the game! ) Griffen seriously underachieved at USC,and it really scares me that so many people have the Titans picking him, he was being hyped as one of the best DE prospects ever coming out of high school and few USC DE have had a lot of success in the NFL, And we all know about the question marks surrounding Dunlap. So if we cant get JPP i think they Should look at DT, I personally Like Price the best out of the one's that would be available. I also think that it wouldnt be a bad idea to trade down if possible this draft is pretty deep and you can get talented players who will have an immeadiate impact outside of 1st round.

I really hope that Titanhope's Lenwhale for cromartie trade becomes reality :cool:

and if it does Hardesty would be a great pickup, he'd be a good complement to CJ, I actually played against him in high school and the Dude was a freaking monster, he ran for over 300 yards against us, and we were no slouch of a team we were ranked in the NC High School top ten most of the year.

So...apparently the Titans tendered a few of their RFAs...

Bo Scaife (1st Round Tender)
Tony Brown (1st Round Tender)
Stephen Tulloch (1st Round Tender)
Lendale White (2nd Round Tender)
Kevin Vickerson (2nd Round Tender)
Dave Ball (2nd Round Tender)

Basically, we have a chance to meet any other team's offer. If another team offers more money than our tender and signs our player, they have to forfeit the tendered draft pick. (Of course, sometimes the two teams negotiate a trade that involves a lower draft pick.)

Personally, I think that we might have a chance to move Bo Scaife, Lendale White, and Kevin Vickerson. However, I don't think that any of them will result in the draft round that we tendered them at. I think it's more likely that we get a 3rd-4th rounder for Scaife, a 4th-5th rounder for White (this is a deep RB draft-class), or a 4th-5th rounder for Vickerson (who could be a good DT for some 3-4 team).

It also appears that the Titans are making serious progress in their efforts to re-sign Tony Brown to a long-term deal, which would be awesome. Tulloch would be next on the list after that, I'm sure.

In semi-related news, the Raiders apparently tendered their LB Kirk Morrison with a 3rd round pick. I'd LOVE for the Titans to make a deal for Morrison. I think he's easily worth a 3rd rounder; and the Titans may even be able to negotiate that down to a 4th rounder.

I know that the Titans are usually very conservative in the free agent market, but we definitely need to hit at least one of our major needs (CB LB, DE) so we don't have to press on draft day. I'd prefer to go after corner in the FA market since we need a starter and the value at our pick in the first won't be there.

Well with tennesse loosing kvb, an no stand out dt at 16 I can see them definitely going de now depending on who's available.. Fred smoot, an antwan randel el is available.. Randel el has gotten older an his price tag should come down now.. Tennessee loves bargain deals so I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a look.. He's not a bad punt returner an could add some deph at wr, but not a huge need at the moment "WR". I think the closes tenn will get to a number 1 wr this year is britt an gage.. They ddnt play bad last year given the amount of times the titans passed the ball, I just don't see them spending big dollars on another wide out after nate.. Drafting a wide out late an hoping to steal a gem in later rounds fits perfect with the team's conservative approach an needs at the moment.. Boldin I believe is still a solid wr, but im not sure if he's still a number one, an giving up a number 3 along with his salary is somthing I wouldn't do if I was general manger\ coach fisher.. Dline on the other hand needs the most attention, an should be addressed in the 1st round pending on who's available.. At cb fred Smoot could be a step up from nick harper, Depending on what the dline can get accomplished next year.. Not to big on lito shepard either but might be able to get em at cheap price.. Looks like tenn will be trying to plug holes through the draft again, because I really don't see them making many moves.. the other day they did sign pago togafau off waivers... Its still early tho!

Leigh Bodden or Lito Sheppard would'nt be bad pick ups

The Panthers placed a 2nd round tender on Richard Marshall and I think he would be a great pickup if they could get him, but we don't have a second round pick this year so i don't know if that would be possible.

TitanHope
03-05-2010, 08:07 PM
Titans aren't signing a WR in FA unless he can return kicks/punts. Acquiring Boldin or Marshall just ain't gonna happen, especially after bringing in Britt, Cook, and Washington last offseason. Britt was brought in to be the #1 guy, and by all accounts, he's on his was there. Lets stick with these guys and let them develop before we trade away picks, that we desperately need to rebuild the defense, for another WR.

Sad to see KVB go, but 4-years/$20+ million was overpaying. Glad he was able to get that from Schwartzy though! :D

Bodden or Shephard wouldn't be bad pickups, but Bodden isn't a Cover 2 CB and Shephard seems to have issues. Marlin Jackson is out there too, and Carlos Rodgers wants to be cut/traded as well. Jackson may be the most likely option.

I'd love to get Aaron Kampman. That's my ideal pick up. We need to go DE 1st Round to get youth, and then pick up a veteran DE in FA. I also want to re-sign Bulluck.

LenWhale wants to be played or cut/traded. Hopefully we trade him somewhere.

That's the best way to do it, and that's what I figured they're doing. FA this year is kind've like an extension of the draft in that picks may have to be used to get FA's. That's also why RFA's got higher tenders than they normally would have.

I haven't kept up with Babin, but these under the radar signings tend to pay off for the Titans. His signing wouldn't affect our draft strategy, and would likely only be used as a rotational guy.

Now, I'll use my psychic powers to influence the FO into picking up a veteran DE!

Released DE's:

DE Charles Grant (31 Solos, 5.5 Sacks, 1 FF)

UFA DE's:

DE James Hall (40 Solos, 4.5 Sacks)
DE Adewale Ogunleye (25 Solos, 6'5 Sacks, 1 FF)
DE Leonard Little (19 Solos, 6.5 Sacks)

Any one of the above listed DE's would be great. All of them are older, but can definitely still contribute in the rotation. Grant may be the best signing of the bunch because he wouldn't count against compensatory picks, and is probably the best player of the group. Best bang for the buck would definitely be James Hall.

About the 2nd round pick. I wish we would have just skipped over Mouton and used that pick on Cook instead. While both of them didn't really do anything this past season, at least Cook didn't cost us a game. (I'm still bitter)
Also, a major reason we drafted Mouton was for his return abilities, yet here we are a season later and we are looking for a returner as one of our bigger needs.
As far as the Hood signing goes, it seems like kind of an insurance deal to me. Even if we go DE in the 1st this year, we'll probably still need one more DE, so I wouldn't mind if we signed Babin either.

Yes, Rod Hood addresses our CB need as in it was a proactive move to improve the position. He adds the veteran depth and experience that was desperately needed. He also had a pretty good season last year despite coming in midseason (Titans run a different scheme than Hood played in at Philly and Arizona). Does he fix our CB need? Hell no. But having an experienced veteran who can start if needed to and two youngsters with potential (Mouton and McCourty) already waiting in the wings for a year, the immediacy of the need decreases. We are no longer are in "Reach" mode when it comes to CB, so we don't have to worry about them possibly reaching for a guy...like a random CB/PR/KR from Hawaii that no one but D-Unit knows about...

i think its yet to be seen hopefully cook is stepping his game up and will be getting more playing time this year when he was out there i liked what i saw from a receiving stand point cant remember even being asked to block too much, he is certainly a receiving threat, do i think it was a good move... well not having a 2nd round pick does suck honestly

TitanHope
03-12-2010, 04:56 PM
They pretty much said when he was drafted that Cook would be used more like a WR than a TE. He won't line up next to the OL, and will be a gap away from the OT. Far enough away to be able to hit open field in a stride or two but close enough to chip the DE if need be. So think of him as more of a TE/Slot WR hybrid.

Last year was pretty much a redshirt year for Cook. But anyone who's been following the Titans for a few years has that one player in the back of their mind that gives them pause on Jared Cook - Ben Troupe. *dark music starts playing*

http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q178/GetBad/2ND%20GALLERY/champwhiff212frjw5.gif

Yeah, that's frickin' Champ Bailey, in his prime, that he's vaulting over and leaving flailing. Super athletic TE with worlds of potential, but...he was dumb as a ******* brick. Couldn't grasp the plays and route tree that he had to operate in, so he busted despite performing a jaw-dropping play every now and then. He was a beast on Madden though! :D

Cook isn't as fluid of an athlete as Troupe was. Troupe was more like a Jumbo Athlete and Cook is more like a Jumbo WR. So Cook is more polished I think, and may have faster straight line speed. That lends well to him having success in the way they're planning on using him. From what I've heard though, Cook is more than willing to block...he's just not that good at it yet, lol. Our OL is amazing, so his blocking isn't as needed and he can do his thing on the receiving end.

I'd say slam dunk is an understatement. Morgan is picture perfect for our DL. GaTech did a lot of the same things we run in with their stunting and stuff. He'd make an instant impact in my view.

We all love JJ. He was the biggest reason we weren't in despair after seeing Haynesworth leave. We expect big things to come from him, if he can stay healthy like Voodoo said.

Bulluck can play either OLB spot in Schwartz's scheme. In fact, there really isn't any WLB/SLB difference. It's ROLB and LOLB, and both sides have the same roles. Not sure about Cunningham's scheme though. He's got tons left in the tank, in my opinion. Some say he's slowing down, but he's still playing at a high level and aside from the ACL this year, he's been extremely durable.

Titans get visit from safety Sean Jones

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20100315/SPORTS01/100315066/Titans+get+visit+from+safety+Sean+Jones

By Bryan Mullen • THE TENNESSEAN • March 15, 2010

Looking to add depth in the secondary, the Titans had Eagles free agent safety Sean Jones in for a visit and tryout.

The 28-year-old former University of Georgia standout played his first four seasons with the Browns before spending last year with the Eagles.

He started nine games last season and played in 15. In his best game last season, a win over the Giants on Dec. 13, Jones had a team-leading 14 tackles and recovered a fumble by New York quarterback Eli Manning.

Jones is known as a hard hitter who has a knack for the ball. He has 16 interceptions in 53 career starts. Since 2006, only three safeties have more interceptions than Jones — Ed Reed (24), Oshiomogho Atogwe (18) and Darren Sharper (18).

Jones is also considering Tampa Bay, where he visited last week. The Buccaneers have more openings at safety than the Titans, who have Chris Hope and Michael Griffin.

Jones’ agent Brian Mackler did not return messages seeking comment.

With depth lacking behind Hope and Griffin, Jones could be a good fit for the Titans.

Hope started all 16 games and had 81 tackles last season, tied for third on the team. Griffin started 15 games and had 77 tackles.

Vincent Fuller primarily plays nickelback and Donnie Nickey is more of a contributor on special teams. Last month the Titans re-signed Nickey to a one-year contract. Kevin Kaesviharn is a free agent.

Kicker added: In a move to add some depth, the Titans agreed to terms Monday with free agent punter/kicker Ricky Schmitt. Terms were not disclosed.

Schmitt, 24, made his NFL debut with the 49ers on Dec. 27 against the Lions, connecting on 2 of 3 field goal attempts, converting two extra point attempts and kicking off five times. He went on injured reserve the final week of the season after suffering a hamstring injury.

Schmitt previously spent time with the Cardinals, Steelers and Raiders. He attended Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

Officially physically sick of all the talk of Carlos Dunlap. We don't have the depth to take risks on a guy like him at the position. If Derrick Morgan is not there then I only want Brandon Graham at the DE position. If neither of those are there then I want us to go DT with Dan Williams and shift JJ to a DE/DT rotation role on one side with Jacob Ford and play William Hayes as an every down DE.

I either want our opening day line to be.

RE - Derrick Morgan
DT - Tony Brown
DT - JJ
LE - William Hayes

or

RE - William Hayes
UT - Tony Brown
NT - Dan Williams
LE - JJ/Jacob Ford

If Dan Williams is not available then I would like us to look at trading back and picking up some picks.

Okay the picks above are just gut feelings, these are some picks I made doing a little bit of research and stuff from meetings and junk.

First round- Derrick Morgan

I am hearing the Titans are very high on JPP but I doubt he makes it out of the top 10. I think if Derrick gets taken before this Sergio will be the pick, unless Joe Haden falls.

3rd round- Jordan Shipley-


Titans are bringing him in for a privite workout along with Dexter McCluster. I dont think Dexter makes it past the 2nd round and with Jordans bad 40 time I think he would be avaliable. He is a good steady return guy, would replace Justin Gage when his contract is up. Also plays for Texas which gives us about a 99.9 percent chance of picking him.

3rd round-Koa Misi-

The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. I havent felt this strong about the Titans picking a guy in the mid rounds since Hawk and LeRoy Harris. Workout warrior, fast, hawaiian, and plays defense! Oh and the Titans visited with him a the combine!

4th Round- Corey Peters DT Kentucky-

Another guy that makes alot of sense (Titans Radio reporting he is visiting). He is athletic and reminds me of a poor mans SenDerrick Marks. Me thinks coach Wash is going to have his hands full this offseason.

5th round- Levi Brown QB Troy-

The Titans have visited with him along with several other late round Qbs. Methinks that Kerry is gone after this year and that Jeff and Co are looking for a young back-up for Vince Young. He also went to my high school, but I am no homer, this guy has legit skills and reminds me of another SunBelt QB in Kelly Holcomb (Who was a great back-up/ emergency starter).

6th round- Dennis Rogan

We all know he is a good player, but his workouts sucked. He of course, is another guy that has visited with the Titans. He may not fall this far and he may fall even further than this pick. IDK

6th round- Ted Larsen-

IDK who he is but he is one of the O-lineman we are visiting with and he plays a position we need depth at in Center.

7th round- Patrick Stoudamire CB-

He is a athletic CB that goes to a small school. What else need be said?

7th round-David Reed Utah WR-

I have seen him play twice and came away impressed. He is not big, or fast, or strong, but he gets open. Reminds me of Roydell Williams coming out.



Only 1 CB taken and it was in the late rounds. It wouldnt be the first time we passed on a major need though.

sry though Tye Hill was visiting monday but he is tomorrow.

It'd be interesting if we signed him. He's busted, but he could provide depth and probably has great ST's potential. Playing for a bad team like the Rams may've hindered his development, but fizzling out in Atlanta isn't good. I'd be interested to see what Cecil and Marcus Robertson could do with that talent though.

Probably just updating the files though...

EDIT: After glancing over him real quick, injuries may've had something to do with his struggles. Hill's only played 1 full 16-game season in his entire career. Maybe we can get a good bargain if he stays healthy. Not everyone fits our scheme (is a "Titans DB"), but Cecil/Robertson can coach 'em up. Not to mention, Finny's swagger will be there as a boost.

Jets just got hard knocks and it got me thinking, who on the titans would like to be miked up?

For Me-

Cortland Finnegan- of course
Tony Brown- funny guy, always talking
Jared Cook- already very popular guy in the locker room.
Vince Young- duh.
Michael Griffin- down to earth, likeable.
LeRoy Harris-Well spoken guy.
Mitch King- as the undrafted player looking for a spot on the roster.
Lil' bit of CJ.
David Ball as the random guy.

EDIT: Forgot LenDale, he is a must

Just Finished watching tape on Kindle and Derrick Morgan.

Morgan is crazy. He is a BEAST against the run and really good at breaking down and making tackles. His penetration is amazing. He also strikes me as a good not great pass rush guy. I can see him with some 10+ sack seasons but he really needs to work on adding some more moves in that department. I like the Justin Smith comparison except I think Derrick Morgan has more upside as a pass rusher.

Sergio Kindle- He is explosive to say the least. I love his pass rush potential but he strikes me as mediocre against the run when he lines up at DE. He looks like has a good punch but when someone gets a hold of him he struggles to disengage. I agree with scott on him being a better 3-4 guy then a 4-3 player( he is much better when he has a chance to blow past the tackle). Also Derrick Morgan seems much better at being able locate the ball carrier and then breaking down to make the tackle.


Edit- I just looked at Scott Wrights evaluation and I agree with all of it except the part about Derrick looking uncomfortable in space. IMO he is he is better than Kindle at bringing ball carriers down 1 vs 1.

DoughBoy
03-24-2010, 07:41 PM
Carlos Dunlap- Im going to come out and say he strikes me as a DT not a DE. He is a complete mis-match inside and seems to consistently beat gaurds and centers. I also like the love his ability to knock down balls at the LOS and he actually gets pretty good pressure from the DT spot. That being said at DE he looks unimpressive. I saw no pass rush moves besides run head first at the tackle. He doesnt look very strong at all (which may put a hole in my DT plan). I really can't find anything with him against the run, but my guess he is either hot or cold agianst it depending on if he is playing a lesser athlete. His talent is obvious though.

Jerry Hughes- 5 minutes in the tape and I could tell he is the best pass-rusher I have seen thus far. He is quick as a cat and has all the moves. Great at tracking the QB and awesome at exploding off the edge. Reminds me of Freak in some ways. He has nice awareness at being able to tell if the other team is throwing or running. My concern is that he is just okay agianst the run. He stays in position and is by no means a liability, but it just seems it takes him a little longer than usual to make his way through traffic. I think this guy is going to be like Larry English last year in the fact that people are underestimating how low he will be taken in the draft.

Cortland Finnegan should be mic'd up every gameday. :D

9PCRzi6p--s

Personally, I'd love to hear Chris Hope (duh) and Michael Griffin mic'd up. Just so I can hear the exchanges between the safeties with the rest of the defense - both pre-snap and post-snap. May give some insight on why and how Griffin has such a letdown season, and why the tandem allowed so many deep passes. Tony Brown is a must, and so would VY. LenDale may not see much playing time next season, and no one can understand what the hell CJ is saying. :D I'd like Ahmard Hall though, and maybe even Kenny Britt. SenDerrick Marks is pretty funny too.

And damn Doughie, nice write ups!!! Honestly, I could see any of the 4 being the Titans' pick. I'm scared of Dunlap, but if he can succeed anywhere, it's here. Kindle and Hughes's size don't frighten me since we had Kearse pwn at only 6'4, 250 lbs. - plus, beware the Texas players. ;) Derrick Morgan is fierce!

I need answers!

I was listening to Titans radio with Jonathan Hutton and he said from what he has gathered from talks with Jeff Fisher and Mike Reinfeldt that our draft board looks like this.....

Player the Titans are most interested in...

Rolando McClain (Jonathan said the Titans identified him as a their "Blue Chip" player.)

DE is the number 1 priority if he is not available and the three guys he named were

1. JPP
2.Derrick Morgan
3.Sergio Kindle
Note: He said the Titans are not very high on Griffen (but it could just be a cover up)

He then said that if Jpp, Derrick or Kindle were not available priority number 2 would be Corner. and the titans were interested in...

1.Joe Haden
2.Earl Thomas
3.Kyle Wilson

LB outside of Rolando is priority number 3 ( I cant remember who he put as 2 and 3 but I know they are VERY high on Darryl Washington, maybe even more than Spoon.)

This is what Jonathan Hutton said the day before the combine after he talked with Fisher (they are good friends). Things have changed and I doubt Rolando is still the number 1 guy with the signing of Spoon. The way I see it If Derrick Morgan or JPP is on the board they are going to take one of them over of Haden. They may even take Kindle over Haden knowing the titans...

TitanHope
03-25-2010, 05:43 PM
I agree with Hutton. If both Morgan and JPP are gone, then it's extremely tight with Haden and the other DE's. That is, if Haden is still there. There's a good chance he's gone by then, but sometimes CB's fall.

If the coaching staff thinks Haden can start from day one at LCB, then I'd approve of the pick. Improved secondary will help the pass-rush, and getting a guy who could handle the side opposite side of Finnegan, who won't be thrown at as much with him and Griffin back there, would definitely improve the team.

The only issue I have is numbers. We're short on DE's (William Hayes, Jacob Ford, Dave Ball, and Jason Babin), and bountiful on CB's (Finnegan, Fuller, Hood, Mouton, McCourty, and possibly another vet like Tye Hill or Ken Lucas). We're going into next season without a single NFL established starting DE on the roster. At least at CB we have a #1 in Finny, an average #2 in Hood, and stud #3 in Fuller, and youth with Mouton and McCourty. We didn't draft a DE last year either, but we drafted 2 CB's. DE is just screaming to me right now.

Perrish Cox = Nice!

THANK YOU! JBond didn't like it, but Cox was the next CB off the board and was a great return man in college. Plus, he's a "Titans CB" from what I've seen of him. JB pointed out that he's got maturity issues, but he's no PacMan, and his speed questions will be nullified by our zone scheme. He was worth trading up for with our needs at CB and PR/KR.

We did have to trade OG Jake Scott, a 4th, and a 5th for Denver's 2nd, but we can always draft someone later on for Munch to develop and Troy Kropog could probably play OG. If he can't play RG, then stick him at LG. With Amano and Harris, we have a lot of wiggle room on the interior.

So we have our pass-rusher in Jerry Hughes, and our CB in Perrish Cox. Plus, we've brought in AJ Hawk. We've lost Jake Scott, Vincent Fuller, LenDale White, and David Thornton. Scott and Fuller are the only big losses. We have our comp. 3rd, two 4ths, and an early 5th too, so we can bolster other areas while still filling any needs we've created.

I hate taylor mays so so so so much.

I concur with the sentiment of this statement.

TitanHope
04-05-2010, 09:08 AM
Eh, I have nothing against Mays, but I'd rather take Kyle Wilson to play CB and keep Griffin, a former Pro Bowl/2nd Team All Pro, at his natural position at FS. If we take a S, I might rather draft Earl Thomas and move him to CB and keep Griffin at FS than move Griff to CB and drafting Mays.

My own ranking for the Titans would probably go something like this:

1) Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech - I've been tussling with this, since like others, I don't see Morgan as a premiere pass-rushing DE. Maybe a guy who'll get ya 8-9 Sacks a season, maybe reaching double-digits some seasons, and be a force against the run. But, seeing as how I think he fits our system perfectly, has a great motor, and can start from day one, I like him the most. He doesn't have as high of a ceiling as JPP, but he's not the project he is. I'm not sure we can take on a project at this time.

2) Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida - For most other teams, JPP is probably their #1 guy. He's extremely athletic, has a better motor than the likes of the Carlos Dunlaps of the world, and his upside is insane. But, he's still raw and won't be an impact guy. In my view, we won't see JPP develop into a reliable, productive starter until midway through his sophomore season (which is fairly typical of a DE to develop, see Mario Williams). I think JPP has the drive and maturity to excel in the NFL, but the downside is...he's probably dumb as a ******* brick. Admittedly not a big deal for a DE, but with how raw he is and how early we'll need him, that throws out a red flag. Still, he's worth the risk as my #2 player since if he does develop, he's a impact DE and notches 12+ Sacks a season.

3) Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan - There's absolutely nothing about Brandon Graham that scares me. Maybe the safest pick we could make, including Morgan. He's short. So what? His motor is unmatched, he's as strong as an ox, he's plenty big enough, super productive against the pass and run, and the combine showed he's a better athlete than previously thought. I think there's an extremely good chance we'd be getting KVB 2.0 with Graham. He's a day one player as well. If Morgan and JPP are gone, and Graham is available, I'll be screaming at my TV for him to be the pick.

4) Kyle Wilson, CB/RS, Boise St. - Wilson would probably be a better pick than the likes of Thomas and Mays because 1) He'll probably end up a much better CB than Griffin or Thomas would, 2) He can return punts, 3) We'll be able to keep a Pro Bowl FS at his natural position and bring in a Finnegan clone. Haden will probably be gone, but Wilson is more of a "Titans CB." He's fiesty, physical, and aggressive. The guy can run too, which really the only CB that has that physicality and speed in the NFL is Finnegan (other guys are slower. Finny I believe ran a 4.33 coming out of Samford). Plus, special teams contributions is something the Titans really value. Griffin was a spectacular ST's ace, whether it was gunning or blocking kicks. Finnegan was a Return Specialist coming out. We all know how great PacMan was at returning. And although Mouton bombed, he was a RS at Hawaii (Why didn't we take DJ Moore instead?! WHY?!!). Personally, I prefer my CB's to have return ability. A lot of times they're just more fluid athletes, at least the great Punt Returners are. Anyway, Wilson may be a bit of a reach at #16, but he's a perfect fit.

5) Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU/Sergio Kindle, DE, Texas - These guys are #5 because of their size. Now, I think they can play DE in our scheme. If Jevon Kearse could play fulltime at 255 or however much he weighed in '99, then Hughes and Kindle could play in rotation at a similar weight. Hughes is a guy I like. Doughie and I picked him in the Forum Mock, and he's arguably the best pass-rusher in the draft. Great motor, relentless pursuit, and his first step is tremendous - probably the best in the draft. Kindle is a guy we supposedly like (he's a Longhorn, so that prolly goes without saying, lol), and from what I've seen he's a great athlete. Very explosive off the line, and bends well around the edge. Either guy would be able to come in as a situational pass-rusher instantly and produce, but I'm not sure they'll be a factor against the run. Kindle has the athleticism to stand up and rush the passer, like we have Jacob Ford do sometimes (although, it's abvious Ford is rushing and isn't going to drop into coverage, so he's basically lined up on the line standing up and not in a 3-point stance, for whatever reason). If we chose either one, then I'd expect another pick to be used on a bigger DE - like a Greg Hardy, Hall Davis (who's been compared to as a poor man's Jason Jones), Brandon Lang, CJ Wilson, or Lindsey Witten (JBoogie thinks Witten can easily bulk up to 260). We may take two DE's anyway, but definitely if we take a pass-rush specialist in the 1st.


Of course, there could be wild cards - you just never know with the Titans. BPA could be a factor. That's the only way I see us going offense anyway. If we deal LenDale on draft day, they could take CJ Spiller. Spiller would easily give CJ a breather, we run the ball a **** ton, and Spiller would be an elite returner which is huge. Dez Bryant could drop, so he could be the pick if available too. He'd provide another dynamic option for VY, and again, he's a player who'd solve our returning issues. Other than those two guys, I don't see any other offensive players. Our OL is set with Roos at LT, Harris at LG, Amano at C, Scott at RG, and Stewart at RT. On DEF, guys like Haden or McClain could possibly fall, and they'd be BPA. I don't think any of those guys will likely fall to us, but I almost prepare myself for curve balls on draft day.

04-05-2010, 04:39 PM
Looking at the draft and are needs, i would say we shouldnt even be looking at offense in the first round or the third round IMO. Overall depth is the only thing we should be looking at for are offensive picks this year and picking up some guys for development.

Defense is where we will go and i dont see the need for LB in the first round for us, if we resign Bulluck which i hope we do, we will have a overall very good group of LB, and picking up someone in the third for the future is a good option. Maybe Norwood or spikes will fall to us in the third round....

Also dont see the point in taking mays, i dont see mays being able to play CB and we already tried Griffin at CB his rookie year and he is a MUCH better safety then CB. Thomas wouldnt be terrible, but i would much rather go with a true CB, Kyle Wilson would make me happy draft day. I dont Haden falling to us........ and there is always Myron Lewis in the third we could take ;)

De is another huge need as we know, we really need someone that will be able to get some pressure on the QB. JPP and graham are my favorites followed by Morgan and Hughes, but i really need to see more of all the guys before draft day.

IMO we should take Wilson if he is there......

Far as drafting a offensive player at 16, im not so sure on anymore.. I feel there's only two guys worth a shot an they might not even be available.. I like dez chances of being available more then cj spiller.. Honestly I wouldn't enjoy seeing tenn drafting another wr this early, maybe day 2 in the later rounds.. I like the guys we have on the roster, although they could use a little more deph. imo I think cj spiller would make a bigger impact then dez in dinger's offence.. Remember tenn is a run 1st offence, but I do like dez's special teams ability an can make a bigger impact there then wideout possibly.. I like spiller's return ability even more tho, an with him coming in after cj could give dfnc's nightmare's lol.. Spiller has great speed an is a threat anytime he touches similar to cj..

From what I understand, picking up Haynesworth in a trade wouldn't actually cost the acquiring team much at all. He got most of his money from that contract in the signing bonus and first year IIRC.

I'm just not sure what Washington would want for him if it's true. Our 2010 3rd, Jovan Haye, Kevin Vickerson and some 2011 conditional pick maybe?

I'm just not sure what Washington would want for him if it's true. Our 2010 3rd, Jovan Haye, Kevin Vickerson and some 2011 conditional pick maybe?

Yeah cuz your right! It wouldn't cost as much as I thought.. I still think it would be difficult to land em tho if the skins are serious about moving him! I won't be shocked if there's a few teams out there who's willing to give up a 1st an more.. Big al is still one of, if not thee most dominate dt in the league an the skins are aware of that an will use it as leverage.. With no second this year, I don't think its a smart move honestly to give up a 1st with him being injury prone, an could possibly end up a distraction.. Maybe a future 2nd, a player, an this yr's 3rd? Personally I wouldn't give up anything better then a 3rd.. Idk but there are reports the rams want in aswell.. Im actually surprised not to hear the lions mentioned.. If the the titans don't end up getting em, I at least would like to see them look into aquiring him in attempt to make the team better..

Very true. But, just to be safe, I'm still looking at the QB's when I can. I love what VY's doing, but he's still got 7 games left. If his play drops and we finish 6-10 or something, then I think it'd be extremely hard to pass on a franchise QB.

I think VY keeps it up though.

he's gonna be just as good or better next season. we dont need another qb. he has the potential to be a franchise qb. he just has to stay consistent. we need a pass rush DE. derrick morgan or brandon graham would be great

Also, just FYI guys, Terry McCormick was recently let go from the paper he worked for in their latest budget cuts, but he's good friends with JTB, the admin of the TitansCentral.net website. So JTB has arranged for TC to be an outlet for Terry, and possibly adding on a paying membership section where members could get exclusive content for Terry himself - unfilted with no editors and straight from the source info. That's not final yet, so until then he occassionally posts under the name GeorgeBlanda. He recently posted this about the Haynesworth situation in Washington:

OK, here is what i know, not based on a full article or anything, but Haynesworth's contract after the Redskins paid the $21 million bonus is actually quite reasonable for the next two to three years for any team that might trade for him. The Titans do have some interest, but aren't going to give up very much in the way of compensation. If the Skins want to dump him, Tennessee would probably listen an offer.
For what it's worth, the Haynesworth camp doesn't expect a trade at all and expect that Albert will be in Washington this year, given that they alredy have so much invested with such a front-loaded contract.

And now here's an article by Jim Wyatt: http://blogs.tennessean.com/titans/2010/04/08/get-haynesworth-and-change-reputation/

Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt has a chance to make a reputation-changing move, but only if the Redskins are willing to let him.

By trading for defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, the Titans would get the NFL’s prized free agent from a year ago back in Nashville with an affordable contract, one that was much cheaper than what the Titans offered him before he left.

And Reinfeldt would be hailed as a genius in doing so. Fair or unfair, most Titans fans view him as a frugal GM who’s often too slow in making decisions. It doesn’t matter that the Titans had no business giving Haynesworth the $100 million contract the Redskins handed over, or that some of the past free agents he let walk — Drew Bennett, Travis Henry or Travis LaBoy, for instance — all turned out to be busts with their new teams.

If Reinfeldt could get Haynesworth back with a contract that’s essentially worth just $16.2 million over the next three years, he’d finally get cut some slack by an impatient fan base.

Trading for Haynesworth is easier said than done, of course. It hinges more on what the Redskins are willing to accept than what the Titans – or anyone else, for that matter – might be willing to give. One report earlier this week indicated the Redskins are no longer shopping Haynesworth, who spent his first seven NFL seasons in Tennessee.

There are indications the Redskins were willing to take a third-round pick before they paid him the $21 million bonus on April 1. The Redskins offered Haynesworth to the Eagles as part of the trade that sent Donovan McNabb to the Redskins, but the Eagles said no thanks.

Now that Haynesworth has been paid – in all he’s collected $32 million over 14 months – it’s a matter of whether the 'Skins are willing to bite the bullet and trade him now. I still can’t see it happening, but it probably depends on how ticked off Coach Mike Shanahan is at Haynesworth, or how much influence he can have on owner Daniel Snyder, who might not be so willing to let the big guy go after making it rain a monsoon on him.

There’s no question the Titans are interested. Every team in the NFL should be if Haynesworth can be had at such a reduced price. But one big thing working against the Titans: they don’t have a second-round pick to offer as part of a trade. They have a third, and while they’d certainly be willing to give that up, the question is whether the Redskins would take it. They might be able to do a whole lot better. The Titans would not be willing to trade a first-round pick.

Titans Coach Jeff Fisher’s relationship with Shanahan could come into play. What a big favor that would be, steering Haynesworth back to Fisher and the Titans.

It still seems like a too-good-to-be-true scenario to me. But if the Titans could somehow pull it off, the front office and Reinfeldt might never be looked at the same.

Two different reports that the Titans do have interest, but that's not the big part. The big thing is Fisher and Shanny's friendship. When the Broncos drafted Cutler, Shanny called Fisher to ask for his thoughts on him and if the Broncos should select him. Heimerdinger was let go by Shanny so he could come back to Tennessee. They have a strong, mutual respect for one another. Adding in AH's history here and us being in the AFC, and this has legs.

Now, the Skins reportedly wanted a 3rd prior to the massive payout, so their price has gone up. We don't have a 2nd, so we'd probably have to give up something like our 3rd, 4th, and a 2011 3rd RD pick (Also, keep in mind that our 2011 1st RD'er has a 2010 2nd RD value, and those picks will have salary slotting, thus being more valuable. We won't be trading our 2010 1st unless it's a Draft day thing where no one we want is there, but our 2011 isn't out of the question since it could be a late 1st). Players could also be considered: DT Tony Brown (would have to sign an extension at a reasonable price), DT Jason Jones, G/C Eugene Amano, T/G/C Leroy Harris, or OT Troy Kropog could be included instead of picks - maybe even DE Jacob Ford or DE William Hayes if they need a 3-4 OLB.

I don't want to post this in the NFL Forum, since I don't have the time to deal with the 'Skins fans. But, I'm bouncing this off ya'll since ya'll are my boys. <3

Titans sign QB Chris Simms

TitanHope
04-13-2010, 10:47 AM
I dunno. It's a crap load to pay a back-up, but VY is injury prone. It's happened every season for the past 3 years. If VY pulls his hammy again and has to sit out a game or longer, and we're in the Wild Card hunt, I'm more comfortable with KC in there than Simms. It's very likely the backup QB sees active gametime this season.

Not that it really matters when we draft Levi Brown in the 5th or 6th Round.

It's less than a week before the Draft. We've kicked this horse a good bit, lol.

Here's something to chew on: If Derrick Morgan, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Brandon Graham are all available, then who do ya'll think Washburn will be wanting the most?

I'll give my answer later....it's JPP! Haha!

Personally, I'd rank them:
1. Derrick Morgan
2. Brandon Graham
3. Jason Pierre-Paul

Washburn's ranking (if I had to guess):
1. Jason Pierre-Paul
2. Derrick Morgan
3. Brandon Graham

Even though I'm concerned about the idea of taking JPP in the first round, I will ultimately trust Washburn's scouting. He (along with Munchak) has proven time-and-time again that he knows what he's doing and can get a lot out of his D-Lineman.

Complex
04-19-2010, 01:01 PM
We probaly draft JPP if all 3 are available.

So what workout warrior will we draft this year? It seems like we always do chris henry,CJ,cook etc

TitanHope
04-19-2010, 03:11 PM
Yup, I guarantee Wash has a man crush on JPP. He was my guess if ya highlight my previous post. :cool:

Another guess would be Dunlap. I think Washburn has JPP and Dunlap pretty high. And while I love Wash, he's not infallible, and may even be a bit over-rated. We got lucky with KVB, but he couldn't get Haynesworth to reach his potential - Chuck Smith had to refine his technique and said AH's set of pass-rush moves was terrible for a NFL DT. Odom took forever to develop and reach his potential (injuries had a part to play though). Randy Starks was a bust here, but went to Miami and is now one of their better players. Plus, Wash was extremely high on Jammal Anderson when he came out, and absolutely gushed over him (then again, maybe Wash could've gotten more out of him?). But with his misses, he has his hits like with Tony Brown, Jason Jones, Jacob Ford, and Dave Ball. William Hayes and Sen'Derrick Marks look like they're on their way as well.

If we pick a DE, Wash will prove his mettle based on the success of that DE. I still think he's one of the best DL Coaches in the league, but I wouldn't put him up with Munch. Munch is hands down the best OL Coach in the league, in both scouting and coaching, and rarely gets its wrong (Nailed Roos, Stewart, Amano, Harris, made Loper an ideal swing man, and now will work wonders with Kropog). He has a prototype that he looks for and skill sets that he can develop, and he hand picks those players out of the pool. When asked about the pick of Troy Kropog in the 4th RD, Jeff Fisher's reply was, "That's a Munch pick," and that was that. Same answer for Ryan Durand. His opinion is near gospel.


As for the workout warriors Complex, I'm not sure. No 2nd RD pick makes it so we can't make a huge reach ala Chris Henry, but we could still pick workout warriors in the 3rd. Maybe DB Chris Cook, DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, or CB Sam Shields? I still think we come out with two DE's in this Draft, so maybe DE Lindsey Witten (not really any workout warriors out of the mid-rounds DE's, but Witten had a great workout and owns great physical measurables - 2nd longest arms among DE's and ran a 4.71 40). Maybe a speedy RS like WR Jacoby Ford. Also, OLB Dekota Watson is one to watch.
