    2008 draft thread

    I know it's early, but I thought I'd create a thread where we can all come and talk about potential players for the Titans to draft.

    Ill start off with some of the more obvious guys we should be looking at.
    First and foremost I still believe we need a go to Wr. Some guys to look at are Earl Bennett, Desean jackson, Adarious bowman, malcolm kelly, limas sweed. we need playmakers desperately.
    on the defensive side our D-line could potentially use upgrades, so chris long, lawrence jackson, frank okam and sedrick ellis are all potential players for us to scout.

    What do you guys or who do you guys think we should be looking at at this point.

    Some thoughts...

    I'm not a big fan of our 1st Round Pick...RB Chris Johnson. He's definitely a speedster. However, after spending high picks on RB the past couple of years, I was really hoping that we'd address some other need positions. Johnson seems like a situational RB at best; and though he has skills at KR/PR, we just signed Chris Carr to handle those duties. Ultimately, while Johnson could pan out just fine, I think DE, WR, CB, & DT were all bigger needs...and there were still great players left at many of those positions. I wish we would've taken DE Philip Merling or CB Mike Jenkins here.

    I like the Jason Jones pick. He'll play DE for us; but if he could bulk up a little, he could fill-in a little at DT too (which is what he played in college). Depending on whether we address DT in the draft, I wouldn't be surprised to see Jones or Tony Brown playing DE on early downs, allowing Javon Kearse to come in on passing situations.

    Starting to really like are 1st round pick, but this also mean they really don't have much faith in Henry. Someone to share time at DE with kearse was a must, but i really don't know much about this guy from emu. Maybe we can get Earl in the third. But johnson i like because of his ability to be a recevier to. and he was also my third favorite back in the draft.

    Whoo! Draft Day! Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I feel like a kid on Christmas...and it's still 12+ hours away!

    Well, I may as well post my final ideal Titans draft:

    1) Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
    2) Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
    3) Traded to move up in 1st for Mendenhall
    4a) Kendall Langdord, DE/DT, Hampton
    4b) Jonathan Goff, MLB, Vanderbilt
    4c) Eric Young, OL, Tennessee
    5) Corey Lynch, D, App. State
    6) f/ Bryce Fisher, DE, Seattle
    7) Mr. Irrelevant...I dunno, cuz I'm tired. Probably a CB.

    I dunno if it's realistic, but it's my Draft so hah! I think Mendenhall could be our playmaking RB and a beast of a RB. Malcolm Kelly may be slow on the track, but he's perdy dang good on the field. I've liked Langford for months, and he has the frame to put on more pounds and play UT - similar to Kevin Carter. Goff is a stud SEC MLB, and I think he could challenge Fowler/Tulloch for playing time. Eric Young could add depth at all OL with his talent and versatility.

    Corey Lynch is a badass motha' trucka', and he'll be a beast on special teams! I've seen him play in person twice - One of which was the championship game against Joe Flacco and Delaware -, and each time he's been dominant. Complete ball hawk who can cover as well as stop the run. I truly think he can start in the NFL, but he'll in the least add depth and special teamer. Needless to say, I'm a fan...

    Night all. For the Draft cometh in the morn...

    Hahahahahaha! Thats awesome. I love that movie too.

    Deeds: Its no problem sir. He just needs to watch the language in front of the ladies.

    QB's Dad: Oh, I see. Well, I'll remind him where he comes from. Thank you.

    QB's Dad: *unfastens belt* You used foul language in front of a lady?!

    QB: No daddy, NO!!!

    Deeds: *hears screaming coming through the phone and gives it a funny look that only Adam Sandler can create*

    Lol, can you imagine? There's be no cranky WR's under Fat Al's watch!

    "I want more money, or I want to be traded. Thats it," said the star receiver. "If that means I have to sit out, then thats what I'm gonna do. Ain't no one gonna change my... *STOMP!*"

    Mayo's kinda like my Michael Griffin crush that I had last year. Griff was one of my favorite players last year, but I figured we'd never pick him since we had other needs. Nevertheless, I thought he would be a stud...mainly because his name is Griffin...what a badass name...

    Anyway, Mayo's like that. I think Mayo could be the DROY, as he'll get on the field very early whether at MLB or SLB and perform well as LB's tend to transfer from college to the pros easier than other positions. Plus, he's so versatile, I bet he could play WLB. A player like that will help a DEF instantly, so if we picked him, I wouldn't be upset since I know he's at least going to help. It's just that I, once again, can't see us passing over WR, DE, and a few other positions for a guy who'll be our MLB.

    Oh, and in other news, Haynesworth wants us to pick Malcolm Kelly in the 1st RD. He also wants us to trade for Ocho Cinco, and draft a burner runningback, along the lines of LDT, Laurence Maroney, and league renowned speedster...Marion Barber? Yeah...anyway, Fat Albert still isn't satisfied with the off-season, saying that we've only canceled out player's we've lost and haven't really improved. I can't disagree with him and am a bit refreshed to see our "Franchise Player", and best player period at that, speak his mind. As long as he doesn't get carried away...

    Scott's newest Mock is by far my favorite. Limas Sweed, Dre Moore, and Jeremy Thompson would be awesome. Fisher has alluded to them going offense, and selecting 2 defensive players would go against that.

    The TitansCentral boards are obsessed with Chris Johnson, RB out of ECU. To the point where they want to use our 1st RD pick on him, even if guys like Merling, JStew/Mendenhall, or any other WR are available.

    Tis true. Thanks Geo. That slipped my mind. But, we could probably just substitute the Titans 3rd RD pick in for their 2nd RD pick, and detract the Falcons supplemental 3rd RD pick to even out Option #1. But then I would be against a trade like that, as is we trade down, I want to end up with more picks than we began with.

    Option #2 would be my preferrence.
