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

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

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

I hope the kid does well and doesn't have any attitude problems but if you honestly think we should have taken him with Steve Smith on the board then you're insane.

            Same goes with Paul Williams. With Charles Johnson staring us right in the face there was no need to take a WR/CB tweener. This new GM sucks. End of story.
            What makes you say this? Nice to have a little source or something to go with your attack on Henry. So far Fisher and co have gone out of their way to say he is a character guy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                • CHRIS HENRY WILL BE A 1600 YARD BACK IN 3 YEARS AND U CAN QUOTE ME

                  i have all the faith in the world in him

                  he is a steal of the draft, and i dont care who agrees with me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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