This will be a little more relaxed over the weekend. We're to the point where the picks aren't going to make or break your draft anyway.

I'm here so I'll text Canes and get a pick up soon.

Can't control-f on my phone, pretty sure Hamilton wasn't taken I looked through the picks but if he was let me know I'll change the pick.

Don't have to at this point in the draft. I always like to pick developmental/athlete type players in the last couple of rounds, and that's 100% what Chris Greenwood is. DIII player, he showed up at Michigan's Pro day at 6012, 193 and tore it up.

Greenwood, the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association defensive player of the year for Albion, has enjoyed an outstanding month, starting with Michigan's pro day March 15, when he ran a 4.34 40, had a vertical jump of 43 inches and a broad jump of 11-foot-2. - David Goricki, The Detroit News

Josh Buchanan has a 5th round grade on him. Don't think he gets past the Jags' 5th.

Eh, I didn't know who it was. Just saw the last pick had been made like 5 hours ago, and figured someone wasn't paying attention. No offense meant.

Titans 2012 Fantasy Draft: In Review

#20 - Quentin Coples, DE - North Carolina

Easily could've gone in the top ten, so the value alone at #20 makes this a good pick. He's a prospect who could turn out to be better than Jason Jones, who played a similar role as Coples likely will but left in free agency. Coples will immediately feature in the D-line rotation, and between Coples, Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan, the Titans are suddenly pretty deep and talented at defensive end.

#52 - Doug Martin, RB - Boise State

I'm a big fan of Doug Martin, and if it weren't for the NFL's obvious shift towards Madden-style football he'd be a first-round pick. I still won't be surprised if he goes late first in this year's draft, but at #52 I couldn't pass up the value. Chris Johnson is a phenomenal talent, as everyone knows, but he's a 185lb feature back. That's just not sustainable in the NFL; it's remarkable that he's been as durable as he has been. Tennesee's running game was dismal last season despite having perhaps the most explosive running back in the league. Javon Ringer, their second-leading rusher, didn't even have 200 rushing yards. Chris Johnson needs more support than that. So I drafted Martin thinking Johnson stays the clear focal point of the offense, but the Titans are now freed up to be a lot more creative with him; they can gameplan more with the intention of getting him in explosive situations, rather than having to rely on him for every yard gained on the ground. Doug Martin will come in and be good for 50 yards on the ground right away, keeping Johnson's legs fresh and tiring out the defense, so instead of having to just imagine how Chris Johnson might be destroying a given defense if only he wasn't so tired and overpowered, you've got an actual power back for the power running, and you allow Chris Johnson to focus on plays which take more advantage of his speed. I'm perfectly fine with the idea of him getting fewer touches per game if it means his ypc going back up into the 5.0-range. In other words, drafting Doug Martin ought to make Chris Johnson more explosive - when you have player as rare as Chris Johnson, you don't want to get stuck in a mindset of thinking you don't need anyone else at that position; you want to keep putting the players in place which will give you the highest return on Chris Johnson. If he retires tomorrow he'd have been worth the first-round pick that was spent on him; drafting a guy to take the physical burden off of him will hopefully mean that Titans fans will still be able to see that breathtaking speed years from now.

#82 - T.Y. Hilton, WR/Ret - Florida International

You think an offense with a 4.24 player on it is explosive? How about another guy who ran a 4.34 at his Pro Day and has 6 return TDs to his name, as well as TDs passing, rushing and even throwing? With T.Y. Hilton you get a 4-year starter with exceptional production, and not simply total yards, but lots of big plays (scoring catches of 74 and 83 yards in the same game against Lousiville, the return TDs, etc.). The Titans already have a legitimate no. 1 receiver in Kenny Britt, assuming he can regain his pre-injury form, and Nate Washington stepped up in his absence last year and proved he's at least a valuable no. 2. Which means there's a perfect role for Hilton in this offense - he won't be asked to carry the team, he'll be called upon to do the things he does best. The Titans will be able to move him all around the field and feature him as their return man. And if you picture an offense with Chris Johnson in the backfield, Britt and Washington out wide, Jared Cook in at tight end and T.Y. Hilton in the slot, you're talking about a whole lot of speed on the field all at once and some pretty significant matchup problems for the defense. Britt and Washington will command the attention of other team's best covermen, leaving Hilton's 4.3 speed and Jared Cook's 4.5 speed in the middle of the field for whatever unfortunate safeties or nickel backs don't have the cover skills to work on the outside. For a young QB like Jake Locker, that's a dream scenario. Not to mention that the Doug Martin pickup will ideally get Chris Johnson back closer to '09 form, making that lineup even faster and more explosive.

#115 - Jaye Howard, DT - Florida

Color me confused, but for the life of me I can't figure out why a 6'3" 300lb defensive tackle who ran an official 4.82 at the combine, showed the requisite strength with 24 bench reps, improved every year in college and in his senior season posted 65 tackles, 10 for a loss and 5.5 sacks - in the SEC - isn't a hotter commodity. In real life, he's one of those guys who hasn't gotten a lot of buzz who I could see popping into the second round. I posted this earlier, but he reminds me quite a bit, athletically as well as stylistically, of LaMarr Houston, who Oakland picked in the second a couple of years ago. With the addition of Jaye Howard, in my opinion, the Titans could have one of the best young D-lines in the NFL.

#155 - Chad Diehl, FB - Clemson

I'm sure a lot of people saw the video of him I posted a little while ago, so he's definitely one of "my guys." I considered picking him in the fourth, but thought I probably valued him higher than anyone else, and Jaye Howard was just too enticing. When he was there in the 5th, he offered too much value to me as a pure football player for me to pass up. Tennessee already has a pretty good fullback in Ahmard Hall, but he's 32 and Diehl looks like he has the potential to be a real mauler as a lead blocker. He's not going to offer much with the ball in his hands, but this is another pick that I think will help to take full advantage of Tennessee's most valuable player, Chris Johnson. You pair him with a 225lb running back to help him wear out defenses, that 4.2 speed is going to feel more like 3.9 to defenders at the end of a game when he's still fresh. You put a 260lb fullback in front of both of those guys who has the ability to truck defenders out of their shoes (and helmets, for that matter) and you have a potentially lethal run game. And besides that, even if Ahmard Hall starts for a few more years, with Diehl you've got a guy who is going to play on all of your special teams, be worry-proof insurance for Hall, and maybe even provide some depth at linebacker. In my mind, if there's a guy available in the 5th round you know you can start on your team, you take him.

#190 - Chris Greenwood, CB - Albion

Division III player, Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Year. Showed up at Michigan's Pro Day at 6'1" 193, and then ran a 4.41 40, had a 43 inch vertical and an 11'02" broad jump. And had 16 bench reps. That's about as elite a corner workout as you're going to get, so in the 6th round it's well worth it. He dominated at his level of play, so it's just a matter of whether the massive transition will work. With those tools, I feel comfortable taking the chance and seeing what we've got to work with.

I really like your first 3 picks.

Coples is a good player who is kinda boom or bust but if he turns out good would be a big steal. Martin is great value in the mid second and will create a great 1-2 punch with Chris Johnson. Finally, TJ Graham will be a nice slot receiver in between Britt and Williams.
