    Well, that's it

    The draft is all over (for us). What are your over all thoughts?

    I think we may have had a few good picks, but this draft didn't meet my expectations at all. I am really disappointed we didn't get turner, but I'm glad we didn't see the farm for him. We need to make some noise with trades or June 1st cuts, etc. We're nowhere near where we need to be to improve from last season. I'm still not sure about MR.

    I think this draft is very risky. Pretty much sucked as far as expectations...I guess we're calling Chris Brown? Screw the Chargers and their greedy arses...now they don't get squat next season when Turner leaves them in the dust.

    I'd give it a C to a C-. I like griffin but prefer Nelson if we had to go safety. I loved Bowe - he fit the offence perfectly with his blocking intangibles for young's running. I thought we reached for Henry but he's similar size to Turner but without the pro experience. Williams I'm not sure of because he doesn't have a position. Centre was a good move with the ageing mawae but I aren't happy with 3 WRs AGAIN. I do not like the CB. I love the Otto pick.

    Edit: I like the pick of Ford at DE too, a pass-rushing threat.

    I'm intrigued by a bunch of players, specifically Henry, Williams, and Ford. Griffin and Harris were also really solid picks (I love Griffin), as was Smith at CB. Overall, I'm excited to see what these guys can do.

    I think we did okay. After the shock and surprise has died down from day one, the day two picks were solid.

    Go titans!

    I think we need to look at this draft as part of a building process. We lost our most productive running back, receiver, and best cover corner. I think we addressed each of those losses in a way to at lease make us not feel those losses.

    This team has too many holes to fill and going 8-8 last year was a great accomplishment but no way was this an 8-8 team talent wise. I think this draft has gone a long way toward upgrading our talent.

    How can you not like the CB???

    He was one of the best CB's in the SEC last year. He had 8 ints and was named all SEC defense. He hand a hamstring injury that slowed him down for the combine and he still ran a 4.5 or something like that.

    For as cheap as we're getting him, excellent value.
