    Did anybody happen to see this? I thought it was next week and I totally missed all the coverage about it. I haven't found any talk about it on the web so I'm curious if anyone has anything they can share on it.

    I watched it, stayed up with the practices all week.

    Just going over the defenses, some stand out players to my eyes and some lack luster ones as well

    Mike Martin DT- dude beasted, 6'1- 300 but super aggressive, taking on doubles all day. Lined up as a NT in the 43 look but would be a complete monster as an under tackle taking on a single. He's my favorite prospect for us right now. Him and Casey would wreak havoc.

    Coples- had 4-5 outstanding plays, kinda seems to be inconsistent. I think he takes plays off, high ranked talent, very well could bust if he doesn't love the game.. And I question that.

    Brandon Thompson - DT- stand out player at NT. Looked good in the game, didn't have any big plays but fair well against the other competition.

    Ta'amu- NT - super strong big kid, but doesn't seem to use it. He gets held up by doubles and doesn't seem to have any pass rush moves.

    Melvin Ingram - DE/OLB - short arms, didn't impress in game, had a good practice week. Not sure he is a pass rush specialist like he has been touted. Didn't have a big shine game, but seemed to have a couple plays. Faded in with the others.

    Courtney Upshaw- DE/OLB - good week, blew up defenders constantly all week. Not sure were he is going to fit on a team. 34 rush backer seems to be his strong suit. Top 20 pick all day.

    Vinny curry - DE/OLB - another prospect that stood out to me, did well at rushing the passer, had a few good run stops. Would be a value 2nd round guy, could easily sneak into the first.

    Most impressive player? Wasn't able to watch the Senior Bowl or the practices. Anyone you see us drafting?

    The most impressive would go to isiah pead rb/ return man and Joe Adams WR. They both blew the game up.

    I can see us drafting Martin. He just seems like he belongs on the titans. Belongs in a baby blue uni. Sure hope so.

    He was most impressive to me. I'd love to grab him in the 2nd but I can see him going late 1st/early 2nd.

    I watched all the practices and game as well.

    Ingram and Upshaw both need to go to 3-4 teams and be used as rush OLBers. Neither of them have a really quick first step.

    Coples certainly is the most well rounded DE, but I thought Vinny Curry had the quickest first step/great anticipation of the snap.

    My favorite DT/NT was Ta'amu he actually reminds me of Jurell Casey with his surprising burst for such a big guy. I also liked Martin and Thompson as well.

    I really thought Cordy Glenn looked great and would not be upset at all if we drafted him in the 1st. He could play OG to start then replace Stewart at RT when his contract expires. Kelechi Osemeli also impressed me and I think he could play OG as well.

    Chris Rainey was very impressive all week playing more WR then RB. Really caught the ball well and was getting separation easily. Adams had a tremendous game. I'd be happy adding either of them to our WR corps.

    I was not overly impressed with the safeties or the Lbers.

    I don't think it would be a reach to take Curry in the 1st. He is really disruptive and consistantly beat his man. No way he falls to us at 52 in the 2nd round. I bet before it's all said and done he's projected to go right around where we pick.

    Watching the game, my opinion actually fell on Ben Jones, C from Georgia. He got beat many times and I have to wonder if it hurt his draft stock. I was much more impressed with Velachos, the C from Alabama. I prefer us taking him now over Ben Jones.

    we could get him in the 3rd and he would be an instant starter...i've had him in one of my mocks(even though they dont matter and are just for fun now) before and still feel like we could get him...
