best rb in draft
ok maybe cuz he from my city I might be a tad biased....
Right now we'd draft 9, 10, or 11 (depending on strength of schedule). I'm assuming we'd be 9th, since we have both Jax and Hou twice on our schedule. Teams ahead of us that will could go QB: Houston, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Oakland, & Minnesota.
I'd say it's a lock Houston goes Bridgewater. I'm left to wonder where Clowney goes, #2 is STL (from Wash) who has two great DEs. I could see him falling to Atlanta @ #5.
Some prospects that should be available at our pick:
OT: Jake Matthews, Cyrus Kouandjio, & Taylor Lewan
QB: Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, Tajh Boyd, or Derek Carr
DL: Kony Ealy or Louis Nix III
LB: CJ Mosley
I'm on wanting a QB, but I think all the QBs will be gone by then.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rams cut Bradford and take Derrick Carr to be honest. Bradford is average, injury prone, and set to make 17 million next season. You'd be hard pressed to have me believe that Fisher and co want to pay that much for Sam Bradford.
I think they should, but I don't think they will.
We can hope that David Fales falls to the second in that case.
Walt has us taking an OT:
Tennessee Titans: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
The Titans are fine at offensive tackle right now, but Michael Roos and David Stewart will be free agents in 2015 and 2014, respectively (the latter has a voidable year after this upcoming season). They'll need to retool at the position if they don't re-sign either of the two.
I'm bumping Greg Robinson up to the No. 2 tackle slot. Robinson has been amazing during Auburn's improbable run to the national championship - though Alabama should be playing Florida State in the BCS Championship.
So does Charlie:
Tennessee Titans: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
The Titans could have some turnover at offensive tackle before long. Ruston Webster showed how much he values the offensive line by taking Chance Warmack in the top 10 last year and signing Andy Levitre to a big contract. Tennessee will need good play out of its tackles to protect the franchise's investments in Jake Locker and Chris Johnson. Here, the Titans could reunite Kouandjio with Warmack.
Kouandjio (6-6, 311) is a very talented prospect who could rise higher once he gains experience and develops his technique. The sophomore was Alabama's starting left tackle in 2012 and the reason that the team could move Barrett Jones from left tackle to center. Kouandjio had some pass-protection issues and allowed some sacks in 2012, but the first-year starter also blasted open running lanes and showed the potential to be a quality pass-protector.
Thus far in 2013, Kouandjio has showed that he has elite talent even if he isn't a finished product yet. Kouandjio had some hiccups against Virginia Tech and Texas A&M, but he also has displayed some stretches of dominance. Kouandjio was phenomenal against LSU as he crushed the Tigers in the ground game and was rock solid as a pass-protector. The junior should only continue to get better.
Kouandjio is a very good athlete who has a high ceiling with a ton of upside. It would not be surprising if he rises a lot higher before the 2014 or 2015 NFL Draft.
Walts a *******, but I don't think he's far off on this one. Depending hiw free agency goes, our first round pick will be either qb, OT, or DE.
If we draft Johnny Manziel I'll cry tears of utter joy and never question Titans management ever again for as long as I live.
