    Is this a Fair Assessment?

    Besides Britt who obviously was a first round pick, this organization got nothing out of the draft in recent years...
    They simply don't know anything about scouting receivers!

    Someone read my mind i was just about to post about this.We have been sorry for years at WR going back quite a bit.The excuse use to be we had sucky QB's since Mcnair left but Collins isn't here anymore.We finally have a good quarterback who will suffer from no one to throw to.

    Everyone saw the topics before and during the season i keep putting up about needing WR's.We are handicapped on offense by no receivers and a back who can't gain more than 2 yards.

    Every draft I watch us pass on guys who I thought would have been great for us, and we draft a DB from hawai who probably would have gone undrafted. Every year it happens...its BS and I know there are plenty of fans who agree with this thread

    Look at my profile, notice it says "former Titans WR" LOL, they do suck at it, been saying this for YEARS. Just wish one of those idiots in Nashville would notice the fans know more than the dumb azz "scouts".

    It's not just WR's, it's ALL offensive positions.

    Chris Henry
    Paul Williams
    Tyrone Calico
    Jake Shifino (spelling?)
    Lendale White
    Vince Young
    Ben Troupe
    and the list goes on and on....

    Hits: Kenny Britt, Chris Johnson, Bo Scaife (he was once good)

    Suspect: Hawkins, Cook, D. Williams, Stevens

    yep.. WRs will definitely stop the run and the pass... especially those checkdown passes that go 10+ yards..

    Remember us having Devin Hester on the phone during the draft and then telling Hester nevermind because we gonna pick Lendale White.Now that was boneheaded.

    Could've had Devin Hester but went with Lendale White.

    Of course we also passed on Randy Moss for Dyson.

    Imagine if Mcnair would've had Randy Moss and Eddie George on offense.

    to be honest... i dont think hester is all that good... not a good WR either... all the bears games i watch he's always dropping something.. he may run it PRs are all he's good for.. no way he's getting anything back with everything sailing over our heads in KRs...
    Moss for Dyson still annoys me.... Moss might've been in the endzone on that last drive ><... but his character was an issue at that time and I don't blame them.. seemed like every week i read something about Moss in trouble in the paper at Marshall...

    Even during McNair, our WR's were average/ below average.
    Mason wasen't really elite by any standards.
