    I'm not saying the Titans won't draft him, but just from what I've seen Barr has been over hyped. Would much rather have a guy like Mack. Mack is a playmaker. He is an expert at creating turnovers.

    There's something wrong with every prospect, Barr's good far outweighs his bad. But I do see what youre saying, I watched his Stanford game, very average looking in that game. That was a good game to me because he misses plays all day, shows you the worst you can expect from the guy. But still at the end of the day the kid played his heart out.

    If Mack and Barr are both sitting there at 11, which is unlikely, I would go with Mack. I'm not against Barr I think it's a win win. Obviously we have some UCLA ties so I think that could sway us more towards Barr but I think Mack will translate to the NFL faster which is what we need. But overall I would be happy as hell with Barr.

    I've wanted Barr since about midseason, but I don't think he'll be there at #11.

    Hey, I am with you guys. As long as they don't reach for a bad QB or an OT outside of the best top 2, I would be happy with Mack or Barr...Dream situation. I am curious to see how the combine will shake up these Mock Drafts.

    Love Barr. I was raving over him last year. One thing to keep in mind is that this is his 2nd year of defense, so I'm sure there is room to grow with his technique and instincts.

    I can't see him dropping to 11, but I'd be super pumped to get him or Mack.

    Getting either one of those guys would go a long way towards making this defense elite. If they're there we gotta take them, period.

    and I hope that is Barr. Pretty much decided he is the guy I want, and Mack comes in second.

    Mack over Barr but I wouldn't be mad if we end up with Barr. Mack is a surefire star and I think Barr has that potential but has a higher chance to bust.

    I know of another UCLA OLB that was supposed to go that high a few years back. Ended up slipping all the way to the second round. His name is Akeen Ayers ;)

    And he ended up being benched in Cleveland.
