    Honestly, I see Mingo going #2 overall. New Jags coach will use him in the hybrid role they used Bruce Irvin in. They need a passrusher, and Mingo provides that. If I was the Jags, i'd take Werner... but I see Mingo in a Jags uni.

    I really hope you're right. They'd be doing us a favor by removing a shiny little object our ADD addled front office could be distracted by.

    We'd be foolish to take Mingo, our FO has already said they think we're set at DE (atleast for the first round) since we have two starters... but hey we were set at WR last year and look what happened.

    The only DE i'd take @ 10 is Werner.

    I brought up Fluker's domination of Mingo on titans report and some guy said that it was unfair to judge given the size difference.

    So Mingo is worthy of the top pick but the guy who made Mingo his b*tch is not?

    Well that guy was obviously a retard. Mingo is going to be at a size disadvantage every time he takes the field.

    He's got some definite upside it just depends if he can get bigger, if Titans decide to not go OG in the 1st then Mingo would be up there on my board.

    The issue with Mingo is if you think he is Sam Irvin or Von Miller. Miller is a solid 4-3 SAM linebacker when he is not rushing the passer. Rushing the passer is all Irvin dd for Seattle.

    Irvin was in on 17 tackles all season and had 8 sacks. Has the nfl gotten that pass oriented that a guy who does nothing else would be worth a top 10 pick?

    If we don't go OG, I'd love Dee Milliner or Xavier Rhodes.

    I'm really starting to like Rhodes but idk about CB in the top 10. I rather address one of the lines but if not Rhodes would be a great pick. I like Milliner, he's a tad too high imo or maybe I really suck at evaluating but can't believe he's really the top CB. His play his first 2 years was yikes, just kind of scared me off a bit.

    Color me absolutely surprised that Rhodes ran as fast as he did. Still not sure he has the hips to play corner, but he definitely has the makeup speed.

    Still like Trufant more than any CB in this draft.
