    We all have opinions about who the Titans should pick, but I think Webster goes with the best pick available despite need. I would be most happy with an explosive DE, but would also be happy with OL. Anyone else think ol Ruston follows this formula?

    I can definitely see us going BPA. I'm not sure if Ruston was responsible for the Wright pick but if so that tells me he went with the highest value. There had to have been something with DeCastro that didn't check out. And considering he ended up getting hurt and not playing much I'd say there was.

    BPA is a cliche. Teams may fill a lesser need before filling a huge need to get a better player, but 99% of the time, teams draft for need.

    Locker was a pick to fill a need, but Wright really seemed to be a BPA pick.

    Wright, Michael Floyd, Alshon Jeffrey, and Stephen Hill visited. The team clearly felt that WR was a need. We had about a million threads about WR's last year and most everyone had a WR somewhere in their mock. We, as fans, felt WR was a need.

    Yes but not in the first round. Not THAT big of a need.
