    Almost every mock I see, has us taking D'Qwell in the 2nd round. MLB in our defense has traditionally been an expendable position. A 2 down player would more than appease me. I don't see Floyd investing a first, a second and huge money in our starting LBs.

    In my mind no, but on the other hand I can see us drafting BPA. Depending on how Stewart, Bell and Loper have developed I wouldn't mind to see a Marcus McNeil drafted here.

    I think it's BPA but MLB has to be among those positions which might get extra consideration. Here's the thing, do you want to use a second-round pick on a guy who is on the field 60-65% of the time on defense? The Titans stunk against the run last year so maybe so. But I think the free agents brought in opens up a lot of options.

    Looking at D'Qwell, he isn't a player you have to take off the field in passing situations. He's not a liability in coverage in that he can be effective covering backs or tight ends. Many teams are viewing him as a weakside backer from what I've read. If the Titans can pick up a third linebacker with Bulluck and Thornton's speed and range, why not in the second. That would be a trifecta.

    I would rather see a Jason Allen or Max-Jean Giles or Marcus McNeil taken. Even a Joseph Addai...

    I agree
    I would rather have the 3rd or 4th rated safety

    But one of them would have to come out, unless we change our philosophy to Tampa 2 or some othe scheme that allows us to keep 3 linebackers in obvious passing situations against 3 receiver sets.
  7. Fry Hatin' is what I do.

    we've done that before when we had the speed at LB. we've used a 3-3-5 to help against the run out of three WR sets.

    If we had a speedy Mike, I think I'd like to see him stay on the field more than usual. Hey, who ever thought we'd give big FA money to a small, speedy OLB? Maybe philosophies are changing somewhat.

    Jason Allen

    Why does everyone push Jason Allen so much? He has Mike Echols written all over him.
