    It's not that I think he's not good. I just don't think he's as advertised.

    I've seen him get picked on too often in 1vs1.

    What are the chances Locker is available in the second round?

    What are the chances anyone actually knows the answer to that? Just kidding, I still think he'll go in the second round, but who knows?

    QB values in the draft are always overinflated, but Clausen and McCoy did make it past the first round last year... Who knows. I bet one of the top tier guys slides out, but a lot of the people ahead of us in the 2nd need QBs too. They get 2 chances to snag a QB right before us.

    Greg Cox on why he believes the Titans will take Julio (pretty much that the QB selection at 8 is awful):

    Mike Munchak has been named the new head coach and I can certainly understand his quick move to fire offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger. He is in charge now and does not want a strong personality who he, as former offensive line coach, leapfrogged over to be a dissenting voice.

    The first order of business for a new head coach is to figure out the quarterback position. Vince Young is still gone after helping to end Jeff Fisher's long tenure as head coach dating back to Houston. Unfortunately, their best option with Blaine Gabbert off the board is a player compared to Young - Cam Newton.

    Quarterback has to wait, but running back Chris Johnson led this team with 42 receptions last year. They gambled on Randy Moss when Kenny Britt was out. The result was six receptions for 80 yards.

    In half of their games the Titans failed to score more than 20 points. That's not going to cut it in a division competing with Indianapolis and Houston. Jones is a better talent than he is being given credit for. He would improve this offense is they can find a decent quarterback.

    The Titans aren't taking a wide receiver in round 1. That is just stupid. I feel stupid even discussing it.

    In that scenario, you would trade back, not draft Julio Jones.

    Trading down would be awesome. We just never do it. Plus, we almost always draft what people least expect (other than Morgan). You think RB was our biggest need when we drafted CJ??

    I remember that day.... i was "what in the world are we doing?!" the next day, I went to buffalo wild wings for lunch with some friends and we were discussing the draft picks.... I was pretty embarrassed at the time saying "yeah.. we got Chris Johnson... as if we needed another HB"

    BOY was i wrong!

    No, but offensive speed was, so he fit. Honestly I felt like we would draft Desean Jackson there for that reason.

    Yeah I had us picking Desean Jackson as well. I know DJ is good but I'll take CJ anyday.
