    Pissed that we just drafted a 6'6" 270lb beast that moves like a corner? Yeah, that would suck!

    Here's to hoping our "scheme" of having DB's play 15 yards off the receiver every down chnages next year. :beerbang:

    I can't speak to Trufant as I havent watched enough of him, but I really like Rhodes. If we dont take him at 10, Miami's got him at 13. The one thing I remember when I watched some FSU games this year was how big the dude looked, I mean that guy is a beast. I was very impressed with his play. On a similar note I was unimpressed with Werner's play when I watched FSU games.

    I prefer Trufant to Rhodes, I mean anybody would look good when Bjoern Werner and Tank Carradine are in front of them chasing QB's.

    I prefer that we cut Amano and restructure Matt's contract. Get Antoine Winfield and draft Chance at 10. If we get a stud DE at 10 and draft Larry Warford in the 2nd, I can live with that also.

    I watched the FSU vs Clemson game and I'm fairly certain Hopkins tore it up against Rhodes a few times and that kind of scares me off a bit. The 2 Washington games I watched this year they talked up Trufant a bit but he looked alright. I missed the USC game and apparently he shut down Lee but not really certain. So just based off that and the reports/film I've been able to find online I still like Trufant but Rhodes is a pretty interesting guy.

    The biggest question to me though is would the Titans actually take one of these guys at 10? It seems like we're addressing all of our needs in FA except this position so, again, that leads me to believe we go CB early. I really think it's going to come down to Ansah or Trufant/Rhodes. Warmack/Cooper is still a good pick and a safe one but plenty of talent in this draft at the OG position. We could go out and get a difference maker on defense with the 10th pick, rather go that direction.

    Yea because when are we picking 10th again? Hopefully never.

    At 10 you can get a guy who's a difference maker. A Guard is needed, but they're not that big of a difference maker. We can wait til 39 to get a G

    I like Trufant myself. But I would like to trade down to get him if possible.
