    When I watched Watkins destroy OSU, all I could think about is how hard it would be for defenses to cover both him and Wright. I certainly don't think WR is a need for us, but you don't draft for need in the 1st round. You draft BPA. If Watkins is the BPA then take him. IMO the main job of the GM in dealing with free agency is to get the team in a position to draft BPA.

    Why is Nate getting cut/traded EVERY offseason? The guy had over 900 yards this season. Is he dynamic? No. Is he a little more expensive than he should be? Yeah. Is he the leader of the WR room and a good influence on the younger guys? I think so.

    And it's kind of funny that one game has caught everyone's attention regarding Watkins. The guy has been fast and making plays for three years.

    I wouldn't throw a fit if we drafted Watkins, I just want someone who is going to be a good player for us and make plays.

    I wouldn't be mad at Watkins either... However it would be terribly dense of us to draft another early round WR. Even in this golden era of WRs, it would create a 3-4 year core that would probably all need huge contracts after that time. That's a huge issue.

    Contract/cap wise... Terrible. Talent wise. Hilarious. If we had a qb in the likes of manning or such... But locker. Meh.

    Front 7 guy. That's what I want.

    We could get Dominique Easley in the 2nd or a pass rusher like Jackson Jeffcoat (though he is undersized for an NFL DE) or even Stephon Tuitt. AJ Johnson, Zach Mettenburger, and Tajh Boyd are a few others we should be looking at between rds 2-3. If we cut CJ at what rd do we look for a RB? I think we should keep him imo.

    WR should be dead last on the list of needs for the Titans. T, LB, DE, and QB are the more important needs at the moment.
