    Here is a nice list of guys not drafted. Some decent prospects.

    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/review/topundrafted.html

    I was thinking one of these guys might get drafted by the Titans.
    Spencer Havner, OLB, U.C.L.A.
    Kai Parham, ILB, Virginia

    I was surprised we went with the RB from Utah and didn't give Gerald Riggs a shot.

    Havner and Parham were on Scott Wright's list of top twenty players of day 2. Could be interesting UDFAs

    Ya know what I don't understand about NFLDraftcountdown? It seems a great resource and everything about it but this really pisses me off..

    Kai Parham, 5.03. 6'3", 256lbs
    "Lacks top instincts, especially for a middle linebacker.."
    "Has excellent size and a solid frame...An excellent natural athlete with good speed..."

    Tim McGarigle, 4.72. 6'1", 242lbs
    "Has excellent instincts..."
    "Does not have the height and size you look for...Speed and quickness are only average...Not much upside"

    So we've got a nice sized slow MLB with not very good instincts vs a good sized guy with good/okay pace with brilliant instincts. One has "not much upside" yet he would appear to have the better tool to work with. Faster and got the better natural instincts. I just don't get how a guy with 5.03 speed can have "good speed" and is a "natural athlete" yet a guy with a 4.7 speed "are only average".

    I may be looking at this a bit angrily but I believe this a race issue. Tim McGarigle is white where as Parham is black. It seems, to me anyway, that black players get all the opportunities within this league. They maybe lacking in the actual tools they need such as instincts but as long as they are natural athletes, oh wait scrub that - not all of them are as the case above shows. Ok athletisism is more than speed but the game of football is more than just ****ing speed, too.

    Both these guys went undrafted- if we're looking for speed I'm taking Tim. If we're going for playmakers, I'm taking Tim.

    It's basically Brian Urlacher vs LaVar Arrington in terms of instincts vs speed. I think its a concensus pick.
