    Does CBS, NBC, or FOX report on Brandon Graham? Am I missing something?

    Hunter was one of my favorite WRs in the draft and I expected him to go in the 1st round, but let the record show that I wanted Tank Carradine with our 2nd round pick. When we traded up, I thought for sure we were gonna take Tank when we traded up.

    I was fine with the Hunter pick though because we will obviously be needing another starting WR in a year or two. Nate and Britt both have two more seasons with us at the most.

    Maybe I missed something, but did he even look bad tonight? I'm certainly not concerned about a rookie not exploding in preseason.

    Just a mental mistake that is getting pretty common.

    He wasn't bad, nor was he good.

    I just don't think he has what it takes to make it in the NFL. I played WR and study the WR position more than anything, and I just don't see it in Hunter. Trust me, I want to see it in him and get in his corner, but from what I read about him and what I see from him, it's hard to co sign with him.

    Seriously, I really hope I am wrong, but Hunter has a long way to go.

    Please provide facts to me that he won't be someone special for us. There is no way to provide facts either way right now. I think he does have the potential to be great, but sometimes that potential is never reached. We won't know for a couple years yet.

    I completely agree with you regarding Hunter....another reach of a draft pick that we traded up to get, that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense considering the other tremendous areas of needs on this team....Jared Cook should've been paid regardless and kept put, and Damian Williams is a receiver that we have for several years now that can easily step into the starting lineup and do a fine job "if" Britt leaves next year.

    did the Titans sign a different talented WR named Damian Williams?

    Cook was made a fair offer - He wanted unfair $s

    You all make great points. Truth is, I scratched my head with this one when they traded up to get him at first as well. However, I thought about it and I liked the aggressivness and also they had NO CLUE what to expect over the next few years at the WR position with Britt being an issue, Nate possibly being gone, and Wright only being in his 2nd year. Sure, they had a lot on the roster, but no true depth and potentials. I like this pick, and I agree it is only 1 preseason game. Lets see how this kid can do with Britt, Wright, and Nate on the field first. Here's hoping!
