    I wondered why the Jags passed on him given Blackmon's status.

    Hopefully he doesn't follow in the footsteps of Calico and Britt.

    I liked the pick, but this article and other articles I have read is what doesn't have me too excited about it.

    If he can stay healthy and not re-injure that knee, we have us an absolute steal.

    I don't think this is anything new. There will always be concerns with a player after a torn ACL. Hunter definitely wasn't himself last season but still played pretty well and continued to improve as the season went on.

    I probably wouldn't take a WR in the 1st with a torn ACL either.

    If Willis McGahee can do it, anyone can.. Even though WR and RB don't make the same kind of cuts.

    I'm worried about everyone's ACL. I'm only slightly more worried about Hunter.

    Well we are the Titans... not exactly a good spot for him to come, expecting that knee to get better. Please not this **** again. At least he doesn't seem like a guy who will get in trouble off the field.

    I fully blame Baptist for our woes. They suck. We need Vandy.

    Our doctors thought he was good to go. Ruston Webster doesn't strike me as careless when it comes to signing or drafting players. I'm sure he did more than his due diligence with regards to Hunter's injury....and our doctors signed off on it, that's all he can go by. If they hadn't, I don't think he would have forced the pick.

    This is a really a non-story. Injury history factors into draft decisions! Stop the presses!!!!1111oneone
