    Paul Kuharsky, in his not so humble opinion, is predicting the Titans take one of four players with the 11th pick:

    Paul Kuharsky@PaulKuharskyNFL 19h
    I think the #Titans will take one of four players: Barr, Evans, Ebron or Gilbert.

    As far as I can tell Evans and Ebron have not been in for a visit. But the Titans could go that direction anyway. A case for each:

    Barr: Is probably the most common pick I have seen for the Titans in mocks. They have spent a lot of time with him and he would fit the new defense well.

    Evans: Not a major immediate need. However the Titans are not deep at WR. The Titans have Wright and Hunter for the future and Washington for one more year. That is about it for useful players. Plus a big physical WR who can actually play is a rare and valuable commodity.

    Ebron: A project pick much like Hunter last year. Really raw with a lot of natural ability. Could he be another Jared Cook or could he actually be a good player? The only TE on the roster who is much of anything as a receiver is Walker. And he is not a star exactly. Whis has said multiple times he wants to use TEs a lot in the pass game so Ebron could be a good selection.

    Gilbert: You can never have enough good CBs. And this would make losing Verner easier.

    I like Barr a lot. He has only played LB for 2 years though, as he started out as a RB. He has great lean from what I've seen in some replays of his sacks. Only person I've seen to lean lower without losing their balance is Derrick Thomas.

    Ebron and Evans will be gone by our pick. Tampa and Buffalo almost for sure grabbing them two. Im very curious about what we do. I think we want to drop back if we can find a partner. If not, I see Barr as the pick, Donald/Gilbert if Barr is gone. Outside of those 3 or a trade and I will surprised.

    We will not draft Donald. Does not fit the scheme:

    Paul Kuharsky@PaulKuharskyNFL 52m
    .@gregcosell on @Midday180: Aaron Donald ideally a 4-3, 3-tech player. Very similar to Geno Atkins.

    I'm all for Barr at 11. That's my guy. Just 2 years on D and over 20 sacks. There's bust potential, but his game tape just jumps out and excites you. What a terrific athlete. Evans may be a beast and would replace Nate in 2 years, not a bad value pick. Ebron looks special but he'll likely be gone. Gilbert is my last option of the 4, he could become great, or he could be a typical big body fast CB that doesn't pan out on the field.

    If we wanna go Cb, I kinda rather trade back and grab Kyle Fuller.

    If they are going by need, then Ebron/Evans could be it if they happen to fall, which I highly doubt (Evans anyway). The TItans have no TE depth, and the WR core is weak with no size. Pass rushers are coveted, but Barr may not be there and I don't like that he is raw and a project pic. The Titans need someone to perform day 1. As for Gilbert, I like his athleticism, but he scares me a bit, especially when there are good corners to be found later, and Sens/BWW in the cupboard.

    I also agree with those 4 guys. I have already posted my love of landing Mike Evans. The only way Evans falls is if QBs get drafted early

    Evans and Ebron just don't make sense. What other team you know has this much talent spent on the receiving position?....

    Barr.... I'm against this guy at 11. I smell good talent but with a ceiling that won't be reached. What is his LB coach gonna teach him more of in TN?
