    I just listened to our number one draft pick on the Wake up zone. And I couldn't be any happier. WOW. What a fantastic attitude this guy has. He is all class, you can't fake it. I didn't know much about him, except that he was a good football player. He talked about coming to work and earning the respect of the D right away. He mentioned Pacman twice by name, and his was speaking of him well. He blew me away. He also said he was going to play corner, at first anyway. He also said that he was going to wear 27. That Coach Fisher talked to Eddie about it, and that Michael has EG's blessing.

    I can't wait. I am going to go buy a new 27 Jersey! I'm not kidding, this guy blew me away. I'm beside myself with Joy. I can't wait to see this kid terrorizing AFC Offenses this season. Again, WOW.

    Great to hear.

    It appears the Titans are going to take the approach that, in a zone, they want their best four players back there which is why the trend appears to be more towards taking S/CB types.

    When they drafted Fuller, I remember they felt he could play both. Same with Finnegan, I believe.

    They may feel the combination of Harper, Griffin, Hope and LT is better than Harper, Griffin, Hope and Hill. Time will tell.

    It should be an interesting area to watch as Fuller, Lowry and Waddell should all push as well.

    I heard him on the way to work also. He impressed me a lot and I'm getting more excited about this guy. He could really turn out to be a great player. I can't wait to see what he does in August.

    Personally, I'd prefer Harper, Griffin, Hope, and Finnegan, but that's just me

    That could happen. But I think they like Finnegan at nickel due to his speed. The rookie or Fuller might do well this camp and give Finnegan more work on the outside.

    I do hope Fisher works Finnegan at both spots.
