    Was this a Titans fan that wrote this?!?! lol..nobody on our D-line should be ranked that high based off how they played last season...

    However, we should have a much improved d-line with Casey and Martin playing beside the big boys we signed....Our d-line was horrid last season because instead of having some big beasts beside one of these guys we had Senderrick Marks/Karl Klug...I see Casey and Martin improving even further...getting more sacks and more TFL. I'm very, very excited.

    Ranking for Martin is too low. On a per snap basis, he was one of the best DT's in the league. Casey is about right.

    Mike Martin is an absolute beast, that's why to me the Star pick at #10 doesn't make sense. We have three stud DT's

    After reading that you wouldn't think that we struggled against the run so much last year

    But really I don't think our D was that bad last year ... they were just on the field way too much.

    I mean, our D was bad last year, but looked even worse than they should've

    I'd say those rankings are fair. Hopefully the signing of Hill will help even more, keeping a fresh rotation in will reduce snaps, but increase productivity. Plus having a massive body next to Casey/Martin should do wonders.

    Not all bleacher report is pigeons, this NFL1000 is being done by Matt Miller. He knows his stuff, but also makes some crazy predictions. He's @nfldraftscout on twitter (if you have it), he's a good follow.
