    The Patriots have their 1st round pick.

    This may clear things up for you

    So since the Saints don't have a 1st to lose, Goodell took their second round pick in both the 2012 and 2013 drafts.

    I see us drafting Mercilus as well.

    Walter's new mock for us looked pretty good. Here are his top 3:

    1st. Whitney Mercilus
    2nd. Lavonte David
    3rd. Ben Jones

    All three picks address big needs.

    OLB isn't a big need. Ayers gets the job done, and is young. Witherspoon started solid... was average towards the end of the year. But provides leadership for our young defense. Not to mention with all the nickle sets we do, how often do we have all 3 LBs on the field?

    Witherspoon has a year left in the tank if that. Perfect year to draft an OLB imo.

    I think we make a mistake to wait until we don't have an OLB to draft an OLB.

    I'm hoping we got OLB 1st round next year. Fix our DL/OL in this draft. Then OLB and SAFETY early next year.

    Gerald Hodges is a name i'll be watching next year for OLB

    I think that Nico Johnson will shine now that he is less overshadowed by Upshaw and Hightower. I have us going 1) Johnson 2)Rambo next season

    Am I watching a different Titans team? Cause Witherspoon plays hard, and hasn't missed a beat.

    Thank you! IDK why people keep saying we need a LB. Ayers and McCarthy have an amazing amount of potential (Ayers more so the McCarthy) and Witherspoon may have been out second best player on defense last season.

    Are you kidding me McCarthy was the best LB we had last year, probably since Bulluck was in his prime.
