    Just too many question marks for this group.

    Claibourne-Will probably be off the board anyway but his workouts were not staggering and he is dumber than a rock.

    Jenkins-The best athlete in the bunch he was an all sec DB for Florida in 2010 but got kicked off the team after some arrests. Also dumber than a rock with a 4 on the wonderlic. Just too many red flags for rd 1 but in rd 2 grab him.

    Kirkpatrick-Struggled some in 2010 as a new starter but played at an all conference level last year. Workout was good not great and simply not enough of a workout to judge him as a first rd player. 2nd rd for sure.

    Gilmore-Great workout but never all that impressive as a player to me. Could qualify for the Woolfolk award for us...


    In the meantime we would end up passing on a player like Kuechly, Hightower or Barron for one of these guys? No way.

    Agree. I really like the depth of the CB class. Plenty of guys who could compete with Hawkins for the NB role. I still think that we add a vet to back up outside at some point.

    Never was high on us taking a CB in round 1.

    I was hoping for Marcus Trufant. He's 31, was hurt last year, but he doesnt have alot of injury history. I'd sign him for a two year deal. Solid vet for our secondary, maybe pair him with a 3rd-5th CB.

    McCourty
    Verner
    Trufant
    Campbell
    Hawkins
    Rookie

    Battle it out for the 5 CB spots.

    I'm a big fan of blitzing, so if we do add a CB, FA or draft pick, he better be able to blitz or at least disrupt the QB how Cortland could. McCourty can blitz, but I'd prefer keeping him in coverage.

    If we sign Koppen all bets are off, I really believe that. We will have addressed our biggest needs; guard, center and defensive end. Don't be surprised if we go BPA and that could very well be a corner and I'd be fine with that personally.

    I'm telling you guys, you will be surprised on draft day, our Titans almost always throw we the fans huge curve balls.

    We could see Gilmore/Kirkpatrick/Fleener perhaps even a WR depending on who is still on the board.

    I really think you can't have too many good corners and with the loss of Finny we sure as hell could used Gilmore or Kirkpatrick, both of whom will be NFL starters.

    When is the last time the Titans really surprised us? All of their pics have been pretty predictable leading up to the draft

    Locker - We all knew that was the pick about a week before the draft
    Morgan - Same if JPP wasnt there
    Britt - Same if Nicks wasnt there
    CJ2K - Some people here called that as well, I wanna say Gut called it
    Griff - We knew we were going for a saftey and it was between Griff and Nelson
    VY - We knew that after Bud opened his mouth
    Pacman - We knew it would be him or Antrelle Rolle

    Cant remember the last time I saw the Titans draft a pick in the first round and said "Man I didnt see that coming"

    Right now I have no clue, Im thinking DL in the first two rounds. We should have a clear idea in 2 weeks
