Oh snap. Wikipedia has it wrong then, lol figures.
I have the Titans going hard after Nick Hardwick. OG 2nd round. So that should fix the OL issues. I have nothing against CJ, but paying him all that money is hard. Hopefully, with a better OL a better CJ will come with it... Sure CJ will hit the 50+ yarders, but how many 2 thru -2 yarders will come along with it?
No doubt he's gonna have plenty of runs for negative yardage but I still see his production come up with upgrades on the line. Amano is just not a good C and Scott flat out sucks. Harris has been inconsistent too. I feel this and DL have to be our main areas that need to be upgraded. I honestly don't care who they bring in there as long as they help us improve. I'm not sure how I feel about relying on a rookie OL to start but if a there is a stud on the board when we pick I'm all for taking them.
The thing about Richardson is he NEVER fumbles. I think he's fumbled once in his college career and they recovered it.
I think the Seahawks are waiting for Barkley to come out and will draft him so Carroll can have his guy again. They might roll with T. Jackson next year and hope they can move up to get him. It's too bad too, I think if they have a stud QB they could be really good.
I feel the same way about the Dolphins
Also, Bengals DO have the Raiders pick. So #17 would be Trent Richardson. So I updated it

** I'm still not entirely sure going guard in the first round is the right way to go.
I understand our OL did a pretty bad job last year but it's 3 simple moves away till we have a good line again.
1. Move Amano back to OG, people forget he was actually good there.
2. Sign a Center, draft one like in the 3rd.
3. Most importantly, let the line gel. With the shortened off season they weren't allowed to develop chemistry which is very important.
All of them make sense to me.
Little shocked by Richardson to Vikes. I understand that AP is hurt and all, but Vikes have SO many other needs. Really any OL spots, their entire secondary, WR, DT... Like to here ur reasoning on that.
Just something that popped into my head when I saw Peterson's knee bend the wrong way. I seriously doubt that will be their pick in my "final" mock a few days before the draft.
