Our #1 priority should be bolstering the O-line.

    I'm OK with that as long as we are willing to trade up into the late 1st round to snatch Warmack/Jones if we need to. I don't want to risk losing out AGAIN on a first round interior OL talent.

    I would be happy if Star fell to us ... But I wont be happy if we take anyone other than Star/Warmack at #10 (unless they are both gone, then I can't be mad at the FO)

    If the Titans don't get a guard in the first two rounds, I will not be at all surprised. They will probably find a few late guys they think are gems and pass up on the sure thing starters and we'll feel like idiots again.

    Yeah- that's what has me worried the most. Matthews and Munchak have shown that they grossly overestimate their ability to "coach somebody up".

    I am really hoping that this year was a lesson to them ... but most likely they will blame it all on injuries and go with the same OL next year

    I have thought about this situation quite a bit, and I doubt something shocking happens.

    We won't take a QB, RB, or a WR, and I doubt we take a linebacker since Brown came on. Although Jones would not make me mad.

    Corner isn't a huge need but you can make a case for it, S is a need and would not be upset with us taking one but probably not at 10.

    Really when you think about it, it would be very very unlikely for us to draft anyone that is not OL or DL unless we hit up the free agent market quick or somehow all our prospects get taken early.

    I just do not see it happening. I think it is more likely we go OL in 1 and 2 than not at all.

    did anybody else see the article talking bout how they acknowledge the o line was horrible and the main priority is building the o line through high draft picks and or free agency
