    SUMMARY: With the 85th pick of the 2008 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans have selected TE Craig Stevens from California. Stevens is 6', 3", 254 pounds with a 4.59 40. He has adequate size and bulk to go with decent timed speed. Stevens is strong, tough and physical as a blocker. Last season, he had 204 receiving yards and three TDs for Cal.

    NFL.com: Has a solidly built frame with ideal hand size for his position...Added more bulk and muscle mass to his frame prior to his senior year, but is probably at maximum growth potential without any more bulk impacting his good timed speed (also must play up to that speed, as he needs to refine his start off the snap)...Has a big chest, wide back and thick thighs and calves...Quick to get into position as a blocker, but is mechanical in his initial burst off the ball when trying to get into his patterns...Has the hand punch to defeat a strong press, but also knows how to weave and use head fakes to escape...Has a good swim move to get a clean release...Shows good patience working his way into the zone, but is better served as a receiver on underneath and tight end-delay patterns...Cuts better in the short area (will drift on long routes) and is a good target in the crowd...

    a little dumbfounded at this one with scaife, crumpler, and even petrowski.....but it does send the message that we intend to run the ball at all costs.

    We did that last year! How did it work out? It made our defense win all of our games.

    and as far as this draft goes, I am highly suspicious the people we want keep getting taken right in front of us (Felix Jones, Sweed, Brad Cottam)
