    Which prospects this year jump out as players that would be a match made in heaven with the Titans. Whether it is their fit in our offensive or defensive schemes, or their attitude, who do you feel would be the perfect fit for our team (it doesn't have to be a position of need).

    Personally I think gritty, hard nose players are what this team should be comprised of. I'm not sure what direction Palmer or Gray want to take so I'm not sure what players they look for.

    I really think Nick Perry, Brandon Thompson and Dentari Poe fit our scheme.

    I think Mark Ingram (though he won't be there at 20) and Vinny Curry both would fit great. They have a high motor and fill a need.

    At DT I think Brockers and Poe would fit the big bodied linemen they're looking to take to beef up the line.

    Perry is a raw power, he has a nice explosion off of the snap and shows great awareness. I think he has good hands as well.

    Poe is another guy quick off the snap and is very disruptive. He's a big DT and can be the guy who eats the double teams, allowing Klug and Casey to wreak havoc.

    Brandon Thompson- Just look at any post Deuce has ever posted about him. I can't say anything that hasn't already been said.

    Yeah, he'll definitely be off the board. The Saints took him last year. :)

    I know you mean Melvin.

    Poe does not fit the 4-3 scheme sorry, neither does Brockers.

    Both are not explosive off the ball and in Brockers case he's not even very strong.

    Poe is friggin' perfect as a 3-4 NT; huge, strong and hard to move and he doesn't need to be a strong pass rusher but he sure as hell will be able to take up multiple blockers.

    Believe it or not, I see Brockers as a 3-4 end, but that's my opinion.

    Ideal fits for our scheme:

    Whitney Mercilus
    Nick Perry
    Mike Martin
    Derick Wolfe
    Brandon Thompson
    Trenton Robinson
    David Molk

    I like Wolfe as well but i dont know if he fits our scheme. He is more of a penetrating DT and we are looking for bigger DTs, and I dont think he has the explosive speed to play DE in our scheme

    We're looking for bigger DT's really, since when?

    If you wanna have a big fat body, cough, cough Smith for a 3-4 look from time to time fine, but in a 4-3 being 300 pounds and can get pressure is perfect. Derick Wolfe is exactly that so is Martin.

    Jerry Gray has publicly stated that he wants to get bigger up front and put emphasis on stopping the run. That was the point of moving Jason Jones from DT and moving him to DE.

    Wolfe is barely 300 and doesnt fit our scheme. He is similar to JJ Watt, He is more of a 3-4 DE
