    Heck I'd trade down to 20s and take Tank, but I doubt there's any team wanting to trade up that high.

    That is always the trouble with trading down. Often there are more teams looking to trade down than there are teams looking to trade up.

    I'm back and forth on Mingo. I just wish his production was a little higher, but I attribute some to double teams and the fact they lined him up close to the tackle to set the edge rather than give him some space to rush the passer which is what his skill set dictates. I wish they would allow any eligible players get invites to the Senior Bowl would let some juniors showcase their skills. Seeing Mingo one on one with some top tackles would tell a lot. Kearse was utilized somewhat similarly in college only put up 7.5 sacks his last year in gainsville and blossomed in the NFL. Was Greg the DC when he was here? I still have my fingers crossed Ansah falls if we go DE.

    I'm really hoping Tank falls to us in the 2nd. Just looking at teams that could use a DE… (1st) NYG, CIN, DEN, NE, ATL & (2nd) JAX, DET, CINCY… Plenty of landing spots, but it's very possible a Top-10 talent falls due to a torn ACL. Would be a STEAL.

    I don't agree that WR is a huge need, but if Justin Hunter is available in the second I hope we grab him. I think he may end up being the best wr in this draft. Outside of Offensive and defensive line I don't see anyone worth a top 10 pick in this draft.

    Wonder if Ruston would take a shot at WR Austin if he was still on the board at 10?

    Crazier things have happened plus Austin has said he would like to go to a team that has plenty of receivers so he wouldn't get double teamed being the number one guy so if we had depth it would look like this Britt,Austin,Wright,Washington and Walter thats not bad at all.

    Looking at the list above that would most likely be the most talent this team ever had at one time at the WR spot.

    I think as it stands now, it may be the most talented group of receivers we've ever had. At least since the team came to Tennessee anyhow.
