    We gave up too much to only move up 6 spots. The pick whatever but I don't like the trade at all.

    These guys are thinking 100% lets win now and don't seem to care about the future.

    A third... That they are hoping will be in the 20s lol... We traded a second to get cook. This is nothing in comparison.

    This is a new front office and I have been pleased enough with Webster to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    I dont like giving up a 3rd next year but I never like giving up picks lol. I think it will work out.

    Yeah, I loved Rhodes too. I wanted either Rhodes or Cooper with our first rounder.

    The 2014 3rd makes this rich, and I know the thinking is we should have gone defense, but Justin Hunter is a skilled guy you wouldn't find in the 3rd round, whereas secondary is still deep.

    He has a rare combination of size and speed (6"4 who ran a 4.4). And as an in-state guy, I'd like to think we know more about him than anyone else.

    Webster has been a terrific talent evaluator thus far, I'm going to trust him on this and see how it plays out.

    DB is still deep, we might be able to get a guy like Wreh-Wilson or Alford at 70 (or Taylor, but I'm dreaming there). As for DE, there's still: Hunt, Moore, Okafor & Lemonier.

    As for current DE depth, it's a little better than last year with the monster we signed from KC.

    Omg relax! Name me more than 3 3rd/7th rounders that have been impact players for this team. Um Jurrel Casey and finnegan? Ok what happens when Hunter becomes a stud. It's not like we gave up a 1st or even a 2nd...good grief!

    we have all seen Hunter play, the kid is going to love staying in TN and will give it his best. I think he is going to be a superstar here. Titans fans are going to love him by mid season.

    People seem to forget about that 6'8 man from KC, heck you just reminded me of him.

    we have a receiver who cant stay healthy or out of trouble that is in his contract year and and the other who is getting older and getting paid to much....we needed to look towards the future and we did just that and sens was a rookie last year and played decent for being a rookie drafting in the mid to late rounds....put that together with the off season we had for good or bad we signed players that filled holes on our team and your post is ridiculous:crazy:

    carry on

    There is still depth at cb and de, there are NOT any more 6"4 4.4 WRs and frankly he was the only in this draft! He would have been picked by Detroit anyways so stop saying we didn't need to trade up, if u like a guy that much u snag him
