    I've been shocked we didn't take a DE our last 3 picks.

    I don't get this pick. But I guess maybe Ayers is going to play a lot of DE this year??? That's the only thing I can think of to make sense of our draft strategy today.

    It's becoming extremely obvious that the plan is to blitz linebackers like crazy this year. It all adds up. We saw Brown blossom as a pass rusher and we know Ayers can do it. Now Gregg Williams is in the fold.

    Matt Miller said Gooden has the highest potential of any LB in this class: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...oard-2013-matt-millers-final-rankings/page/13

    I still find it crazy how thin the Titans are at DE, but I don't think this pick is absurd.

    Is it possible they plan on putting him at safety?

    Yeah, Gooden is going to be depth and a nickle linebacker with Ayers rushing the passer.

    We need linebacker depth, that's for damn sure.

    We absolutely need a nickel LB. The more I think about it, the more I'm okay with it.

    I'm sorry but who do we have to back up Ayers/Brown for injury or rest?

    Long term, I just don't see how he fits.

    Head scratcher for me too. He's a Brown clone. He used to be a SS so that might be what the Titans are thinking.
