    lol Brown version 2.0 :boo:

    But maybe a speedier, more aggressive Titans defense lead by Greg Williams is in the works.

    Could be used in the nickel with Brown letting Ayers spend more time as a DE. Also gives us depth if Brown goes down.

    While I like this final assessment by this guy in't it quite stupid all the same:
    Is this guy on drugs.... better first year than Brown? ah....I hope but doubt it. But I wouldn't doubt Webster's eval on LBs either since he seems to have success.

    After watching some tape, I don't doubt his abilities.

    I do still question our need for him.


    Unless he can play MLB, this was a waste.

    This probably means Ayers will have his hand on the ground a lot this year.

    This could be stupid,

    ...or incredibly genius!

    Agree with everyone that it seems weird because it looks like a luxury pick when there was a clear need to be addressed.

    But I really like the player. The Titans are building one hell of a fast and young linebacking corps.

    Those are my exact thoughts on our 2nd and 3rd round picks so far.

    ILB: McCarthy
