    SUMMARY: With the Texans beating the Cardinals last Sunday, the Titans dropped to seventh in the NFL draft due to opponent winning percentage. Three other teams are also 4-10 behind the now seventh Titans with two weeks left — Oakland, Buffalo and Detroit. Green Bay, New Orleans and the New York Jets continue to shuffle in the three through five spots.

    You can't say that now. Only a handful of juniors have declared and no one has even had a pro day yet.

    On some draft boards Ahmad Brooks is actually rated above Hawk and Greenway is a similar player to Hawk. Another LB of consideration is DeMeco Ryans from Alabama.
    I would love to see us actually be able to trade down with the depth at LB this year and take the best LB available if LB is the position we want to go with. Huff or Landry at safety would be considerations if we traded down as well.

    LB is stacked in the draft this year. The Titans should be able to grab at least one starter (at LB) in this years draft. The Titans need an intimidator in the middle or on the strong side. Hawk or Brooks could fit that mold. Ryans is a little smaller but he does bring the wood too...

    Hawk, Greenway and Brooks would all be better suited at playing the strong side. Ryans is more in the mold of Bulluck but would be an instant upgrade never the less. With the large number of quality LBs available this year we might find strong value as late as the 4th round. I like Moses Osemwegie from Vanderbilt. He is a little small, 220 pounds but is a good athlete and a smart instinctive player who could be around in the middle of the draft.

    Agreed. There's more OLB guys in the draft and FA, but no stand outs in the middle. Besides D'Qwell and Hodge, there isn't much to write home about in regards to ILB.

    as of christmas day 9 P.M., we're 6th in the draft. arizona and buffalo both won while we lost to miami.

    it looks like the highest we can go is 5th(based on opponent winning percentage), if all the teams with three wins win in week 17 and we lose.
