    Not surprising there are a lot of moaners here. Oh they moaned when we picked CJ2K, there were moaners when we picked Britt, Locker. But give the kid a chance. I TRUST this FO, they have barely set a foot wrong and obviously think this guy was the best player available to make our team better.

    I will say the pick is good based on value and what i've seen from him as a player. I will not moan or say we should've picked blah blah blah. We need to give the guy a chance.

    Stop moaning, and think about how beastly our WR corps now is.

    I think this pick shocked us all.

    My advice is to trust our scouts on this one. Theyve been pretty good to us in recent years

    Looks like Locker gets another weapon, could be worse.

    Well, to be fair, I think Michael Irvin is the only person in America NOT shocked by the pick.

    According to Mort:

    Titans were between Wright and Stephen Hill... and we chose Wright. Be happy for that.

    I really wanted this kid to be a Titan, and I told him so when I sat by him on plain out of waco as he was headed to the combine. I live in Waco and watch a lot of Baylor football. This kid is a player, and RGIII owes a ton of his success to this kid. What this kid does is make the spectacular play, time after time he did this for Baylor. And he is a good kid, no trouble, level headed, no prima dona--I am telling you guys you are all going to love this pick at some point. It is an offensive league people and it is about time we realize this. To be honest, I want a stud linemen in round 2 . . . use the rest of the picks on D . . and fill in gaps with free agency . . .

    I don't know about you all, but I want to watch a Titan team that can score points . . .

    This shows how much the FO believes in Derrick Morgan. Time for him to show up this year.

    Ok, after screaming obscenities loud enough to earn a scowl from the wife and sending the cat hiding under the couch, I've gone and watched some highlights.

    The kid is obviously a flyer, seemed to catch the ball pretty well, and is pretty shifty. Him and Britt, with Wash and cook on the inside is a pretty sick four man pattern.

    I'm not sure it was the way to go... but let's find out. If we can find a center later to spring CJ, the offense should be really good.

    And I do agree with someone earlier... it is nice to root for a team that seems to realize that Offense is king in today's nfl.

    I don't covet interior O-Lineman in the first round, there is value there later on in the draft. So i'm not unhappy at all that we skipped over DeCastro. If there's one thing I trust Munchak on it's on scouting O-Lineman.
