    The top 5 players in the 2017 are all on the defensive side of the ball.

    1. Myles Garrett - DE - Texas A&M
    2. Jonathan Allen - DE - Alabama
    3. Jamal Adams - S - LSU
    4. Reuben Foster - ILB - Alabama
    5. Malik Hooker - S - Ohio State

    Now it's likely Garrett and Allen are both gone by #5. That's fine, I'm not sure Allen changes the Titans much anyways.

    But Adams, Foster and Hooker.. oh man, the Titans could use a guy like that..

    Adams and Hooker especially have me drooling. Talk about elite, blue chip players. S may not be our biggest need, but if you had the chance to draft a hall of fame player at #5 instead of going for your #1 need, would you do it?

    There is no CB worth #5. Not even close.

    Mike Williams is definitely worth #5. But he won't be the top player on the board. Adams or Hooker will be. Yes our offense would greatly benefit from a true #1 WR. We saw a good Titans offense in 2016 without one, and surely a WR like Williams would elevate that.

    I say grab the best player at 5, which will be Adams or Hooker, and grab your WR or CB at #18, where plenty options with still be available

    Foster or a WR at 5, too many CB's to be reaching for one at 5.

    Either we top off the front-7 early or wrap up the whole offense with a WR early...

    I just dont like the idea of going Safety that soon, but maybe thats just me..

    I see us going WR or S....Likely WR..Wright is leaving, Matthews came on late...Sharpe is a 3-4. Mariota is coming into his 3rd year and has NEVER had HIS guy.....They will change that and fast this year.

    IF we get a WR in the first it will be with the #18.

    I have no problem going 18....We will get a WR and early though....Marcus has earned it and Jrob will give it to him. The FA market sucks for WR's too.

    Just don't see it. Pretty deep draft at WR. Williams is not THAT much better than the next guy, if at all.

    We ALLLLL know as the draft gets closer...people fall in love with big positions..I do think QB's and Pass rushers naturally will get bumped up first which only helps our stock. We can easily end up with an elite defensive player and wideout that is high quality at 18 if we stay put. I think we will get trade offers out the A$$ especially if QB's start going and the potential of Allen/Garrett landing to us at #5 (outside chance)
