    I highly doubt all of our needs are filled by the 2nd or 3rd round. Runningback is very low on our list of needs right now and I doubt that we get all those needs addressed that early.

    I did see this guy today and yes he was impressive.

    Yeah your right, but sitting at the 4th if Runningback gives us best value with who is left on the board at that pick its a possibility.

    I argued in between drafting Chris Henry and Chris Johnson in back to back years that the Titans can never have too many running backs, and I stand by that. I don't really feel that either Ringer or Harper can be that safe if the team is still looking for someone to spell or take up slack for Chris Johnson. And I feel that they are.

    But it's not a priority. Fourth, fifth round, maybe, if that. The Titans will get at least two defensive players and an offensive lineman first, I believe. Fixing the line is the best way to fixing the running game. By that rationale, I can see them taking a guard and a center to boot before taking a RB. Not to mention a LB, S, possibly a CB.

    Low low priority.

    It is a low priority, but no of us know how we are actually going to draft. We must look at all the possibilities which people find hard to understand. Like how we took three defensive tackles last draft, I still feel we need one more. Casey is a full-time starter and Klug is only situational pass rusher with Zach Clayton looking like a practice squad. Most people wouldn't disagree that they would like to see a big monster drafted to clog the middle, even though we drafted three last draft. I understand what needs we do have defensive end, offensive line, safety. These are the most pressing needs, but until free agents and we see how the draft falls whose know what we will be picking. I'll much rather take BPA than reach on a position of need or take a project guy or someone who is plan out not good just cause we need a position. I trust our front office after last year draft to get the right picks.

    Too soon to know what Harper really is, and Ringer is serviceable, so no to using an early pick on Robert Turbin. RB's can be picked up after the draft if we're uncertain what we have after C.J..

    I've never been impressed at all with Ringer. Harper doesn't look powerful at all unless it's against 3rd stringers/practice squad players in the preseason. We need a bruiser back.

    I'm all for adding a bruiser, but not with one of our top 4 picks.

    It really is too soon to say who we should get, we've got 2 months til the draft, and plenty of time to add players via free agency.
