    If we have similar production from our rookies this upcoming season, we're going to be pretty real good.

    This Curry guy right now can be taken in the 2nd, no need to reach.

    I've liked Curry for a while and have had him as the 4th DE on my board for a little while. Do has an Lin-credable motor that really reminds my of KVB. I'd be down with grabbing in in round 1.

    If we sign a Center then our first 3 rounds could be V. Curry| B. Thompson | M. Martin (S, OK ST). I'd love this offseason and a DL of Curry | Thompson | Casey | Morgan would be the best in the NFL for years.

    Not at pick #20, alot of scouts have him in the Top 5 for 43 DE and Top 5 for 34 OLB. He'll be late 1st/early 2nd if his combine goes well.

    I'd love that off-season. Huge Markelle Martin fan, and would be willing to draft him in the 2nd, if we only sign Babs in FA.

    If we decide to go this route I'd hope we trade back and pick up extra picks. That way we can either double dip a position such as safety, or even snag a wide receiver we wouldnt have had a chance at. Curry is a good player no doubt

    I don't see the Titans doing trading back. Based on Webster and Munchak's comments yesterday, it sounds like they know they need an impact pass rusher. It's too risky to trade back and risk missing out on the guy you like. I think they are much more likely to stay at 20 and even reach a bit to get the guy they want.

    I'm telling you guys, this guy has been undervalued as far as where he's projected to go. After the combine and when people start watching his film more intently, he will end up being a first round pick. By the time the draft gets here, 20 won't be a reach for him.

    I love Curry, had him mocked to us in the 2nd round in one of my mocks however it doesn't look like he'll last until the later part of round 2 anymore.

    I want the best pure pass rusher in the draft, playing the run well at DE is so overrated. If a DE keeps contain then he's done his job, period. This can be taught to pure pass rushers easily.

    In my eyes the best "pure pass rusher" in the draft is Whitney Mercilus. Yeah he's a one year wonder but so was JPP in many respects. With the Titans hiring a pass rush specialist, this could be a perfect pick for us.

    I figure Ingram will be off the board by 20, same with Coples. However I want no piece of Coples because he is just not a great pass rusher.
