    This question is forever remaining in my head because I really have know idea what the Titans coaching staff believes we need the most, considering the draft position we are in. I believe our needs rank in this order.
    #1 OG.
    #2. S.
    #3. CB.
    #4. DT.
    #5. RB
    #6 LB
    I left out qb because I know the Titans have invested in Jack Locker being our franchise qb so I dont see the Titans considering that position a need.
    The first three rounds or going to be crucial for us, as we have to look for players that wil make an impact right away. No more "project" players that we hope after a few years will make a contribution to a winning season. We need results NOW.
    However its tough to decide what the Titans plan on doing. We all know what we want with our 10th pick. Atleast I do, and his name is Chance Warmack. I just dont know if the Titans value taking an OL that high. They may look at Dee Milliner worthy of a pick that high. Heck I wouldnt be suprised if The Titans coaching staff believe they can coach an OG they would rather take in the later rounds say 3rd/4th.
    I dont like the idea of our coaching staffs confidence in themselves coaching up players that dont have the special skill sets that these higher draft prospects do.
    I have also heard it mentioned that titans could take a safety with their first pick. I dont think there is a single safety in this years draft that is worthy of a top 10 pick. Yes we need the position to improve badly but how much of a difference is a rookie safety we reached for going to do for us?
    I truly see the Titans taking either Warmack or Milliner with the first pick. The second round i wouldnt mind them going after a safety such as Matt Elam or Eric Reid. The thrid round I would like to see the Titans go on the defensive side of the ball again. maybe plug in a guy on the defensive line, only if the player is worthy of the draft position.

    I have really voiced my opinion on how much we need to improve our offensive line. I hope that we end up with two offensive linemen after this years draft, a brusing rb to compliment cj, a difference maker in our pass defense whether it be a CB or S, and hopefully we can add depth on the defesnive line. Easier said than done though.. I guess its just for Tenn to decide, do you want a potentially great group on the field or do you want a small upgrade from last year?

    A+ Criteria:
    -do whatever ESPN wants us to do...
    -trade back in the 1st, draft 2 big names who don't back it up and won't amount to anything..
    -draft a couple guys in the later rounds who were considered sure 1st rounders a year ago but underwent a catastrophic injury or terrible down season (Marcus Lattimore for example)
    -Draft someone Mel Kiper is in love with

    We need to see how FA plays out. We get a good young SS in FA then it is not as big a need for the draft.

    And regardless of who we pick I hope that player is an OG

    We need to get trough FA first but I would think an A+ draft would be:
    Chance Warmack
    Jesse Williams
    Brandon Jenkins
    Jonathan Cyprien

    That is the Matt Millen blueprint. Works well if you are shooting for the first overall pick the following year.

    I think the blueprint is simple. Let the patriots draft for us.

    Don't forget about the pick we usually do every year. You know the one where we're scratching our heads and saying we don't have a need in that position or not of an high importance yet. o_O

    How about that mid round guy we pick who was not even slated to be drafted. Seem to have one of those every year.
