    So as many fans know, we have these 2 guys named Markelle Martin & Scott Solomon who were huge steals in the draft (so we hear).

    But when will we see them contribute? Markelle Martin could really be our savior once we dump Michael Griffin, and Scott Solomon cold be that 3rd DE we so desperately need, or can he?

    I just want to know what the team thinks of these guys because if they're in the plans for 2013 thats going to change how we draft.

    We've had a lot of second year pros come on big their second season for us lately, can we expect anything out of these two or should I keep thinking DE and Safety are high proprieties this draft?

    Martin I think has legitimate upside but I don't think Soloman was a steal at all.

    DE is our 2nd biggest need but we can take a developmental safety due to the fact that Wilson is our starter this year.

    Soloman has bad knees and a injury history, he is that high motor guy that reinf*ck wanted to draft. Like keith bullock said the other day on 104.5 to win in the nfl " they all cannot be good guys! You have to have some attitude and that went out the window with mike."

    Clear Bullock is not a big fan of his. Again Webster has done more in 4 days than he did in a
    few years!

    All I know is Markelle Martin is the most useless person to ever follow on Twitter.

    I have phases where I'll use Twitter for a few weeks at a time and then not for like 6 months, but I follow pretty much all Titans/NFL news breakers. I try to follow our new players, so I decided to follow Martin.

    Such a waste. Not one quality tweet ever. Hopefully he's not as bad on the football field.

    Markelle will be the backup FS.
    Solomon will be the rotation 5th DE.

    I was a big fan of Markelle out of OSU. I think he has potential and should see some snaps this year. He was getting a 2nd-3rd round grade before injuries held him back.

    Martin was out for the year. We wont know until this year what, if anything, he can or will do.

    Solomon was also injured for 1/2 the season (or 6-7 games or so) and was a 7th round pick.

    Basically no one knows what we have.

    Martin was out for like the year, that's not his fault unless you want to blame him for the injury. Solomon...ehh. 7th round guy in his first year, can't really expect much right off the bat.

    Martin is a depth player. He was never going to be a starter.

    I don't think Solomon was a steal at all, but a lot of people thought Martin was. Hopefully he can stay healthy.
