    Its really difficult this year, there are a ton of guys I like.
    Last year DeCastro was easily top of my board at this stage.

    I'm going to decide today, back to the film room.

    I hear you, it's been the toughest year to make a decision. It just seems that the top end of the draft is pretty devoid of elite talent, although depth seems pretty good.

    I feel Ansah is overrated. Not saying he's bad by any means, i'm just shocked he's getting Top-5 looks. I remember this guy being projected 3rd-4th round, but he had a decent season and has good size/measurables and flew up the boards. Sure, he's very raw and has JPP potential... but at #10? That's pretty risky to take an extremely raw player that early. He should be more of a 15 range guy, but with this draft you almost have to draft him early due to the lack of elite talent. However, I believe a Top-10 pick should be an immediate impact player; can Ansah be that, or does he need a few years to develop?

    I haven't watched a ton of Mingo since probably the end of the season. I think i'm going to rewatch some games of his, seems like alot of posters are really wanting him... and the Titans brought him in for a visit. About to dive back into that and see if he has what it takes to be a Titan.

    Mingo is a fabulous athlete but a horrid football player. He has almost zero pass rush moves and solely create pressure using his speed rush. He also does not use his hands to disengage blockers.

    That's exactly what I remember, I just find it astounding so many people want him... figured I missed something.

    - Long/thin frame, but room for more muscle mass
    - No pass rush moves
    - Relies on speed/athleticism vs slower tackles
    - Disappears in multiple games
    - Average run support
    - Didn't see alot of double teams
    - Has boom/bust potential

    That's what I had listed for him. Seems point on... but man, this draft is crazy.

    I think this thing is definitely wipe open at this point. I'm sure Ruston and Coach have their board set already and hope that Milliner, Star or Warmack slide to #10. Something tells me that Patterson is our guy at #10.

    The thing about Ansah that makes him a decent fit for us though is the fact that he is a better run stuffer then a pass rush guy at this point in his career. Ansah does not have the best technique but he is amazingly athletic and has an amazing motor. With us having Wimbley here for another 1-2 seasons that means we can afford to play Ansah on 1st and 2nd down while we sub Wimbley in.

    Personally I think Ansah is going to be the next Julius Peppers and I would have no issues with taking him at 10th overall.

    I agree and I'd take him over Mingo & Jordan, that's for sure. He's has the size/speed to be a 4-3 defensive end; just needs the coaching to get him to the next level. Rocker could hopefully provide that for him.
