    Prince over Peterson? Absolutely not. Prince is no where near the playmaker Peterson is and Prince looked like a fool covering the WR from Oklahoma St. I hope we don't take Prince at 8.

    Fairley
    Bowers
    Miller
    Peterson
    Green
    Dareus
    Newton
    Jordan
    J. Jones
    Kerrigan/Quinn(undecided on Quinn a year off hurts and he is undersized)

    I really doubt Bowers will be there at 8. I also prefer him but I'm saying Dareus just because we have a better shot at him. If they're both gone I would love to get Miller. In the 2nd we have to go QB, I'm just on the Kaep wagon.

    #1 - Von Miller
    #2 - Fairley
    #3 - Dareus
    #4 - Bowers
    #5 - Peterson Any of these 5
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    #6 - Newton
    #7 - AJ Green
    #8 - Amukamara
    #9 - Rob Quinn
    #10 - Cameron Jordan

    Von Miller is top of the list due to the disparity in talent between himself and all other Line backers. We NEED a top Linebacker.

    I like the pick with Dareus because he's more versatile than most of the other d lineman.

    I'm worried about Peterson, he reminds me of Antrel Rolle and I think he could be a bust. I hope not, because I really like the kid. How is Peterson a "play-maker"?.. if you're referring to his return ability - it wouldn't matter for the Titans; we have a pro-bowl returner already. Amukamara is a pure coverage shut-down corner guy. Yes, he did get burnt one game, his entire college career. I just think Prince is a sure-pick, i'll be the first admit that Peterson has more potential, but more potential to fail to.

    Regardless, I don't want a CB at #8.

    He is a playmaker regardless if he is returning or playing CB. Now do we need a return man no but honestly he is better than Mariani. Mariani is extremely solid but not spectacular while Peterson is much more of a threat. He also had 4 int in a year teams knew better than to challenge him just like Prince but he had 0 int. There is a reason Peterson was the Thorpe and Bednarik awards winner and was never embarrassed by a WR the way Prince.

    But yes I agree, I hope we don't go CB at #8 UNLESS it is Peterson because for him to fall to us would be a miracle. No more Finny getting torched by Andre Johnson.

    Derek Moye from Penn State had his way with him at the Capital One Bowl the year before.

    Keywords there are bolded.

    I'm a PSU fan and the conditions sucked but yeah Moye got the better of him but it was still only 4 catches for 56 yards and a TD he didn't exactly blow up or have his way with Peterson and that was LAST year.

    Justin Blackmon had 5 catches for 157 yds and 2 td against Prince. Now that I would consider having your way with someone and it took place THIS year.

    I can't comment much on Amakamura, but after watching a lot of LSU games, I think Peterson is overrated.

    Every time I watched, it seemed like he was consistently out of position or making tackles...and the announcers were always saying how he was cramping earlier or has the flu or it was the other guy's fault and how you'll never see that happen again --- and then it would happen again the next series.

    He should probably be a top 10 guy based on size and athleticism, but I don't see him as a Champ Bailey/Charles Woodson/Deion Sanders type.
