    Here is a list who the experts mock to us:


    NFL Draftcountdown (Scott Wright): DE Jason Pierre Paul (22 Jan)
    NFL Draft Ace (Mike Band): DE Carlos Dunlap (22 Jan)
    Scoutsnotebook (Tommy Lawlor): CB Joe Haden ()
    Draft Board Insider (Curt Popejoy): DE Carlos Dunlap (27 Jan)
    Great Blue North Draft Report : DT Brian Price (25 Jan)
    ESPN (Mel Kiper): DE Everson Griffen (20 Jan)
    Scout.com (Chris Steuber): DE Everson Griffen ()
    New Era Scouting (Matt Miller): WR Dez Bryant (2 Feb)
    The Football Expert (Michael Abromowitz): Derrick Morgan (24 Jan)
    The Football Expert (Gregory Cox): DE Jason Pierre Paul (19 Jan)
    Walter Football (Matt McGuire): DE Jason Pierre Paul (2 Feb)
    NFLDraftU (Sideline Scouting): DE Jason Pierre Paul (26 Jan)
    Draftking (Lou Pickney): DE/OLB Jerry Hughes (16 Jan)
    Sport Illustrated (Don Banks): DE Everson Griffen (29 Jan)
    NFLDraftScout (Rob Rang): DE Corey Wotton (19 Jan)
    NFLDraftScout (Chad Reuter): DE Derrick Morgan (19 Jan)
    CollegeFootballNews (Pete Fiutak): DE Jason Pierre Paul (30 Jan)
    Huddle Report (Drew Boylhart): DE Jason Pierre Paul (27 Jan)
    Huddle Report (Robby Esch): DE Derrick Morgan (28 Jan)
    Huddle Report (Aaron Freeman): DE Jason Pierre Paul (24 Jan)
    Huddle Report (Carlos Dunlap): DE Carlos Dunlap (25 Jan)

    It looks like the experts have a favorit:
    7 Jason Pierre Paul
    3 Carlos Dunlap
    3 Everson Griffen
    3 Derrick Morgan
    1 Joe Haden
    1 Brian Price
    1 Dez Bryant
    1 Corey Wotton
    1 Jerry Hughes

    Interessting case:
    Matt Miller mocks Dez Bryant to the Titans. I can not believe that the Titans could go after the next Receiver since Britt looks great in his first year and the defense s*cked but he was the only one of the experts I know which got the right pick last year!

    It's a lot easier to say who we would NOT take: and that's Dez Bryant - why would the Titans select a receiver in the first round who didn't even play his last year in college and played in a conference not known for defense? Added to this after having played a season with mostly a run game and after having already selected a receiver in the first round the year before.

    The titans will most definitely select defense in the first round because that's where the biggest need is. I still think the Titans have more than 1 need on defense and will need to trade down so they can grab a good DE/OLB hybrid like Sergio Kindle and a quality CB to complement Finnegan.

    Well...

    Very nice post! I think Graham CAN play a 3-4 OLB if he's mostly the rush guy and does the occasional zone drop but think he's BETTER suited for 4-3 DE.

    Um...

    How has he done on the Titans pick the last 10 years? A lot of people at one time or another last year had us taking Britt. It wasn't exactly a shock.

    I just HOPE we don't take a Wooten or Dunlap!

    No, it wasn't a shock. But the most other experts had other WRs going to the Titans. I still have the list if you don't trust me! ;)
    Unfortunatelly I cant find a archiv so I dont know how good he was with the Titans Picks in the last years...

    @ Ericgolonghorns
    I know thats unlike but I wouldn't exclude it. Nobody saw us gettin 4.24 after drafting LenDale one year before that.
    If he falls to 16/17 our Front Offsice will have a hard time to pass on him.
    He has Top10-Talent and he is a play maker. On the other hand I don't see him falling to this position, like gut said.

    I would hate to see us drafting Griffen. He is overrated in my eyes.
    He s*cked in every single game I saw from USC.

    What I'd love to do is trade out of the first round, maybe get 2 picks in the second round or something. Either way I think defensive end is the way to go. Corner is def a position of need but we do have 1 proven corner, we can always pick up a solid starter to go along with Finn and we do have 2 young guys who still have upside. With defensive end our two starters from last year will likely be gone so an impact player is very much needed and I doubt we make a big signing like a Richard Seymour.

    Well...

    That should get someone(s) to call for a trade up and a good reason to trade down!

    I think Griffen has a lot of athleticism (at least on tape anyway) but he doesn't look like he can read a play. Translates to...RAW...BOOM OR BUST.

    We'll see how he works out at the combine.

    Who really excites you who COULD fall out of the top 10? I find it interesting not more people have us taking Earl Thomas.
