    Hahaha the first part of my last response wasn't even meant to be there

    I think it saved from our convo last night.


    I agree, I wqnt Gordon and Gurley more than Ajayi. I'm a fan of Ajayi but I'm not that stupid hahaha


    If Gordon and Gurley are avaliable .. Titans need to draft them

    Yeldon, yeldon, yeldon. I put all my chips in on him. I think he will be a great player.

    I would put money down that some of the guys talking about passing on Ajayi haven't watched a second of his tape. That being said, I really do love Yeldon. Choosing between those two in the 3rd-4th round would be really tough for me.

    I have watched Ajayi... faces bad competition like I said, so I'd need to really do some deeper research on him.

    I like Ajayi more than Yeldon.

    I also like Derrick Henry more than Yeldon. Yeldon is probably my least favorite of the recent Bama RBs, to be honest.

    He helped his #20 ranked Boise State team upset #10 Arizona in a bowl game. He tuned them up for 134 yards (6.1 YPC) and 3 TD's. He could've done more but I'm pretty sure he played hurt through most of the second half. He showed up against a top 10 team, that should help the "bad competition" issue.

    Yea, but that's just one game. Surely he played some other decent teams. I'll check it out.

    I'm gonna be watching more highlights of some players leading up to the draft, so I'll look at him a bit further.

    Call me crazy, but I want us to pickup Mark Ingram over drafting a RB.. logic says that's stupid, giving a RB the 2nd contract is never smart. Especially one that's been listed a "bust" his entire career, until this year. However, he just turned 25 and only has 582 career carries. Watching him last year I saw that superstar potential, and he'd likely be no more than what we paid Shonn Greene.

    I would think a younger and healthier guy would get MORE money than Greene. Really depends on our other needs. If we are really stuck trying to get top free agents and have to focus on 2nd tier and 3rd tier guys AND we can get Ingram in the $3mil/yr range, grab him. But we need to first focus on a Big #1 WR, Pass rushing OLB, OL, S, etc

    I hope the trend continues of nobody taking a running back until at least the 2nd round. That gives great value at the position later in the draft because I wouldn't take a RB until at least round 4 because of so many other needs elsewhere.

    I really like the kid, David Cobb from Minnesota. He's a bowling ball and great in short yardage situations. Would be a better, cheaper option than Greene.

    Another guy I like is Josh Robinson from Mississippi State. His game reminds me a lot of MJD. A really tough runner for his size, not sure he's a fit in our offense though.

    I will be SO pissed if we take a running back in the second round this year.
