    true on most counts but i dont think saffold is as egregiously overpaid as you think. he and lewan were great once they started to click during the season.

    conk was a good pick as well but our salary cap couldnt hold him because of saffolds contract.... was saffold worth letting conk walk? I think no

    He was a complete failure at it in Philly and it lead to him being traded away for a bag of chicken wings.

    So no

    I’ll be the other side.

    Yes. He was a 3rd rd pick thrown in because of injury and didn’t do all that bad, or at least improved as the season progressed.

    Titans have had plenty of later picks work out great on the OL. Give this guy a season, I bet he improves both running and pass blocking and becomes a pretty decent lineman. Maybe not pro bowler or anything, but good enough to stick around for cheap.


    Edit: guess I should have read all the posts before making mine. Lot of people are supporters of Davis.

    Did you just throw shade on nate not blocking on of the best dl in the nfl? He was a raw rook from a small school. This is nuts.

    Davis will be are starting guard next year. Bank on that. You can’t be good every where and he is serviceable. We have other areas of need that we will address in the draft. Maybe a later pick on interior OL.

    I think you're undervaluing the chicken wings, it was more like a bag of roadkill.


    As for Davis, I also thought he progressed well toward the end of season and playoffs. The limited offseason won't help his development, but I see no reason he can't come in and continue to get better and be a solid starter for us.

    I'm more worried about Kelly as full-time starter, he's ok in a pinch, but good players usually beat him pretty badly, I hope we come away with a better option early in draft.

    And then there is the depth issue. Someone will get injured. Who comes off the bench?

    Nate Davis was a rookie on an offensive line who blocked for the league leading rusher.. He did a great job as a rookie especially once our offense started forming that chemistry in the middle of the year. He's 22 years old, and he can only get better. Yes, as of now, he is undoubtedly the future RG of this team.

    Chill out folks...have some faith in our young guys. Stop being so damn pessimistic all the time.

    The real question should be when tf are we going to trash the ugly ass new unis.

    I will be shocked, if we don't draft OL with our first selection. Nate and Kelly starting together? I just cant see that happening. We draft a monster OL, and keep pounding the ball with Henry.
