    I think it was assumed by letting Conklin walk and the history Kelly had. May not have been assumed he would take over day 1, but there had to be an assumption he would be taking over this year. Even if he gets picked in year one, he takes his lumps but hopefully improves Nate Davis style.
    All said, very pleased with how the OL has played without him needing to see the field. He clearly needs some time to learn the NFL.

    I think the Simmons situation was different too. He was drafted injured and it was known that it wouldn't be possible to play until at least week 8-9 his rookie season. We also still have Casey on the line until Simmons would be ready in year 2. He has performed better than I could have expected.

    Simmons is literally a top 5 pick talent wise so there isn't much comparison. Plus a RT screwing up means your QB gets killed so it made sense unless Kelly really played poorly that Wilson would have a tough time breaking into the line up. Wilson was a little bit of a reach but JRob saw long term potential rather than immediate benefits. We just have to hope Wilson isn't another DJ Fluker.

    Titans allowed 56 sacks last season. They’ve allowed 16 this year. The Oline is fine. Who cares if the 1st round pick sits this year? Hell, I won’t be pissed if he ends up being a bust. JRob has hit on his other 5 1st round picks. I’ll take 5 out of 6 over all of the previous Titans Gm’s first round success rate. Compared to the rest of the league, I’d say the Titans have drafted better than most. Improving record is proof.

    Most people’s frustration is that we see teams like the Chiefs, Steelers, Colts, and Ravens getting solid production from their draft picks...just imagine where we could be if we were too...it is tough to look towards the future when you are in the middle of a battle.

    Does Wilson have experience at LT? We know Kelly isnt a great LT and is better than Wilson at RT right now. It's very unfortunate that we lost Lewan, but I bet Wilson would be stepping in if we had lost Kelly instead.

    Evans could be our leading rushing and Cole McDonald could be our quarterback and we could be like 2-9.

    Wasn't the whole point in taking him that he filled an obvious need? There were definitely better "best player available" guys on the board. They drafted for need, but they still aren't filling that need. It's not ideal.

    The issue is we aren’t some crap team that needs a bunch of production from rookies which is awesome, but having a little production would certainly be of benefit and the other top teams have been made better by their rookies and FA moves.

    Pretty hard to say that JRob had a good offseason...
