    Dude is a monster at DB. I have no problem drafting oversized DB who can tackle.

    Agreed. I didn't realize he was damn near 6'2. The 40 time doesn't bug me as much as it usually does either. Neither Browner nor Sherman ran faster than 4.5 and they're doing just fine by using their height and length.

    Speed helps, especially in recovery. But DB is about route anticipation and jumping at the right time. Guys who really need speed are the ones who get burned then have to catch the receiver before the ball gets there.

    Plus....this guy could develop into a safety in the future.

    Wreh-Wilson ran a 4.39 at his pro-day.

    I don't know much about him, but I'm gonna go ahead and say he'll be better than Milliner. We'll see.

    Leading up to the draft, the Titans indicated they were looking for cornerbacks who excelled in press coverage.

    Connecticut’s Blidi Wreh-Wilson appears to be a good fit.

    The Titans drafted Wreh-Wilson in the third round (70th overall). The 6-foot, 192-pounder is regarded as a physical player. Wreh-Wilson recorded two interceptions in a 2010 game against Vanderbilt, returning one for a touchdown.

    His arrival could allow the Titans to move veteran Alterraun Verner into the slot this fall as well.

    “It was something that we practiced a lot,’’ Wreh-Wilson said. “As the season went on we got into more and more zone, but in practice and in the offseason we spent a lot of time working on our press mechanics and how to be technicians at the line of scrimmage.

    “I feel like going into a more press scheme is something that I like to do. I like to play close to people and press the line forward.”

    Wreh-Wilson (6-0, 192) started 40 games with the Huskies, finishing his career with 181 tackles and eight interceptions.

    He was an All Big East first team performer as a senior, when he started 11 games and had 47 tackles, deflected nine passes and also had an interception.

    Ah, I was going by his combine numbers. That just sweetens the pot. His measurables are officially at freak status and match up with any other CB in the draft. How can anyone hate this pick?

    I don't hate the pick, just don't know a lot about the guy. I'm just putting some faith in the FO after last years draft and this years FA. And I really don't think Williams would allow any sub par players to be picked, it will be his defense no matter what anyone would have us believe.

    You forgot to add that he has never missed a day in school.
