    Conklin of all players will only get better with pads on, physicality is his strongest suit. Can't wait to see Murray and Henry run behind him in pre season.

    People still on here complaining of "where" Conklin was taken. Mind blower. They were taking a tackle all along, you don't have to like it, but they were. So what's better, getting 2 firsts and 3rds and moving back 7 spots, or taking a bust like Tunsil at #1?...exactly. It was solid. We gave up a bit to move up to #8 but whatever. We still walk away with a bunch of picks this year, the guy they want with no baggage, and 2 extra picks next year (one of which will be a nice one from the Rams)...So truthfully we gave up nothing...We never had it to start. Now let's see what the kid can do.

    Agreed. I would have been pissed if they took Tunsil at 1. I really thought they would, as did most people.

    With 2 mid to early firsts in the draft next year, the Titans are in prime position to pick up a couple of play makers. Filled the hole at RT with a player they wanted all along too. Win-Win.

    Exactly. Now you have the depth. Next year, you go grab two luxury play makers, and lord knows we will need it. Likely at CB/WR

    The idea of landing a top guy at each position is exciting.

    I'd trade a first for Alshon.

    So glad it wasn't Tunsil . Conklin is solid. Great work ethic and great attitude. Just like Sharp.

    Guy hasn't played a professional snap. Let's not anoint him to Canton just yet.
