So far, I give the Titans a D minus (1 Viewer)

Yes, I am aware that their scouting/personel department is very good. BUt I don't like ANY of the picks so far. More to the point, I think they passed on guys that ere CLEARLY better than the selections they made at all 4 spots.1.06 - Should Have Been: Antrel Rolle or MIke WIlliams.Ok, I can give them this one. If they think Adam Jones is a player, then so be it. However, Jones is NEVER going to cover someone like Mike Williams or Randy Moss or Reggie Wayne in the redzone. EVER. Neat-o, he's got great heart and toughness. And WOW, he's fast. And he jumps real high, alright! I say, "So what, he's still going to get owned by bigger, quicker WRs al over the league. Best I can tell, the Titans had to get rid of a top notch CB (Rolle) and replaced him with a smaller CB who excels in coverage of mediocre WRs. I'm not excited.2.09 - Traded down and ended up with someone who wasn't in any top-100 that I've seen. PLUS, Khalif Barnes was still on the board. Taking Roos might be a god pick eventually, but he's at least a year away from even being remotely worth putting on the field. I have no idea how they passed on Barnes. Even if they didn't want Barnes, I wouold have rather seen Adam Terry, Matt ROth, DAn Cody, or a 3rd tier WR. Instead, we got an OT that would have beenthere in round 3. Greeeeat.3.04 - Hey everyone, Justin Tuck (DE) and Eric Green (CB) and Stanley WIlson (CB) are on the board...lets take a WR thats really fast and needs a ton of help route running. As a default setting, Drew Bennet is going to be our WR1 this season while uber-talented and always hurt Ty Calico will be our WR2. We could have taken Chris Henry, WR-WVU, but we'd rather take someone even more raw.3.32 - Brandon Jones is a player....a player indeed. Nevermind that we still need help in the defensive backfield and Ernest SHazor AND Brandon Browner are still available.In short, I see that the Titans, my beloved Titans, ended up with a CB that will be overwhelmed a minimum of 4 games a year (Colts x 2, Andre Johnson x 2), an offensive tackle that could have been had a round later, and 2 WRs that are neither special nor pro-ready... :no: Excellent work. I look forward to getting Matt Leinart, Omar Jacobs or Vince Young at 1.01 next year. :rolleyes: Colin

 
When the Lions traded with Tennessee and jumped up four spots, I couldn't help but think that we overpaid and that Tennessee got a good deal adding the fourth rounder. I like the Cody pick and I think he fits in nice but it seemed a steep price. Then I saw who you took Roos at #41 and I also couldn't help but wonder why the Titans took him over Barnes. Anyway, I wondered the same thing and thought they could have done better there. Pac-Man is a top notch talent who will produce and be that #1 corner for you guys; not to mention, he brings a lot of Bling-Bling to Tennessee...

I have every confidence that Jones can improve the return game and shut down 2/3s of the WR1s in the league.Problem is, those qualities help you earn the WIld Card but will never get you to the Super Bowl.

They should have taken Rolle

Deja Vu :loco:
 
Colin,C'mon man. Take a deep breath, step back....away from the ledge and know that tomorrow is a new day. Pac Man Jones was a solid pick at #6 (although I would have thought Rogers or Rolle would have gone first, if not for KFAN in Minneapolis "scooping" the Pac Man house-hunting in Tennessee bit on Thursday). After that though, I have no idea what the Titans were thinking with those Roos, Roby and Jones picks! :X Still, it'll be okay eventually. Realistically, the Titans weren't going to contend for a title in 2005 anyway, so go young, take some chances on some "home run or KO" prospects, then re-group with another top playmaker in the top five picks in 2006. Hey, at least the Titans have moved into Step Two of their Twelve Step program! Packer-Backers are still smack-dab in the middle Step One...... ;)

I definetely see your point, but I disagree. I would be muchhappier with..Option A:

Mike Williams

Justin Miller

Justin Tuck

Brandon Browner

Option B:

Antrell Rolle

Khalif Barnes

Chris Henry

Brandon Browner/Ernest Shazor

Colin

 
What Colin's really upset about is Barnes slipping to the Jags and letting fill one of their needs with a player that some mocks said that the Jags would take in the first.

 
Pac-Man brings more to the table than just measurables...he plays with a fire that few have.He'll become a fan favorite in Tennessee before you know it.

I'm actually just upset that the Titans didnt get the least bit better today. :no:
 
Oh yeah, I COMPLETELY agree with you! The players you got aren't nearly as solid as numerous other combinations of players you could have had (such as your two options). I guess I'm just saying that if the Vikings can survive picks like Dimitrius Underwood (sp), the Titans will be okay too. They had a chance to take 2-3 steps forward today, but decided to only take one step forward (Pac Man). That probably means you're potentially looking at one extra sub-.500 season before the organization gets back into the playoffs. It sucks, but every teams goes through it in the Salary Cap era.

 
I don't buy this argument on his size. The majority of the starting cornerbacks in the NFL fall between 5'10 and 6'1, with their other attributes leading to their levels of success.

The fact is that there aren't cornerbacks anywhere who can cover these receivers the way that you'd like. Corners with the size of Moss usually don't possess the athleticism. Unless Jones is smaller than the 5'11 187 that he's listed, he'll be fine.

:goodposting: Corners have to play the run so they'll never be as tall as the WRs, nor do they need to be. You can't get underneath the RBs shoulderpads when you'r 6'3".

Height is overrated for DBs.

I'll take speed, heart and instincts...PacMan has all three.

 
Size at CB is somewhat overrated. Look who the Pats had at CB when they won the Super Bowl this year.Asante Samuel: 5'10"Randall Gay: 5'11"Troy Brown: 5'10"Earthwind Moreland: 5'10"Hank Poteat: 5'9"Guys like Antoine Winfield and Aaron Glenn can offset the size disadvantage with great technique and physical play.Most starting CBs likely fall in the 5'10" to 6'0" range.

And here I was very happy with what the Titans did today.Pac-Man is a MUCH MUCH better fit for the Titans than Rolle is, as I have said on here quite a few times. Of course I would rather have seen Mike Williams, but of the players available, Pac-Man was the 2nd best available pick.

Roos was incredibly good in college, is incredibly smart, and will likely be able to step in quickly. The Titans draft smart players so that they'll be able to contribute quickly, and Roos is just that. Id be surprised if he isnt starting at RT by midseason.

Roby and Jones were both decent picks...I like Jones a bit more, but neither was a reach and both provide solid depth, can't complain there.

Plus we got an extra 4th in the DET trade, an excellent pickup.

I think you are being way overly critical of the Titans for drafting according to their current value rather than what your outdated valuation of these guys. Your being mad at them not drafting Henry, Shazor or Browner is almost funny. None of those guys have any business going in the 1st day, especially after their respective combine workouts.

 
I had the Titans with M.Williams as a lock with Chow in the mix. Pac Man may be a player, but remember, the guy is only 5'9". No matter how athletic you are, your genetics can not make up for it. BTW who can tell me who the #2 CB is (other than homies) for the Titans?With not stockpiling 1st day picks, or even getting value for those picks, the Titans may very well be looking towards Linehart in '06.D+ :no:

LHUCKS likes him, now your F'ed. :excited:
:rolleyes: shoo...off to your yahoo leagues.
Your like a blonde chick, I mention two words and then you get off track...Chris Brown. ;)
And you're like Ron Dayne...not very likely to add value. :lol: Leave your insults at home :hint:

LUCKS, I know you guys had an iffy draft and your cranky. Please PM your address and I will send you a check to buy a sense of humor.
 
THey aren;t doing much today to improve my perception....

Colin
Really?Roydell? Stewart?

I thought those were two awesome values for the 2nd day.

Reynaldo Hill in the 7th? Thats a solid pick.

Im a big fan of Scaife also...as is Bloom.

What could they have done to improve your perception?

 
Interesting.I think the Titans have had a great draft, Mort thinks they had the best draft, and several NFL personnel directors agree. :boxing:

 
I definetely see your point, but I disagree. I would be muchhappier with..

Option A:

Mike Williams

Justin Miller

Justin Tuck

Brandon Browner

Option B:

Antrell Rolle

Khalif Barnes

Chris Henry

Brandon Browner/Ernest Shazor

Colin
If your guys were fast on the phone they might be able to make you feel better, considering Browner's a UDFA now. :loco:
 
Cut to commercial.[ a retangular table where 9 men wearing coaches' whistles and 1 oddly frumpy man in an apron sit. They analyze some papers. ]Nine of out ten NFL draft analysts agree - the Titans 2005 draft was great!j/k HErd - I hope it works out for you guys.

 
Are you going to be crying like this when Adam Jones is returning INTs, kickoffs, and Punts for TDs?

Troy Flemming and Damien Nash (just drafted late) will be given a chance to back up Brown. I wouldn't be suprised to see them sign a veteran at some juncture for the league min. (Anthony THomas comes to mind).COlin

Ah.Well, as I said, Mort said he thinks the Titans had the best draft for 2005, and said during his intro that several personnel directors in the NFL agreed with him.

Doesn't mean much, but it should say something about everyone on here bagging on the Titans' draft.

 
Well, I'm glad some Titan fans aren't overly negative. Sorry to hear you're so p*ssed Colin.First off, I like the fact that they got SOOO many picks...just like last year. (11 this year, 13 in 2004). That alone makes for a better draft, and I give Reese full credit for the trade-down and the trade of Hall. He should get some of the credit for the Kearse / Smith compensation too.Secondly, I have so much faith in the Titans being able to develop players. Year after year their mid-round picks seem to be starting and playing well in the near future. I don't claim to know a lot about any of the picks, but I can't wait to see these guys develop. And I'm expecting BIG THINGS from the 2004 guys.I think they addressed their needs with quality AND quantity. 3 WRs, 3 DBs and 3 O-Linemen. Some of these will pan out and help with the rebuilding, just like the 3 DEs last year did / will.Is Jarett Payton still in the mix?I just took a quick look over the potential depth chart (offense and defense) and had a couple observations:1) It seems like every single starter has never played for anyone but the Titans. We are young and the team has been built from the draft and a few UDFA signings.2) That defense is YOUNG!! Bullock and Sirmon are the only guys with more than 4 years experience. This is exciting, and I'm hoping they can really mature as a group this year and next.My final observation is that most Titan fans are mad at who was NOT picked, not the guys we did pick. Forget about McPherson and Mike Williams and Rolle and such. Take a good look at who WAS picked and complain if you don't like those guys. Woulda - coulda - shoulda.

:goodposting: You're right on with the observation about the history of the roster...they are almost all Titans, born and bred.

 
Hey Colin, just wanted to chime in with a vote of confidence with the Titans 3rd round pick of Roby. Personally I didn't think he'd go until the early 5th, but I doubt they woulda nabbed him here if they didn't know other teams were high on him.This guy really reminds me (a LOT) of Ike Bruce. I think you'll see him sit and learn this year (I know that doesn't make you feel better), then be WR2/3 next year. He'll be in the lineup this year if Calico goes down. Anyway, give him 1 to 1.5 years of NFL coaching, and this kid will be every bit of Isaac Bruce good.I think it was an outstanding pick, but might have been just a bit premature. Really thought he'd go around the 20-25th WR off the board (just because he's had pretty small amounts of exposure). In short...he's solid.

 
A happy Lions fan here just joining in to say thank you to the Titans for passing on Mike Williams. :P Also did anyone else think that Pac Man Jones was Easy E reincarnated?

When the Lions traded with Tennessee and jumped up four spots, I couldn't help but think that we overpaid and that Tennessee got a good deal adding the fourth rounder.  I like the Cody pick and I think he fits in nice but it seemed a steep price. 

Then I saw who you took Roos at #41 and I also couldn't help but wonder why the Titans took him over Barnes.  Anyway, I wondered the same thing and thought they could have done better there. 

Pac-Man is a top notch talent who will produce and be that #1 corner for you guys; not to mention, he brings a lot of Bling-Bling to Tennessee...

Colin, I normally agree with you on alot of your thoughts about the Titans. Don't get me wrong the first 3rd round pick I have a big problem with as there were other options out there. However, I firmly believe that Pacman will be a better corner in thsi league than Rolle. How many times of watching rolle get smoked deep( not barely either, 5-7 yards smoked deep) does it take before you relaize that this guy can't cover reggie wayne, Marvin, A. Johnson, etc. The fact that Rosenhaus is his agent is the icing on the cake for him being passed over. Did you hear what Fisher said about rolle? He said thaT We really didn't want to draft a guy at CB that at the end of every paragraph about him in the pre-draft meetings it seemed like the clause " and if not we can play him at safety" was attached. And I agree 100%. Also, in regards to Roos I believe that you just have to trust the titans FO. Our track record on OL is incredible. I firmly believe that They knwo what they are doing. Clearly we weren't the only team that though Barnes sucked. The guy was supposed to go late first and he dropped forever. He is lazy and soft. Sorry, but I don't care if every mag in america has him as the 3rd tackle; if he is a wuss I don't want him. I believe Roos will be an animal. Also. evidently fisher and reese don't think he is as far away form ready as you and everyone else like to say. In a post draft interview, Reese said plainly that Roos would start at RT this year. Heck, I was suprised myself. But that shows how highly they think of this guy.

The Roby pick ticked me off pretty bad. The jones pick however, I actually kind of like. The second day though IMO was excellent on th ewhole. Everyone #####es that we didn't get a rb in the 4th. In order to do that we would have picked the RB before the run on RB that happened in the early 4th. It really is hard to anticpate that 3 good backs would go in 4 picks in between out two 4th round picks though. On top of all this, I absolutely love the FULLER pick. I watched tape on this kid, and I love him. He is a gamer. This kid flat out makes plays and he looks extremely fluid with ball after interceptions. He also does it all shown in the fact that he blocked several punts and FGs in his career.

The Roydell Williams pick was an absolute steal. Just pretend that we took Roydell in the 3rd and Roby with this pick and it all evens out.

I also like our last pick CB Hill. The dude runs a 4.32. 7th round, nuff said!!! No risk, very high reward potential.

In general, I think people are down on this draft because we did not land any so called "glamour" picks. If people are not drafted where the consensus thinks they should go then its a bad pick. I don't get it. I want my scouting department to be bale to look outside the box. i will go on record right now saying that Roos has a better pro career than Barnes.

Looks like Kiper doesn't agree with you Colin. He puts the Titans in the top third of the league as far as their draft goes:ESPN:

Tennessee Titans: BCorner Adam Jones fills a huge need for the Titans and Michael Roos is a very good tackle for Tennessee to add in the second round. Courtney Roby is an average receiver and Brandon Jones is OK, but I actually like fourth-round wideout Roydell Williams more than either Roby or Jones. Running back Damien Nash was a stretch in the fifth round but offensive tackle Daniel Loper is good in pass protection, and there is some question as to whether tight end Bo Scaife can stay healthy.
 
Ironically enough, I personally like their WR selections in reverse order. Roydell could develop into a starter in the league eventually IMHO.

 
I've warmed up to the guys they selected a lilttle, but I'm still not overwhelmed.If Adam Jones ends up being a good corner, then so be it. Its hardly worth splitting hairs over a 1st round pick that clearly was high on many many boards.Roos....hm. Its pretty clear by now that a lot of people (myself included) were a bit off on their OT rankings. That said, I can't help but wonder if another Corner at that point or another trade down would have bore more fruit. If he ends up as a solid Tackle, like they obviously think he can be, then great. I'm just a little suprised by what I think was uncharactersitic overspending.Roby....eh. Jones...eh x 2. Strikes me as similar to a dozen other WRs that pop up in every draft. Truthfully, looking back at it, I think there was some nice value at Oline and especially CB still on the board at this point (Mathis, Wilson, Green).Fuller . I think that Elton Brown and Marion Barber would have been MUCH better selections here. NOt that there is a problem with Fuller per se, just that he strikes me as being painfully raw. I think that the idea is to get Fuller to be in the rotation at Safety and be deep depth at CB. Maybe they can coach him up to pay off. If so, then :thumbup: . If not, then I think passing on a guy like Elton Brown was a big error. Stewart is a nice pick, but I worry about his range. If the long term plan is to have Roos at LT and Stewart at RT, I can see it working out. I actually like the Stewart pick for the most part.Williams was a nice pick, but he makes me wish we'd passed on Jones earlier and selected another Corner, an RB, or more Oline help.The rest is depth so its hard to argue with much since its impossible to tell who will pan out. It will be a good draft if 2 of these guys are on the roster in 3 years. i DO like the Hill pick in the 7th.Final grade - 1st day: CSecond day - 2nd day: B, but only because I think passing on Brown and Barber for Fuller was a large error
