  1. He reminds me a bit of Anquan Boldin. Won't beat you with speed but knows how to run routes and out physical DBs
  2. Interesting...very interesting. I would be in full support of us going in big after him.
  3. I went: ILB Don'ta Hightower CB Logan Ryan WR Robert Woods SS Duron Harmon DB Micah Hyde WR Jeremy Kerley
  4. Doing more at CB was definitely something I thought of but then had some background thoughts that pushed me away from that. Here are the reasons: 1. I do not see us as a team that will get into a bidding war and throw tons of money at Bouye, Gilmore, and Johnson. Those guys are probably going to get $10M plus each year and a boatload of guaranteed money. No doubt they are good, but I just do not think we will do it. I could definitely see us signing a 2nd CB in free agency but it would be someone who did not get the offers they liked (Similar to what Amukamara did with the Jags last year). 2. LeBeau's history with young CB and drafting them super early. Someone has pointed it out, that LeBeau has rarely had early picks at CB that have played significantly. 3. The development of LeShaun Sims. LeBeau, Robinson, and Mularkey have all spoken highly of him and it would seem that he will get a fair shake in the competition to become a starter across from someone else. We also have Kalan Reed that could potentially improve as well. It total, if we went with an off-season like this we would add two new CB and a new starting Safety. The lineup would go from McCourty, Cox, McCain, Johnson, Searcy to Ryan, Sims, Sutton, Byard, and Adams in one season's time. That looks like a unit that will be improved. They may be young and will lead to some road bumps, but they have the speed and athleticism we need in the defensive secondary. That was at least my reasoning behind why I went the way I did at CB.
  5. Titanskick8851 2017 Mock Off-Season V. 3.0 Cuts: WR Harry Douglas RB Antonio Andrews Re-sign/Re-structure: CB Jason McCourty - 2 years, $7M DL Karl Klug - 1 years, $3M TE Anthony Fasano - 1 year, $2M QB Matt Cassel - 1 year, $2M ILB Sean Spence - 2 years, $4M SS Damien Stafford - 3 years, $10M Not Re-signed: WR Kendall Wright CB Valentino Blake RS/WR Marc Mariani OG Chance Warmack OL Byron Bell FS Rashad Johnson ILB/OLB Nate Palmer OLB David Bass Free Agency CB Logan Ryan - 4 years, $32M 5'11 - 195 lbs. - 26 years old Stats: 2016 (NE): 92 Tackles, 1 Sack, 2 INT, 11 PD, 1 FF 2015 (NE): 74 Tackles, 4 INT, 14 PD 2014 (NE): 42 Tackles, 2 INT, 6 PD, 1 FF 2013 (NE): 35 Tackles, 1.5 Sacks, 5 INT, 10 PD, 1 FF - Having now been the GM (Now VP) of the Titans for more than a year now, I believe we will continue to see his blueprint put into place. It is no secret our secondary was a enormous weakness for us as we got into the last half of the year. While Sims played well as he got comfortable, we still lack playmakers in the defensive backfield. Ryan is someone Robinson scouted heavily before he was drafted by NE. Although his season got started off a little rough, he closed phenomenally. Ryan can play outside or cover the slot and is the versatile player that I believe Jrob will covet. Ryan will play outside in base and cover the slot in Nickel packages. ILB Gerald Hodges - 4 years, $25M 6'2 - 236 lbs. - 26 years old Stats: 2016 (SF): 83 Tackles, 3 sacks, 2 INT, 2 PD, 1 FF 2015 (MIN/SF): 70 Tackles, 1 PD 2014 (MIN): 66 Tackles, 0.5 Sacks, 1 INT, 1 TD, 7 PD 2013 (MIN): 5 Tackles - While it may not be a huge need, ILB could be a big position we look to upgrade in FA or the Draft. We choose to target and sign a young and productive ILB from the 49ers. Hodges is a read and react type of linebacker who also has played well in coverage. At 26 years old he has plenty of tread left and can be an impact player and add some much needed speed to the defense. WR Robert Woods - 4 years, $24M 6'0 - 190 lbs. - 24 years old Stats: 2016 (BUF): 51 Rec, 613 yards, 1 TD 2015 (BUF): 47 Rec, 552 yards, 3 TD 2014 (BUF): 65 Rec, 699 yards, 5 TD 2013 (BUF): 40 Rec, 587 yards, 3 TD - A point of the off-season that Robinson and Mularkey have been pretty transparent about is adding some more talent at the WR position. In free agency we target the 24-year-old WR out of USC. Early in Woods career he did not live up to the hype he generated in college. This year he was very clutch in 3rd downs and catches for 1st downs. Woods immediately steps in as a starter and slot WR for us day 1 and gives Marcus someone really dependable to target. RB Rex Burkhead - 2 years, $7M 5'10 - 210 lbs. - 26 years old. Stats: 2016: 74 rush, 344 yards, 4.6 avg, 2 Rush TD, 17 Rec, 145 yards, 0 Rec TD - 13 ST tackles 2015: 4 rush, 4 yards, 1.0 avg, 0 Rush TD, 10 Rec, 94 yards, 1 TD Rec - 11 ST tackles 2014: 9 rush, 27 yards, 3.0 avg, 1 Rush TD, 7 Rec, 49 yards, 0 Rec TD - 5 ST tackles 2013: ------- - When looking to fill out the roster you want versatile guys who can fill a multitude of areas. Burkhead fits this to a T. He will serve as our 3rd RB, but will mainly be a big contributor on all special teams units and also can function in the pass catching, protection, and slot WR roles. NFL Draft: 1st Round (5th Overall): LSU Safety Jamal Adams 6'1 - 213 lbs. - 21 years old Stats: 2016: 42 Tackles, 7.5 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 INT, 4 PD, 1 FF 2015: 48 Tackles, 5.5 TFL, 0 Sack, 4 INT, 6 PD, 1 FF 2014: 38 Tackles, 5 TFL, 1 Sack, 0 INT, 4 PD, 0 FF - With the 5th Overall Selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Jamal Adams, Safety, LSU. While trade offers are out there to the Titans, we do not find the package of picks that would be acceptable to drop down from the 5th Overall Spot. Adams is just too good of a player to drop down from without a great package of picks coming back. Adams is a Day 1 starter and adds a lot of versatility to the defense. He can play Cover 1 Deep, Cover 2, or be a force in the box. He also has the athletic ability to really match up well with the TEs, RBs, and even Slot WRs in the league. While I know some people may think a Safety is a little risky/early at #5, I believe you take the BPA and make sure you get a great player. 1st Round (18th Overall): Alabama TE OJ Howard 6'6 - 251 lbs. - 22 years old 2016: 45 Rec, 595 yards, 3 TD 2015: 38 Rec, 602 yards, 2 TD 2014: 17 Rec, 260 yards, 0 TD 2013: 14 Rec, 269 yards, 2 TD - With the 18th Overall pick, the Titans now continue to bolster the offense and add to that “Exotic Smashmouth” mentality. Depending who you are TE, may or may not be major need, but the one thing that is not in doubt is the talent of Howard and that he is really to be a contributor day 1. I believe Robinson could see Howard as a possible transcendent player whom he could look as a comparison to Gronk coming out when he was in NE. A two TE base offense could cause a lot of issues for multiple teams in the NFL, especially one with as athletically gifted as Howard and Walker are. Trade: Titans trade 3rd Rounder (84th Overall), 7th Rounder (223rd Overall), and 2018 4th Rounder to Browns for #65 Overall. 3rd Round (65th Overall): East Carolina WR Zay Jones 6'2 - 202 lbs. - 21 years old 2016: 158 Rec, 1746 yards, 8 TD 2015: 98 Rec, 1099 yards, 5 TD 2014: 81 Rec, 830 yards, 5 TD 2013: 62 Rec, 604 yards, 5 TD - After not having a pick in the 2nd round, we are eager to get back on the board so we put a package together to move up in the 3rd Round our pick in when the 3rd round starts. After adding Robert Woods in free agency as the slot WR, we add a strong and fast outside WR in Zay Jones in the 3rd. Jones was one of biggest playmaking WR’s in NCAA history and I believe his game will really translate. He has a great knack for high pointing the ball and grabbing the ball away from his body. Jones is the All-Time Reception leader in NCAA history. His work ethic will be what makes him a great player in the league. 3rd Round (100th Overall): Tennessee DB Cam Sutton 5'11 - 186 lbs. - 21 years old Stats: 2016: 23 Tackles, 2 TFL, 1 INT, 4 PD, 0 FF 2015: 28 Tackles, 3 TFL, 1 INT, 6 PD, 2 FF - 26 PR, 467 yards, 18 avg, 2 TD 2014: 37 Tackles, 4 TFL, 3 INT, 13 PD, 1 FF - 14 PR, 158 yards, 11.3 avg, 1 TD 2013: 39 Tackles, 4 TFL, 1 Sack, 2 INT, 7 PD, 0 FF - With our last pick on the 2nd day, we get lucky and find Sutton has slipped to our pick. Similar to Byard last year, I think our staff will gravitate towards Sutton since we can put in more time with him, as he is a local prospect. Sutton always had a knack for the ball and does play bigger than his size. Sutton finished his career with 37 PD including seven interceptions and allowed just three touchdowns during career. He also is a very solid Punt Returner, as he has a career average of 14.9 yards per return and has returned three for TDs. 4th Round (116th Overall): Texas A&M OLB/DE Daeshon Hall 6’5 - 265 lbs. - 21 years old Stats: 2016: 50 Tackles, 13 TFL, 3 Sacks, 1 PD, 2 FF 2015: 54 Tackles, 14.5 TFL, 7 Sacks, 2 PD, 2 FF 2014: 26 Tackles, 5 TFL, 3.5 Sacks, 0 PD, 0 FF 2013: 28 Tackle, 3 TFL, 0 Sack, 0 PD, 0 FF, 1 INT (TD) - Hall is an under-appreciated pass rusher out of Texas A&M. He played opposite of the likely 1st Overall Pick Garrett and played in his shadow, but put up decent number. Reports were that he performed pretty well during Senior Bowl week but I expect him to test pretty average at the Combine. Hall adds depth and speed to our OLBs and could play some DE as well if needed due to his size. 5th Round (151st Overall): Western Kentucky WR Taywan Taylor 5’11 - 198 lbs. - 22 years old Stats: 2016: 98 Rec, 1730 yards, 17 TD 2015: 86 Rec, 1467 yards, 17 TD 2014: 45 Rec, 767 yards, 7 TD 2013: 24 Rec, 270 yards 0 TD - Here in the 5th round we are looking for BPA and we luck out to find Taylor has fallen after running bad at the combine. Taylor really produced at WKU and already possesses NFL quality route running ability. Has the ability to break a corner down in his routes and get free. He may not be super fast or quick twitch but he knows how to get open. Robinson will like that and it gives Marcus another solid option in our WR core. 6th Round (183rd Overall): Florida ILB Alex Anzalone 6’3 - 241 lbs. – 23 years old Stats 2016: 53 Tackles, 4 TFL, 3 Sacks, 2 PD, 0 INT, 0 FF 2015: 6 Tackles, 0 TFL, 0 Sacks, 0 PD, 0 INT, 0 FF 2014: 14 Tackles, 1 TFL, 0 Sacks, 0 PD, 0 INT, 0 FF 2013: 2 Tackles, 0 TFL, 0 Sacks, 0 PD, 0 INT, 0 FF - Here in the 6th round we go BPA and pick up the talented, but injury prone ILB out of Florida. Anzalone was always a tease with his ability at Florida, but injures knocked him out for the season in a majority of the seasons he played. People around Florida rave about his leadership skills and about the kind of player he is when healthy. At the very least, I think we find a special teams stud to replace Palmer. Depth Chart: Offense: 24 QB: Mariota, Cassel RB: Murray, Henry, Burkhead FB: Fowler WR: Matthews, Woods, Jones, Sharpe, Taylor, McBride TE: Walker, Howard, Fasano, Supernaw OL: Lewan, Spain, Jones, Kline, Conklin - Kelley, Tretola, UDFA/Vet Defense: 26 DL: Casey, Ant. Woods, Johnson, Jones, Blackson, Al Woods, Klug (PUP) OLB: Orakpo, Morgan, Dodd, Hall, Wallace ILB: Hodges, Williamson, Woodyard, Spence, Anzalone CB: Ryan, Sims, Sutton, McCourty, McCain, Reed S: Adams, Byard, Searcy, Stafford Special Teams: 3 K: Succop P: Kern LS: Brinkley KR: Taylor PR: Sutton Let me know what you think. I tried to be as balanced as I could making sure we put attention to areas that Robinson and Mularkey have already spoken about. A couple of the free agents did not have Pro highlights so I posted their college tape.
  6. I hate it. He is one of my favorite prospects and was hoping we could get him in the 3rd. Now it looks like we will have to take him in the 1st if we want him or hope to find some good trade down value and get a 2nd round pick back in the arsenal.
  7. I watched some tape on Hansen today. Could develop into a really good outside WR. Knows how to use his body but also has good enough speed to beat people over the top.
  8. Oh definitely but I meant it more as players we have not discussed much on the board about. At ILB we only really talked agout Hightower and Collins. Hodges is a good young player who was stuck on a terrible team. Put some better players around him and I think he becomes even better.
  9. So now that we are officially in the off-season I thought we could start this topic and discuss some of the free agents who might be fit here who we have not discussed much. Everyone feel free to make additions if you think a player is under the radar and could be a good fit for us. I have a couple Vikings WR Adam Thielen (RFA) - A very productive Slot WR for Minnesota. Almost had 1K yards this year, but he would fit the mold of what I believe Jrob may be looking for at WR. NE always did a great job of prying away a few RFA's over the year if the players respective teams didn't tender at a high enough level. Thielen should get the 1st round tender, but it would be an interesting tactic. 49ers ILB Gerald Hodges - Hodges came out of nowhere this year to become a very solid defender for the 49ers defense. He is a good run stopper and is not a slouch in coverage either. Only 26 years old as well. Giants NT Jonathan Hankins - Hankins had a little bit of a down year but at only 25 years old he still has a ton of ability and at 6'2 320 lbs he can really push the pocket from the NT position while also being a rock in the run game. Packers CB/NB/S/RS Micah Hyde - a jack of all trade types of player Hyde has come up with some timely and big plays for the Packers the past few years but is not quite as consistent as you would hope from a DB. Hyde is a very solid return specialist though and could play all around the defense. Is only 26 years old. Texans OLB John Simon - One of the solid depth pieces for the Texans, Simon has become a very solid pass-rusher. Now it helps when you play downs across from Clowney, Mercilus, and Watt but Simon will be a good addition to another team. 26 years old. What does everyone think about the players above? Who do you think fits the system?
  10. Are you warming up to the idea of Corey Davis?
  11. I think if we get back into the 2nd Round he is one of the guys we will be targeting. Has the production that Jrob likes and having a playmaking NB would be something we haven't had since Finny and Fuller.
  12. In each of my mock off seasons I have us drafting him in the 3rd Round. With a good combine I could see him going middle 2nd as well. He defintielt fits the mold of the kind of player Jrob would want.
  13. Isn't that the same exact story and quote from the OP?
  14. Damn watch the Bills draft him pretty early now. So look for us to get a 2nd rounder right before their pick or trade up ahead of them in the 3rd if he is still available and we haven't gone WR in the 1st round.
  15. If anything it helps them. Supposedly, Adelson being involved was going to cause some issues from a couple of the owners or the NFL because he would have his hand in the game and betting essentially. This move clears that issue.
