  1. Hello all, I figure we should have a place again to post all the Draft Prospect Meetings and Visits that are set up over the next couple of months. Although we are only about 2-weeks in, we once again have no gotten much information about who we have met with at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, East-West Shrine Bowl, and the Senior Bowl. Sp far we know the following: OL: Olisaemeka Udoh - Elon (EW Shrine Game) Lanard Bonner - Arkansas State (EW Shrine Game) Ryan Pope - San Diego State (EW Shrine Game) Connor McGovern - Penn State (Combine/Pro Day) Ross Pierschbacher - Alabama (Combine) Alex Bars - Notre Dame (Combine) Erik McCoy - Texas A&M (Combine) Michael Deiter - Wisconsin (Combine/Senior Bowl/Pro Day) Chris Lindstrom - Boston College (Combine) Trey Pipkins - Sioux Falls (Combine) Cody Ford - Oklahoma (Pro Day) Beau Benzschawel - Wisconsin (Pro Day) Dave Edwards - Wisconsin (Pro Day) Micah Kapoi - Wisconsin (Pro Day) Nate Trewyn - Wisconsin-Whitewater (Pro Day) Nate Davis - Charlotte (Private Visit) Edge: Mathieu Betts - Laval (EW Shrine Game) Derick Roberson - Sam Houston St (EW Shrine Game/Private Workout/Pro Day) Jalen Jenks - Oregon (Senior Bowl) Charles Omenihu - Texas (Combine) Jachai Polite - Florida (Combine) Clelin Ferrell - Clemson (Combine) Ed Oliver - Houston (Combine)** if the Titans consider him an EDGE Montez Sweat - Mississippi State (Combine) Kyle Phillips - Tennessee (Pro Day) Ahmad Gooden - Samford (Pro Day) TJ Collier - TCU (Top 30 Visit) Maxx Crosby - Eastern Michigan (Private Workout/Pro Day) Jamal Davis II - Akron (Private Meeting) Interior DL: Daniel Wise - Kansas (EW Shrine Game) Ed Oliver - Houston (Combine)** Christian Wilkins - Clemson (Combine/Pro Day) Daylon Mack - Texas A&M (Combine) Khalen Saunders - Western Illinois (Combine) PJ Johnson - Arizona (Pro Day) Dexter Lawrence - Clemson (Pro Day) Renell Wren - Arizona State (Private Workout) Michael Dogbe - Temple (Pro Day) Miles Brown - Wofford (Private Visit) WR: Jesper Horsted - Princeton (EW Shrine Game) A.J.

  2. With his character mark and ACL, where we he fall? 2nd? 3rd? He was top 20 100% likely top 15 before. Would probably spend a 2nd after trading down in 2nd. Can't let this guy last until the 3rd. Drafting him is the same as giving up a 2nd or 3rd now to trade up in 2020 for a 1st.
  3. Haven't played around with it much yet, but it will be interesting to see how this compares to the First Pick site some of us have been using for a few years now. The interface is way better, that's for sure. https://thedraftnetwork.com/mock-draft-machine
  4. Given our lack of game breaking big play potential on offense UMass WR Andy Isabella is a name to keep an eye on in the 2019 Draft, a smaller stature guy with blinding speed mid 4.3s 40yd time, has been playing both in the slot and out wide at UMass.
  5. I'm pounding the table for us to draft Noah Fant with our first rd pick. He will be the next great pass receiving TE. I do believe he can play inline. He is big enough at 250 lbs, strong enough(20 reps) and his overall workout was sick. 4.50 40 was clearly the best among TEs and his 6.81 cone was better than most Wrs. He basically played WR at Iowa since they had no good WRs and Hockenson was the starting TE. He was rarely covered by linebackers even lining up outside and beating first rd CBS like Denzel Ward. His college statistic that really sticks out is that 24% of his catches were TDs, 26% the last 2 seasons. He can truly stretch the field something that Hockenson cannot do but he is a major weapon in the red zone. I'm pounding the table for this guy! Hakeem Butler had a monster season in the big 12 with a massive yards per catch. He is the reincarnation of Plaxico Burress who was the 8th pick in the 2000 draft. His timed speed was better than Burress. Huge at 6'5 227 he ran a 4.49 40 with a 36 inch vertical. If he runs a sub 7.00 cone a case could be made for him being the best wide out in the draft.

C Garrett Bradbury, North Carolina State The Titans have made it no secret that fixing the offensive line is a top priority this offseason. They have already started by removing poor performers from this past season and adding Roger Saffold. They continue improving the offensive line by drafting center Bradbury who will start immediately for the team. 2-50. NT Dexter Lawrence, Clemson This is about where I expect Lawrence to get drafted which is right in line with where most top nose tackles get drafted. Lawrence has a lot of talent which is why he gets 1st round talk, but his lack of pass rush ability means he at best a two down player. 2-51. WR AJ Brown, Mississippi AJ Brown is not for every team. He's not the tallest/longest (6'0) nor the fastest (4.50), but he works for a team like the Titans who like timing routes which is where Brown should excel. He's has an NFL ready body and should be able to contribute right away. 4-121. CB Joejuan Williams, Vanderbilt Williams is starting to get some buzz due to his size and fluidity so its possible a team in the 3rd round drafts him. Still, he runs a 4.6 and fits in a press role which is what he would be in in Tennessee. 5-157. EDGE Derick Roberson, Sam Houston State Tennessee has met with Roberson at least twice from what has been documented. The former Texas player had a very productive year at Sam Houston, and has the tenacity and explosiveness you like from a late round pass rusher. 6-188. TE Foster Moreau, Lousiana State Moreau is a very solid player who should easily make the roster due to his versatility. He can block and he can line up in the backfield as an H-back which what the Titans would do with him.
  7. I think its good to go back over the past season because we forget about some of the lesser know players and how their expanded roles will effect free agency and the draft. After going back over these articles I think Finch is more then adequate enough to fill that third pass rusher role and more. With that said I'm getting on board with the Bradbury pick at 19, the need for another outside-linebacker has probably dropped below the need of Defensive tackle and IOL in the Titans eyes because of Finch's upside. Sharif Finch put on a pass rushing clinic in the middle of the Titans-Packers preseason game https://www.musiccitymiracles.com/2018/8/13/17680252/sharif-finch-put-on-a-pass-rushing-clinic-in-the-middle-of-the-titans-packers-preseason-game Harold Landry (deservedly) is getting all the hype, but I couldn’t help but notice another rookie pass rusher on Thursday night. Sharif Finch’s college career at Temple started as a 218 pound freshman linebacker. Four years, a position change, and multiple knee injuries later, he was a 6’-4”, 251 pound edge rusher hoping to finally break out. His final year for the Owls saw him rack up 8.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss while finally staying off the trainer’s table. Not only were the numbers good, but the tape shows a guy that had developed an impressive array of pass rush moves. He added to that a pro day where he put up an impressive 4.65-second 40 and a 7.00-second 3-cone time, but that still wasn’t enough to get drafted. He landed in Tennessee quickly after the draft as an undrafted free agent and was given the largest signing bonus of any UDFA the Titans signed. Finch made some noise in camp early before being sidelined briefly with a — you guessed it — undisclosed injury for a few days. However, he returned in time to play, and play well, in Green Bay. Undrafted rookie Sharif Finch beginning to emerge as a playmaker for the Titans defense https://www.musiccitymiracles.com/2018/12/8/18131732/undrafted-rookie-sharif-finch-beginning-to-emerge-as-a-playmaker-for-the-titans-defense When Titans training camp opened for the 2018 season, it wasn’t hard to notice Sharif Finch. Even among Tennessee’s other outside linebackers Finch physically stood out as the tallest and longest guy in the group. However, he really got my attention when he unleashed a string of six distinct pass rush moves on former Titan Byron Bell in a single drive during the preseason. Finch would make the team’s 53-man roster a couple weeks later. Fourteen weeks later, Finch is still making plays. On Thursday night it was a strip sack of Jaguars quarterback Cody Kessler that he also recovered to create the only turnover of the night for the Titans defense. Watch No. 56 come screaming off the edge here and then have the presence of mind to rip the ball out on the way down.

  9. Jon Ledyard presents a great article about how he ranks the top edge rushers in this years Class in the different areas of what goes into selecting a pass rusher. (Production/Burst-Arc Speed/Bend-Flexibility/Rush/EcMoves/Counters/Run Defense). I suggest everyone give this a read. I definitely came away with similar thoughts and regards as to some of the questions he poses with players.
  10. Any thoughts on taking this guy in later rounds, if available? Speed, speed, speed and a good WR.

  13. 2019 Tennessee Titans Off-Season V 3.0 With Free Agency nearly upon us, I am dropping one final Mock Free Agency and Draft. Coaching Changes: Arthur Smith promoted to Offensive Coordinator (Correct from V 1.0) Todd Downing hired as Tight Ends Coach Free Agents: OLB Brian Orakpo (Retired) OLB Derrick Morgan DL/NT Bennie Logan SS/ST Brynden Trawick OG Quinton Spain SS Kenny Vacarro OL Kevin Pamphile ILB Will Compton ILB Nate Palmer TE Luke Stocker FS Kendrick Lewis QB Austin Davis RB David Fluellen (RFA) CB Tye Smith (ERFA) ILB LaTroy Lewis (ERFA) OLB Deontae Skinner WR Michael Campanaro Cuts: SS Jonathan Cyprien – Save $5.2M (Correct from V 1.0/2.0) Free Agents Re-Signed: SS Kenny Vacarro – 3 years, $18M SS/ST Bryden Trawick – 1 year, $1M ILB Ben Compton – 2 years, $4M RB David Fluellen – ERFA Tender, 1 year, $700K (Correct from V 1.0/2.0) CB Tye Smith – RFA Tender, 1 year, $2M(Correct from V 1.0/2.0) Extensions FS Kevin Byard – 5 years, $64M Free Agent Signings: EDGE Za’Darius Smith – 4 years, $60M Former Team: Baltimore Ravens – 26 Years Old HT: 6-4| WT: 274 | HAND: 10 | ARM: 32 5/8 | WING: N/R Why Smith: Well the why to this pretty easy. It is a high price to pay, but good edge defenders rarely become available and Smith fits exactly what we need at the EDGE/OLB position. With Morgan gone and Orakpo retired, this is likely our #1 need going into free agency. Smith can line up in a multitude of ways and I think Pees will be pounding the table hard to get him as he personally recruited him at Kentucky and was instrumental in getting him drafted by the Ravens. He comes in with tons of experience in the Pees schedule and slots in right at OLB, but allows us to scheme more and bring blitzes from all over the place. WR Jamison Crowder – 4 years, $32M Former Team: Washington Redskins – 25 Years Old HT: 5-9 | WT: 175 | HAND: 8 3/4 | ARM: 30 3/8 | WING: N/R Why Crowder: With the top WR Free Agents demanding crazy per year money, we decide to go the low risk/high reward route with our WR addition in Free Agency. Crowder gives us a dangerous slot WR, who can also return punts. Crowder looked like he was primed for a big 2018 after coming off 3 solid seasons to start his career, but unfortunately the change to Alex Smith and some injuries plagued him during the year. Still only 25, we gamble here on the undersized slot man hoping he can get back to the solid numbers he put up in 2016 and 2017. DL Christian Covington – 3 years, $12M Former Team: Houston Texans – 25 Years Old HT: 6-2 | WT: 310 | HAND: 10 | ARM: 33 1/4 | WING: 83 Why Covington: Possibly a bit unknown by most, Covington is a solid defensive lineman who has continued to get better each year but has battled some injuries along the way. Before an injury in 2017 he was on the way to a great season with Vrabel as his DC. I think Vrabel goes after him as we look to add a little more pressure from the DL to supplement the pass rush. NFL Draft: Going into the draft having signed free agents at EDGE, WR, and DL it becomes a little easier to read the tea leaves as to who we target. We have also re-signed our starting safety. Interior OL and getting more weapons on offense would signal to be the main need. With Sweat and Burns off the board and WR seemingly worth #19 along with TJ Hockenson off the board, we target the best interior OL in the draft in Garrett Bradbury. Some may think it is early, but without a doubt it would fill a huge need with a player that will play the next 5-10 years on our O-line. 1st Round (19th Overall): IOL Garrett Bradbury College: NC State – RS Senior Awards: 2018 Consensus All-America 2018 Dave Rimington Trophy Why Bradbury: Bradbury is without a doubt the best Center prospect in the draft and likely the best overall interior OL in the draft. I would say he is probably one of the most sure-bets in this draft in terms of becoming a good offensive lineman. Bradbury is extremely intelligent and great at setting up blocks as well as pulling. He also has the awareness to make line calls and adjustments. He stood out in a room with a lot of good potential OL at the Senior Bowl and the blew the doors off at the Combine, thus earning him a Round 1 status. After adding Smith, Crowder, and Covington, interior OL is our main need and we get the best guy here in the draft here at #19. https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/garrett-bradbury 2nd Round (51st Overall): DL Jerry Tillery College: Notre Dame – Senior Why Tillery: Over the past few years we have talked about how we have lacked any sort of pass rush aside from Casey for the past few years since Karl Klug. Tillery is a huge DL with an attitude and his pass rush pops on tape when you look at it. Although just under 300 lbs., Tillery is powerful and explosive off the ball. He can hold up in the run game as his quicks off the ball will allow him to get into opposing teams backfields very quicky. He showed up and performed very well at the Combine, but just recently had shoulder surgery this week. They say that he will be ready for training camp, but that is something to defeintiely keep an eye on. https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/jerry-tillery 3rd Round (83rd Overall): WR Terry McLaurin College: Ohio State – RS Senior Why McLaurin: We get lucky as McLaurin makes it to our 3rd Round Pick. Having drafted Davis and signed Humphries we turn out attention to adding a complementary piece that can also something a little bit different to our pass game. McLaurin does that. He is as a refined route runner coming out of the college ranks as you will see and he in explosive. McLaurin finished with the highest yards per target (16.7) in the FBS (min. 40 targets) while scoring 11 touchdowns, showing up in the games biggest moments. McLaurin was also clocked as the fastest player at Senior Bowl practices (22.1 MPH) showing that his game speed is more than applicable. He followed that up with one of the best combine performances in a stacked WR group. As another addition, he is also one of the best special teams players (adding value) beyond as Sharpe and Taylor rarely, if ever, play on those units. He could be a plug and play player at a lot of different spots for the team and him making it this far in the draft is a godsend. https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/02/04/2019-nfl-draft-player-profile-terry-mclaurin/ 4th Round (122nd Overall): OLB Justin Hollins College: Oregon – RS Senior Why Hollins: Grabbing Hollins here in the 4th may end up being a steal as many believe the Oregon pass rusher was misused during a large portion of his career. Despite that, Hollins improved each year and was highest rated edge defender in the Pac 12 according to PFF. He also went on to be Defensive MVP at the East-West Shine game. While he lacks elite flexibility to bend, he can use a variety of moves to get after the QB. Look for him and Finch to form a dynamic 2nd-unit for our pass rushing dynamos. https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/02/04/february-all-sleeper-team/2/ https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/justin-hollins 5th Round (158th Overall): TE Trevon Wesco College: West Virginia – Senior Why Wesco: Wesco is one of those guys who just does his job. Whether that is catching the football or steamrolling defenders and clearing a lane for the RB, Wesco proved he could be a value asset to an offense. While West Virginia’s offense is very different from the NFL, Wesco showed he can line up as a TE, FB, H-Back, and Slot. He is agile for a player his size and knows how to use angles in the run game. With Stocker not re-signed, the need for a blocking TE is big and having someone who can play inline with our great set of "Move" TE's helps the overall team here. https://mattwaldmanrsp.com/2019/01/28/matt-waldmans-rsp-boiler-room-no-196-te-trevon-wesco-west-virginia-underrated/ https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/02/04/february-all-sleeper-team/ 7th Round (235th Overall): Safety Malik Gant College: Marshall – RS Junior Why Gant: Gant was one of the best coverage safeties in CUSA this year. Was it against the best competition? Maybe not, but he did make a lot of plays this year with 2 INTs and 8 PBU’s. Some believe he may have declared a year too early and he could have really improved his with another year at Marshall. He did not have a very good combine at all, but when you put on the tape he shows up. We take advantage of his not-so-great combine and take him in the 7th to wrap up our draft. https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/malik-gant Training Camp Battles: TE: Smith vs. Firkser / Pruitt vs. Wesco vs. Firkser IOL: Jones vs. Kline vs. Levin vs. Kelly WR: McLaurin vs. Taylor vs. Sharpe / Jennings vs. Batson DL: Covington vs. Jones vs. Saunders OLB: Finch vs. Hollins vs. Correa CB: Sims vs. Smith vs. Kalu Roster: OFFENSE QB: Mariota – Gabbert, RB: Henry – Lewis, Fluellen WR: Davis, Crowder, McLaurin – Taylor, Sharpe, Jennings, Batson TE: Walker, Smith – Pruitt, Wesco, Firkser OL: Lewan, Jones, Bradbury, Kline, Conklin – Kelly, Levin, Stinnie, Marz DEFENSE DL: Casey, Jones, Covington –Tillery, Johnson, Kilgo OLB: Smith, Landry – Hollins, Finch, Correa ILB: Evans, Brown – Woodyard, Compton, Bates CB: Butler, Ryan, Jackson – Sims, Smith, Kalu S: Byard, Vaccaro – Cruikshank, Trawick, Gant SPECIAL TEAMS K: Succop P: Kern LS: Brinkley (KR: Jennings) (PR: Crowder)
  14. I personally would be ok with G. Bradbury. He could be a pro bowl center, definitely a day 1 starter. We move Ben Jones to guard, ship Spain. We have to do something between the tackles. We were atrocious last year. Defenses are focusing on interior penetration now. I realize that the oline doesn't help us beat Luck directly, but we've gotta do something. Taking a guard or center later in the draft decreases chances he will start before week 6. Our defense could use help on dline and another pass rusher OLB too. Defense is not gonna be in trouble if we don't get them help. Offense will. Of course, WR or a flashy new TE would work here too, but if Marcus doesn't have time to make the read, how useful will that be? Also, RARELY EVER does a WR no matter how talented, produce numbers in his first year. Ditto for linebackers.
  15. Last years 9-7 team came close to another playoff berth in what I consider the third year of this run as a perennial playoff contender. The defense improved to be a very respectable unit. While we had some difficulties on offense, we were never out of any game. We were ranked 3rd in total defense, PFR. Our passing defense was ranked 6th and the rushing defense ranked 18th. We are losing Orakpo this coming year and right now do not have a player(s) who we are sure fills his role. Still, going forward the D is going to be our strongest unit. You can get blown out before halftime with a weak D. Where the Titans excelled last year was in keeping opponents from scoring. The Titans held teams to less than three TD per game. They were the #3 team, giving up just 18.9 points per game. The two teams above the Titans both reached the playoffs, as did seven of the top ten scoring defenses. Teams have to score to win. If we can improve the front of the defense, the back end with make highlight reels. The way to do that is get heat on the QB. Sack him, hit him, hell piss on him if the refs not looking. Make every QB have a hard time when they play the Titans. We have to add an elite edge rusher. That's the simplest solution. Or we can add a dominate NT, who can push the line back into the QB. Just maintaining the los and stopping the run is not enough. The offense struggled in 2018, due to a variety of issues which don't need to be laid out. The need here is to understand we will at minimum hold serve with the return of Walker, the maturing of our young WR, the emergence of Henry and the addition of a reliable vet at WR. That's pretty much what we had to start 2018, but healthy. We probably make the playoffs with a healthy Walker and Matthews last season. This offense isn't built to be explosive, instead we control the ball and the clock. Our QB situation isn't clear, so that's even more reason to focus on defense to continue to win now. If we have to change QB in 2020, we don't want to bring in a new one who's responsible to carry the team. Instead, we should look at the Ravens. They changed QB in the middle of the season and continued to win by controlling the ball and the clock. If the Titans solidify the defense, then having to make a change at QB won't collapse the team. Get a backup QB. JRob has been making his worse mistake with these backups. They can't play like Mariota and even worse can't even replace his passing production. Useless. This plan is best for the team now and if Mariota has to be replaced. The next QB, vet or rookie will not have to win games, but instead just manage the offense. The Pittsburgh Steelers won a SB without having to rely on Ben. Buy an EDGE and draft D front in round one.
  16. Great article that talks about what really happens at the combine. It reaffirms what we already know about it: it doesn't mean shit but it means everything. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26136412/steak-booze-sense-dull-dread-here-really-happens-nfl-combine
  17. If Kyler ends up a bust at least they will still have Josh Rosen.
  18. Hi all, I know we are early in the process, but thought it would be good to have one spot for the Combine talk. Some early measurements that are quite interesting (beyond Kyler Murray). Hakeem Butler is someone I started watching more tape on and I like what I see, but it will be interesting to see how he runs. Also, drafting him would also mean Mariota really has to work on trusting his WR to win 50/50 balls and throwing it up more often. The measurements are crazy... The thing with Butler is are you getting more Megatron or more DGB?

    I like him for us too, although I feel we are young enough at the position. Check out @ProFootballTalk’s Tweet:
  20. not really surprising for this time of year to hear about prospects having private workouts, but worth noting, how teams feel about his shoulder injuries will determine if he is a top 5 pick or not. Bama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen said he liked Titans defensive line coach Nick Eason at the combine. "Cool dude, cool dude. Very relatable. I like the freedom he gives his players if they show that they can handle it, which is something we had at Alabama. He came down for my pro day, I had a private workout with him. It went really good." From The Midday 180 in Nashville. Paul Kuharsky, ESPN Staff Writer
  21. Title says it all. Wildcard Round Panthers over Cards Steelers over Ravens Colts over Bengals Lions over Cowboys Divisional Rounds Seahawks over Lions Packers over Panthers Patriots over Colts Steelers over Broncos Conference Championships Patriots over Steelers Packers over Seahawks Super bowl Packers over Patriots
  22. I was just told by a Texans source. Good hire. Will be confirmed later today.
