Titans Select OT Isaiah Wilson, Round 1, 29th Overall

Recommended Posts

We already had an elite run blocking left side of the line and looks like will soon be elite at it on the right side as well, but on cheap contracts. Do think they're going to need to move up for a corner tomorrow. Wonder if those stories about shopping Corey might have something to them.

Look, Kelly isn't a starting caliber RT, and we needed someone who could take over his spot very soon. 

We also need a CB, and we will almost assuredly take one in the 2nd. But there are several really good CBs still on the board. Many of us made this point over the last few weeks - there's a dropoff at OT from 1st to 2nd round, but there will be good CBs available in the 2nd. 

We will spend the next 20 hours calling teams, preparing to trade up if we need to in order to get a good CB. Diggs, Jaylon Johnson, and Kristian Fulton are all still available, and many had them down as 1st round grades. I still won't be shocked if we land one of those three.

From watching his highlight tape he looks slow but powerful. But at the same time good at moving on to the 2nd level.

 

Idk how I feel about him

Sooooo the Titans drafted a tackle that moves like a guard. Just terrific and typical Titans

I'd hope not but it's very possible. This offense doesn't really need 3 starting WRs in Davis, Brown and Humphries.

I just dont get drafting a project tackle in the 1st round when you already gave Kelly 8m to start and you were a game from the SB, especially with 2-3 good CBs there. Ill wait and see but it just doesnt feel like a good pick.

 

Same here. I really was banking on a corner but someone mentioned the corner class is deep in this draft. Personally i'd try and get a couple corners.

 

Will never forget in 2017 when Jax ended up bringing in Bouye in FA then drafting Ramsey i knew right then they were gonna be a killer pass D

 

I'd love to bolster the corner depth and upgrade the pass rush after all Mahomes is what ultimately stood in our way to Super Bowl

I said this before the draft started: The media is mistaken on Wilson and are too low on him. 

 

You trust some amateur PFF "analyst" more than Jon Fucking Robinson?

Look. I love Wilson as prospect. Just not in round 1. I hope I'm wrong. It just feels like a long-term move based on his upside and not on his current ability. 

 

I feel like we can get right back to the AFC Championship. We beat SB champs and favorites last year and were up on the SB winners. 

 

The one thing I can say about Wilson is that -- even though he appears to have holes in pass pro -- those holes appeared against some of the best front 7's in college ball. 

 

I've been screaming for Jamal Adams and Ramsey's of the world for so long, my voice is getting hoarse.

I'd have preferred that too but the answer is pretty obvious as well.... $$$

 

It's really not though when you look at the numbers.  Conklin's deal is 30/3.  They are paying Kelly 12/2 and the rookie will cost 2+ a year.

 

So pay 10 for Conklin and keep your first round pick, or pay 8-9 for Kelly and the rookie.

That's only because what they're doing is different than what everyone else is doing. Just because all of the other teams are going all in with their passing game doesn't necessarily mean that it's the best way to win in today's NFL. They deserve tons of credit for bucking the modern trend.

 

Defenses are getting smaller and faster every year. Our defense is kind of trending that way so far too. 

 

But our offense can buck the trend and be like a herd of elephants running through buzzing flies.

This offseason seems like one big reach after another.  I normally try to stay positive, but I cannot see where we have improved.  It just seems like we are making reactionary decisions.

 

So we lose Conklin, Casey, Johnson, Sharpe, Ryan, etc.  And we pay Tannehill more money than any other QB in FA...then fill holes with Beasley, Crawford and Sambrillo?  It seems every other team is getting better and we are reaching at every position to cover for overpaying Tannehill.  This team is not better today than it was last year.  No one is excited about any move that was made this offseason.  At best we try to justify it.
