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

Recommended Posts

I just can't stand seeing BWW, Tye Smith, Butler, etc etc etc getting torched year after year. We control the ball, seem to be winning then boom one play and our defense is right back on the field. You keep doing that, and you pass rush goes to shit. Then all of a sudden, everybody is pointing to pass rush so you pay a Clowney and Wake and Urban and draft Simmons. But you still can't cover.

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.

 

except it's not really $ for $. The money for Wilson was going to be used either way, just at a different position if we'd drafted someone else.

I mentioned it more in regards to Swift, but I’ve seen a good bit of Georgia games the last few years. Wilson can absolutely annihilate his man. But what I like the most is he l put in a ton of effort to get better each year. Wilson absolutely sucked when he first got to GA comparatively speaking. Slow and didn’t use his power. He improved a ton. He is a better pass blocker than Conklin. Personally, having seen them both play, Wilson will possibly be better in the NFL than Andrew Thomas. Thomas is a finished product. Wilson still has some untapped potential.

Chaisson got one of his few sacks against him. Literally little leagued him.

I just can't get excited about this.  I think pass rush is the biggest need, even if they sign Clowney.  I feel like this pick is treading water from last year.

Im not digging in on you, as I didn’t want him either, but if we are treading water from how our line performed down the stretch then that would be huge.
 

Like I said in the draft thread, if he can keep our line humming along and we sign Clowney then overall it’s a huge upgrade to the team versus signing Conklin. Who would you honestly rather have if you had your choice, Clowney and Wilson or Conklin and Espenesa? Personally I’m taking the former in a heartbeat.

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.  

 

Exactly. A year and a half ago we were benching our RB, hoping our QB would make a big leap forward. Now we're basing our entire team on a new QB and that RB we benched cause he had a "come to Jesus" talk with Eddie George. Corners still ain't worth a fuck. Dline is not better. Simmons and Casey cancel each other out (at this point.)

 

I'm not hopeful for more than a wildcard. Colts take the division and we're fighting for the WC.

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. 

I am fairly sure that if had a offensive player weign in we would have 2 be one of the heaviest. Even more so when you just go with skill guys.

From reading about him, I was starting to wonder if he might still be there in round two.  But what you are saying just keeps popping out.  He young and really just starting to learn the position, but he has played his way into the first round of the NFL in two years.  I would be overjoyed if I heard you guys giving more praise to Kieth Carter.  A lot is going to depend on him and how well he develops Wilson.

People who hated this pick REALLY seem to hate it. I bet they felt like this guy when Goodell announced it.

 

Wilson seems to be a perfect complement for Lewan on the other side of the OL. Both of them are bruisers that will bring the pain. :biggrin:

Ever heard of: Clowney, Jadeveon?

Oh the guy we haven't signed yet? Besides we need OLB help behind Beasley and Landry even if we do land Clowney. God forbid we don't we are screwed. Our pass rush in the playoffs was awful.
