    This is the best class top to bottom that I have seen TN draft since 1996......The only mistake was round two but that could be because Jerry Gray is going to use Brown differently than most expect and given what I have heard about how they are planning to use Ayers, it might be that Brown is a great fit if he can do what Gray wants.

    I had The Baylor WR as the top WR in the draft and the Martin as a better prospect than most of the ones that went in round one and two.

    The kid in five is going to surprise you all the most.....he might make this draft historic.

    I think this may make Jake Locker and CJ HOF players in the end.

    Yeah the fact that ayers is going to be moving to DE/rush specialist on third down gives us some extra depth while brown plays WLB instead of moving ayers there.

    Hey Bongo. Glad you posted.

    I agree. I see the logic in all the picks. If you're picking Brown, I think he went in the right place. It's clear to me our OLBs will rush the passer, hence the org sitting pat on a lot of the DEs in this draft.

    I know Thompson is intended to be a TE, but I took away that the door is also open for him to play end if needed. Made me think a bit of the role Vrabel filled with the Pats, playing offense situationally.

    Bongo called the 2008 season before it happened, pretty accurately. I really enjoyed this draft. I think it's really the most uniform one we've had yet.

    This draft was definitely exciting, we made our team much faster and put in more high character guys. Jerry gray got me excited about Brown. Even if a lot of people criticize you bongo I feel more people enjoy your in depth analysis that you bring to the table than not. So come out of the hiding and talk some Titans with everyone again!

    I can say I was shocked by the 2nd round pick, but I will hold judgement on that one.

    The only pick I didn't like was the 4th round pick in Coty. I just think we could have got an impact player with that pick. But we selected a big time project who went way before he was suppose to.

    Is this the same bongo that came in here and told us how we were going to make the 2009 playoffs?

    I'm very excited, hopefully the guys have a great season! I think Wright & Martin will be instant contributors; we'll see what sort of opportunities Brown gets. Thompson, Mk. Martin & Sensabaugh are real wild cards.
