    He hits pretty damn hard. But I do agree. There are other options at that point.

    Watch his partner in crime's game tape..Shawn Williams gets his nose in everybody's business when he's on the field. I'd rather have Shawn than Rambo...I'd rather have Phillip Thomas over both of them though...With RayRay Armstrong in the 7th as insurance.

    I'm starting to agree. I've really started watching some of his videos... he goes invisible for 80% of the time.

    i would much rather pick someone who may be a bit smaller but played against better competition anyways...someone that we could possibly trade down and pick up too

    Free Agency

    Jared Cook - Franchise tag
    Bironos
    Velasco
    Lutui
    McRath
    Zac Diles
    Wynn

    5 signings,starting with the most expensive.

    Louis Vasquez - RG 6'5 335lbs. I don't think we will get Levitre, and to be honest Vasquez is just as good. If we could focus on getting him in, then we could head to the draft looking for a LG.
    5year 22m.

    Patrick Chung SS - 5'11 212lbs - Probably not resigning in New England. Has had a injury plagued career so far, but nothing of note, which could cut short his career.I expect Byrd and Goldson to stay where they are. Chung could be the top Safety available.
    4year 18m

    Osi Umenyioura - DE 6'3 255lbs. Osi needs a change of scenery.He had 6 sacks last season, which is decent considering he wasn't starting. I don't think he'd start with us which might be an issue
    but he's certainly get playing time.
    He is 31 now, and will be looking for a decent final payday.
    2year/10m.
    Rashad Mendenhall - RB 5'10 225lbs. Has health and attitude concerns, but he would be a very nice compliment to CJ. I think he's gonna come cheap as well. It wou
    be nice to get an RB done before the draft.
    3year/12m

    Braylon Edwards - WR 6'3 214lbs. You probably won't like this much but whatever. I can see us adding a vet WR in free agency. We could do with another big outside threat. Get him in early working with Locker.
    1year/2.5m


    Draft
    I'm going to give us the propsosed comp picks that are being predicted.

    Star falls. The Titans trade their 10th and 3rd round, 2014 6th to Arizona for their 7th.

    1. Star Lotulelei 6'4 DT 325lbs Utah State
    I think Star will fall to this range, after the combine most mocks will start raising the values of Ansah, Mingo etc and they will end up going in the top 10, then you have to factor in the teams that are gonna move up for a QB. Star is the perfect player for us, he will help contain the run and take on double teams, allowing Osi,Morgan, Wimbley and Maponga to get after the QB.

    2. Manti Te'o MLB 6'2 255lbs Notre Dame
    Another draft, another Linebacker steal for the Titans in the second round. Cbs has him ranked at 37 right now, I can for sure see him falling out of the 1st round. It appears Ogletree has jumped him in the rankings, and Minter is fast on his heals. We could be tempted to go OG here but Te'o is just to much value here. I think our front seven would be incredible. Ayers-Te'o-Brown is an excellent LB core, with McCarthy for back-up. We could do with a vet Linebacker for back-up if we dont sign WW again.

    3.(c) Brian Winters LG 6'4 310lbs Kent State
    Our future LG. We have already spoken to him at the senior bowl, so there has to be some interest from us. I was very impressed at the Senior bowl practices. His very aggressive and competitive. There seems to be alot of RG in the mid rounds. With Vasquez signing, Winters could be pencilled in at LG, with him having to compete with Amano for the LG spot. I'd resign Lutui and cut Matthews and Hutchison(Retire).

    4. Shamarko Thomas SS 5'9 217lbs Syracuse
    Although we have snagged Chung in FA, we still need another SS. Thomas's height will be the only reason he lasts till the 4th round. I love his game, hits like a freight train, and is lighting fast, expecting a 4.4 at the combine from him.Bit of a steal here.

    5. Micah Hyde CB 6'1 196lbs Iowa
    Big corner who plays well in coverage. Best player on a bad defense. Got a little drunk one night, so what, it's college for gods sake. Chance to turn into a FS. We have to believe Sensabaugh is scheduled to start with Verner in the nickel. We need a mid round Cb prospect. I like Hyde alot and he has a chance to be a solid NFL player.

    5(c). Stansly Maponga DE 6'2 265lbs TCU
    Squatty, powerful edge rusher. Would be a good addition to Osi, Morgan and Wimbley. Had a somewhat disappointing Junior season with 4 sacks and 6.5 TFL, has more to come. A bit of a gamble.

    7 Graham Pocic C 6'5 310lbs Illinois
    Another lineman, good prospect, year starter.Back-up centre and project.

    7.(c) Colby Cameron QB 6'2 210lbs Louisiana Tech
    Smaller touch quarterback, Very accurate. Camp competition

    Fair enough. Just trying to produce a sensible FA list.
    Osi>Soloman
    Edwards>Hawkins
    Mendenhall>Harper/Ringer

    They have questions marks, but I think they can all be had for reasonable deals.

    Osi is 31, his time here will be irrelevant. He's always been overrated.

    Edwards, got cut by Seattle, looked OK with NYJ. Might be able to deal with him. Talks too much.

    Mendenhall has injury concerns and complains alot. Don't want, and this is coming from a Illinois fan.

    Osi had statisically a better year than Wimbley and Wimbley played every down. I think he can still play at a reasonably high level. We could do with an extra 6 sacks. I think if the price is right, it;s a good deal.

    Mendenhall will be cheap, I dont really care much for him. The injuries are scary. I would prefer Jacobs, or any other vet RB thats 220lbs +.
