    Dion will be a first rounder. He resembles the body of Aldon Smith and look how much Aldon jumped up the board after his combine. I could see Dion as a Top-15.

    We need DEs, just not first rounders.. unless we believe he'll be a legit playmaker (Bjoern Werner). Morgan had a good year, Wimbley sucked.. but he's getting $ and I believe will get better. We need depth, but that can be found in the 3rd+ rounds and free agency.

    1st Round: Playmaking DT, Te'o, Matt Elam, or OG/C.

    Also, don't sleep on the Titans and Dee Milliner. I love Dee, I think he has legit #1 elite CB potential. He's got the size, not sure how sold our FO is on Verner, he'll be in a contract year next year... and it better suited for NB role. McCourty + Milliner + Verner would be solid, but we do have bigger needs than CB. BUT we said that last year when we took Kendall.

    Wimbly was questionable against the run but had just as many QB hurries as Morgan. They didnt do bad at all. The area we have no pressure is in the middle. Star would change this front 7. Te'o might bring some fire to it. We have to get someone in the secondary to be a true leader with some fire... Verner was quoted saying the secondary lacks confidence and aggressiveness...

    Teo provides leadership, but so does McCarthy. I don't see Teo being available, but I doubt the Titans take him. McCarthy has been injury prone.. but with all our other needs I see us taking a risk on a healthy year from him.

    Star would change the front 7, but again.. unlikely he's available. We have young guys in Casey and Martin. Martin looked darn good but got limited snaps. We need to see Casey & Martin more and KLUG, not Marks.

    I'm sold on Matt Elam. He has confidence and aggressive play that would help out the entire secondary. Trade back like 5-10 picks, and take Elam. Use the addt'l picks on fixing the OL and potentially another DT. I would love for the Titans to go HARD after Henry Melton & Andy Levitre, then draft like:

    1st (trade back): Matt Elam
    2nd: OG/C/CB/DE
    3rd: OG/C/CB/DE <-- from 1st round trd back (potentially 2nd)
    3rd: OG/C/CB/DE

    I'd rather us trade back than go Milliner, but I wouldn't be too upset if they took him.

    We should be getting an additional third as a comp pick too. Hopefully.

    I doubt it. Finny didn't have a great year, got a big ole contract... but brining and Hutch/Wimbley might change that.
