    This should excite Rolltide but looking at what we need and what is available this year in the draft we should consider drafting a bunch of Bama guys.

    OLB DeMeco Ryans 6-1, 236, rated the #3 or #4 OLB
    FS Roman Harper 6-0, 195, rated around the #4 FS.
    SS Charlie Peprah 5-11, 205 rated around the #10 SS
    MLB Fred Roach 6-2, 250, rated around the #6 MLB
    DE Mark Anderson 6-4, 255

    Considering that Bama had a better defense last year than the Titans (I'm not kidding and would trade our Ss and MLB and one OLB for this group today) especially at the postions represented here we could upgrade by drafting all these guys.

    Seriously I can see where a number of these players could be on the Titans next year. Using the GBN ratings either Ryans or Sims from Florida State is the #3 OLB behind Greenway and Hawk. Unless we trade out of the #3 spot we probally don't have a shot at him. Fred Roach is the #92 rated player on their board and Harper is #116. Charlie Peprah is rated at #205. We could even consider Brodie Croyle at #179 as a backup QB.

    The strategy is simple. We take Vince Young with the first pick and the best OLB available in the 2nd round with #39. At 101 we take our MLB in Roach. At 132 we take Harper. At 163 we take Croyle. At 199 or 222 we take Peprah. We get the players we need at decent value and we make Rolltide happy.:lol:

    Soxcat, I hear the FO is looking for a new lead man.
    Perhaps you should put in an application. :brow:

    In all seriousness, looking up the write ups I could find on Bama LBs and Ss I noticed that all of them get high praise for being instinctive players. We could use some of those on the defensive side of the ball.

    No doubt that Bama's D kicked arse last year.

    Croyle is going in the third round at worst.

    Rolllltide.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We actually could trade down some, draft ryans, use the extra picks to get a croyle and a couple of those bama guys.

    Soxcat has to be impressed after watching the bama players dominate in the senior bowl. Anderson toasted dbrick and ryans and roach were running sideline to sideline sticking people.

    I was more impressed with Croyle and Co. after the Cotton Bowl.
