Watching Russell Wilson have the immediate success he's having in Seattle got me thinking about the way teams in the NFL draft. And how it's so flawed. Everyone has bought into all the measurables, and it seems like there is total disregard for actual production in college. It's particularly frustrating to me as a titan fan because we took a guy like Jake Locker, nearly 30 picks ahead of Colin Kaepernick who was a stat stuffer in college, and now Kaepernick looks light years ahead of Locker and has already won as many games as him. There's so many examples of this in our organization such as, we essentially used a 2nd rounder to draft Cook who is the quintessential "prospect" potential based player when you've got proven TE's that actually produced in college like a Dennis Pitta who go in the mid 4th round and turn out to be one of the best TE's in the AFC. We consistently pass up players in positions we need who were some of the best players in the nation at the college level to draft guys because of their 40 time, height, or vertical. Just doesn't make sense to me. Alfred Morris is the career leading rusher at FAU, and he doesn't get picked til the 6th round and now he's a top 5 rusher in the NFL. Chris Rainey, never rushed for 1000 yards in any season in college, was taken a round ahead of him! Just once I'd like to see the Titans go into the draft with this philosophy. Instead of picking guys like Damian Williams, Lavelle Hawkins, Chris Henry, Paul Williams, Taylor Thompson, or Jared Cook maybe we could actually end up with a Colin Kaepernick, James Lauranitis, Major Wright, Dennis Pitta, Aaron Hernandez, or Danny Woodhead. There are so many examples of college studs who get knocked for some over thought scientific flaw they have and they fall draft day and sure enough one of the better managements in the NFL, like a New England, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Green Bay, or New York, snatches them up and wouldn't you know it they produce at the NFL level as well.
