    Similar to how ESPN uses local beat writers for info on teams happenings, I thought it would be beneficial if some of us focused specifically on another team.

    When we have our annual goTitans mock drafts, we've gotten them very wrong. Last year we only had 2 picks right. Now thats partially because we did it too early in the year, but still, 2 out of 32 is baaad any way you slice it.

    So how this might work is:
    Since I'm very close to New York City, Im pretty much force fed Jets & Giants football. If there was anyone on goTitans that knew Giants/Jets football I feel I'd be a good person to go to.

    So what Im hoping we can all do is designate teams to everyone so that next year we can actually do a good mock draft.

    I'd hope naturally guys in say Cali would be up for covering the Niners, Chargers, and Raiders. And guys in like Florida cover either the Jags, Bucs, or Dolphins.

    Is anybody up for this?

    Last year was the worst we've done in history. It's usually much better. One year, we beat Kiper and a few of the other big dogs.

    I don't think being local is any benefit over just going to a few sites on the team and getting some feedback from the members.

    True, but being local makes it easier to get info I think.

    The Giants and Jets have their own TV channel up here, so its very easy to get news even if youre not looking for it.

    Highlights and other crap. It's not a 24-hour deal either, early early mornings are filled with infomercials of foot creams and other junk no one wants.

    Sometimes you catch those poor African children begging for money on there too.

    I have an ID on 2 Bills Drive and listen to the all sports radio station a lot.

    All indications are QB for the Bills early. They met with eight different QBs pre-draft. Joe Biscaglia, who is probably the best guy covering the Bills, is predicting Ryan Nassib in the first round.

    Also, it looks like they are going for WR in the mid rounds. They have met with a bunch of WRs but none of the big names. Chance Warmack is a guy many Bills fans want. Something in common with Titans fans I guess. They met with him but only with two other OL. Neither of them big names. They also brought in some of the bigger name OLB/Pass rusher guys and CBs.

    In the end most seem to feel QB is likely and that it will be Ryan Nassib. There is a thread on the forum getting a lot of action today which says the Bills are afraid the Jets will take Nassib if they pass on him:
