    Yeah I'm thinking 10-6 or 9-7 if Locker plays above average. If Locker lights it up than maybe I can see 12-4, but not expecting that to happen. We were a long way from being good last year, but don't get confused. With decent QB play the year before and a much weaker line up we went 9-7 Munch's first year. I don't think its too far fetched to say this team could be better than that team. Last year was just a set back with a much tougher schedule.

    As for the Colt's, I'm fully expecting them to regress this year. Much tougher schedule and I personally believe in sophomore slumps for qb's. Not to mention the ChuckStrong momentum has worn off. Not too worried about them right now.

    Agreed. Coach Saban does not require his cb's to back pedal. Therefore he would be further behind other cb's.

    I still want Star at #10 and then wofford in the second really bad. Star is an absolute beast!

    I believe that Star is slightly overrated. He's a big dude, and has dominated before (see USC game), but other than that hasn't done much. He's had terrible games and has been invisible for many games/snaps. His motor isn't that high, and appears to be lazy at times. I think Sheldon Richardson & Shariff Floyd are better prospects, not really for our team though - both are 3-techs. Not saying he's bad or anything like that, but i've seen him as a Top-5 pick. He's more of a #8-15 guy in my eyes. Relies on the bull rush, which in the NFL when all the OL are as big and strong, won't work everytime. Relies on power in everything really, needs to get the finesse side down as well. Again, i'm not saying he's bad... his motor is a question and he'll need to expand his technique. There's no denying his great size: 6'3 320 frame.

    He will be a run stopper and require a double team all the time. He could be our version of a better albert haynesworth!

    He very well could be. Albert had the same issues as Star did, and that worked just fine... until he got paid.

    Gotta go after him. We've already helped the O-Line, D-Line, RB, and S positions in FA. Let him compete with McCourty and Verner and move a guy in the nickel. Milliner looks good enough against the run to run some interesting packages where he's basically a LB.

    Brown and Milliner could give us some great coverage on TE's and slot guys. Both are fast enough to run with most and could give us a great man package with Pollard roaming over top.

    I have the same feeling. They got real "Lucky" in a bunch of games last season. They easily could have done worse.

    My hopes are the Titans go at least 9-7 or better. Realistically, 9-7 is probably where they'll land...and either barely miss a wild card spot or find a way to get in. I don't (or hope to God) foresee another crap season like we just had...not with all the free agents and upgrading they've done. As far as Milliner goes, he looks good but will most likely be gone by #10 IMO. What I'm looking for is a damn playmaker...be it on Def or Off...a game changer.
