    Let's look at it from a more positive light--if we believe that Fairley and Dalton are the two players the Titans want most, it's very possible to come out of this draft with both of them. By the end of Thursday night, the Titans could have a beast of a DT and a new franchise QB. That would be pretty sweet.

    Drafting Dalton doesn't give us a franchise QB though. It gives us a hopeful player that probably wont pan out, but might.

    He's one of those guys, and I don't think we're in a position to take that type of gamble right now.

    Doesn't sound that crazy to me. No way we take Problem Child at #8 but if he's the guy our coaches want then I don't see anything wrong with trading into the late 1st to make sure we get him. It's better to make sure we get our guy rather to to just stand pat and hope that guy manages to fall to us.

    It's the Fairley pick that I'm just not as sold on. No doubt dude had an amazing season but I'm not sure that he'll be as dominant at this level.

    I'd rather take Amukamara or Quinn if still on the board.

    Plus wasn't La Canfora the guy who had this "insider info" about us getting AH back.

    If the Titans want Dalton, they must be ready to go West Coast.

    Why not? The report says that the Titans consider Dalton to be "an elite prospect" with low bust potential.

    It's very possible that he could end up being the best QB in this class. You yourself love Christian Ponder and Ricky Stanzi. Is it so hard to believe that a different supposed mid-round QB could end up being a star?

    True, TTF.

    I just can't see Dalton being much different than guys like Colt Brennan.

    Yeah I don't really see a superstar either, but I am just trying to have faith in the judgement of the Titans staff.
