    If we get Levitre,Canty and Wilson in free Agency that would be a hell of a draft. In the 5th pick up a SS and/or CB.

    If he lasts til the 3rd round, I'm becoming an NFL Scout. The guy was a little nervous about injuring his knee again this year and still put up respectable numbers. Throw the guy a jumpball and he'll win it 9/10 times. He was a little inconsistent with his hands this year but was pretty solid his first two years

    From the times I watched UT, Hunter can be a monster. I liked him like I liked Kelly Washington, but there is no way he is there when we draft for a WR.

    I don't see us even drafting a WR this year. So Hunter in a Titans uniform is out the equation.

    There was a WR similar to Jason Hunter that would have been great for us that we passed on last year, and his first name is Alshon.

    Jeffrey doesn't have Hunter's speed.

    The term 'underrated' is overrated.

    Hunter is a little more polished than Hill was last year but not quite the same speed (unless he surprises at the combine). So I think he is solid 2nd round value but again, with the number of WRs in that 1st and 2nd round value range someone is going to slip into the 3rd round. Depending on who that is we might be wise to jump on them.

    I don't really see much reason our draft can't be that good. Even if we miss out on Cooper maybe we take Warford instead. I bet one of those guys is there. Hunter being there is going to based on the work outs IMO. Some WRs will jump in the draft rankings if they run real well like Hill last year. Some likewise will fall.

    I also figured we would sign a SS in FA and either keep Marks or sign another DT. So the picks in 5 and 7 (and we probably get at least one more for comp) would be another late round CB, maybe another S and DT.

    "If he had better hands and didn't tear his ACL."

    Yeah, and if frogs had wings they wouldn't bump their asses when they hopped.

    I feel like he is kind of a poor man's Randy Moss. He is freakishly long, he can really go up to get a ball, and he is fast (not Moss fast, though). He also lacks bulks and isn't very physical and has terrible body language on the field. I feel like he quit on the Vols last year.

    I feel like the different between him and Moss is that he can't catch and he always seems to take big hits.
