    Very interesting. In response to hearing rumors about the Titans possibly being interested in a WR in the 1st I decided to do some research. Outside of Blackmon the only other prospect I would be interested in in the first is Kendall Wright.

    If the report is true, sounds like a probowl bound WR. I know there are concerns about his numbers being inflated but his combine and pro day performances support his production. He doesnt look like a big risk, in fact, he looks like a stud. The article compares him to Steve Smith and it doesnt look far off.

    We could use him. Personally I think he is more talented and valueable than any of our other recievers with a chance to be more special than Britt.

    I love Wright he would be my third rated WR after Blackmon and Floyd. Steve Smith is the perfect comparison I don't know about more special than Britt but that depends on how Kenny heals from a major injury but still special yes and a huge problem for defense with him Kenny, Nate, Cook, Damian, and Lavelle.

    Also has some return value which means later to Mariani and him or Campbell take over.

    Right, return value as well although I dont think we go that route unless absolutely necassary. We will have much invested in him if we take him @ 20. Too much to risk on kick returns I think.

    I made the statement about Britt because of injury concerns. Without injuries I think Britt is a top 10 WR. I made the comparison because I could easily see him becoming a top 10 WR as well.

    I like him over Floyd because of character concerns moreso with Floyd.

    Im glad there was someone with an eye for WR out there. I thought I was going to get bashed for this post.

    I like Wright and if he's the highest ranked player on the board then I'd be happy with the pick.

    The only negative is, due to his height, I kinda see him as a slot receiver. I'd rather have a big receiver like Hill and move Washington to the slot, were he should actually be starting.

    Britt---Washington---Hill > Britt---Wright---Washington

    In all seriousness though, I don't think there's any doubt Wright is the second best WR in this draft behind Blackmon.

    HOWEVER, I remember a report last year saying the Titans were trying to decide between taking Fairley or Dalton at 8, so I'll believe it when I see it.

    So maybe the draft looks like this:

    1. Wright WR
    2. Worthy/Reyes/Brandon Thompson/Mike Martin DT
    3. Blake/Molk C
    4. Jake Bequette/Other DE
    5. CB/Trade for Samuel
    6. Duke Ihenacho SS
    7. OLB


    But I think we could still get a good Wr in the 4th and possibly get a good DE in the first

    The problem with Hill is see, hes not good. There are tons of starting sub 6' WR's. Steve Smith and Desean Jackson instantly come to mind.
