    Come this time Friday morning a good many of us will be upset because the Titans did not take a player we have our heart set on. Whether that player you have your heart set on be Howard or Adams or Any top OSU player or Williams etc

    I call to your attention how people reacted to the Taylor Lewan pick. In hindsight that pick ended up being a complete lifesaver for the Titans and a brilliant pick (even if it was done by an incompetant GM)

    https://www.gotitans.com/threads/2014-nfl-draft-pick-11-ot-taylor-lewan.91661/

    A few highlights from that thread (not trying to call people out, just posting for perspective):




    Many though did come around after a day or two. And some did like the pick:




    Some other things to keep in mind:
    • Most first round picks never make even one pro bowl -- even though they all look like future stars now
    • After the first round the success rate on picks drops off like crazy, and gets progressively worse
    This one made it though

    Nice post @The Hammer puts some real perspective on initial reactions and that the front office knows what they're doing

    I could go through the thread from the previous year and find people loving the Warmack pick :)

    LOL. I won't be upset if they pass on Williams. Just think hes maybe most likely so far.

    Actually probably Lattimore is most likely, then Williams.

    Lol if I remember correctly we still have roos and Stewart at the time we drafted Lewan? Been a minute so I don't remember 100%. Regardless I'll be mad anytime we draft an OL in the first. Worked out the last two times so what do I know hahaha
