    SUMMARY: Height: 6-2Weight: 19840 Time: 4.45With the 172nd pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Wisconsin WR Jonathan Orr.Orr is a four-year starter, an outstanding athlete with great upside for the next level. He is quick to top speed and runs away from opponents in the open field. Orr is strong, makes the tough catch in a crowd or out-muscles defenders for the reception. He consistently comes back to the quarterback, working to make himself an available target. He is an eathanffective blocking downfield for ball carriers.

    I would have thought CB too. But this guy might be too good to pass on this late in the draft.

    If my memory serves me correct we have 7 wide recievers under contract and probably will only carry 6 on the 53 man roster. My point is there is not a roster spot for a reciever but there is a o-line spot with the retirement of Hopkins. The kid maybe great but drafting a wr without a roster spot looks like he will get cut in camp and a wasted pick.

    Orr will compete with Wade (and hopefully beat him out)

    We've kept 7 WR's before. It could be Givens, Bennett, Calico, Roby, Jones (who could be Pup'd), Williams, and maybe Orr. The other guys are probably on the way out.

    A seventh spot for WR can happen. It's usually a swing position.

    But Brandon Jones will probably be on PUP entering the season.

    So it'll go:
    Givens
    Bennett
    Calico
    Williams
    Roby
    Orr or Thomas

    I suspect Orr (if he's for real) and he can be moved to the practice squad if Jones returns.

  9. or maybe it wont be him but someone else that hasnt stepped up like calico, which would really dissapoint me being as he is from mtsu and both of my parents went there, i really want him to do well
