    I'm getting worried. Hopefully our FO doesn't think Amano is the answer. I can see us resigning Velasco.

    Roos - Velasco - Amano - ____ - Stewart

    Then if Hutch returns he'd be the other guard. That's a crap OL. Please don't be foolish Titans.

    That would be horrible! I really hope that they do the right thing which is to add a top FA OL AND draft an OL early in the draft.

    There's a few good guards this year, Andy Levitre, Louis Vasquez, Kevin Booth... the older Brandon Moore. I prefer Andy Levitre, but any of the 4 would be nice.

    Another guy I am warming to in the draft is Khaled Holmes, the Center from USC. The film I have watched of him looks really good, and despite them not having a dominant ground game, he seems to be really solid as a potential 2nd or 3rd round choice.

    3rd round talent is about what we have now. No rookie 3rd round pick will improve our line. Need a day-1 starter whos already NFL caliber.

    I wish we had 3rd rnd talent, but I don't think many people would give up a 3rd rnd pick for Hutchinson or Amano at this stage.

    I think Holmes is more of a late 3rd to 4th rnd type of talent. He moves pretty well, but I've seen him get pushed around by some of the stronger DTs.

    Eugene Amano triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3.685 million to $3.935 million

    Great to see we landed the big fish in LeVitre. We are still going to be active here, no doubt. I think the Titans either go after a swing G/T like Geoff Schwartz from MIN, or target a G in the 2nd or 3rd round. I think the chances of drafting Warmack at #10 are pretty slim.
