    Because McCaffrey is Danny Woodhead 2.0.....Williams sucks, but this thread doesn't surprise me.

    Lol we have 2 solid running backs already. If we waste a 1st on a position where most teams get undrafted starting talent at regularly then we are idiotic

    Two solid RBs that are good receivers out of the backfield

    Yes, but as I mentioned earlier, Murray is 29 and he's got a lot of mileage on those tires; even more so than most 29-year-old backs (he had a ton of carries in Big-D). He spent a lot of last season nursing injuries! I fear his production may go downhill fast and let's face it, Henry is not a shifty back. McCaffrey would be an excellent compliment to him.

    Having said that, I agree with you that talent can be had for a lot lower cost than on say, pick #18 (if CM is even there at that point); however, that talent is not Christian McCaffrey! Also, I don't think the Titans are light years away from contention and I think CM would be a helpful addition to the team and potentially huge weapon in the arsenal. Another gigantic plus for CM, he's an extremely safe pick: you know he'll buy into what the Titans are selling, work extremely hard and management will never have to worry about the guy off the field.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I like CM as a player, but he just does not really fit what we need in the 1st round. He could be a solid slot guy, but that would be limiting his potential severely. If we just wanted a good slot WR, there's plenty of players later in the draft that could fill that role. And if we want a good backup RB to compliment Henry in a year or two, there's also plenty of solid RB's in this draft. There's just no point to us taking him.

    As for Mike Williams, he wasn't asked to do much in college as far as route tree, but that doesn't mean he can't do it or can't learn. Plenty of guys have profiled as only having a few routes and just being big men who can jump coming out of college, and have gone on to excel in the league. What he does have is an unteachable knack for making impressive catches in coverage. Dez Bryant has made a career of that (and for what it's worth, they have the exact same 40 time, and are nearly the same size). You can't tell me for a moment that you wouldn't want a guy with Dez's abilities on the Titans.

    Now personally, I'd rather have OJ Howard over Williams, but for now that's not the question.

    Considering absolute need- Mccaffrey as a WR is an absolute joke compared to Williams, and I'm not high on Williams.
