    I don't disagree with your rationale, I am just saying that I could see it happening. Morgan is NOT a true OLB, and Orakpo can't stay healthy. Lebeau and Horton love to blitz, and this would help. Can never have enough pass rushers in the 3-4. I personally think that they are going to go Offense in Rd1 (QB/WR) if they don't trade back.

    I think Fowler was his pick before FA began.

    Nearly spit out my intestines seeing your original mock. If we took Fowler I think I would quit.

    Serious question, I know LW is good and what have you, but DE is usually used as a block eater for the edge rushers right?

    I can see it happening as well but I think it would be a huge mistake. Rather have Mariota, Williams to cap off the line, or actually get a big weapon on offense (Cooper, White).

    Yeah I agree. I think at this point we need a game changer. A true weapon for Mett or whoever is behind center, or we just need to make the front 7 disgusting. They need to have some area that other teams have to game plan for....

    Fowler lined up a decent amount as an ILB from the few Florida games I've watched right? I'm sure Lebeau and Horton would be able to find a way to use Orakpo Morgan and Fowler in the same package. Both Morgan and Orakpo graded pretty good in coverage last year too, just put all three out on the field and blitz two of them randomly. Its not a problem to have three good pash rushers... its a premium position. Could fill an Aldon Smith esque role his first year or so. If they think hes a game changer I wouldn't be upset with the pick.

    Don't forget, they would still have Brown and Williamson in the middle too....Nasty!

    You're looking at the wrong mock. I did a mock back in Feb, before the combine and free agency, which is in the original post. Keep scrolling down and you'll find the 2nd version, which was done yesterday. I hid my original mock so people wouldn't continue to get confused.

    However, I wouldn't be surprised if we went OLB in day 2 - thanks to Orakpos injury concerns.

    Is there any chance, if there is an OLB pass rusher the Titans love and take at the top of the draft, that Morgan could switch to 3-4 DE? I know 4-3 DE is his natural position, but I'm not sure how different the position is in a 3-4 (since it's still a new scheme to us).

    I'd love to take one of these pass rushers because I think they all are going to be legit, but I can't justify taking one at #2 if he's going to play behind Orakpo and Morgan.

    Orakpo when healthy is a monster, but if they take a guy like Fowler, I have zero doubt he would beat out Morgan as a natural pass rusher.
