Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Peace Sells, But Who's Riding The Lightning Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young is in town for the Titans' off-season work outs, and here he catches up with the NFL Network about how eager he is to step in and fill a big chunk of the leadership void left buy guys like Alge, KVB and Mawae.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This week's Friday Jam is a bit unconventional, but a hell of a lot of fun: a good internet buddy of mine (from back when I commented on TBL all day long) spencer096 now writes for MajorLeagueJerk.com, and yesterday he recapped the greatest of all musical debates: Metallica vs. Megadeath.  It's the battle of the ages that's the metalhead version of a Myers-Brigg exam.  The post is succinct and littered with youtube videos of key moments in the evolution of each band, so anyone whose interested should have a good time.  (As much as it pains me to say it, he's right that Marty Friedman > Kirk Hammet at their peaks. Still, Hammet's consistency wins the war.)

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K, after pointing out that the Titans and Colts botched the process last year, talks with a slew of different NFL talent evaluators about how to scout a return man. There's nothing here that will blow your mind, and the most interesting tidbit to me is that many of the best kick returners of all-time have been first or second round draft picks, while the best punt returners are usually low round or underrated.

Follow us through the jump for the dumbest mock draft on the interwebs...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Looks like Tra Battle and Gibril Wilson are joining the legion of back-up safeties visiting the Titans' facility.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Shutdown Corner has a new mock draft, and he has us taking Michigan's Brandon Graham. Across the internets the assumption that we'll take a DE is becoming accepted across the board. Of course we die-hards know that is the first piece of evidence that we won't take a DE.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Looks like somebody at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has been peeking over Posse's shoulder when it comes to Tim Tebow... this mock draft also has us taking Graham.  See the entry above for commentary.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Former Titan Samari Rolle is no longer an option for the Ravens, according to head coach John Harbaugh.  He hasn't officially announced his retirement, but Rolle didn't play a snap last year after having back and neck surgeries.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Arrowhead Pride's mock draft resulted in us taking Texas S Earl Thomas with an eye on moving him to CB.  I have no idea if Thomas could make that transition, but it would be more likely to happen if we're sticking with the short coverage zones we've seen so much of the last few years.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 And here's my nominee for the dumbest mock draft on the interwebs: Stampede Blue's community mock has Jimmy Clausen going no.1, Russell Okung no.2 and Gerald McCoy no.6.  It's simply stunning how non-sensical those picks are.  I mean I get bucking the trend sometimes, but Jimmy Clausen as the 1st overall pick?  Jim Schwartz passing on what may be a one in a decade talent at the position that's key to his scheme?

 

Have a great weekend!
