The Draft, 2012

With apologies to D. Reese, who I think had some well-thought out suggestions, I'm going to differ. I agree with the areas of need he identified, but I think they should be addressed in reverse order, or at least prioritizecd differently. The team's biggest needs, in my estimation are the interior of the offensive line, wide receiver, and cornerback. That's not to say that it's set in stone or anything, depending on how the draft shakes out in front of them and how free agency goes. ROUND ONE (#20) - CORDY GLENN (OG, Georgia). Dude is 6'5", 330 lbs., and has the versatility to play either guard or tackle, though he's a natural guard. A mauler in the run game. I've not been overly impressed with Amano or Harris, and while I despise him throwing his teammates under the bus, CJ was speaking the truth by basically saying that he's been expected to run through holes that are an inch wide all season. This helps the run game and the passing game as much as any skill position pick would. Of course, if David DeCastro is there at #20 (highly doubtful), they should literally fall all over themselves turning their card in to draft him. It would even be worth them considering trading up a few spots to get him. ROUND TWO (#52) - DWIGHT JONES (WR, North Carolina). Stands 6'4", weighs 220 and (allegedly) runs a 4.53. Good hands and leaping ability, good but inconsistent downfield blocker. Would be a very nice compliment to Britt, and would give Titans 2 very big guys at WR. Ruben Randle from LSU would also be a consideration here...he's almost as tall and almost as fast as Jones. Don't care for Sanu from Rutgers...he's not fast, and the last WR from Rutgers we drafted hasn't exactly been a resounding success. ROUND THREE (#84) - TRUMAINE JOHNSON (CB, Montana). Small school guy (Mariani would love it), but not a small guy. He's 6'2", 212, 4.5 speed, and physical as hell,(arguably)moreso than any CB in this draft other than Kirkpatrick from Alabama. Give me a tough 6'2" CB with 4.5 speed over a 5'9" guy with 4.3 speed ANY DAY. Coryell Judie from Texas A&M might be a good alternative here, as well. CAVEAT: This assumes the Titans re-signing Finnegan...if that doesn't happen, then CB should probably be addressed in Round 2, with a guy like Janoris Jenkins or Chase Minnifield. In subsequent rounds, I'd like to see DE (maybe Cordarro Law from Southern Miss), S (Kenny Tate from Maryland), and another interior lineman, be it guard or center. Also intrigued by the idea of Terrence Gannaway from Baylor, and converting him from RB to a FB. God knows I love Ahmad Hall, but, as they say "Father Time has an undefeated record." I'm sure there will be many different opinions...this is just mine.
