First off, if I gave the impression that I don't think Griffin is a good football player, I apologize. Those were not my intentions. I am sure he is worhty of the #19 pick, just not the #19 pick for the Tennessee Titans.
I will give you that the whole picture isn't in place yet, but that doesn't make that pick make any more since. (especially not after our 2nd round pick) I have watched this team week in and week out since they came to Tennessee in 1997 as the Tennessee Oilers. I think I have a pretty good feel for the needs of the roster. Griffin was not what we needed at #19.
How in the world do we take a guy in the 2nd round whose best college season was 581 yards? He only had 9 TDs in his college career. 9!! He averaged 2.25 TDs per season. Everything I read about Chris Henry leading up to the draft included these two very scary words, "workout warrior." Production is king. Chris Henry=no production.
I am one of the biggest Titans fans you will find. I am by no means writing this team off or giving up on them. I do have to be honest though. I can't sit here and act like I am pleased with the events of the day. We are not any better at 7:34 p.m than we were at 7:34 a.m. That is the truth.
