Tennessee_titans_30x21 NFL teams across the league are preparing for their own Final Four: the final four weeks before the NFL Draft on April 25-26.  As that day draws near, ESPN (Insider subscription required) has gone through each franchisee' draft history to find their best overall class.  For the Titans/Oilers franchise the winner was the 1983 class, which brought in HOFer Bruce Matthews and All-Pro Keith Bostic.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Yahoo! says that while Kerry Collins lost 20 lbs. on his own during last year's off-season, his plan this year is to commit 100% to the Titans weight training regimen in the hopes of tacking on around 5 lbs. of muscle.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The New York Times has a draft preview for the Titans, and the Fan's Take comes from a MCM's pater familias, Jimmy!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 30 days after the Cutler/Broncos saga began, things have so failed to improve that many observers in the Denver media are speculating that Cutler could be traded by the time draft day rolls around.  I hope the Titans are getting the house loaded into the catapult and aiming it west because they would be fools not to make a serious run at making this happen.  It's still a long shot, to be sure. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans will be hosting speedy U. of Cincinnati 4-3 defensive end/3-4 linebacker Conner Barwin for a workout, further cementing the view that the organization is content to take the best player at almost any position when they come up for the 30th pick of the draft.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW thinks the Titans will use there bounty of comp. picks to swing a few draft day trades; even though compensatory picks can't be traded our original picks can.  Given the Titans' past behavior there will probably be some movement in rounds 3-5 thanks to the flexiblity these comp picks give us.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Here's a story on IMG, a massive multi-sport training complex in Florida that some may find interesting.  One of the players mentioned as training there this off-season is Titans MLB Ryan Fowler.
