Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you have some golf skills (or no shame) and a little extra time, there are still team spots available for the Tennessee Titans 12th Annual Charity Golf Classic to be held June 21st.  Of course, a foursome will run you $4,000, but you'll get the chance to mingle with a lot of interesting folks including current and former players, cheeleaders and front office-types.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW recaps Fisher's comments from the combine press conference, which mainly dwell on wantingto keep many of our major free agents and acknowledging that the AFC South is one of the toughest divisions year-in and year-out in the NFL.  However, it's Pat Kirwin who pulls the most insightful bit from Fisher's comments, which may tip the hand towards a shift in defensive strategy considering the scheme we've run for several years:

Fisher also talked about the rising trend in the league to build pressure defenses that also make the receiver releases tough to achieve. As Fisher said, "If you sit in zone coverages, these quarterbacks will pick you apart."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 One of my biggest dissapointments from the combine was the hamstring injury to Boise State CB Kyle Wilson, which prohibited him from fully working out. Still, he measured in at a better-than-expected 5'10", 190 lbs, then threw up the 25 reps on the bench press.  He's been Mike Mayock's fastest riser coming out of the Senior Bowl, and the quick, scrappy DB brings size and expereience (4 year starter for the contantly overachieving Broncos). Opinions on him vary, but now even Mel Kiper says the kid could be a first rounder.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Here's video from breaking down the perfromance of CBs and Safties yesterday.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Here's more video of the top preformers at the DT and DE position.  basically, if you have time, just spend the day catching up on how everyone did by scouuring's recaps.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Bucky Brooks talks about the deep and talented DT class this year, where a lot of folks expect there to be value at each stage in the draft.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Now that the Scouting Combine is over, the next big draft occasions are the variuos Pro Days which will stretch across the country over the next month.  Here's the schedule as it stands today.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Fanhouse realigns their Mock Draft in light of the combine performances, and they have us taking Carlos Dunlap at the 16th spot.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Gregg Doyel of CBSsportline thinks that the Colts make a perfect home for Tim Tebow, laregly for two reasons: apparently it's the prevailing opinion that if the rapture comes the Colts will be the first sports team taken, and secondly, they don't need a quarteback who's any good.  Could Tebow be Jim Sorgi good?  I guess that much is possible.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This space is to thank all of you beautiful people who read MCM every day and help keep us motivated to bring more to the table and (hopefully) elevate the conversation for Titans fans every where.  That being said, we made another list of the best sports blogs on the interwebs
