Did you know that until last week it was illegal for NFL teams to run video messages encouraging crowds to get make more noise? How in the heck did I miss that... or better yet, how in the heck did the league ever think that was a good idea? Has any league (golf and tennis don't count) ever discouraged excitement from it's fans?
Mocking The Draft held their SB Nation Writer's Mock Draft, and with the 16th selection Jimmy chose Boise State stand-out Kyle Wilson. Now that's a pick I can whole-heartedly endorse, especially given his experience as a returner on-top of his tremendous potential as a CB. Wilson is a slight-but-rangy type guy who would fit our scheme well and could learn a lot from Cortland.

PFW conducts another mock draft, and this one has us taking Sergio Kindle. However, it also has Florida CB Joe Haden slipping to the spot right after our pick, and if that happens I'll be pulling my hair out on draft day. I seriously doubt that Haden slips that far, but if he does there should be no way he gets past us.
Speaking of PFW and the draft, they have an interview with possible future-Titan Derrick Morgan. Judging by the way this exchange reads, I'd say the kid likes his football with a little bit of an old school bent:
PFW: What are your thoughts on commissioner Goodell mentioning the possibility of banning three-point stances to prevent concussions? Have you heard that?
DM: Are you serious? What does three-point stances have to do with concussions?
PFW: Well, I think the idea is that it would limit the head-first collisions.
DM: I mean that's football. You can't play football like that. If that's the case, I guess I'll be playing linebacker. We all will (laughs).
Gil Brandt lists the top 100 undrafted players of all-time for nfl.com, and legendary Oiler Warren Moon cracks the top 5. He's the only Titan/Oiler to make the cut, but definitely check-oput this sprawling list for the history of the game if nothing else.
One guy who's definitely getting drafted is Sam Bradford, who threw for scouts for the first time since his season-ending shoulder surgery back in October.
