Tennessee_titans_30x21 We all know the Titans have a fetish for drafting small school prospects who they can coach up, so Jimmy points us towards a Shutdown Corner post about the top 10 small-school prospects in Thursday's draft. One guy to watch for on this list is Murray State's Austen Lane, who is like a small school JPP. He could definitely be a target should someone like Haden slip to our spot in round one.  Speaking of which....

Tennessee_titans_30x21 had a mock draft where the picks were made by the site's divisional bloggers (Paul K representing the AFC South), and the shocker here was that we passed on Joe Haden to draft Michigan's Brandon Graham. If that is how it actually plays out I'll be fuming. I know we need a DE, but Haden has every indication of being the real deal at CB, and we haven't signed anyone to even compete for a spot across from Cortland who hasn't washed out in multiple franchises already.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Even Jim Wyatt knows that the Titans would be hard pressed to pass on Haden if he makes it to pick 16. I disagree that he's probably the only non-defensive lineman that would make them hesitate (Rolando, Earl Thomas, Sergio Kindle and Dez Bryant could possibly fall and would warrant major consideration, especially if the reason they fall is an early run on the DE position), but he's probably the one they'd want the most. 

Follow us through the jump for more on Albert, remembering McNair and miracles....

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Shanahan says that the Redskins have not talked about trading Albert Haynesworth to anyone at any time. Well that must close the book on that because NFL coaches are always straight-up when it comes to embarrassing details. I mean I'm waiting for the day that an NFL coach acts like he doesn't even know what a trade is as is confused and frightened by the explanation.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The late, great Steve McNair was honored at the  4th annual Celebrity Basketball game for the Diane Greer Walker Foundation. McNair had regularly served as a coach for the event, and in his absence his sons and several Titans stepped in to help. The players on the court all wore no. 9 jerseys as an homage to our boy.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I think we found Superhorn's real identity:
But Hall knows two players he’d like to see add: receiver Jordan Shipley and defensive end/linebacker Sergio Kindle. It’s understandable. Both played at Texas. So did Hall and fellow Titans Vince Young, Bo Scaife and Michael Griffin.

"If we can steal Jordan Shipley in the second or third round, that would be great for me,’’ Hall said.
So is Superhorn really the Sarge?  Have you ever seen them in the same place together? These are just questions, and hey, there are miracles around us everyday. Though, in all fairness, more things qualify as a miracle the dumber you are. ICP is proof of that.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Yes, I'm still pissed that a few years back our coaching staff put Mookie Johnson on the practice squad so that hacks like Chris Henry and Donnie Nickey could stay on the active roster.  I mean, who would you rather have today?
