Earlier I had just glossed over this as the 1,000,000th Haynesworth related story on the Tennessean's page, but it's interesting to note that Wyatt's already proposing moving Jason Jones to the DE spot he played in college should a Haynesworth deal happen in the next few hours.
Kyle Wilson is on fire, as teams are excited about his CB skills and extensive return skills. If only we knew a team that could use a starting-caliber CB and a return specialist right there in the middle of the first round... hmmm. At this point we need to hope he lasts that long.
DAVID CLIMER, COLUMNISTDez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State. First, the Titans work a last-minute trade with Baltimore and move down to No. 25 while also getting the Falcons' third-round pick. Then they ignore prevailing wisdom that has them drafting a defensive end and take Bryant, a top-10 talent who has slipped this far because of character concerns. It's a definite reach, but the Titans need to think outside the box.
RULE 1: DOPE SMOKERS ARE A BARGAINBefore the draft, teams spend far too much time worrying about the “character” issue, when the real question to ask is much narrower: “Can this player make it through his four- or five-year rookie contract without missing actual games due to incarceration?” Guys with drinking problems or who throw cell phones at their girlfriends’ heads or get pulled over driving 110 with loaded unregistered pistols in their glove boxes are bad bets. Guys who just stay home and smoke weed while giggling at Manswers are not.
