Any scout who cares about a QB's vertical jump should get punched in the ear, IMHO.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I honestly had no idea that the Canadian Football League plays an 18 game schedule already. I'm not really sure how the physicality of the NFL game compares to the CFL, but I'm still not on board with the NFL extending the season. I'd love to hear some thoughts on that from out Canadian brethren in the comments.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Terry McCormick has a piece behind the pay wall at discussing just how gun-shy the Titans might be with Cam Newton on the heels of the Vince Young era. Cam doesn't seem to have the work ethic/leadership concerns that doomed Vince, but he does have more questions about his decision making after the pay-for-play scandal and the incidents that lead to him being dismissed 'electing to transfer' from Florida. What ever it takes for us to not select Cam I'm all in for, mostly because I want a polished pocket passer who knows the position and the game on a higher level than Cam had to learn it in the one year he was a BCS starter.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Well well, look who lead the league in yards after contact by nearly every measure PFF has: LeGarrette Blount.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 TSU linebacker Sidney Tarver wowed scouts yesterday at the school's pro day. Tarver measured out as a physical freak who goes 6'3", 236 lbs. with a  32-inch vertical, 23 reps of 225, a huge wingspan and a 4.65 40. TSU is getting a nice little reputation for producing a good defensive prospect every couple of years, and Tarver, if his film backs up his measurables, sure sounds like someone who could add some much-needed depth to our LBs corps, no?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The guys at CHFF have taken a lot of shots over the years for their dubious 'quality' stats, but this piece plays into a debate that's been raging in the comments here lately: Just how reliable is the Wonderlic?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Paul K takes a look at what positions teams in the AFC South can pass on in the draft. The CBs takes the day, though every position on the team could use a top-flight player. Paul K says he nearly picked the O-line, based more so on Munchak's statements about how he's happy with the talent we have there than their play last year. I sincerely hope there's some legitimate competition in the middle of the line in camp this year, and nobody walks in thinking they have their spot locked-up.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This piece profiles Jonathan Akerman, a 25 year old longshot prospect who's trying to make it into the NFL. Akerman has already worked out with the Titans, and has contract offer overseas.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The next home of the Jaguars keeps getting closer and closer to actually breaking ground...
