MtD Titans Recap

What happened in the MtD Live Draft?


So yesterday we took Ra'Shede Wattman, Carlos Hyde and Zach Mettenberger. Today, we had two fourth round picks and a seventh round pick. With our first fourth round pick we selected Devin Street, Wide Reciever from Pittsburgh. Here's what CBS Sports had to say about him.

STRENGTHS: Smooth athlete with natural body control and foot quickness to create some space and work the middle of the field. Shows toughness before and after the catch, high-pointing and coming down with contested receptions and also fighting for every yard after the grab. Soft hands and usually catches everything thrown his way, staying focused from snap to whistle.WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal top-end speed. Looks to finish, but lack of breakaway speed shows as a ballcarrier, struggling to elude defenders or create after the catch.

With our second 4th round pick we satisfied our need for a MLB that can fit the run with Jordan Zumwalt, from UCLA.

STRENGTHS: Tall with adequate arm length and growth potential. Room to continue to get stronger. Plays fast downhill with good first step quickness and instincts to help compensate for suspect change of direction skills and range. High energy competitor and plays with an intense demeanor. Motor is always revving. Violent striker and hits through his target, looking to punish. Very physical and strong. Fights for body positioning with active hands and attacks the line of scrimmage with a head of steam. Trusts what he sees and uses sharp angles and decisive movements. Versatile experience, dropping into coverage and blitzing. Thirty career starts, playing mostly an inside linebacker role in UCLA's 3-4 scheme.WEAKNESSES: Lanky build and lacks ideal bulk for the position and needs to spend more time in the weight room. Average athleticism with body tightness, takes him a few moments to change directions. Needs to stay balanced in his drops and doesn't look comfortable in space. Needs to stay low on tackle attempts to be a more consistent finisher. Overaggressive and will struggle to recover. Needs to improve his fundamentals to better shed at the point of attack and play controlled to square up his target. Needs to play smart and some of his hits will draw flags in the NFL. Durability questions from past injuries and also concern for his ability to hold up due to his fierce playing style.--Dane Brugler (2/12/14)

We then took kicker Anthony Fera in the 7th round. I think in real life Travis Coons from Washington will be our kicker, although he might just be an UDFA instead. Deaconbrodie, loved this draft so much, and hopes the Titans do it in real life.

Quickly I want to give a big thanks to Noles for being the commissioner. That is a lot of work and he handled it well. I also want to thank TrueBlue87 for being the timer, and timing every single pick, and DanRoc for taking over for Noles when Noles had to leave.
