    I'd prefer Jones (or Moore if available), but I'd be happy with Mingo as well. I think it's almost a foregone conclusion one of those three will be a Brown at this point.

    What do these two things have to do with one another? Hunter is tall, but not particularly physical.

    I agree, they almost have to go in that direction.

    You could be right, but I think they really need a dominating physical presence like Warmack.

    I may be in the minority on this one, but if I'm running the Titans I'd be doing everything I could to make sure my team won't be giving up 471 points again.

    There's no way I use a that high of a 1st round pick on a guard.

    Dont like the picks for NE.

    I understand the secondary concerns but imo we need to bring in a real DC or change our DB coach before we start using more high picks. Agreed with going with a Wr but thats a terrible choice given whos still available. Patton, woods, wheaton, etc would have been better options. robinson would be a bigger risk than d rogers

    If Jones fell to the Jets, Rex would be ecstatic.

    If the Titans (smartly) tender Velesco, and draft Warmack they can replace Harris easily as well, and have a dominant OL and keep their D on the sidelines a heck of a lot more.

    Locker wont' have to throw because they'll be manhandling people like the Jets in the late 2000s.

    But I do see your point as well.

    Honestly, considering Warmack is going to TEnn in every mock in February it means there's almost no chance it occurs in real life. lol

    There are some simple rules that should be followed by all teams on draft day. Here's one of them: never draft an OG in the top 10. Period.

    I disagree. I'd probably agree with top 5 though. Thing is, I"m not sure an OT is more valuable than an OG any more. The Saints don't think so, I know that.

    Yah, you are right that mocks almost never hit that accurately this early. I think Warmack makes a ton of sense though. Teams don't normally take OGs that high, but they also don't normally have that much invested in a RB behind the league's worst interior OL.

    The Titans need D help, but they have some good players there and they can help themselves out a lot by running the ball better. Just make sure you find a S and a little depth throughout to help the D later.

    While I'd certainly agree G's are easy to find and shouldn't be a priority, there's no real reason not to draft one in the top 10 if you're confident he'll be one of the 10 best players in the draft class, either. Especially with the way the rookie deals are now.

    That's about where I'm at. Almost every evaluator has had Warmack as their highest graded player, without accounting for value. His position does hurt his value some, but 10 seems reasonable for a player like that.

    You just don't win or lose games based on your guard. If your team is solid and you can legitimately draft BPA, no problem. He'll help your team. But a team like Tennessee? If you draft an OG top 10, you deserve the future top 10 picks you're gonna earn by not finding players at premium positions who will make far more impact than your complimentary pieces. Let's put it this way... the Titans are gonna stink with or without Warmack if they don't upgrade at QB/WR/DL/CB. 10th pick in the draft? Good place to start, I'd say.

    New Orleans might not think so, but where did they draft their guards?
