Let Titans pass on WR in the 1st

The Titans lost Drew Bennett this off-season and didn’t get a deal done with WR Kevin Curtis, so now the talk of their weak receiving corps will heat up even more. I hope the organization doesn’t buy into that talk and uses its #1 pick on a wideout because I think they still have some solid players at the position. Their situation this year reminds be a little of 2004, when people thought they were crazy rolling with youngsters Drew Bennett, Justin McCareins, and Tyrone Calico (14 TDs between then) along with #1 guy Derrick Mason.

The Titans signed Justin Gage this past weekend, which doesn’t have me doing handstands, but I hope it’s enough to prevent them from using their 1st pick on a big physical receiver such as LSU’s Dwayne Bowe.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
