    I think the coaching staff must be pretty high on the young WR's we added last year based on how this draft has unfolded

    Exactly. Just watch the Titans game last year. The team looked like a bunch of old tired men last year. This year they are going to be all over the field.

    I love the positions they filled but I'm clueless on the WR part. If this was the first time Ireland did this, I'd chalk it up to "he has a plan." The thing is, he did this a few years ago when there were a lot of tight ends coming off the board and we drafted none. Binns and Matthews better step it up or they'll be bracketing Wallace all day left, right, and center.

The front office has done a hell of a job this off-season to put us in a position to succeed. Since Philbin was hired we have been moving in the right direction. No reason to stop trusting them now. We filled our needs as J. Ireland said we would... We can't go wide receiver, tight end, and running back every round.
    Allen wasn't really passed up on. He was off the board when Miami picked in rd 3.

    Ireland did just fine. Can't wait for the rookie camp.

    I like the draft picks. I'm more bummed about losing Reggie Bush than addressing the remaining holes. I just don't see how we replaced his play-making / scoring abilities. Wallace in, Bush out = same TD production. Having both of those guys would have been great. My point is we still need more playmakers - more guys who can put points on the board. We are showing a lot of belief in Miller. I hope the FO is right!

    I hope not. They all sucked eggs.

    Sheet if 7-9 and signing players to one yr contracts creating more holes next yr and not adding more weapons on offense a good thing then Ireland is the best.

    Look this draft was primarily about defense. We now are a young fast extremely deep defense. A lot of the players drafted offer versatility, Dion Jordan can play OLB or DE, Jamar Taylor can play CB and rush the passer extremely well, even Davis can play outside or nickel. Going into offseason we were extremely thin at LB, now we have a lot of depth and versatility, plus they all excel at rushing the passer. CB, we are now 5 deep. DE just added an element we didn't have last year in jordan rushing the passer as a stand up rusher or with his hand in the dirt. We are going to be scary and be able to confuse teams because you never are going to know who is rushing.

    As for offense, I really didn't see the need to draft a receiver, even after the Bess trade. TBH I thought that Matthews would give us the same production as Bess would this year, and Matthews is younger cheaper and not limited to purely slot duties. People are upset we didn't draft a receiver which is understandable, however there really weren't that many good receivers available. O-line, D-line, and defensive back were the strengths of this draft. WR was arguably the weakest position after QB. We definitely needed a TE, Keller, Sims, Egnew will probably all make the team and Clay will be our H-back. I expect Winston, Clabo, or another veteran tackle to be added in the next few days to sure up the offensive line. The veteran probably would have been better than any tackle in this draft outside the first 2 rounds.

    Very good draft.....everything is riding on Tanny's development though..............If he does not take the next step then none of this matters.......I think he will though.....
