    Nashville, TN - Since the move to Tennessee, the Titans organization has been lead by only two men. Jeff Fischer, followed by Mike Munchak. With Bud Adams dissatisfaction of the team's performance under Munchak, the Titans are bringing in a new guy to lead their franchise. For the purpose of this dynasty, he will be handsome, charming, and smart. Let's be honest that's not too different from reality.​
    Marty Webb has been brought in as the acting Head Coach, and General Manager. When asked why he was given the credit card and the grocery list to keep up with, Webb stated, "No one is going to be able to find a guy that I like, better than me, amirite?!?!"​
    *This will be similarly constructed as Peench's Raider's Dynasty, because let's all face it, that was excellent.
    House Rules :
    1. Only one player trade allowed per year (offseason and in season)
    2. May never possess more than 2 1st round picks
    3. No use of any scouting guides
    4. No scouting beyond a letter grade
    5. Only allowed to draft 1 storyline player per draft
    6. No trading of players for salary cap purposes. Players will be cut instead.
    7. No poaching of players off FA during the preseason/season. If a player is there that probably shouldn’t be, I will leave him to be signed by a CPU team.
    8. All games will be simmed
    9. No purchase of the scouting package​

    I'll be starting with the 75-man preseason roster, so to my understanding, that means that there won't be certain guys with boosts like Flacco post-SB, and more.

    Coach Specs :
    Offensive Playbook : New Orleans/Sean Payton
    Defensive Playbook : New York Jets/Rex Ryan
    Offensive Scheme : Balanced Offense
    Defensive Scheme : Zone Blitz 3-4

    Pre-Season Analysis :

    Mostly, we are a really young team. Matt Hasselback will lead this squad unless his performance dips enough to the point we hand it over to Locker. Not sure if he is our guy this early on. Chris Johnson will have to prove himself to stay within uniform. We need consistency out of the running game if this playbook is going to work in our favor. Building on Jared Cook Jr to be the X-factor in the passing game. Without a great ROLB edge rusher, RE Kamerion Wimbley will be plugged in to show off his athleticism. Our Secondary will have to step up big time, which they look capable of, if the young LB core we have will perform the the level they're capable.

    First Quarter Review (Season 1)


    Week 1 : Patriots 36, Titans 59
    Holy shit! Matt Hasselback goes nuts in this game, going 25/42, 345 yards, 5 TDs and an interception. His counterpart Tom Brady had a good day, with 382 through the air and 4 TDs 0 INTs. Chris Johnson only managed 42 yards on 19 carries(2.2 YPA,) while Javon Ringer went for 63 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown. Jared Cook caught two TDs and 8 total catches for 69 yards. Beast mode LOLB Patrick Bailey forced 3 fumbles, while only one was recovered by the defense, this Duke Blue Devil showed a lot so far. Will Weatherspoon anchored the LB core with 7 tackles. Akeem Ayeres and Derrick Morgan had 1 sack each.

    Week 2 : Titans 31, Chargers 28
    Another solid outing for Hasselback, as he out-duels Philip Rivers with 258 yards in the air, 2 TDs and 0 picks. But the game was won, on the offensive side of the ball, with Chris Johnson and Javon Ringer gaining a total 126 yards on 32 carries. While it's not remarkable, CJ's TD late in the fourth led to the win. Rookie WR Kendall Wright had another big game, with a touchdown, averaging one per game so far in this young season. Britt had 73 yards and was Matt's main target. CB Tommie Campbell had the Titan's two interceptions, and Will Witherspoon with the only team's sack. While we're not getting the sack numbers I'd hoped so far, we're outplaying teams offensively.

    Week 3 : Lions 22, Titans 26
    With only two touchdowns, Rob Bironas earned his keep and helped the Titans beat the Lions in Week 3. Hasselback had 332 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT; for those counting at home, that's 935 yards passing, 9 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in his first three games. Neither running attack really took off, as Detroit's Jahvid Best averaged 2.8 YPC(20 for 56) and the Titan's Chris Johnson averaged 2.5 YPC(21 for 53.) Johnson also had his first fumble of the season, a forgetful effort. Kendall Wright with another touchdown grab, he and Britt both had 7 catches. CJ pitched in on the passing game, as he had 99 yards receiving on 5 catches. DE/ROLB Kamerion Wimbley's coming out party was today, as he had 10 tackles and 2 sacks.

    Week 4 : Titans 17, Texans 35
    Oops! There goes the winning streak, of course on our division opening game. Hasselback and Schaub had comparable numbers, but the difference her was the Texans rush attack. Up to this point, we really hadn't been tested on the ground, and guess what, we failed. Arian Foster had 110 yards on 9 carries and a TD, Ben Tate had 80 yards on 17 attempts and a TD. Kenny Britt was shut down, and along with a fumble, had 23 yards on 3 catches. Rookie WR Kendall Wright the lone bright spot on offense, as he nabs his fourth touchdown on the back of a 4 catch, 64 yard performance. Young CB Tommie Campbell forced a fumble that was recovered by the Texans, Weatherspoon racks up 10 tackles, and Kamerion Wimbley has another two sacks, bringing his total to 4 on the season.

    DT Jurrell Casey dislocated his hip, out 3 weeks.

    Contract Negotiations:
    We get FS Michael Griffin for 5 years/31mil, he's the foundation of our defense, really glad to have gotten him in despite the cost. Also got Rob Bironas likely to the end of his career, 3 years/8.7mil. Seems that this year I can make or break my team with everyone who wants to renegotiate. CB Jason McCourty will be with us for another 4 years, for 6.4 million. Cheap for the #1, who'll likely stay there for a while.

    Draft Storylines:

    Xmas Time : FSU DT Jakari Christmas is a very powerful nose tackle that has the ability to dominate the trenches.
    Working on the McClaine Gang : Georgia's Deangelo McClaine has been called, by more than one scout, a "Jermichael Finley" clone
    Action Jackson : Georgia Tech LE Cameron Jackson is a Von Miller clone who could go just as high as Miller did in the draft.
    A Certain Age : Tucker Marshall is a 28-year old who play MiLB for many years, he has returned to school and is now the QB for LSU
    Super Cooper : Louisville CB Jalen Cooper is a fierce man-to-man player who is great at making QBs think a receiver is open before swooping in for the pick.
    Down and Out : It's a terrible turn of events for Georgia Tech's LE Cameron Jackson. He tore his ACL and MCL, and is now out for the season.
    Hunger for Unga : Utah G Isaac Unga is a beast who can flatten smaller defensive linemen who try to overpower him.

    Second Quarter Review (Season 1)
    You win some, you lose some.


    Week 5 : Titans 40, Vikings 14
    Going into this game, the Vikings were undefeated, and the Titans were coming off their first loss of the season. Hasselback had 358 yards and three touchdowns, to Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Damian Williams. Ringer/Johnson went over 100 on the ground, but Ringer had a fumble. The defense was the star of this game. Holding Adrian Peterson to 59 yards on the ground, and picking off Christian Ponder SIX times! All by different players, CB Ryan Mouton, LB Will Witherspoon, CB Jason McCourty, FS Michael Griffin, LB Akeem Ayers and SS Jordan Babineaux. Kamerion Wimbley also had a sack on the day.

    Week 6 : Steelers 33, Titans 10
    Christian Ponder must have rubbed off on Tennessee, as Hasselback threw for 5 interceptions in this game. Not pretty at all. Chris Johnson had a touchdown, but was held to under 60 yards on the ground, meanwhile Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer had 2 touchdowns and over 100 yards rushing. Heath Miller also torched the Titan defense for 119 yards on 6 catches and a touchdown. The two bright spots on defense were Kamerion Wimbley with 14 tackles and 2 sacks, and Michael Griffin running around like a crazy person racking up 11 tackles.

    Week 7 : Titans 28, Bills 27
    A great day for Buffalo’s RB Fred Jackson(22 att, 156 yards and 1 TD) was wasted as Matt Hasselback and company led the Titans to another win. He went for three touchdowns and no interceptions, Kendall Wright, Chris Johnson and Jared Cook Jr. being the benefactors. CBs Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner had picks, Wimbley with another sack, and Witherspoon with another 12 tackle effort. The Bills sacked Hasselback 7 times today, the first time all season that the offensive line hasn’t protected him consistently. Ringer had another fumble, it’s starting to become a concern a bit.

    Week 8 : Colts 26, Titans 20
    Two touchdowns in the fourth allow the Colts to send the Titans into an early 0-2 hole within the division. HB Chris Johnson had a fumble, and another underwhelming effort with 53 yards on the day. Colts RBs Mewelde Moore and Donald Brown torched the weak Titans rush defense, for over 140 yards and a touchdown. WR Kenny Britt had 120 yards on 9 catches and a touchdown, with HB Chris Johnson scrambling for 79 yards on a HB screen and a TD. CB Ryan Mouton had another interception, and four Titans had sacks, RE/LB Kamerion Wimbley, MLB Colin McCarthy, LB Akeem Ayers and MLB Will Witherspoon.

    DT Jurrell Casey is back from his dislocated hip, but starting LT Michael Roos will be missing another 5 weeks after suffering Broken Ribs.

    Contract Negotiations:
    Starting guard Leroy Harris will be pinned down for four more years in Tennessee. Aging vet, but leader, Will Witherspoon also going to spend 3 more years here, for 9.9m per year. He’s the only Linebacker I’ve got, so his price tag seems high, but he’ll hopefully lead the way for a young group of guys. Jared Cook Jr. will also get 4.1m per year for four more seasons. HB Javon Ringer we’ve got for 2 more seasons after this, to see if he can keep improving as a Titans run threat.

    We were unable to resign FB Quinn Johnson, which isn’t a major concern. There’s got to be better Fullbacks out there. CB Ryan Mouton will also test free agency, which is unfortunate. I low-balled him, that’s my fault. Backup Center Kevin Matthews will also not be returning.

    Draft Storylines:

    Jiminy Christmas! – It was a perfect week for Florida State DT Jakari Christmas. He dominated Georgia, wreaking havoc in their backfield time and again.

    Halfway Point Analysis (Season 1)
    Division Standings :
    Colts : 5-2(2-0)
    Titans: 5-3(0-2)
    Jaguars: 4-3(1-1)
    Texans: 3-4(1-1)

    Team Assessment:
    I’ve pleasantly surprised at this point in the season. We’ve scored the most points within the division, but we’ve also given up the most points within the division. Most of that is due to us having an extra game, but since I just realized that, I’m not going to backspace. Our Linebacking core is really strong, led by Witherspoon with 60 tackles and an INT. Kamerion Wimbley, playing ‘Out of Position’ at ROLB, has 9 sacks so far this season. CBs Tommie Campbell, Jason McCourty and Ryan Mouton all have two picks.

    Matt Hasselback has not only had a fine season up to this point himself, but has helped the receiving core really perform. Kenny Britt has 52 catches for 559 yards and three touchdowns, Kendall Wright with 29 catches for 436 yards, and SIX touchdowns. Chris Johnson continues to be a big target in the passing game, with four receiving touchdowns on 21 catches and 369 yards.

    Our center offensive line, LG/C/RG, have played remarkably, but LT Michael Roos(7 sacks allowed) and RT David Stewart(5 sacks allowed) seem to be struggling. They’ll improve a little bit, likely, but I need to keep an eye out for some youth.

    Pro Bowl Update:
    QB Matt Hasselback, LT Michael Roos, RT David Stewart and RE Kamerion Wimbley are all up for the Pro Bowl at this point.

    Draft Needs:
    At this point, it’s tough to tell. With the youth on this team, and the progression they’ll make at season’s end, it’ll be a little easier to narrow it down. Tentatively I’d suggest : OT, TE, LOLB, 3-4 D-linemen, QB.

    Around the League:
    The New Orleans Saints are 7-0, and the class of the league to this point. In the AFC, The Titans lead with a 5-3 record, followed by the Colts(5-2,) and a tie at 4-3 between the : Ravens, Steelers, Bengals, Jaguars, Bills and Broncos. Matt Forte and Adrian Peterson lead the league in rushing, 785 and 783 yards respectively. Matt Sanchez has 2213 yards passing, 20 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions. Butt Fumble who? Browns MLB D’Qwell Jackson and Oakland CB Shawntae Spencer lead the league with 5 interceptions each. Colts Linebackers Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney lead the league in sacks, with 12 and 11 respectively. That team is all over the quarterback!

    Third Quarter Review (Season 1)
    Division Race gets Tighter, and not in a good way


    Week 9: Bears 33, Titans 16
    Despite picking off Jay Cutler 3 times, the Titans offense would struggle all game and keep them from getting that much closer to the 8 win mark. Hasselback had only 177 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT, and HB Chris Johnson would underwhelm, oh yet again. At this point, I’m practically done with him, despite what he brings in the passing game. Chicago’s Matt Forte had 137 yards on 20 carries, he was the man all day long. LBers Colin McCarthy and Kamerion Wimbley had one sack each during the game, while SS Jordan Babineaux, LB Will Witherspoon and CB Alterraun Verner all had picks.

    Week 10: Titans 24, Dolphins 6
    In an attempt at redemption, the Titan’s defense clinched down on the Dolphins attack all game long, making this a breeze of a game heading into the bye week. WR Kendall Wright had two touchdowns on 115 yards receiving. Dolphin QB David Garrard was held to 123 yards passing and 2 interceptions. RE/LB Kamerion Wimbley continues a great season with 11 tackles and 3 sacks. Witherspoon and Ayers also adding on a sack each. SS Jordan Babineaux and CB Jason McCourty had one interception each.

    Week 11: Bye

    Week 12: Titans 16, Jaguars 27
    Despite Hasselback outshining his counterpart Chad Henne, the complete lack of a rushing game, along with a CJ2k fumble, allowed the Jaguars to bully the Titans, sending Tennessee to (0-3) within the division. MJD had 102 yards on 17 carries, and Rashad Jennings ballhawked for two touchdowns and another 60 yards on the ground. Witherspoon led the defensive attack, and Jurrell Casey, Akeem Ayers and Kamerion Wimbley each had a sack.

    Michael Roos has 1 more week before he’s recovered from a Broken Rib.

    Contract Negotiations:
    No news regarding Contract Negotiations.

    Draft Storylines:
    Top of His Game: Utah G Isaac Unga is an All-American who had a great season, which has many scouts very high on him.
    CB Talent: Louisville CB Jalen Cooper has been named cornerback of the year, and he is expected to be a top-10 pick.
    Bad Call: An ill-advised pass by LSU QB Tucker Marshall cost his team the game against Auburn. It also dashed the team’s national championship hopes.

    Fourth Quarter Review (Season 1)
    Call Answered


    Week 13: Texans 27, Titans 33
    Ten WR Darius Reynaud’s Punt return for a TD was the difference in this game. Statistically, both teams had nearly the exact same passing and rushing yardage, with Javon Ringer leading the rush attack with 99 yards on 9 carries. Kamerion Wimbley was constantly in the backfield, racking up two sacks and a few more tackles for loss. The game was the first division win all season for the Titans.

    Week 14: Titans 37, Colts 18
    Matt Hasselback had 282 yards, with 3 touchdowns and an interception, more importantly, only was sacked once against the ruthless Robert Mathis/Dwight Freeney combo. Andrew Luck had under 200 yards passing, and besides Donald Brown on the ground(13 for 111 yards,) the Colts were hard pressed to gain first downs. WR Kenny Britt had 2 touchdowns on a 72 yard effort. DT Jurrell Casey got his second sack of the season, but the overall effort of the defense can be seen by the steady tackle numbers from top to bottom.

    Week 15: Jets 10, Titans 24
    The previously hot Mark Sanchez had a rough day, with 168 yards for a touchdown and two interceptions. His counterpart, Matt Hasselback had a solid day, but nothing incredible. Both rushing attacks had equal numbers, with Chris Johnson’s touchdown being the difference, as the Jets were held scoreless on the ground. Hasselback hit 9 different receivers on the day. LBers Kamerion Wimbley, Colin McCarthy and DT Jurrell Casey all had a sack, and Tommie Campbell had 2 more interceptions. He’s shown to be quite the ballhawk, and with this only his second season, we look to hold onto him for a longggg time.

    Week 16: Titans 41, Packers 34
    Hasselback outduels Aaron Rodgers, as he goes for 333 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. Pair that with a brilliant effort from Chris Johnson, who had 112 yards and a TD on the ground, and another 59 yards receiving and 2 TDs through the air. GB’s Cedric Benson had 95 yards and two touchdowns, but paired with Greg Jennings 121 yards, 11 catches and 2 touchdowns, wasn’t enough for the win. LB Akeem Ayers had the lone sack, but both McCourty and Will Witherspoon had 10+ tackles. For the first time since the first quarter of the season, the Titans were on a three game winning streak.

    Week 17: Jaguars 34, Titans 41
    Hasselback had another 4 touchdowns, including 2 to Kendall Wright, who ended the game with 125 yards receiving. But the story was how the Jaguar’s rushing attack wasn’t enough for the win. MJD had 17 carries and 107 yards and 1 TD, Rashad Jennings had 9 catches and 107 yards and two touchdowns. TEN Javon Ringer did have 68 yards, including a 60 yard run for a touchdown. To cap off the season, Kamerion Wimbley brought Chad Henne down three times, to bring his season total to 20!

    Center Eugene Amano suffers from a Broken Jaw, and will be out two more weeks after Week 17.

    Contract Negotiations:
    No news regarding Contract Negotiations.

    Analysis :
    So other than the starters that I signed in the first half of the year, most of these guys are going to be backups. But, I'm not entirely ready to just clean house yet, so I need them to carry on the success from the Super Bowl, hopefully. Long term picture is we want to have a dynasty, be the Patriots, so to speak. Of those released, it was almost strictly on a scheme fit level. Aside from Ryan Mouton, who I already regret is leaving, but Tommie Campbell really showed me something this season.

    Retirements :
    QB Matt Hasselback (FUCKKKK)
    QB Tom Brady
    WR Randy Moss
    LB London Fletcher
    WR Chad Johnson

    Post-Season Positional Analysis (Season 1)
    QB : With the retirement of Matt Hasselback, it looks so far like the reigns will be handed over to Jake Locker(76.) No one else on my roster to play the position, so this is something to keep an eye out for.
    Scouting Priority : 5. I’ll see what there is in Free Agency for a backup, and maybe scout a little bit for a late round quarterback.

    HB : Chris Johnson, ratings wise(91) is still the go to guy here. But without an experienced quarterback, this stable of backs will have to help carry this team next season. Javon Ringer(77,) Darius Reynaud(70) and Jamie Harper(68) will provide relief for him. It’s a talented backfield, that may or may not live by their offensive line.
    Scouting Priority : 0. We’re pretty set right now.

    FB : No fullbacks left on the roster.
    Scouting Priority : 4. I’ll take a look at Free Agency first, and that’ll likely be where I get my guy from.

    WR : Kenny Britt(89) and Nate Washington(79) lead the receiving corps. With Washington getting older, it’s about time to start working in guys like Kendall Wright(73) who had an amazing season last year, and Damian Williams(71) who showed a little bit in limited time. Lavelle Hawkins(69) will likely remain on special teams unless he has something spectacular come up.
    Scouting Priority : 0. I can’t justify bringing anyone in right now, until contracts are up.

    TE : We have Jared Cook Jr(86) and then a bunch of shit. Craig Stevens is 29, and only (64) overall, and former LB Taylor Thompson from SMU is 23 and (62) overall. Despite my extreme SMU bias, Thompson doesn’t bring much in the way of promising talent.
    Scouting Priority : 2. I may look to see if there’s a good catching TE for my scheme later in the draft.

    LT : Michael Roos(92) coming off a Pro Bowl campaign anchors this offensive line. His backup is only a year younger, but Michael Otto(72) is quite a dip in ability.
    Scouting Priority : 4. I’ll see if I can’t bring in a guy to build behind Roos, and eventually take over for him.

    LG : Steve Hutchinson(85) is a stud, but he’s 35 and likely doesn’t have much time left. Ryan Durand(68) doesn’t have much as a backup, so I’ll likely look to groom something for the future.
    Scouting Priority : 7. I need to find somebody that fits the scheme and can eventually take over.

    C : Eugene Amano(74) is my only Center left, and with the release of Kevin Matthews, will have to take charge of the position. At 31 years old, he doesn’t have a great amount of upside.
    Scouting Priority : 4. I’ll look to FA first, but may have to find something in the draft.

    RG : Leroy Harris(80) is solid, and backed up by Kyle DeVan(71,) should allow for an injury to occur and it not be a huge step back. They’re under 30, but getting up there, but I’ll be good at this position for a little bit.
    Scouting Priority : 0.

    RT : David Stewart(94) is a stud. But Troy Kropog(74) and Byron Stingily(70) provide depth across both RT and LT positions. I won’t need anyone for a while, and if I get the LT I want to build for the future, we should be set.
    Scouting Priority : 0.

    LE : Derrick Morgan(71) is the only man left on our roster here, and doesn’t really fit the scheme. If I get the Nose Tackle I want to get, then a backup DT can play filler if need be.
    Scouting Priority : 3. We need to start building the line up with the right scheme players. Instead of plug-ins from other positions. May look to Free Agency for a starter here.

    RE : Leger Douzable(75) because other than Kamerion Wimbley(74,) he’s the only RE. Since Wimbley is playing another position(ROLB,) I’ll have to find someone to back him up or start.
    Scouting Priority : 7. I’d rather find someone in the draft than sign someone through Free Agency. This might be swapped with the LE position depending on how Free Agency goes.

    DT : Jurrell Casey(75) was a pleasant surprise, and able to get a pass rush despite playing the Nose. He’s young, and a keeper. His backup, Mike Martin(66) doesn’t have the engine that Casey does. While he’ll stay on this year, we’ve got to find some depth to keep our line fresh.
    Scouting Priority : 6. We need to find someone, even if they’re just a high 60s or low 70s player through the draft that’s proper for the position.

    LOLB : Akeem Ayers(76) played like a monster. It should be said that based on my scheme, I’m looking for athletes more than ability. Patrick Bailey(70) is a smart kid who’s got some good size. We’re likely set here a bit for a year.
    Scouting Priority : 1. We may look in the draft just for kicks.

    MLB : Colin McCarthy(76) and Tim Shaw(70) are capable of handling this position, but ROLB Will Witherspoon will be a starter here for the rest of his career. We could use another player here.
    Scouting Priority : 4. We will look at Free Agency to see if there’s anything out there, but may have to lean towards the draft first.

    ROLB : With Witherspoon playing MLB, Zach Brown(68) is a backup to Kamerion Wimbley. He’s got the athleticism, but down the road we’ll look to have a solid pass rusher from that position.
    Scouting Priority : 0. We’re fine here for now, unless we find someone we can’t pass up on in Free Agency.

    CB : My favorite spot right now. Jason McCourty(81,) Alterraun Verner(77,) Tommie Campbell(75) and Coty Sensabaugh(68) are all 26 or younger. We’re going to try and hang onto these guys, since we lost Ryan Mouton, we’ll eventually find a good fifth CB, but don’t know if this is the year.
    Scouting Priority : 0. I want to see how Sensabaugh develops, and don’t want a rookie to come in and keep that from happening.

    FS : Michael Griffin(90) will be here for the rest of his career. Mark it down. Markelle Martin(67) backs him up, and we may try and upgrade his backup at some point for special teams purposes.
    Scouting Priority : 1. I’ll see what is out there, and who may fit our scheme.

    SS : Jordan Babineaux(82) is good, but probably won’t get a whole lot better. He’ll be the starter for a while, but Al Afalava(71) doesn’t have starting potential. Al will be good for special teams, but nothing more.
    Scouting Priority : 2. Eventually we’ll upgrade this position to build behind Babineaux, but not sure anyone is in that position yet.

    K, P : Rob Bironas is great(93) but won’t be around for much longer. We’ll address that when he’s gone. Brett Kern is only a (74) overall, so if there’s something out there in Free Agency we may make a move.
    Scouting Priority : 0.

    Free Agency (Season 1)
    Big Name FAs :
    RE Luis Castillo – Oakland Raiders
    CB Nate Clements – Miami Dolphins
    QB Kurt Warne – New England Patriots
    DT Shaun Rogers – New England Patriots
    CB Quentin Jammer – Indianapolis Colts

    Players Pursued :
    MLB Tyrone McKenzie(74/Tampa 2) – We need the depth, and he comes cheap, see if we can’t patch this position up a little bit.
    FB Brad Smelley(65/West Coast) – He’s a receiving Tight End, which for the system, should workout pretty good.
    C Max Unger(82/Balanced) – He could be the Center for the foreseeable future if we land him, could really help us focus on other areas on the team.
    LE Arthur Jones(80/3-4 Run Stopper) – He’s young, and he’s able. We don’t need the best in the trenches right now, just someone to take up space and allow our LBers around the edge.

    Players Signed :
    FB Brad Smelley
    C Max Unger
    LE Arthur Jones
    MLB Tyrone McKenzie

    Anaylsis : We got everyone we wanted, which gives us a little liberty through the draft. Overall a win, and we have three starters within the group.

    Draft Analysis (Season 1)
    Doing this a little differently than Steve did. We have a pick in every round except for the 6th.

    Scouting Reports, Players we like :
    TE Blake Zorn, Cincinnati : He’s big bodied, quick, and a receiver first. The only TE I want to bring in at this point, he’s projected 4th Round, 26th Pick
    LT Kristian Weidensall, Marshall : Big bodied, only 20 years old, could be a project for us to backup Roos. Projected 3rd Round, 7th Pick
    LG Anthony McCamish, Nebraska : He’s not really a scheme fit, but he has a great amount of run blocking ability. There might be someone better out there. Projected 3rd Round, 17th Pick
    RE Lawrence Cunningham, Oklahoma : At 6’5” 330lbs, could be an anchor on the line. He’s strong, but not very smart. We’ll see.
    RE Brandon Robinson, New Mexico State : He’s not as big as Lawrence, but might be the better player overall.
    DT Devon Hargrove, Kansas : He’s got to be a first round pick for us. Ideal size, and he’ll seal the NT position for a while. If we don’t get the RE we want, Jurrell Casey can move over to that position.
    QB Tucker Marshall, LSU : He’s a storyline player, and he’s an older Quarterback. Looking for a backup, so if he’s there late, he might be a good option.
    MLB Javonta Moore, UCF : He’s projected to go in the 7th round, but he’s got the right size, just needs to be in the right system. His awareness seems to be the only question at this point.
    ROLB Brian Thames, SMU : He’s an outside pass rusher, and he’s from SMU. He’s also 6’5”. Wet dream. He’s projected to go in the 5th round, 8th pick.
    FS Manasee West, Navy : If he’s there, and there’s no one left on our board, he looks to possibly be a good fit for our system. Projected 5th round, 21st pick.
    LE Bryan Tarver, Texas A&M : The fact that he’s an Aggie might keep us from drafting him all together. But he’s got good size, and might be an option early if we miss out on a few guys.
    WR Corey Washington, Georgia : Not sure how I came across him, but he’s a 6th round player, who’s got some incredible catching abilities. Could be a game changer. Might try and trade back early to see if I can’t get some picks, and maybe include him in our plans despite us being good here.

    The Season 1 Draft

    ROLB Roland Sharpe goes First Overall to the Miami Dolphins, with DT Jakari Christmas going to the Browns with the Second.

    After watching the first round, and really wanting DT Devon Hargrove, I end up pulling the trigger, instead of trading back for more picks. This isn't the year to do that exactly I don't believe. Plus, that might be an option at the end of the second round. QB Tucker Marshall goes to the Eagles the pick before me, the 31st overall.

    The Pick : 1st Round/32nd Pick
    DT Devon Hargrove, Kansas : We had to get this guy, and with this move, should be solid there for freakin ever.

    With our LT, Kristian Weidensall, gone, we're going to look to trade back into the draft. Unfortunately, we weren't really getting any good offers, so we're going to have to choose between a few guys.

    The Prospects :
    LG, Anthony McCamish, Nebraska : We like him, but he might not be what we think he is.
    TE, Blake Zorn, Cinci : It'd be a big reach, and early, I think we can get him at the end of the 3rd roung.

    The Pick : 2nd Round/32nd Pick
    LG Anthony McCamish, Nebraska : Good size, good intangibles, but not a true fit to the scheme. Would help the running game.

    Not many people coming off my board right now, but that's mostly because I knew I'd be on the back end of each round. It gets to me, and my guy is there, to go with Jared Cook Jr.

    The Pick : 3rd Round/32nd Pick
    TE Blake Zorn, Cincinnati : Hands, Hands, Hands. Should be a considerable upgrade at backup TE.

    Through the fourth round, two picks before us, San Francisco gets our OLB Brian Thames. Which is a bummer, but there are plenty of fish in the sea. Maybe not great for that position, but we'll manage. Both REs Lawrence Cunningham and Brandon Robinson are available, and this is about 15 picks early from their projection. Cunningham has the better size, and after re-reading, Robinson is projected 6th round, not 5th.

    The Pick : 4th Round/32nd Pick
    RE Lawrence Cunningham, Oklahoma : Good size, ultimately a backup, but will provide depth hopefully.

    Going into the 5th round pick, at the end, and not having a 6th round pick, we're going to do a little reaching. MLB Javonta Moore looks promising, but looks like a mid 7th rounder. WR Corey Washington, the phenom, will surely be gone. So we have to make a choice, and since we addressed the backup MLB situation in Free Agency for now, we're going Washington.

    The Pick : 5th Round/32nd Pick
    WR Corey Washington, Georgia : I think this guy is a gem in the rush. Good release, and all the catching intangibles.

    I'm thinking at this point, since I'm going to be the last pick in the draft, that if Javonta Moore isn't there, we might just take a shot in the dark. If there's a place that is acceptable to do it, it's this one.

    The Prospects :
    Ty Lucas, CB, Hawaii : Projected 2nd Round, 32nd Pick
    Kenneth Bailey, FS, W. Texas A&M : Not Projected to be picked, not sure if he's a good choice.

    The truth is, in my limited experience of drafting non-projected players, it hasn't worked out at all. Ty might be a let down by his projection, but could be a steal at this point in the draft.

    The Pick : 7th Round/32nd Pick - Mr. Irrelevant
    CB Ty Lucas, Hawaii : No way I could pass up on this guys production level.

    Draft Recap (Season 1)

    First Round, 32nd Pick
    DT Devon Hargrove, Kansas : 81 Overall
    Analysis : He's immediately going to be a starter, and getting him at the end of the first round was a blessing in my opinion, despite a handful of DTs getting picked beforehand.

    Second Round, 32nd Pick
    LG Anthony McCamish, Nebraska : 67 Overall
    Analysis : A dissapointment, but it was practically a third round pick, and because he doesn't 'fit' our scheme, which likely takes him from high 60s to 70 rating, I'll take it.

    Third Round, 32nd Pick
    TE Blake Zorn, Cincinnati : 64 Overall
    Analysis : Surprising to me, because of what I had him at after scouting. I think he still has the receiving ability I think he does, but it'll be the lack of blocking that hurt him.

    Fourth Round, 32nd Pick
    RE Lawrence Cunningham, Oklahoma : 69 Overall
    Analysis : He is what I thought he'd be, and size wise, will immediately provide depth. Hopefully with the heavy rotation we use on our defensive line will get enough time to develop.

    Fifth Round, 32nd Pick
    WR Corey Washington, Georgia : 70 Overall
    Analysis : Awesome quality for where he was taken. He'll eventually work into the rotation more once Nate Washington moves on, but could be a real Calvin Johnson type receiver with work. But that's years down the road.

    Seventh Round, 32nd Pick
    CB Ty Lucas, Hawaii : 62 Overall
    Analysis : Well, there's a reason he slipped so far. I'll bring him in for Special Teams at this point, but he'll have to have some kind of returning ability for him to find a place here.


    Draft Grade : B-

    Draft Analysis : Well, it's a little difficult when you're only looking for the letter grade. But, what I didn't do this time, was scout about 20 more people just in case. I didn't really run out of options, but what I'd like to do is be able to load up on later picks if I'm able to get quality like I did with Cunningham and Washington.

    Pre-Season Analysis :

    With a difficult schedule against the NFC South this year, and an unproven Quarterback in Jake Locker, I’m a bit nervous about this season. Of course, a Super Bowl wasn’t even a thought for me, and now that I’ve got one, I want to put in place a system to create a true Dynasty type organization. Chris Redman and Bobby Carpenter were signed as backups, intentionally. The later really helping out on the Special Teams side of the ball. Trading away Nate Washington was something I decided on after Kendall Wright had his big performance, and the drafting of WR Corey Washington. We’re going to have to run the ball considerably better, and with DT Devon Hargrove, we should be able to stop the run better as well.
