Monty Rice grew up in Huntsville, Ala., not far south of Nashville. Attended about 10 #Titans games as a kid, including #Titans 20-#Cardinals 17, the Young-to-Britt game on Nov. 29, 2009. Favorite players were Chris Johnson, Keith Bulluck and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
While calling undrafteds, I'd also place a call to MyCole Pruitt if I were the #Titans. Not going to cost a lot.
Is confidence that high in Tommy Hudson, Parker Hesse and/or Jared Pickney? @flyyCole_x4
So Racey McMath looks the part (6-2, 211, 4.39), but also looks like a sixth-round pick:
He will need some time to be developed, will have to win his way onto the team and onto the field by making himself an indispensable special teams player. #Titans
Under new NFL rules, linebackers can wear 1-59 and 90-99. @RashadWeaver wore 17 at Pitt and might have been a candidate for it in the NFL, but... he lands with the #Titans where his QB, Ryan Tannehill, happens to wear it.
Dez Fitzpatrick: #Titans saw reps in slot at Senior Bowl and early in Louisville career. Impressed I can do that at my size. I can run underneath routes, every route in the tree, I'm a complete receiver, can keep them guessing.
I'm not going to knock the #Titans for moving up to get a receiver. Clear need, unaddressed in the first three rounds. If this is a guy they love who they think can produce and produce early, quality over quantity.
#Titans didn't address WR, TE or pass rusher in the first three rounds.
In franchise history, it's been very rare to find notable first-year production from those spots from this point forward in the draft, as I'll illustrate in this thread.
