Titans will consider RB at #6

Since smokescreen has been used so much in this thread, I'll shake it up a little:

It's about as likely as Maurice Clarett going #1 overall, and "Pot-Head" Williams regaining any measure of respect as an NFL player.

As much as I think this is a smokescreen, I do think the Titans need a better backup RB. Maybe investing in a Cedric Houston in the 3rd or 4th round wouldn't be a bad decision.

Didn't I tell y'all last year that Chris Brown's upright running style would cause injury problems?

So who will they select then? I see the top five going

1) Aaron Rodgers - SF
2) Ronnie Brown - Miami
3) Alex Smith - Cle
4) Braylon Edwards - Chi
5) Mike Williams - TB

If Tampa chooses to go RB then they grab one of the receivers. If not how can you pass on your choice of two elite RB's to take a CB(I already discussed this position) or LB who has a rep of not taking on blockers? As for trading down everyone wants to trade down and no one wants to trade up so I see that as an unlikely scenario. The 23rd is approaching much too slowly :-/

One sidenote I read the last two RB's the Bears selected at #4 overall... Gayle Sayres and Sweetness 8-o

i agree with this ;-D

I remember last year, I was saying his upright running style would cause him to suck (wasn't high on Brown). Shows what I know. :-D

Anyway - I won't pretend to know anything about the draft this year, because I really don't (been kind of out-of-the-loop since the season started). All I can say is that it wouldn't hurt if the Titans had a quality backup RB... I was also readin' that Fisher was interested in bringing back Eddie George to back up Brown...

Right on the money there. I was saying that too. ;-D That type of running style is also bad for fumbles, as someone else already mentioned, he had more fumbles than TDs. :-t

There is one thing I know... Roy Williams is an absolute beast. He's injured three players this season, tackles hard, runs fast, and is all-in-all one of the toughest guys in football.

And I saw Chris Brown stiff arm his ass to the ground in preseason.

I was astounded that a small, upright running RB could be so vicious to such a powerful safety.

So injury prone or not, which we still have little way of knowing, he is certainly tough. No debate. I say Tennessee draft WR or best defensive player come #6. Gut tells me that Norm Chow might want his favorite toy back in his playpen...

If there is no debate that he is tough then why did Jeff Fisher come out and say last year that he wished Chris Brown would try to play through some of his injuries.

Coach called him out. Seems like his toughness is certainly in question.

He is a risk/reward guy that I will let others take a chance on. Seems like he misses some time darn near every game for something or other.

it would be a dumb move by the titans. but i think drafting a running back in the first round by any team is stupid. considering chris brown hasnt been healthy since high school, i could see this being legit.

Yea, I wouldn't use the #6 pick on a RB in TENN situation.

Brown is fragile but they have alot more to worry about. Thats for sure.
