The Titans had a lot of work to do this off-season. The Titans finished the 2012 season with one of the worst offenses (tenth least in points scored) and defenses (most points allowed) in the league. Much like 2011, the Titans lacked defensive and offensive consistency. The Titans pass protection struggled, allowing the twelfth most sacks at 39. Suffice it to say, the Titans needs entering free agency were aplenty. Continue reading →

The 2013 NFL Draft is in the books and training camps are only three months away! This weekend you probably heard a lot of spin about certain draft picks and what they mean for all 32 teams. The draft took many interesting twists and turns this week, but there were at least four developments that stood out which affect both reality, and fantasy. As fantasy footballers know, fantasy football titles Continue reading →
The first round of the draft is always the most unpredictable. One week ago, no one would have believed the Dolphins would trade down to the third pick to draft a defensive end as opposed to the best offensive tackle on the board. No one would have believed that DJ Hayden would have been the first defensive back drafted. No one would have believed Continue reading →
This year’s draft will likely be the most unpredictable in history. One thing appears certain though. A large number of offensive linemen will be drafted. It is expected that four offensive tackles will be drafted within the first seven picks in the draft. One quarter of the picks will be spent on offensive linemen, tackles and guards.

It’s just three days until the NFL draft! If you can hardly wait, you aren’t alone. Millions feel the same way. This is the last look at the AFC teams and what their positional needs are in the draft. Of interest, AFC teams hold three of the first five draft picks, and seven of the first ten draft picks. So, for those teams in the back half of the draft (half of which are NFC teams) with similar needs, which players the top ten teams draft matters. Continue reading →

Put another way, Continue reading →
With just under a week before the NFL draft, this is one last opportunity to look at the defensive signings to date.
