Interesting. One kid of local interest could be Zach Rogers. May be a late (7th round if not UFA) pick. With all the other UT WR's and Da'rick Rogers (formerly of UT) projected to go in the first few rounds, that kid could be a decent possession WR if he could put on 10 lbs or so. If Amendola can make it, I'd think Rogers could eventually in the right scenario.

I know about Gholston. He is big, but slow as a DE around the edges. More of a 3-4 End. So I haven't looked at him much for the Titans.

I loved Gilislee, but we signed Greene so i didn't look at RBs much after that.

One of My Favorite Players in the Draft

Georgia DE/OLB - Cornelius Washington ~ 6'4 265lbs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KSD-XriyTQ



Quote:
Participating in the Senior Bowl, Washington was aligned as a 4-3 DE under the direction of Jim Schwartz and the Lions Coaching Staff. Washington had a great week of practice culminating in a good performance in the actual game. At the Combine, Washington amassed some incredible numbers; a 4.55 40 yard dash (faster than the 4.58 time by Barkevious Mingo), a 39 inch vertical (higher than Cordarrelle Patterson's 37 inches), 36 reps on the bench press (with 34 inch arms; more than Jesse Williams' 30 reps), and a 10.67 ft broad jump (just farther than Dion Jordan's 10.17 feet). By themselves combine results don't mean very much, but they do force scouts to go back and review a player's tape, and they can be used to reinforce a player's on-field deficiencies/strengths.

Quote:
Cornelius Washington possesses tangible athleticism and superb explosion as a pass rusher, making him a valuable commodity. With a little tutelage and experience, Washington could develop into a highly productive 4-3 DE. As he develops an arsenal of pass rushing moves, and masters the finer points of the position, Washington will only improve.

Quote:
Washington didn't produce at Georgia because he was Miscast in the Georgia 3-4; Washington is an edge rusher, and not a lane clogging 5-tech, but Cornelius Washington could be one of the top 4-3 Defensive Ends available in the 2013 NFL Draft.
