Visitor’s guide to enjoying the NFL Draft in Nashville

Advice from a Nashville native on where to find good food, what to do, and what to avoid while you’re in town for the draft.

I grew up in Nashville during the late 80’s and 90’s before professional sports was really even on the radar for locals so it’s still a little surreal to me that my hometown is hosting the NFL Draft in just over two months. The city has changed a ton during my lifetime — almost exclusively for the better — and I can’t wait for the NFL world to experience...

How do these people get national media jobs?

I long for the day where the Titans can get good enough that national writers will actually pay attention to them. This isn’t the “WAAAH we need respect” thing Titans’ fans usually yell about. This is the “I am tired of seeing mock drafts during this time of year where people have no idea what the Titans are going to do because they haven’t done any research on the Titans” thing.

Today’s installment comes from Jared Dubin at CBS where he suggests the Titans are going to take...

Melo interviews Devine Ozigbo

The 2019 NFL draft class is loaded with excellent value at the running back position, but few prospects possess the combination of size, athleticism and competitive drive that Nebraska running back Devine Ozigbo showcased throughout his time as a Cornhusker.

Ozigbo wants to make his mark on the league despite not earning an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine (a huge mistake on the league’s part).

In this exclusive interview with MCM, Ozigbo talks about how playing in two totally different...

Titans News: Remembering Steve

Yesterday would have been Steve McNair’s 46th birthday. Titans Online has the top 5 Steve McNair moments of all time. Steve McNair was the reason I became a Titans fan. Watching him play was an absolute joy, and it genuinely upsets me that he’s gone. RIP Air McNair.

Kyle Rudolph thinks the Titans are going to love Downing, the new TE’s coach.

ESPN.com says that it’s a buyers market for QBs. I say go get Case Keenum to backup Marcus. He’s perfect for the job.

Gil Brandt does not...

Titans News: Long Way Back

Jonathan Cyprien tore his ACL in August, and is raring to come back in 2019. Cyp has been an incredible teammate, staying with the team, going to all team meetings as well as position meetings.

I fear that it’ll take longer for him to come back at full strength, like it did for Jack Conklin, and I also think Kenny Vaccaro’s contract situation impacts Cyp as well. Kenny is the superior player, but is no longer under contract, whereas Cyp is, putting the Titans in a bit of the proverbial...

Melo interviews Zach Allen

Boston College has done a terrific job of churning out quality NFL prospects as of late, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

One of this year’s many draft hopefuls pouring out of Chestnut Hill is Zach Allen, a highly productive defensive line prospect who showcased his ability to play all over the defensive line throughout his time as an Eagle.

Allen recently spoke exclusively with MCM about his pass rush arsenal, the lessons he learned at Boston College and why he can’t wait...

Titans News: Pees and Clear

Dean Pees is free and clear of the health issues he had last year and now is ready to run it back with the Titans defense. The defense was already plenty good in 2018, the offense needs to rise up to meet it in 2019.

Antonio Brown is done with the Steelers and formally asked for a trade request. Should the Titans be interested? Absolutely. Every team in the NFL would be nuts to not at least check in on what it would take to get Brown. That being said, after checking, I can understand why...

Report: Texans expected to release Demaryius Thomas

James Palmer of NFL Network is reporting that the Texans are expected to release Demaryius Thomas:

The #Texans are expected to release WR Demaryius Thomas today per source. Thomas tore his left Achilles in Week 16. It’s too early for a time table, but he’s returned from the injury quickly in the past. He tore his right Achilles after his rookie season and came back in 6 months

— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) February 12, 2019

As Palmer mentioned there, Thomas tore his Achillies in...

Titans News: Tour De Mock

The great Jim Wyatt does another tour of mock drafts and a lot of them have the Titans selecting Marquise Brown at #19 or TJ Hockensen. The pick that gets me really excited is Jeffery Simmons. Pairing Simmons with Casey would be unbelievable for the defense.

Jim Wyatt also does his Tuesday mailbag. He answers a lot of international questions. Good to see Titans fans from around the world.

Who are the top free agents of 2019? NFL.com has a list for you. It’ll be interesting to see how...

Prioritizing Team Needs: Is Offense More Important Than Defense?

With needs at EDGE, WR, and iOL, which position should be the Titans’ top priority this offseason?

As we meander our way slowly through the 2019 offseason (January has already come and gone!), there will certainly be plenty more discussion concerning which positions the Titans might try to upgrade this offseason.

Ask any Titans fan and they’ll tell you about the three clear weaknesses on Tennessee’s roster: wide receiver, interior offensive line, and edge rusher.

In this salary cap...

Melo’s top-32 big board

Evaluating an entire draft class worth of prospects is a lengthy process. Many of the important pieces of the puzzle are yet to be revealed, such as this month’s NFL Scouting Combine. I will continue to evaluate all prospects throughout the next few months. Please keep that in mind as I reveal my first big board to you. I’m just publishing a top-32 for now. In the coming weeks and months, I’ll continue to expand to 75, 100, possibly all the way to 250 or more.

Use this as a sneak peak...

The Titans should consider drafting Marquise Brown

Bring Hollywood to Nashville.

It’s clear that the Titans need receivers that don’t go by the name of Corey Davis. Along with guard play, the receiving corps was a major weakness for the team in 2018, and that was further exploited with Delanie Walker missing 15 games due to an ankle injury he suffered in Week 1.

With that in mind, it’s no surprise that it’s been suggested the team look to free agency or the draft to address that issue. In free agency, guys like Tyrell Williams,...

Melo interviews Drew Sample

There are plenty of big names available in what may be the deepest tight end class the NFL draft has ever seen, but you’d be wise to not overlook Drew Sample. A versatile weapon that can help out an offense in a number of ways, Sample is an incredibly intriguing prospect.

A well-rounded prospect who showcased that versatility at the Senior Bowl, Sample recently spoke exclusively with MCM about his experience in Mobile, what he most enjoys about playing tight end and which of his Washington...

Titans News: Identity Crisis?

The Titans have an offensive identity crisis says NFL.com. They say some things about Marcus that I don’t really agree with. That’s not to say Marcus is without flaws, I just think they are hitting on the wrong ones.

Derrick loves Arthur Smith’s physical style of offense. Sign me up for whatever scores points.

The Titans add a center that has been not very good in his career, but he was college teammates with Marcus!

Titans sign Hroniss Grasu

The Titans have added one of quarterback Marcus Mariota‘s college teammates to their 90-man roster. The team announced the signing of offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu on Thursday. Grasu played at the University of Oregon with Mariota from 2012-2014. Mariota wound up going second overall in the 2015 draft and the Bears selected Grasu 69 picks [more]

Titans Offseason Roster Breakdown: Tight Ends

Todd McShay Mock Draft 2.0: Titans add a tight end

Becoming a popular pick for the Titans. This mock draft season has seen analysts addressing two positions that aren’t primary needs for the Titans — cornerback and tight ends. Iowa’s T.J. Hockenson has been a popular target for the Titans around mocks everywhere so far. ESPN’s Todd McShay hopped on that train with his second mock of the season today. Here’s what the ESPN analyst had to say on the Titans’ pick. Delanie Walker is 34 and was injured last season, so the addition of...
