      Yes. Gettleman ended up getting the Panthers job. I'm very shocked (yet very relieved) that Ross never ends up getting a GM job.

        I have heard some of the local sports radio guys down here mention how the Titans missed out on JPP, Nicks, Rolle(they took PacMan instead) for 1 reason or another. I believe the Titans passed on Moss and took Kevin Dyson that year in the draft as well.

        Hindsight seems to always be 20/20 though, right?
        I definetly wanted cook bigtime...

          I think the more incredible thing is how many good receivers came out of this draft. Nicks, Crabtree, Harvin, Maclin, and Britt are all legitimate #1 receivers. They all seem to have trouble staying on the field, ironically. Nicks always misses games, as does Crabtree. Harvin and Maclin both seem to have a lot of head injuries, while Britt either tears his ACL or just can't stay out of trouble.

          I think any of these 5 would succeed with Eli, to be honest. It seems like Harvin, Maclin, and Nicks are the most humble, and I definitely would take these three over the other two. Harvin is probably the most athletic, Britt is prototypical, yet Nicks seems to outperform all of them. Strange.

            I don't understand what people mean when they say one team "screwed over" another in the draft. It's a very fair process with the order pre-determined. If you want to move up, you have to pay for it.

            If you think the Colts "screwed-over" 31 other teams by taking Luck first overall, then I would agree that we may have screwed-over the Titans.

            If what you mean is that we took somebody that someone else would've taken with the very next pick. . .then yeah. I think most people had Nicks rated quite a bit higher than Britt.

              Britt is a screwball but I put equal blame on the organization. The Tittens are scumbags from the top down.

                Hopefully we can groom Ross into the Heir Apparent for our own GM position after Reese wants to move on...

                  Another thing I noticed about that draft: Heyward Bey and Crabtree were picked before Nicks, Maclin, Britt, and Harvin....crazy
                  I don't think anyone got screwed over. As I recall that draft, Nicks was highly regarded but Britt, Heyward Bey and Crabtree were all considered top picks. JR did a nice job in getting Hakeem for us. Still, the draft is still an inexact science. That is why we have scouts.
                  No one remembers who came in second.

                      DHB and Crabtree would be beasts and top 5 WR with Eli throwing the football.

                          A friend of mine who interned with the Titans at the time said the Titans definitely had Britt higher than Nicks; they liked his ability to stretch the field vertically. It's tough to guage with his injury history and their lack of quarterback stability. Look at the receivers that have done well from that class and you'll see QB play had a ton to do with it.

                          Harvin went to the Pro Bowl as a rookie with Favre as his QB. Nicks has had Eli. Maclin had McNabb and Vick.

                          DHB had...? Who was there before Palmer? Russell? Crabtree had the early Alex Smith years. Britt has had Locker, the twilight of Hasselbeck, and someone else I can't quite place. After Smith settled into an offense, Crabtree started to play like the pick he was.
