NFL Draft Eve - 05/07/14
We're now only a little more than 24 hours away from kickoff. I'm not talking about games, although I guess maybe I am. Lets' face it. A lot of "games" are played during the NFL Draft. Teams posturing is a staple of this annual tradition.
The Tennessee Titans held their pre-draft news conference on Tuesday. If you're looking for headlines, you'll need to look elsewhere. This isn't general manager Ruston Webster's first rodeo. He knows better than to reveal too much to the media. The NFL's top brass has always been nervous of giving too much information, for fear that it will end up in the enemy's (other teams) hands and be used against the Titans. Those of us in the media laugh. If a GM raves about a prospective draft pick during the pre-draft gathering, it means the GM isn't going to draft that player.
Really the only time we can take a GM at his word is during the post-draft news conference when the selection has been made and the newest Titan is officially announced by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
