YAZOO PODCAST: Titans' specific fits from draft analyst Kyle Crabbs

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  -- We often don't spend enough time considering how to shape a conversation with a draft analyst.

For this week's edition of our podcast, I talked to Kyle Crabbs and asked if he could, ahead of time, ponder guys he thinks fit the Titans' needs and systems.

And so our chat centers on outside linebackers, defensive linemen, interior offensive linemen and receivers. He paints us pictures of a couple guys who could be there for the Titans at each of those spots at No. 19 in the first round, in the second/third rounds and in the fourth round and after.

I think you will really enjoy it as he walks us through 16 different prospects. You should follow Crabbs on Twitter at @GrindingTheTape and read him with several other top draft analysts at The Draft Network.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A deep dive into the mail in a podcast sounded good to me this week. And since no middle manager had to justify the idea because we run an efficient and smart one-man operation here, it came quickly into existence.

(Yes, occasionally I still tap into some bitterness from my old life.)

This is sure to get you through a good workout or a drive and I am confident you'll come through it better off.

Among the topics covered: The optimal time for the draft, a free agent I'd still sign, Dennis Kelly's future, Dion Lewis' reliance on Derrick Henry, right guard or center solutions, Arthur Smith's draft influence, how expanded replay will affect challenges, a real view of the Titans' fan base and information overload for draft decision-makers.

YAZOO PODCAST: Titans' views from Peter King, Chris Simms and Albert Breer

PHEONIX  -- The front of the Arizona Biltmore is very long, with the media area at one end, the conference center where the big meetings were held in the middle and the hotel at the other end, with the bar, restaurants and some nice outdoor space where people hung out during free time.

I made that walk, like a lot of media, a number of times during the NFL owners' meetings, as it's where you maximize your chances to run into coaches, executives and media friends.

And a few times I came across colleagues in the national media who I respect and who were willing to share a few minutes.

While I am not always giant on national perspective on local events, I know you like hear it. So I gathered thoughts on what the Titans have done since the new league year started. This week's podcast features my chats with Peter King of NBC Sports, Chris Simms of Pro Football Talk and Albert Breer of Monday Morning Quarterback/ Sports Illustrated.

YAZOO PODCAST: Titans' free-agent/trade review

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Whoever the Titans add with veteran experience going forward will be a bonus, and the expectations for how they impact the lineup and the roster will be a lot smaller than those for the three free agents that came in early.

In the newest edition of the podcast, I review the additions of Rodger Saffold, Cameron Wake and Adam Humphries as well as the trade acquisition of backup quarterback of Ryan Tannehill.

INDIANAPOLIS -- How will first-round quarterbacks affect the Titans in the first round? How hard is it to plug them in given the lack of QB needy teams in the top five? With 13 high-quality defensive front players, how likely are the Titans to land one they want?

PodcastYazooArt

I delve into that and how little Jon Robinson and Mike Vrabel really said at the NFL scouting combine, even as we had fun interviews with both on The Midday 180 on Radio Row at the NFL scouting combine. Here's Robinson and here is Vrabel

YAZOO PODCAST: The Titans' five worst contracts

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Odds are you can guess what I'd rate as the Titans' worst contract.

But how about the franchise's five worst/most troublesome contracts? I talk through all the contract details and hash them out along with playing time, statistical production, Pro Football Focus grades, and where their salaries rank on the team and in the league.

I'd love to hear your feedback and perhaps we'll have some debate about my placement.
