As the draft approaches and the tongues fork (more than usual), it becomes impossible to know who’s telling the truth and who isn’t.
Easy rule of thumb? Anyone who is talking isn’t telling the truth.
Of course, that could allow for some teams to tell the truth, with the assumption that they won’t be giving up any secrets because no one will believe anything they say.
Against that somewhat convoluted background, the Titans said Tuesday that they are looking for a press-coverage cornerback in the draft. The desire for a player who can handle a receiver one-on-one comes from the Titans’ plan to use more blitzes in 2013.
“We’ll definitely look at a corner — if there’s one we like at the time we’re picking — that has those kinds of abilities, that can get up more in your face and play a little more man-to-man,” coach Mike Munchak said, via John Glennon of the Tennessean.
Of course, applying that “if” amounts to inviting anyone drafting behind the Titans at No. 10 to jump past Tennessee to get the best press-coverage corner on the board before the Titans can call the football equivalent of “shotgun.”
Which is precisely what the Titans may want someone to do, if they are actually targeting someone other than a cornerback with the 10th overall pick.
In other words, I’ll be glad when the draft finally starts.
