Draft Day has arrived: Final thoughts, Michael Roos extension

Draftniks and NFL aficionados can finally toss out the mock drafts, because the real thing is about to occur. The premier event of the NFL offseason is finally upon us: Draft day is here!

At Total Titans, we have attempted to provide you the reader, with well-rounded coverage of the Titans’ wants and needs for the 2008 Draft. Whether its Andrews’s wishes to bring in a DE such as Phillip Merling, Tom’s desire to improve the defensive trenches via the acquisition of Kentwan Balmer, or my own dreams of adding Vince Young’s ex-teammate Limas Sweed to the Titans’ offensive arsenal, we’ve tried to give you a variety of different perspectives on the Titans’ draft needs.
At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that the Titans acquire some talent that is going to improve their team and enhance their aspirations of continuing their journey to becoming a legitimate Super Bowl contender, regardless of what position the Titans’ new first rounder will play.
In what hopefully will serve as a positive omen for the Titans on draft day, tackle Michael Roos has agreed on a new six-year contract worth $43 million, making him one of the game’s highest paid tackles. Michael’s extension ensures his presence on the Titans’ offensive line for many years to come. Next up is focusing on the other bookend on the offensive line, David Stewart, who the Titans also hope to sign to a long term deal in the near future.
Well, that’s it for Titan news for now. Of course, we will have plenty to tell you about once the draft begins later today. In the meantime, enjoy the draft, and hopefully, we’ll all be applauding the decision-making of the Titans’ front office this weekend.
