    Looking at both Fisher and Sneads history you can see

    They love to draft Defensive Lineman, LB's and CB's early on with a few picks here and there for a QB/WR in the first round. Obviously, the Julio Jones trade comes to mind for Snead.

    That sets up well to what I and many are thinking about Clowney or Mack at #2 (and possibly Watkins although I think they go WR in 2nd if they want one) if we can't trade down- Then CB at #13. I wouldn't mind a trade down at 13 if they still think we can get Fuller later in the first round.

    One thing I did notice is that they didn't draft any OLs in the first round

    That's the odd thing about the NFL. As it turns out, when one has an All-Pro at a certain position, one does not tend to use a 1st round pick on that position.

    Fisher has already commented that he has no problem drafting OL in the first round and that the question itself is laughable.

    I really don't think drafting tendencies applies. Drafting is based on a current roster and the holes that need to be filled.

    Wasn't it like 17 years he wasn't in control of the draft?

    Seems ridiculous to me that knowledgeable fans would believe a head coach could be with a team for that many years and not have some control over his 1st round picks at some point.

    But you certainly have a right to your opinion.

    However, the fact remains, that the next olineman drafted in the first round by a Jeff Fisher led team, will be the first.

    You tell me what All pro Olineman played for Jeff Fisher for 17 years.

    What else would he say, when posed that particular question?

    Re: Looking at both Fisher and Sneads history you can see

    "Not in control of the draft" I assume that means he at least had some input into what kinds of players he was looking for, but the GM went out and did the homework to find the right players and I know Fisher was totally against big time bust Vince Young. So, one would have to assume that Fisher had some say in the players he would be coaching, wouldn't one ?

    Fisher had a lot of input into who got drafted with the exception of Vince dip sH&&it Young.

    Unless you are Mike Martz apparently.
