The Titans' fans have WR ranked as the most desirable 1st round selection so I was trying to stay in character and represent them appropriately. I sent an email to Guru to take Manningham. Vince Young is the Titans' building block and he really needs some reliable receivers. VY struggled with interceptions so it seemed like getting a WR with excellent hands and smooth route running seemed like the best way to jump start the offense.
I really wanted Sweed because he is also sure handed plus he played with VY at Texas and won a championship. Manningham might have more upside due to his speed, grace and body control. He is very slender, but there are other slender WRs that have made big impacts.
