04/30/2012 - Tight end Taylor Thompson is certainly the biggest gamble in the Titans draft, considering he played defensive end at SMU, having lost his position as a tight end when June Jones came in as head coach in 2008 and installed the run-and-shoot, which doesn't use a tight end. Thompson liked the school and the Mustangs program enough that he switched to defense and not only became an all-conference pick, but had a draftable grade there, had he not switched position, says Titans scout Jon Salge. "This is a player who was above the line as a defensive end prospect," said Salge, who scouts the South Central region that includes the state of Texas for the Titans. "So we knew we were dealing with a premier athlete from the beginning." The Titans, who traded up in round five to select Thompson, believe he has enough athleticism to become a dynamic threat at the position. - The Sports Xchange
