In the '14 Early Mock Draft Titans select: round 1

US PRESSWIRE

The Titans ended up picking fifth in the 2014 early mock draft I am a part of. Find out who I took and why

The first four picks went like this:

1. JAX- Teddy Bridgewater QB, Louisville

2. OAK- Jadeveon Clowney DE, SCAR

3. BUF- Marqise Lee WR, USC

4. ARZ- Taylor Lewan OT, Michigan

So, with the fifth pick the Tennessee Titans selected...Bradley Roby CB, OSU.

Before I get attacked for not taking a QB, hear me out. With Bridgewater gone there are at least five starting quality quarterbacks available: Tajh Boyd, David Fales, A.J. McCarron, Marcus Mariota, and Aaron Murray. I highly doubt we will see a first round with six QBs taken, and none of them are particularly valued over the others.

Knowing that I would get a shot at one of these five in round two, I went after BPA. Jake Mathews was the BPA on my board, but with Roos in place it hardly seemed like a good fit. Also in consideration was Anthony Barr DE/OLB, UCLA and Sammy Watkins WR, Clemson. I passed on Barr because of a poor scheme fit, and Watkins would add talent to a stacked position group.

That left me with one of my favorite players, Bradley Roby. Roby is an blue-chip CB that could have gone above Dee Milliner in the 2013 NFL Draft if he was eligible.

Check out what some of the top talent evaluators had to say.



Also, Roby reportedly ran a 4.24 40-yard dash in preseason, and that speed would be exactly what you want in a press-CB. To me, Roby is basically a taller, more talented version of Cortland Finnegan. He has a nasty disposition and he isn't shy about it. His top-end instincts, speed and production make him one of the four blue-chip players on my board and the Titans were lucky to get him.
