Is this local sleeper a perfect fit for the Tennessee Titans?

Al Messerschmidt

Which player should tempt the Titans?

The Titans already have a very good blocking tight end that can be moved around from fullback to tight end to manipulate a defense. What the Titans don't have is a slight tight end that can blaze through the middle seam of a cover two and leave the defense in no-man's land. However, after this draft the Titans might just have that guy.

A.C. Leonard TE, Tennessee State

Leonard was a highly touted recruit, but some maturity issues pushed him out of Florida and into the arms of Tennessee State. Leonard is only 6'2" and 252 lbs. on him, but after running a 4.50 40 time (best among tight ends), vertical jumping 34" (third among tight ends), and broad jumping 128" (best among tight ends) his athleticism will have put him on many team's radars.

Tennessee gets the benefit of having Leonard come in for a workout without it counting against their prescribed number of visits since he is a local product. If the Titans like him, then he could be the sleeper in this deep tight end class that Whisenhunt and company can coach up. While he won't be Jimmy Graham or Tony Gonzales, he clearly has the athletic potential to be special, all he has to do is keep it together off the field.
