Tennessee Titans News Links: Drafting Sammy Watkins

Streeter Lecka

Your daily serving of Titans linkage!

Let it be known that I want the Titans to draft Sammy Watkins if he's there with the 11th pick, barring Mack or Bridgewater being there. He's absolutely my favorite player (along with Aaron Donald) this year. Drafting Sammy would make our WR core the best young group in the NFL, and very very explosive with great ability for YAC.

So if in the first round we took Watkins, who should we take in the 2nd? A RB of course. Tre Mason would be a scintillating pick as he's shown he can carry the load for a team, can catch out of the backfield and run really well. There are certainly later round options as well, with Jeremy Hill and Charles Sims as two very very good later round candidates. If you like the way Blount runs, you're gonna love Hill, and if you like Matt Forte, you're getting a do it all similar player in Sims.

Linebackers and Defensive linemen worked out yesterday, and some Titans draft candidates could include Kony Ealy, Khalil Mack, Kyle Van Noy, Anthony Barr, and Jeremiah Attaochu. Or hey, maybe a guy who gets cut by say, the Cowboys, like Demarcus Ware.

Ruston talks about marrying the combine and free agency and how he and Whiz are collaborating.

Whisenhunt goes into what the value of the combine is.

CJ still holds the combine 40 time record, although Dri Archer came really close.

Ruston says he'd like to take a look at QBs yearly. Then you can do what teams like GB does and trade those guys for draft picks or they become the starter. A guy I'd like us to get later on is Zach Mettenberger, as some scouts believe he could be the best QB in this years draft (although I'm not quite buying that, I think he could be very good).

The Titans re-signed Jackie Battle and interviewed one Tre Mason. Tre is so awesome, he breaks all the tackles. I do still wish Melvin Gordon had come out this year, as he'd be far and away the best back in the class.

Michael Roos shouldn't be forgotten says Wyatt, and probably locked up to an extension.

Anthony Barr said that if the Titans drafted him he'd "work very hard for us."
