Second Round Picks with First Round Talent

New, comment

Wes Bunting wrote an article today over at National Football Post looking at guys that he thinks will fall into the second round but have what he calls first round talent.  There is a lot of talent on that list, and a few guys on the list that have interest to the Titans.  He has two quarterbacks, Jake Locker and Christian Ponder, on the list.  I have to think the Titans would be pretty happy to get either of those guys at #39.

Bunting has Muhammad Wilkerson on the list.  Wilkerson has been sprinting up some big boards recently, so I would be very surprised to see him last into the second round, in fact, Mel Kiper has said he wouldn't be surprised to see the Titans take him 8th

Akeem Ayers is a guy that Bunting has on his list that would also be of interest.  Really early on a lot of mock drafts had him going in the top 15, but he struggled at the combine, and Bunting says some NFL people question his mental make-up.  The Titans need some help at LB and might be willing to look past the questions if they think he has the ability to be a good player- of course that depends on what they do with the first round pick.
