We have spent a lot of time talking about how the Titans need a vertical threat to maximize the potential of the offense. While it would be great to see them get that guy in the first round, odds are that receiver is not where the Titans will be looking with the 20th pick. That means we need to take a deeper look at this receiver class to see which guys would be a good fit.

Joe Adams is the first guy that comes to mind for me. He ended up running an official 4.55 in the 40 at the combine, but there is no doubt that he plays faster than that. He was one receiver that really stood out at the Senior Bowl earlier this year.

Adams would be an ideal third round guy for me. His post college workouts have been pretty impressive, but the red flag is that he only had 652 yards and 3 touchdowns as a senior in a pass happy offense at Arkansas. He would be a project, but there could be a lot of upside there.
