Mel Kiper 2014 NFL Mock Draft

New, comments

Mel Kiper has put out a new mock draft today.

The Hair has a new mock today (In$ider) with two rounds.  This mock features two picks for the Titans that he has not given them before.  That is always exciting.

In the first round, he had the Titans taking Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma St.  His analysis:

If I'm Tennessee I'm taking a hard look at drafting Teddy Bridgewater right here, but this is a mock draft and not "Mel's draft." The Titans took a hit at cornerback with the departure of Alterraun Verner and Gilbert will come in as an experienced player -- he was great as a sophomore and added two more years on top of that -- who also offers some spark in the return game. Gilbert was exceptional in workouts, and offers good size to match up against the growing list of big NFL wide receivers.

Gilbert is not worth the eleventh pick. Hopefully the Titans won't reach here just to fill a need.

In the second round he had the Titans taking Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU. His analysis:

Jake Locker is not only going into the final year of his rookie deal, he does so under a new head coach. Ken Whisenhunt may want to have a QB of his own choosing to develop, and Mettenberger's limited mobility is balanced by the best arm strength in the draft, and a quick recovery from his torn ACL has pushed him back into this range. If you saw Mettenberger at his best in 2013, you'd never assume this was too high for him to go in the 2014 NFL draft.

Greenlaw and Trevor will never be the same if this happens.
