2014 Draft: Tennessee Titans Pre-Draft Visits

New, comments

The Titans recently hosted and/or will be hosting more draftees.

The Titans will be hosting a slew of players for their pre-draft visits. These are always a good marker for who the Titans will be targeting when draft day rolls around, as well as giving fans the added look into what positions they are considering.

Here are the latest;

DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida State

Up there with the draft's best DTs. Jernigan is strong, and shows good awareness and hustle. He also features solid footwork, and was very productive in limited time (only started his last season). He lacks ideal anticipation for a top defensive tackle, but is proof that the Titans are considering all options on draft day, regardless of position.

OLB Anthony Barr, UCLA

One of the top outside backers in the draft. Dangerous potential as a pass rushing backer in the 3-4, but relatively raw and still learning how to play the run consistently.

OT JaWuan James, Tennessee

James is a pro-ready tackle Titans fans should be familiar with. He is durable and athletic, with impressive career tape. That said, he needs work in pass pro, and there were some conditioning concerns when the pre-draft process began. He has good feet and awareness, and after an injury at the Senior Bowl, he stands as an "under the radar" player at this point.

OLB Shaquill Barret, Colorado

A physical linebacker with a nose for the football. Notably clutch at times, with a knack for the big play. He lacks quickness at the point of attack however, and is somewhat of a liability in coverage. He could be a good option for the Titans in the 4th or 5th round as another player to possibly switch to ILB and play the run.

C, James Stone, Tennessee

Stone showcases quickness and versatility, and his ability to anchor the line shows well on tape. He's one of the best centers in the draft this year, but it would be a curious pick with last year's rookie Center, Brian Schwenke already on the roster.

The Titans also hosted some running backs, presumably to replace Chris Johnson who was released last week. That list includes Tre Mason, out of Auburn, Terrance West of Towson, and Charles Sims from West Virginia.
