Using a composite board from several different people including Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, Robb Rang, and others these are the collective top-25 players left on the board for the Tennessee Titans on Day 3 of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The highlighted players are those that play a position of need for the Titans.
1.DaQuan Jones DT, Penn State- Nimble enough to play as a 1-technique in the 4-3 and a 5-tech in a 3-4 look.
2. Martavis Bryant WR, Clemson- Athletic freak (6'4", 4.45 40-yard dash) that could entice the team that drafted Justin Hunter.
3. Kelcy Quarles DT, SCAR- Mainly a penetrating 3-tech, don't see a fit here.
4. Marcus Roberson CB, Florida- Very good corner that deals with injuries. Could bolster an already strong CB group.
5. David Yankey OG, Stanford- Versatile OL, though doesn't make sense for Tennessee.
6. Tom Savage QB, Pitt- Big arm QB that bounced around CFB. Needs time and coaching, but possesses the tools.
7. Bashaud Breeland CB, Clemson- Bigger CB with good potential that gets a lot of publicity, but isn't ready to start.
8. Carl Bradford DE/OLB, AZST- The top edge rusher on the board, Bradford is versatile, plays hard, and never needs to come off of the field.
9. Dakota Dozier OG, Furman- Good OL with experience outside, but not a great fit for Tennessee.
10. Bruce Ellington Slot WR, SCAR- Gadget WR that will try to earn a living in the Dexter McCluster role.
11. Trevor Reilly DE/OLB, Utah- Talented rusher but age (26) is an issue.
12. Jackson Jeffcoat DE/OLB, Texas- Very good pass rusher that came on late last year and regained his pre-injury form. Build and tape suggests 3-4 DE.
13. Jaylen Watkins CB, Florida- Brother of Sammy Watkins, with great ability but needs work.
14. Christian Jones LB, FSU- Linebacker that reminds me a little bit of Akeem Ayers.
15. Cameron Flemming OT, Stanford- Long-arm OT, but obviously not a need.
16. Shane Skov ILB, Stanford- Great timing blitzer who lacks athleticism.
17. James Gayle DE/OLB, VT- Sub-package rusher that would be a good rotational player in either the 3-4 or 4-3 looks.
18. Keith McGill CB, Utah- Huge CB, but age (25) and injuries are a concern.
19. Ka'Deem Carey RB, Arizona- Finishing running back that makes people pay, but not a need.
20. Aaron Lynch DL, USF- Huge talent freshman year at Notre Dame, transferred to USF and disappeared.
21. Chaz Sutton DT, SCAR- Probably beneficiary of Clowney at SCAR. Better fit in a 4-3.
22. Telvin Smith LB, FSU- Skinny LB that reminds me of an aggressive Zach Brown. Athleticism is great, but ? fit.
23. Josh Mauro DE, Stanford- Another probably 5-tech that would fit what the Titans want on the outside, good size (6'5")
24. Aaron Murray QB, Georgia- Showed improvement last year, but injury makes him risky. Not a guy you want stretching the field, his game is more based around intermediate passes.
25. Jonathan Dowling S, WKU- Confusing player that has a ton of talent, but he was dismissed from Florida and has some issues in technique (though everyone this far down has a few issues).
