2014 NFL Draft Results: Recapping the Titans picks

New, comments

The 2014 NFL Draft is in the books. Let's take a look at what the Titans ended up with.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Round 1: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

There was a lot of noise surrounding the Taylor Lewan pick. His off the field issues were certainly enough to raise some red flags, but if he can stay out of trouble off the field, he has the potential to be a franchise left tackle. Ruston Webster will look really smart for making this pick if that happens.

Round 2: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington

The Titans biggest need heading into this draft was running back. They had their pick of the litter with this pick, even after trading back, and they chose Sankey. He was a workhorse in college and should be the perfect compliment to Shonn Greene.

Round 4: DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State

The Titans didn't have a guy on the roster that could play the nose in a 3-4. They do now. It surprised me that it took untilt he 4th round for them to pick a defensive player, but Jones has the chance to be a good one.

Round 4: Marqueston Huff, DB, Wyoming

Huff was probably a reach in the 4th, but he is a versatile defensive back that can play corner or safety- but you know what they say....jack of all trades, master of none.

Round 5: Avery Williamson, ILB, Kentucky

Williamson was a very productive player in college in the best conference in the nation. He was second in the SEC in tackles over the last 2 years. He will be in the mix to be a part of the rotation at inside linebacker.

Round 6: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

This pick set Twitter on fire. A lot of people hate the pick because of the red flags, but I don't understand how you can hate getting a 2nd round talent in the 6th round. He might not amount to anything in the NFL, but how many 6th round players do? He might do something stupid off the field, so what? It is really easy to cut a 6th round pick.

Or, maybe, just maybe, he develops into a solid player that can push Jake Locker and ends up being the starting quarterback for this team if they move on from Locker after this season. I wonder what all of those people will be saying then.
