Three positions that should have great value on Day 3

Three deep/undervalued positions the Titans should take advantage of on Day 3.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Tennessee only has six picks in this draft (right now). We all know this, and unless something drastic changes this will be more or less the truth depending on how active the Titans are in Day Three. Knowing that, it is important to remember where this draft is deep or where there will be some undervalued talent. Knowing this will help set the Titans up to make the right decision on Day One.

Wide Receiver

This horse has been beaten to death, and everyone knows just how good this class is here. Kiper and McShay had a record number of WRs going in round one, and while it could happen, I don't imagine that it will end up that way. If that is true then obviously talent will fall through the draft. Unless Sammy Watkins falls to 11 (impossible) then the Titans should realize that they are better off taking the value in the fourth. Jeff Janis could be a great target late.

Running back

This is going to be a draft where the first person that takes a running back is going to start the slide. Will the Titans take a RB in round two? Maybe, but if they don't it the slide could fall until the bottom of the second. If that happens, then someone will fall to the fourth round and present some really good value on a team that won't use a bell-cow back like they have in the past, but rather uses a running back by committee model. A player like Lache Seastrunk with tons of talent and questionable vision could be a good fit.

5-tech

There may be a few that go early, but once those teams have their 5-techs honestly you can get a good starter in the fifth. Jeoffrey Pagan from Alabama that shows a lot of promise (and has essentially the same highlight film as a highly touted player like Hageman) but is someone that never really got a chance to show his ability as a true 3-4 5-tech in college. The market for him will be small, and I would bet that Ray Horton wouldn't mind adding a smart, versatile DL from Alabama with a lot of experience.
