The raise your hand if you're a redshirt senior draft

Randy Gregory. Future Titan?

1.2 Randy Gregory DE/OLB 6'6 245 RS Junior Nebraska

- Gregory is a pass rushing force of nature. He's a dynamic athlete in the mold of a JPP. He fits the Titans' need for a talented edge rusher even with the possible return of standout OLB Derrick Morgan. The Titans need some help (to say the least) in bolstering their pass rush, Gregory would provide such help. The one big thing I do not like about him is that he disappeared down the stretch due to injury and ineffectiveness. Has the potential to be Aldon Smith lite (without the off field incidents).

2.33 Tre Jackson OG 6'4 323 Senior Florida State

- Jackson was the least heralded OL prospect on the Seminoles line but is a solid prospect in his own right. He also was named the Senior Bowl's Most Outstanding Player. Jackson is more of a road grader type than a technician. The line really improved along with him when Cam Erving moved to center to shore up that problem area. Like all Seminole OL prospects, he is well coached as Rick Trickett has put numerous guys into all conference/all-America teams and the NFL for a good while now.

3.66 Tony Lippett WR 6'3 192 RS Senior Michigan State

- Lippett had a standout week of practice at the Senior Bowl, including a nearly perfect gauntlet drill (a modified one from the one they use at the Combine). He's an excellent hands catcher, has good route running ability, and has underrated speed. Just knows how to get open ala Nate Washington.

4.97 Ladarius Gunter CB 6'1 200 RS Senior Miami

- In a copycat league which everyone is trying to recreate Seattle's Legion of Boom, Gunter fits the bill as a tall physical corner. He didn't do much at Miami (like many of his teammates) but could turn out to be a better pro due to much better coaching than he received in college. Miami is horribly coached and is a program on the decline. He also showed out in Mobile.

5. Anthony Jefferson S 6'1 194 RS Senior UCLA

- The obligatory annual Pac-12 pick that Ruston Webster loves to select. Regardless of what happens in the road to recovery from Bernard Pollard, some competition/depth is needed for the strong safety position with George Wilson getting up there and Daimion Stafford being relatively unproven (but he did show flashes in 2014).

6. Corey Robinson OT 6'7 344 RS Senior South Carolina

- Robinson did not make the trip to the Senior Bowl due to injury but had a solid two years as the main guy at tackle for the Gamecocks. He could legitimately battle for the starting right tackle spot with Michael Oher. A big body mauler with adequate agility to get to the next level. I'd compare him to Bryant McKinnie.

6. Hayes Pullard ILB 6'0 236 RS Senior USC

- Pullard is a bit undersized for the inside linebacker position but he's the type of guy that just knows to play. He's a above average athlete that can cover backs and tight ends with some success. Might have a better shot to stick on the outside due to size but his instincts are pretty good to stay inside.
