NFL Mock Draft 2016: Titans take Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans currently have the first pick in the draft, and there doesn't appear to be a franchise changing player at the top of this draft.  Awesome!  #NOT.  Again, the hope is that one of the quarterbacks, Paxton Lynch of Jared Goff, takes off in the pre-draft process is all we have.  That's the only way the Titans are going to parlay that pick into multiple picks.

With all of that being said, Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft put out a new mock draft today.  He has the Titans taking Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss.  His comments:

Drafting another offensive tackle just two years after taking Taylor Lewan with the 11th overall pick may seem questionable. But the chance to provide legitimate bookend blockers for Marcus Mariota could be too great to overlook. Tunsil got off to a slow start to the season while rehabbing an injury. However, he was on point as the season closed. Physically, he's more ready for the NFL than any other blocker in this year's draft.

Whatever. I guess he is as good as anyone else they could take at this point.
