2015 NFL Mock Draft: Seven Full Rounds From Matt Miller

Seven rounds in February is pretty impressive. Let's take a look at the Tennessee Titans picks in this mock, and see how we like it.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has released a full seven-round mock draft. I really like what he did early in the draft for the Titans.  With the 2nd overall pick, he had the Titans taking Leonard Williams, DL, USC.  Here are his comments on that pick:

Many expect a quarterback here, but the Tennessee Titans got a second-round talent in the sixth round with Zach Mettenberger last year. He may not be the future of the Titans, but he has enough talent and tools to work with for at least another season before the team gives up on him.

The Titans could build a dominant defensive line by putting Leonard Williams opposite Jurrell Casey, though. Williams is a special athlete and rare player at defensive tackle. He's also versatile enough to play in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense—something coordinator Ray Horton desperately needs to run his hybrid defense.

Having Williams and Casey up front would actually give the Titans a position of strength- something they don't have right now.

He has the Titans taking Vic Beasley, EDGE, Clemson in the second round. His thoughts on that pick:

Beasley is the edge-rusher the Titans are lacking and will be a third-down specialist from Day 1.

There were mocks early in this draft process that had Beasley going in the top 10. That was obviously a little bit ridiculous, but as Miller says here, Beasley can make an impact, even if it is just on third down, from day 1. Those are the guys the Titans need in this draft.

Here is how the rest of the draft played out for the Titans:

Round 3—WR Deontay Greenberry, Houston
Round 4- CB D'Joun Smith, FAU
Round 5- ILB Mike Hull, Penn State
Round 6- QB Bo Wallace, Ole Miss
Round 6- WR Dezmin Lewis, Central Arkansas (from the Patriots)

Bo Wallace is terrible and has no chance of being a NFL quarterback. Taking him in the 6th round would be a waste of a draft pick. Hopefully the Titans are smart enough to realize that.

There is no doubt that the Titans would fill a lot of needs if their draft went like this (of course it is easy to fill needs when you have needs at every spot on the field), but I would be thrilled if they were able to get those two guys at the top of the draft.  They would at least have some potential impact players on that side of the ball.
