Dan Kadar has put out his first post-free agency mock draft, and he has the Tennessee Titans taking Leonard Williams from USC. Dan has pretty much said that he is going to alternate between Williams and Marcus Mariota for the Titans. He should throw Dante Fowler, Jr. into the mix because he is going to be a stud, but what do I know?
Here is what Kadar had to say about the pick:
Tennessee has added a few starters via free agency, but still need a lineman like Williams to help elevate the defense to another level. Williams, the draft’s top player, is a dominating force up front. He’s relentless against the run and would help the pass rush. He’s not J.J. Watt -- nobody is -- but he can do many of the same things for a team.
What, exactly, does many of the same things mean? 75% of the same things? 50% of the same things? I have to say it again here, the only reason to spend the #2 overall pick of the draft on a 3-4 defensive lineman is if he is J.J. Watt- not some of J.J. Watt. Jurrell Casey is some of J.J. Watt, and I love him, but I would not take him with the 2nd overall pick. Give me a guy that has the potential to really disrupt the game.
