What does the Kevin White visit mean for the Tennessee Titans?

Are the Titans just doing their homework or is there something more behind this?

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans are a few weeks away from one of the most important decisions they will make in the next three years: what to do at number two.

The most popular option between Titans fans and the media is that that Titans should trade that pick to someone in love with Mariota (Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, San Diego Chargers, etc.) or Leonard Williams (Oakland Raiders). The Titans are leaving no stone unturned, and are looking at a big name prospect.

Kevin White is the premier receiver in this draft (sorry Amari Cooper) and his length, high point ability and speed makes him as close to a Mike Evans clone as teams will get for a while. If this is all true and teams feel the same way, White could go as high as number three to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and will almost certainly go inside the top 10.

With that in mind, do the Titans think they have a trade partner that high in the draft? There have been a lot of rumors lately about the Raiders wanting to trade up to get their guy in Leonard Williams. If there is any substance to that, the draft could go:

1. Jameis Winston

2. Leonard Williams

3. Vic Beasley (who the Jaguars like a lot)

4. Marcus Mariota/BPA

If the Titans are in that situation and really aren't interested in Marcus Mariota, then the BPA on a lot of boards could be Kevin White. The Titans are desperate for some help at wide receiver, and as much as I don't like taking a WR/RB in the top-10, I can understand if they think he is the missing piece that will make this passing game work.

All in all, the Titans could do worse than White, but if they want him it better involve a trade down or the Titans are wasting a lot of potential draft value.
