NFL Draft 2015: Potential Titans' Targets at Picks 100, 108

The Titans hold six picks on day three. What will they do to kick off round four?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Through two days of the NFL Draft, Tennessee has used all three of their picks on the offensive side of the football. They've gone quarterback, wide receiver and right tackle, as expected.  The next logical addition figures to be an edge rusher or a running back.  When we get to day three, the picks become exponentially harder to project.

The three best players remaining on my board all come with some sort of baggage.  La'el Collins, T.J. Clemmings and Jay Ajayi are all surprisingly still available.  However, I don't think any of the three are options for Tennessee on day three.

It's unclear what is going on with the Collins situation, so NFL teams will likely stay away on day three as well.  I don't see the Titans or any other team tacking that risk.  Draft picks are just too valuable.

T.J. Clemmings' medical reports must be horrific.  He was a top ten player for me and his fall has me puzzled to this point. The stress fracture was discovered on April 24th, extremely late in the process.

Ajayi comes in at 34, but a medical report late in the process about his knees have scared teams off.  All three of these names make sense, but each comes with risk.

Here are a few names that I expect to be considered.

I said in my draft blueprint piece earlier this week that I would add a running back to start day three.  That hasn't changed.  There is some legitimate starting caliber talent out there in Mike Davis and David Cobb.

Finding a developmental pass rusher has to be on Ruston Webster's to-do list as well. Tennessee needs a number four pass rusher for some insurance.  Trey Flowers, Za'Darius Smith and Davis Tull make some sense at 100 or 108.

Josh Shaw, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Doran Grant figure to be in the mix as well.  I don't think that cornerback is a huge need, but each of these players would offer plenty of value at the top of round four.

Overall, I feel like Ruston Webster nailed the top of this draft.  I didn't love the Poutasi pick, but adding Dorial Green-Beckham and getting two additional picks in the process was a home run.  My guess is that pass rusher and running back are the selections to start day three.
