2016 NFL Mock Draft: Four Rounds of Titans' Picks

New, comments

Breaking down NFL.com's latest mock draft.

Chad Reuter of NFL.com released his latest mock draft over this weekend, going four rounds deep.  It's still so early in the process, but this is a fun look at how the depth of the 2016 class could play out.  Reuter focused on the defensive side of the ball for the Titans, giving Dick LeBeau plenty of new weapons.

Round 1: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

Tunsil is dominating the vote for the number one pick right now.  His tape is nearly flawless and he's set to wreck the combine later this month.  I love the idea of fixing this offensive line once and for all, especially with Marcus Mariota in the fold.

Round 2: Noah Spence, EDGE, Eastern Kentucky

If you followed any Senior Bowl coverage at all, you probably saw guys gushing over Spence.  The former Ohio State Buckeye lit up the Senior Bowl stage, proving he belongs in the first round discussion.  He has the athletic ability to rise through this process, but only if he can answer questions about his troubled past.

Spence would add another legitimate pass rushing option for Dick LeBeau -- a position that was needed last season when Derrick Morgan went down.

Round 3: Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia

This pick makes a ton of sense.  The Titans will likely be in the safety market once again this season and this class is full of day two safeties. Joseph would be a fan favorite instantaneously.  His massive hits are tough to miss, but his lack of size is concerning.  Joseph would probably start quickly at strong safety in the secondary, with Da'Norris Searcy moving to the free safety role.

Round 4: Chris Jones, DL, Mississippi State

Jones is a fascinating developmental guy.  His lighting quicks off the line of scrimmage jump off the tape at you.  He just needs to figure out what he's doing after that (pad level, hand usage.) Getting in as a depth guy and learning from his peers and coaches would be the best option for him.
