Which school are the Tennessee Titans taking a hard look at

New, comments

A school with a lot of talent, but not one you would expect.

As much as I may not understand it, the Tennessee Titans are looking very hard at the skill position players a Cal.

Before I talk about who exactly the Titans are looking at, it is odd to me that they are looking so hard at a group of skill players who played with Jared Goff, who is considered one of (if not the) best quarterback in this class. Some people would look at that group and think that in that "Bear Raid" offense at Cal with a talented quarterback, these prospects might be maxed out.

So, do they think that Goff under preformed or are they happy taking those players knowing they will likely never have similar production in the NFL. Either way, here are some reports of the Titans looking at those players:

Tony Pauline had these notes on Walterfootball.com:

"Receiver Trevor Davis went through position drills and look solid. He met with the Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions"

"Receiver Kenny Lawler had 40 times which were similar to his Combine marks, clocking 4.57/4.64 in the 40. His vertical jump improved to 33.5 inches, broad to 9-8. Lawler met with the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets today"

"Stephen Anderson improved his Combine times today, clocking 4.58/4.62 in the 40, 6.95 in the 3-cone and 4.13 in the short shuttle after measuring 6022, 230 pounds. He caught ball incredibly well, looking smooth and making a few difficult receptions. Some teams project Anderson as a move tight end, while others consider him a big possession receiver. Comparisons are being made to Jordan Reed.


Anderson met with the Tennessee Titans yesterday."

Rand Getlin actually says that Anderson will meet with the Tennessee Titans again in this tweet:

"I'm told TE Stephen Anderson has four workouts and/or visits lined up with the , , and ."
Anderson a senior, is 6'3" 230 lb. and projects best to an H-back role in the NFL. However, I'm not sure what exactly jumped out to the Titans, granted I haven't watched him. He has only managed 1,260 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns in his career, but Jon Robinson's eye for talent exceeds mine or 99% of others out there so I am interested to see if we hear any rumblings about him in the late rounds.
