Who will the Titans take at pick 15?

New, comments

This changes everything.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Months upon months of Tunsil vs. Ramsey talk just went down the drain. The Rams just pulled off the impossible, jumping from fifteen to one. Jon Robinson will now have a boatload of picks to rebuild this roster.

The Titans now pick at 15, 33, 43, 45, 64, 76, 140, 193, 222.

So who can we expect to be in play at 15? It's far from cut and dry, but we can at least try to connect some dots. The needs haven't changed, so expect the same positions to be in play. Also don't rule out a trade up from 15. Robinson has plenty of capital to go virtually anywhere he wants in this draft.  For now, we'll discuss pick 15. Here's who I think could be in play.

Offensive tackle

Ronnie Stanley: There have been plenty of rumors about Stanley slipping. I personally don't think he gets past the Giants at ten, so he could be a trade up target. The Titans have done their homework on Stanley, too. They showed up in force at the Notre Dame pro day.

Jack Conklin: The buzz on Conklin has been positive lately and this fits his range. He's a true power right tackle that lacks a little athletic ability in pass protection. The Titans have visited with Conklin.

Taylor Decker: The 6-7, 310 pounder would fit at right tackle nicely. He's well versed in the run game, but has some work to do in pass protection. It's interested that the Titans have been to Columbus, but have yet to be connected to Decker.

Jason Spriggs: Spriggs might be the second most athletic tackle behind Laremy Tunsil in this class. I've seen everything from 16 to 2nd round on him, so he's worth keeping in mind.

Wide Receiver

Laquon Treadwell: Titans fans living in SEC country know Treadwell well. He should be in play here and the Titans are looking at gobs of receivers already. I certainly wouldn't rule him out. However, the Titans haven't been connected to him to this point.

Josh Doctson, Corey Coleman: These are the other two receivers I'd be comfortable taking here. The Titans haven't visited or worked out with either, but they have to be considered here.

Cornerback

Mackensie Alexander: Alexander is the only corner the Titans have been connected to in this range. Look for them to get in on Vernon Hargreaves and William Jackson too.

Potential Wildcards

Shaq Lawson: This should be the only pass rusher in play for the Titans. It would be a strange fit right off the bat, but the Titans have met with Lawson already.

Myles Jack: It's all about the medicals here. If he starts slipping he could be a fascinating risk/reward selection in the middle of the first round.

Darron Lee: Lee is a smaller, speedy linebacker that the Titans have been connected to. We've seen him go as high as tenth overall in some mocks, so there's a chance he could be in play here.

Any of the interior defensive lineman: Andrew Billings, Vernon Butler, Jarran Reed, Chris Jones all come to mind. It's tough to project where they'll go because the class is so deep, but the Titans have done their homework in this area.

My best guess right now? I think they have to go with a right tackle. They won't get Tunsil, but they can still pick from that second tier group. I would say either Jack Conklin or Taylor Decker *if* the Titans stay at 15.
