New, comments

Do the Titans have another trade in them or do they stand pat after the blockbuster last week?

Leonard Floyd. Future Titan?

1.15 Leonard Floyd 6'6 244 OLB RS Junior Georgia

-  The SEC's most versatile pass rusher over the past couple of seasons. He came on like gangbusters in 2014 but faded somewhat in 2015 after changing positions. Arm length is very good. First step is one of the better ones in the nation. Agility is very good as well. Pass rushing dynamo that can serve as Derrick Morgan insurance just in case Captain has an injury like last year. Could be Aldon Smith 2.0 his rookie year before breaking out in year 2 as a complete linebacker.

2.33 Kendall Fuller 5'11 187 CB Junior Virginia Tech

- When healthy, he can make an argument that he is one of the best cornerbacks in the nation. He has impressive NFL/NCAA bloodlines as he's the youngest brother of the Fuller clan that were Hokies and went on to the NFL. There is also a Titans connection as oldest brother Vincent was a 2005 draft pick. Kendall might the best of the family, which is saying something because Kyle was pretty good during his rookie year in 2014. Instincts and fundamentals are excellent. Athleticism is very good as well. He has the speed to keep up with the faster receivers and plays bigger than his measurements

2.43 Le'Raven Clark 6'5 316 OT RS Senior Texas Tech

- Clark participated at the Senior Bowl where he had a good week of practice. He's not the system tackle that everyone is making out to be given the Air Raid offense that the Red Raiders run. Possesses a good base and very quick feet. Ability to quickly adjust to his defender is above average. A road grader type that can blast open holes in the run game with some limitations in the pass block game. An ideal fit for a transition to right tackle. Reported Combine interview by the Titans.

2.45 Austin Johnson 6'4 314 NT RS Junior Penn State

- With the Johnson selection, the Titans get a bona fide big body 3-4 nose tackle to build around. They also have a Penn State buddy for current Titans defensive lineman DaQuan Jones. Johnson wasn't asked to do much in terms of pass rush but he is more than capable of doing so. Primarily deployed as a space eater NT type to free up plays for his DE friends (mainly Carl Nassib). Work ethic and character are impeccable. Ball skills and instincts are above average. His game is similar to Angelo Blackson in a way. With Al Woodz' signing, Johnson could be developed at his own pace and start out as a depth player before taking over full time.

3.64 Darian Thompson 6'2 208 S RS Senior Boise State

- He kept up stride for stride against some of the faster receivers without losing much at all. Ball location skills were on point during every drill. He got to almost every ball thrown his way. Impressive prospect with a great week against the big boys in Mobile. In the running for best safety in the class. Thompson is a true ball hawk, snagging 16 interceptions total in his college career. The heir apparent to recently signed Rashad Johnson. He could have a similar career arc of current Titans S Daimion Stafford in that he could take a year to learn the system, get adjusted to NFL life, and perform admirably when called upon in spot duty. A prospect the Titans have met with as well.

TRADE - The Titans trade 3.76 to the Cowboys for 4.101 and 6.189. Dallas subsequently selects their QB of the future in Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott.

4.101 Keyarris Garrett 6'3 220 WR RS Senior Tulsa

- Garrett is a big body possession receiver type that really blossomed under Tulsa HC Phillip Montgomery's watch. The Golden Hurricane ran a system similar to that of Baylor's as Montgomery was previously Baylor's OC before taking the head job at Tulsa. After three so so years, he blew up his senior season, posting 1,588 yards on 96 catches along with eight touchdowns. Not the best athlete in the world in terms of raw speed. He's a long strider that takes some time to get going. NFL bloodlines as uncle David Mims had a decent career with the Atlanta Falcons. Another reported Titans target.

5.140 Sebastian Tretola 6'4 317 OG RS Senior Arkansas

- Tretola is a massive mountain of a man and an ideal fit for the guard position. He had a great week in Mobile. Physically dominant run blocker. Pass block game is above average but his bread and butter is the run game. Arkansas got a lot of run block practice in with their run heavy system and Tretola benefitted greatly. Also if you need to run a trick play, Tretola is your man. A steal in the fifth round.

6.189 Keith Marshall 5'11 219 RB Senior Georgia

- Marshall had a good Combine, wowing everyone with an electrifying 4.31 40 yard dash while looking good during the drills. He didn't have a whole lot of production at Georgia, thanks to one Todd Gurley and incurring a host of injuries. A former highly touted prospect in his own right but the medical history is very scary. Chose not to file an appeal for a fifth year of eligibility and decided to enter the draft. If he's healthy, he could push for some playing time as a backup to the recently acquired DeMarco Murray. He apparently checked out fine during the medicals at the Combine. Worth a sixth round flier to see if he can overcome the injuries and make a roster spot for himself.

6.193 Antonio Morrison 6'1 232 ILB Senior Florida

- Morrison had a great week at the Senior Bowl. He was one of the better ones not named Jordan Jenkins (UGA). Showed an ability to cover sideline to sideline and versatility by picking off a pass while playing outside linebacker. The defensive general in the middle for the Gators talented defense. Underrated prospect due to the putrid Gators offense forcing the defense to stay on the field on a near constant basis. Quintessential modern day linebacker. The Titans can place him next to Avery Williamson and forget about the ILB spots for the next 3-4 years. Morrison gets knocked down to the sixth round due to his medical history.

7.222 Lawrence Thomas 6'3 286 DE RS Senior Michigan State

- Thomas was the other guy opposite all everything end Shilique Calhoun. He's a good prospect in his own right. Consistent motor and work ethic are a plus. Willing to do the dirty work. Size may bump inside on certain situations. The Titans do have an interest as it's been reported that he had a workout scheduled with them.
