Kiper and McShay: Three Rounds of Titans' picks


Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Are you tired of mock drafts yet? No? Me either. Mel Kiper and Todd McShay held their annual head to head mock on ESPN last night, going three rounds. The two analysts gave the Titans quite the haul.

Kiper got the ball rolling with a bit of a surprise pick, giving the Titans Josh Doctson. I like his style here by not forcing a right tackle with this pick. Doctson would give Marcus Mariota a dynamic threat downfield. Kiper does mention that he would be calling San Francisco trying to trade up for Conklin or Stanley. I'd much rather stay put and hang on to those picks.

Kiper comes back at pick 33 with tackle Jason Spriggs. I'm not sure Spriggs starts right off the bat, but there's a lot of upside here. He's a converted tight end that has great movement skills. If he can add functional strength, look out.

The Titans get pretty good value at 43 and 45 with Emmanuel Ogbah and Mackensie Alexander. I'm not big on Ogbah, but I think Jon Robinson has to find depth on the edges. Alexander has been slipping for the past month as teams have apparently been questioning his attitude. I'll gladly take a risk on a talent like Alexander with multiple bullets on day two.

McShay gets in on the action in the third round, giving Mariota a pair of pass catchers. He goes Vannett with pick 64, giving Delanie Walker an understudy and bolstering depth. McShay ends the Titans' mock with Chris Moore, a receiver out of Cincinnati. Moore is coming on late this draft season. He really roughed up William Jackson in his game versus Houston.
