I never meant to cause you any pain..."
We are three days away from draft day! So close! It's happening! That doesn't mean we are safe from mock drafts and speculation just yet though. Mike Mayock is really digging the trade the Titans made with the Rams. He believes all of the picks have created a great opportunity for the team to build the roster around Marcus Mariota (maybe they can sorrund Mairota with some serious weapons?). Mayock believes the Titans may go offensive line (Conklin is his favorite for the Titans) with the fifteenth pick, or they will trade back up into the top ten.
Quick Hits: John Glennon looks at some draft needs for the Titans. First let's check out the offensive line.
Paul K looks at Jon Robinson's draft history of wide receivers, and he isn't a big fan. When Jon was with the Patriots he helped evaluate fifteen drafted wide receivers. None of which went higher than the second round. Several things could have gone on though: Maybe he pushed for receivers and none of them were taken? Maybe Brady being on the team changed things? Maybe trading for receivers like Welker and Moss changed things as well? I'm not too worried about it. He didn't have the final word on who was drafted or not.
Quick Hits: Now John Glennon checks out the wide receivers.
Jason Wolf breaks down the top ten Titans drafted in franchise history. I'd say it is pretty hard to argue with this list. Before some people get up in arms about the list: The criteria was the player had to be drafted by the Oilers/Titans and they had to have played in Tennessee. Floyd Reese also offers up some commentary on the players included on the list.
