Today is Monday (in case you didn’t know). That means Dan Kadar has put out an updated mock draft. He gave the Titans two defensive backs this week.

Jamal Adams, S, LSU was the pick at #5. Here are Dan’s comments:

A strong argument could be made for Ohio State star Malik Hooker here, but Adams seems like a better option to put next to Kevin Byard. If the two players carry a similar grade, the better fit is Adams.

That logic makes sense. I do have to say though that I listed to the latest Move the Sticks podcast and Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks made me fall in love with Malik Hooker. They compared him to Ed Reed (who I hate but would love to have a player like him in his prime).

Quincy Wilson, CB Florida was the pick at #18:

Wilson is built like a safety but he has the foot quickness and press skills of a cornerback. With that said, though, he’s proven to be adept at zone coverage as well. That versatility could be attractive for Tennessee.

Here was Blake Tucker on Twitter earlier today:

I have to agree.

What are your thoughts on this draft?
