Trade

The Bills in their need for a QB since railroading Tyrod Taylor out of town, trade up to get their QB in an effort to get in front of the rival Jets, who also need a fix at the position.

Bills trade 1.10, 2.44, 5.172, and a 2018 4th

Titans trade 1.5 + 2018 6th

1.10 Corey Davis 6'3 213 Senior WR Western Michigan

-  Davis is one of the best route runners in this class. He has an arsenal of tricks and feints like a veteran NFL receiver should to get open. Football IQ is outstanding. Knows where the first down sticks are and always seems to get to them. Fires off the ball very well and has deceptive speed and agility. A perfect WR #1 for young Marcus Mariota to grow up with. Davis fits the MO of what Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey want in their receivers.

1.18 Tre'Davious White 6'0 184 Senior CB LSU

-  The best corner in the SEC not wearing an Alabama jersey. White had a breakout 2016 campaign being the main man in the traditionally stout Tigers secondary. He could've gone early in the draft last year but decided to return to school. Had a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl. The Titans begin their retooling of the much beleaguered secondary with White leading the way.

2.44 Budda Baker 5'10 192 Junior S Washington

- The Huskies' best defensive prospect this year. Baker can play both corner and safety. He is on the smaller size for a safety. Pass coverage is a plus asset. Possesses an center fielder mindset and will get to most balls thrown his way. Agility is excellent and can turn his hips on a dime. J-Rob visits the Great Northwest and plucks a dynamic athlete to set the safety position for at least 5 years or so.

3.69 Bucky Hodges 6'6 245 RS Junior TE Virginia Tech

- The Titans select Hodges to be Delanie Walker's understudy and eventual heir to the throne. He's a very good athlete for the position. A big play specialist with the knack of being in the right place at the right time on most occasions. A willing blocker that tries hard despite some fundamental issues. Ball skills are a plus. A former HS QB that transitioned to TE so he should be on the same page with Mariota from the get go.

3.83 Rasul Douglas 6'2 204 RS Senior CB West Virginia

- Douglas is possibly the most underrated corner in this year's class. He's the veteran leader of the stingy Mountaineers defense that led the Big 12 in most defensive categories. A tall and lanky corner with plus athleticism. Has shut down nearly every receiver that has dared to face him. Instincts are a major plus. A ball hawking corner that tied for the national lead in interceptions. Douglas had a solid outing in Mobile. A bigger corner that can match up with the big receivers in today's NFL.

4.114 Chris Godwin 6'1 205 Junior WR Penn State

- Last seen at the Rose Bowl ripping apart USC's secondary. A polished route runner with great ball skills. Godwin is a go to big body in the red zone type that has deceptive speed. The Titans continue revamping their receiving corps here with another Mularkey type of receiver.

5.159 Josh Carraway 6'4 250 Senior DE TCU

- The latest in a long line of great defensive line prospects from the Horned Frogs factory. He has the athleticism to play both outside linebacker and enough power to slide down to end on certain downs. Frame is ideal to add on more weight as well. Hidden gem of the class as TCU had a "retooling" year. Tennessee picks up more depth at end and outside linebacker here in the fifth.

5.172 Marquel Lee 6'3 230 Senior ILB Wake Forest

- Lee is one of more underrated prospects in the ACC due to Wake Forest's status as a program. He's a durable four starter that is a tackling machine. Instincts are above average. Athleticism is a plus. A Dick LeBeau special here. He definitely upgrades the depth behind Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard. A guy who can play sparingly during his rookie year and makes noise during his second like most Steelers linebackers under LeBeau.

7. Kyle Kalis 6'5 305 Senior OG Michigan

- Kalis has had an interesting offseason process. He went to the Shrine Game and got promoted to the Senior Bowl. Kalis was part of a revitalized Wolverine offensive line that led the way to an Orange Bowl berth. He's an underrated athlete that can move several large people. Footwork is above average. Hand usage is a plus. The Titans add another piece to the depth chart that OL coach Russ Grimm can develop into something.
