Todd McShay has released his 2nd 2017 NFL mock draft, and he did a really nice job for the Titans. Our good friend Terry Lambert has been on board with the Titans taking Corey Davis with the 5th pick for a while now (he wrote about the fit here).

Here is what McShay had to say about the Titans and Davis:

Talking to teams at the Senior Bowl, there's a lot of buzz about Davis. He has good size (6-2, 205), elite production and is a smooth route-runner. Davis won't run the 40 at the combine because of an ankle injury, but if he's in the 4.4s at his pro day as expected, he could be a surprise top-10 pick. Marcus Mariota needs more weapons on the perimeter.

With the 18th pick he had the Titans taking Sidney Jones, CB, Washington:

Alabama's O.J. Howard would be awfully tempting for an offense that features the TE heavily. But cornerback is far and away the Titans' top need, and at 6-foot and 181 pounds, Jones has great length and movement skills. While he needs to add strength, Jones is actually pretty physical for a smaller-framed guy.

McShay was wise not to not take Howard there with the way the Titans roster is currently constructed. However, if the Titans add a corner or two in free agency, a Davis/Howard first round would be AWESOME!
