A mock draft to look at while we wait for free agency news.

For the last week the Titans have been associated with every free agent on the market. Today the legal tampering period starts and there is no news to be found. That doesn’t mean nothing is happening. It just means no one knows what is going on.

While we wait for something on that, here is Dan Kadar’s latest mock draft. He has the Titans going Jamal Adams at #5 (love) and Mike Williams at #18 (hate).

Here are his comments on Adams:

The Titans are well-positioned for a trade out of the fifth pick, especially if a team wants to come up and get quarterback Deshaun Watson. If they stick here, Adams would be a smart pickup. He’s the draft’s best all-around player at a position that is becoming more and more critical (and expensive) every season.

And Williams:

Williams didn’t run the 40-yard dash at the combine, but during his media session he seemed to realize it won’t be all that great when he does. His vertical leap of 32.5 inches is more concerning considering his playing style is beating defenders to the ball. He still has good enough hands to warrant a high pick, and the Titans need a No. 1 receiver.

I am down on Williams at this point. I don’t care as much about his 40, but him not jumping well doesn’t bode well for the reasons that Dan mentioned.

What are your thoughts on this mock?
