No one can say Jon Robinson and the Titans aren’t doing their homework on the wide receiver class.
So far, the Titans have used one of their thirty allotted official visits on John Ross, Mike Williams, and Deangelo Yancey, and spent time with Corey Davis at the combine (according to WalterFootball’s 2017 NFL Draft Prospect Visit Tracker).
Paul Kuharsky is reporting that the Titans have also met with Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin:

A growing favorite of draft analysts among the tier two prospects, Chris Godwin began garnering attention from the national guys after standing out at NFL combine last month. One report on his performance was particularly glowing:
[Godwin] answered questions about his long speed when he ran a 4.42 40-yard dash. He illustrated his strength and conditioning when he benched 19 reps, second most in the receiver group. His explosion was confirmed by a vertical jump of 36″ and a broad jump of 10’6″. His short shuttle time of 4.0 was the fastest of the wideouts, and highlights his ability to move laterally in and out of his breaks.
Godwin stands 6’1” and 209 pounds. The article linked above compares him favorably to Allen Robinson. He absolutely torched USC in this year’s exciting Rose Bowl shootout to the tune of 9 catches for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns. Check out his tape from that game if you are interested.
If the Titans miss out on one of the day one prospects, Chris Godwin could be a legitimate option as the solution to the Titans wide receiver problems.
