Turn and Face the Strange: Titans Links from Jerlindsey

Titans Links!
It's time the Titans invested in an "elite" cornerback through the draft. The Titans haven't spent much "draft capital" on defensive backs in the past, but they have spent a lot of money on them. According to Paul Kuharsky, the Titans are ranked 31st in draft value for defensive backs, and fourth in money allocated to them, from 2013-2016. That seems to be no good. Currently the Titans hold the 5th and 18th pick in the first round of the upcoming draft. It would make a lot of sense for them to invest one of those current picks in a cornerback.

Quick Hit: Jonathan Allen visited the Titans.

Does Mariota's success change the scouting of "spread" QBs? Mariota was a "spread" QB during his time in Oregon, but Webster and Whizzbutt assured everyone he could play QB in the NFL. Mariota has shown he has a tremendous skill set since he entered the league back in 2015. So does Mariota's success change the way "spread" QBs are scouted? According to some scouts, coaches, and executives: he's an exception to the rule, and players are scouted on a "case-by-case" basis.

Quick Hit: The Titans hosted soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
