Todd McShay of ESPN has apparently lost it. The Titans have some pretty big needs (that Lambert and I discussed on the podcast here) in this draft including EDGE, interior OL and maybe even corner. What they don’t need at all in the first round is a tight end.
So what does McShay have them taking in the first round of h is latest 2018 NFL mock draft (In$ider)? Yep, you guessed it; Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State. Look, I am sure that Goedert is a lovely person and a heck of a football player, but I would be willing to bet a lot of money, for recreational purposes only, that he is not who the Titans take in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Here are McShay’s comments on Goedert:
It isn’t a terrific tight end group this year, but Goedert is the best one in this class. He’s still a little underrated and didn’t get a chance to shine in the Senior Bowl, as he was injured on the first day of practice. You don’t get too many two-way TEs coming out of college, but Goedert fits the bill. He’s got a big frame (6-4, 260) with good speed and can play in-line or detached. He’s another good, young weapon for Marcus Mariota.
That pick was made with Harold Landry on the board. There is no way they take Goedert over Landry assuming Landry’s health checks out OK.
