Todd McShay 2018 NFL mock draft 3.0: Doubling down on stupid

New, comments

Yep, still don’t get it.

NFL: Combine Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Todd McShay has released a new 2018 NFL mock draft (In$ider) following the NFL combine. He is doubling down on the Titans taking Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State. Here is McShay’s reasoning for the pick:

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 at the Senior Bowl or combine because of injury. His pro day will be important. 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.

I just don’t understand this pick. The Titans have a few legitimate needs. Tight end definitely isn’t one of them. Delanie Walker, even though he is probably in the twilight of his career, is still one of the better “two-way” tight ends in the league. Jonnu Smith showed a lot of promise last year as a “two-way” guy.

McShay has totally lost me with this one.
