Mike Mayock isn’t like most of the people that cover the NFL draft and put out a new mock every week. He does one mock each year and it always comes out the night before the draft. He has done his mock draft for this year and he has the Titans taking Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama. Here was his in-depth analysis of the pick:
This kid is a three-down linebacker who can come off the edge and cover the pass.
Most Titans’ fans will be screaming from the mountain tops for the team to take Josh Sweat, EDGE, Florida State if the draft plays out like this. I knew Mayock wouldn’t give Sweat to the Titans, because as we talked about on Locked on Titans last night (listen here), Mayock has Sweat in the 90s on his board. He obviously wouldn’t give a player he has rated that low to the Titans at 25.
Evans is a really good football player and would no doubt help the Titans. My guess is that Jon Robinson tries really hard to trade out of this pick if the draft plays out this way.
Would you be good with the Titans taking Evans in this scenario?
