The NFL draft is two weeks from today, and I couldn’t be more excited. Mel Kiper and Todd McShay did their annual “Grade A” mock draft and Kiper gave the Titans Dexter Lawrence, Deebo Samuel, and Ben Banogu. I love the 2nd and 3rd round picks but am pretty whelmed by the Lawrence pick. McShay gives the Titans Fant, Parris Campbell, and Jalen Jelks.
Jersey numbers were assigned to the new Titans. Gimel President gets #40, which I think is a stinky number for a pass rusher.
I’m not quite sure why, but Bucky Brooks has Marquise Brown as his WR1. If he’s healthy, then sure, but injury has to be part of the evaluation.
Kevin Byard makes the honorable mention of the future All-Paid team. Byard still doesn’t get quite the respect he warrants, but he’ll be the highest paid safety in the league very soon.
ESPN fixes one of every teams draft mistakes, and they hit on quite the sore spot for me, selecting Chris Jones over what was the Titans actual pick in Kevin Dud. What a dynamic duo Casey and Jones would have made. Driving that train, high on cocaine. Trouble ahead, trouble behind, for opposing QBs, amirite???
