As draft season starts to come to a close, the Titans are hosting two more prospects in Nashville today. According to Ian Rapoport, receiver Marquise Brown and edge rusher Clelin Ferrell are each visiting with the Titans today.
Both Brown and Ferrell are expected to come off of the board in the mid to late first round.
The Titans have done their homework on several receivers in this class. They’ve been connected to N’Keal Harry, Deebo Samuel, JJ Arcega-Whiteside and several others. You can officially add Brown to that list.
Brown’s situation is unique in that he’s coming off of a Lisfranc injury, which sidelined him during the combine. Adding to that, concerns about his size are warranted at just 5-9, 166 pounds. There’s no denying the instant impact he could bring with his electrifying speed, it’s just the long term durability that you worry about with Brown.
Ferrell makes some sense as a Jon Robinson type player with two outstanding years of production. He registered 9.5 and 11.5 sacks in his final two years at Clemson, racking up 38 tackles for loss during that span. We’ve seen him value production at nearly every position in the draft, which is why Ferrell could be a very real option if he makes it to pick 19.
