The SB Nation NFL writers are currently re-doing the 2017 NFL Draft. As of this writing only the Cleveland Browns have made their pick, and they selected, of course, Patrick Mahomes. You might remember that the Titans had the 5th and 18th pick in the first round of that draft. They originally selected Corey Davis at 5 and Adoree Jackson at 18.
I am going to assume that someone will take Deshaun Watson before #5 as you have the 49ers, Bears and Jaguars with the next 3 picks. Watson would be an upgrade at QB for all 3 of those teams. I would take Watson if he were to fall to me, but that isn’t likely to happen.
My current lean at 5 is probably JuJu Smith-Schuster. Just think about plugging him into this current team instead of Davis, and I am not ready to declare Davis a bust just yet.
There is also a chance that Myles Garrett falls there with everything that has happened with him in the past year. He would be tempting, but I am going all in on offense in this one.
The more interesting pick will be at 18. I know running backs don’t matter #allegedly, but it would be really tempting to take Alvin Kamara there if he is still on the board. He would be the perfect guy to pair with Derrick Henry. Can you imagine this offense with both Smith-Schuster and Kamara??
I will keep you update here as it goes along. Do you agree with my stance to work on bolstering the offense? There were plenty of other good defensive players in this draft like Jamal Adams, Marshawn Lattimore, Marlon Humphrey and Tre’Davious White.
