Fansided.com released their weekly 2013 NFL mock draft and they’ve got a new pick for the Tennessee Titans this time:
While some say the Titans need to add a CB high, I’m am not of that opinion. I love Verner and McCourty, and despite it not being an awesome year for them, the defense was a bit of a mess anyways. The shuffling at the safety position and lack of a truly reliable safety, everybody suffered.
In this weeks draft, my favorite DE Bjoern Werner is already off the board, having been picked by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 2nd overall pick. That being said, MLB Manti Te’o is still on the board and doesn’t go until the Pittsburgh Steelers take him at 17. Plenty of people are starting to have him drop down their boards, but the reason hasn’t exactly been clear. He’s a big leader on the field, and if you couldn’t tell from the fact that he was in the running for the Heisman, he’s a pretty good player.
Whatever his flaw may be that’s causing this drop, it’s probably being over exaggerated. It’s the season of mock drafts galore and we’ll be seeing all sorts of players going up and down on boards. Add the combine to the mix, and things change pretty fast.
But back to the pick at hand… I’m not a fan of it. If the Titans were sitting at 10 with they way things are on the board, I’d be okay with trading back or with taking Te’o. Adding a CB when there are plenty of other positions needing addressing.
114 days until the draft.
