In preparation for the 2013 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans have been bringing in a few draft prospects for visits, amongst other players. Here are some of the safeties they’ve met/will meet with thus far, courtesy of Jim Wyatt:
- Matt Elam, Florida
- Kenny Vacarro, Texas
- J.J. Wilcox, Georgia Southern
The Titans have also met with the following prospects:
- OL Jonathan Cooper, South Carolina
- DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU
- DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida
They’re keeping their options open, obviously. They still have 16 days until the 2013 NFL Draft but I’m sure that they’re aren’t wasting any of it. The first few rounds of drafting could be key for the Titans this year as they look to break into the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
Mock drafts have the Titans taking a variety of different players with their first pick, including WR Cordarrelle Patterson, OL Chance Warmack, OL Jonathan Cooper, S Kenny Vacarro, and DE Ezekiel Ansah.
As you can tell from the lists above, safety and defensive line are two spots that they could be looking to bolster in the draft and are widely expected to address.
Our our writer David Fleming has been looking at some of the top prospects at each position as the draft approaches. Browse through some of his articles to get to know some of the players that could be future Titans.
You can also take a look at our recent 2-round mock draft a few of us put together. Things got a little crazy, but it’s something to help numb the brain until the draft arrives.
I know I’ll probably be beating my head against a wall until the Titans pick is called…
