Who should the Tennessee Titans draft with the No. 11 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? Anyone who has been checking out the mock drafts will know that expert mock drafters have many different opinions.

Quarterback, tight end, offensive tackle, linebacker, cornerback, safety…I’ve seen fans discuss their desires for wide receiver and defensive linemen. Maybe you’re like me and “Should the Titans Draft: Trade Down” would have a draft interest of “very high.”

I’ve figured a list of more than one dozen prospects whom are potential candidates with the Titans’ first-round draft pick. I’ll attempt to look over each one and see which players are the best fit for this franchise. Some of that falls on how much time I have between now and the 2014 NFL Draft (May 8-10).

This series started with Anthony Barr and Aaron Donald. Our next preview leads us to Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina.

Check out part of this scouting report from NFL.com’s Nolan Nawrocki.

Highly athletic, highly productive “F” tight end dripping with upside and mismatch capability. Ebron might not be in the “freak” category, but his speed, movement skills, hands and run-after-catch skill puts him in the next tier, as he has ample ability to be a playmaker at the next level. (FULL).

Much commotion has been made about drafting Anthony Barr because of his connections with former UCLA defensive coordinator and current linebackers coach Lou Spanos. What about a tight end who, as a junior, broke Vernon Davis’ ACC record for receiving yards (875)? Put him on a coaching staff that features three former tight end coaches, two of whom played that position professionally.

It’s an intriguing idea. Add in a quality veteran like Delanie Walker? Let’s consider some pros and cons with taking him at No. 11.
