FanSided has completed their complete first-round 2014 NFL mock draft featuring editors from all team websites throughout the network. Titan Sized editor Joshua Huffman contributed as the Tennessee Titans general manager with the No. 11 pick. As trade-downs were prohibited, Huffman made due with what he had available on the board and someone whom he felt would interest the Titans brass, even if it’s not his favorite prospect:
The Titans are a primary candidate to trade back into the late teens. A new coaching staff with just six picks and no clear-cut favorite to go at No. 11 unless Khalil Mack or Jadeveon Clowney fell to them (won’t happen).
If the Titans can’t trade out of the pick, they’ll look at players such as Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA and Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina. Reasonable arguments are makable for both players. Linebackers coach Lou Spanos, who served as Barr’s defensive coordinator for the last two seasons, may get first crack at coaching up the highly-touted linebacker at the NFL level.
My preference is that they trade back.
