Tennessee could go in a lot of different directions with their first round pick. If outside linebacker isn’t one of them, though, they could still land a quality outside rusher in round two.
Crichton is one of several that should be readily available, although his stock is rising thanks to a strong NFL Combine showing. While Crichton needs to work on his block shedding and overall consistency, his ability to power through defenders is quite impressive. He routinely found himself in the opposition’s backfield in college, and even when he wasn’t finishing plays for yardage loss he was still highly disruptive. He’d be a welcome addition to the new Tennessee 3-4 scheme if still hanging around in round two.
