So Barr and Donald are gone. Even then, there are many players who could provide assistance at No. 11. C.J. Mosley, Eric Ebron, Ra’Shede Hageman, Dee Ford, Gilbert or Dennard if they’re not confident in what they have now, or if Whisenhunt feels like Manziel is a long-term quarterback…
Most of aforementioned players (with the exception of the cornerbacks) are reaches at No. 11. An ideal situation would include a trade down with another team in the teens. That would allow the Titans to recover the mid-round pick that they lost in the Justin Hunter trade from the 2013 NFL Draft.
I’m not seeing an opportunity for that…yet. General manager Ruston Webster takes a “best player available” philosophy and adds more depth at cornerback.
