A possible target in the supplemental draft for Tennessee Titans


With the 2015 NFL Draft over and with no big free agents left, there is really only one way to add some quality talent at this point: the supplemental draft.

The supplemental draft is not that far off, and suddenly a name has emerged that makes a lot of sense for the Tennessee Titans. That name (and an awesome name it is) is Isaiah Battle.

Who is he?

Well, Battle is none other than the starting left tackle for the Clemson Tigers.

What is he?

Battle is a 6’6″ offensive tackle whose blend of size and athleticism has teams very interested in his potential.

    Well, to start he is in this situation because he was cited for marijuana possession and was reportedly told that this was his last strike. The Rotoworld article I just linked too also says that Battle’s official reasoning is the birth of a child.

    As for who vouches for his potential, Bruce Feldman says in a tweet that:

    #Clemson LT Isaiah Battle to Supplemental Draft..Am told he was ranked #2 OT among SRs behind Ronnie Stanley by a major NFL scouting bureau.”

    Why do the Titans need him?

    The Titans were in love with huge athletes in this past draft.

    Dorial Green-Beckham is a massive 6’5″ target that will give Marcus Mariota a huge target to aim at.

    Jeremiah Poutasi is a 6’5″ mauler who might project better to guard than tackle, but his physicality will earn him some time somewhere on the offensive line this year.

    Angelo Blackson is a 6’4″ 306 lb. defensive lineman that will likely see time behind DaQuan Jones and the other starters on the defensive line.

    Deiontrez Mount is another huge player they added at 6’5″ late in the draft.

    The point is that these guys are huge and the Titans are trying to be more physically imposing this season. By bringing in Battle, the Titans would add another 6’6″ offensive tackle to pair with 6’7″ Taylor Lewan. Jeremiah Poutasi could them put a lot of pressure on Andy Levitre to put up or shut up this year.

    What would it take?

    Many are saying that this is the first legitimate prospect to come out since Josh Gordon, so it will take more than a seventh round pick. In all honesty, these things are a crap shoot since it is essentially a blind auction. I would say that the Titans should put in a fourth round pick if they really want him, but that may not be too steep of an asking price.

    Considering how Zach Mettenberger doesn’t fit in the current offensive system, there is a strong chance that around the trade deadline some team is looking to trade, especially if someone like the Arizona Cardinals lose their starting quarterback. If so, the Titans could get their draft capital back and add another starter.
