6th round pick: Cayleb Jones WR, Arizona
6th round pick: Sebastian Tretola OG, Arkansas
7th round pick: J.T. Barrett QB, Ohio State
Why these players make sense:
There are a ton of reasons not to take people in the 6th and 7th rounds because of just how little talent is at the bottom of the draft. However, gems are found here every year and it is no secret that the key to winning games and getting into the playoffs doesn’t stop in the top three rounds.

With Cayleb Jones, he is a 6’3″ receiver who is quietly on pace for a 1,000 yard season. Marcus Mariota can do a lot with size regardless of talent, look at what he did with a player who had not done anything in his career in Justin Hunter.
Tretola goes along with my theory of amassing huge offensive linemen for Mariota to play behind. If the Titans really aren’t sold on Jeremiah Poutasi, Tretola is a player who is more proven inside with similar height and strength.
Barrett was still available late in the draft, and I am a believer in drafting a quarterback in every draft. Barrett showed a lot as a nice sized moving quarterback, and if the Titans want an offense that involves some roll out concepts he fits more than Zach Mettenberger.
If someone still wants to make a play for Mettenberger then this offseason is the one to do it as coaching likely turns over.
