Step 4: Draft a wide receiver in the second round, and the BPA in the third
Based on everything that I have seen, Josh Doctson from TCU is one of the best wide receivers in this draft and there is no reason why he shouldn’t be a first round pick. However, based on all the mock drafts and all the projections, I don’t know how he ends up making it.
Last year I thought there was no way that DGB was going to make it into the second round. Given his talent, athletic ability, and his production in just a short amount of time, it seemed like he was going to be a mid-late first round player who was going to go to a contender.
Fast forward six months and it looks like he should have been if you compare his recent performances to some of the other players around the league.
I think he is a great fit for this offense and I could see him being an A.J. Green-like player in the NFL. He wins with his speed, routes, hands, and ability to make plays over defenders.
In the third round, Matt Miller had several good, intriguing players that could help the Titans immediately.
Chris Jones DL Mississippi State: A player I really like as a 5-tech in the NFL. Overwhelming strength and plays like a poor man’s Fletcher Cox.
Pharoh Cooper WR, SCAR: Cooper is a very good slot wide receiver at the next level who doesn’t have prototypical size, but he does have great speed out of his breaks and that is something that people mistakenly think Kendall Wright has.
Derrick Henry RB, Alabama: The Titans have enough power backs as it is, but Henry in the third would be hard to pass up.
Vadal Alexander G, LSU: Historically, guard and wide receiver are the best picks in the third round over the last 10 years. They yield the highest amount of Pro Bowlers in terms of position, and Alexander may be the next SEC guard to surprise people in the third round.
Other names: Landon Turner G, Alex Collins RB, Cody Whitehair G, Max Tuerk C, Joshua Garnett G.
