Round 2, overall (32)- Josh Doctson WR, TCU
Drafttek ranking: 31
The Tennessee Titans have a developing talent in Dorial Green-Beckham. In two of his past three games, DGB has gone over 100 yards after not doing it once in his first 11. While he is far from a superstar, he has a lot of ability and his 6’6″ frame is a massive attribute if he continues to develop.
The Titans also have Kendall Wright who (when healthy) provides a spark in the middle and he can be a third down converting machine in the right system. While I think any hope of him becoming a number one receiver is probably out of the question at this point, he can still be a very important part of the offense.
And that is just about all the Titans have at the receiver position. With Mularkey likely on the way out, Harry Douglas is not a given to return. Tre McBride hasn’t developed like the Titans wanted, and the same can be said for Justin Hunter. Anthony Turzilli and Rico Richardson are the only other other receivers to really get any playing time this year.
That means there is a staggering gap in talent in the wide receivers and some changes need to be made.
Josh Doctson is 6’3″ and attacks the ball as well as anyone I have seen in the past few years except maybe Mike Evans. His ability to track the ball in the air and his savvy to set up defenders is first round quality. The only question people should have for him is if he is benefiting from his system, but after watching him thoroughly I think it is clear that he is a product of his skillset, not his system.
