During mock draft season, there are hundreds of different outlets that publish projections. Here’s some of the most notable mocks out there.
With free agency getting its second wind and most teams having plugged holes in their rosters, mock drafts are going to become even more prevalent. And they will change dramatically considering teams’ needs will change once free agency is nearly done. The Tennessee Titans have signed two defensive starters, three special teamers, a nose tackle, and re-signed some depth pieces. You’ll start to see those signings affect mock draft picks for the team…or not.
Pick No. 5: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
Pick No. 18: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State
Kelly has the Titans taking no chances and drafting Davis at No. 5. It’s tough to bank on Davis falling to No. 18, so I’m not sure the Titans will be able to do that come draft time. The lesser-hyped product of the Ohio State secondary, Conley is a legitimate first round prospect. Wide receiver and cornerback are still the two biggest needs for the Titans, so getting a playmaker at each position to start the draft would be wonderful.
Pick No. 5: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State
Pick No. 18: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan
Like Kelly’s mock, Kadar has the Titans getting their guy in Davis at No. 18 and Conley’s more talented cornerback partner in Lattimore with No. 5. As of right now, this might be the ideal first round start for the Titans. The problem, as I mentioned above, is whether Davis will fall to that second first round pick. Kadar has that happening, but mock drafts and the actual draft never coincide.

Pick No. 5: Jamal Adams, S, LSU
Pick No. 18: John Ross, WR, Washington
Brugler still has the Titans taking a safety, even though Johnathan Cyprien has been signed to play strong safety alongside Kevin Byard and Da’Norris Searcy is still on the roster. I have a hard time believing the Titans will draft a safety that high after the Cyprien signing. The Ross pick makes a lot of sense, especially considering that the Titans wanted Brandin Cooks, who’s a similar player, for the offense.
Pick No. 5: Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State
Pick No. 18: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson
I’m a huge fan of Norris’ work, but he’s had these same two picks for the Titans in all three of his mock drafts and hasn’t budged regardless of news about both players coming out and the Titans adding Cyprien. Like I said with Brugler’s pick of Adams, I don’t see how the Titans take a safety at No. 5 unless they see Cyprien as more of an inside linebacker than strong safety or they don’t like Kevin Byard as much as we think they do.
