Tennessee Titans mock draft with with a few trades.
It’s no secret that Jon Robinson likes to trade, as long as it puts the team in a better situation to win. So, here I have a 7 round mock draft with trades included.
R1. P12. Corey Davis, Wide Receiver, Western Michigan
For this mock draft, I have the Tennessee Titans trading pick number five overall and pick number 100 overall to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for pick number 12 overall, 52 overall (their original second round pick), and pick 65 overall. The trade makes sense for the Cleveland Browns as they may need to get ahead of the Jets in order to get the quarterback they want if Chicago or San Francisco doesn’t take him. For this mock, Garrett, Adams, and Thomas all went 1, 2, and 3. If any of the aforementioned players are on the board at five, the Titans should stick and pick them. With this deal the Titans land a number one receiver and pick up some extra picks.

R1. P26. Takkarrist McKinley, Edge, UCLA
Instead of making one move in the first round, the Titans pull off another, sending pick number 18 overall to the Seattle Seahawks who need to move ahead of the Denver Broncos to get their choice offensive lineman. The Seahawks send over pick 26 overall, 90 overall, 102 overall, and a 2018 second rounder. McKinley only falls this far due to having to undergo shoulder surgery. He is very fast off the edge and has a wicked spin move. If Kevin Dodd can redeem himself, this pick could set the Titans pass rush up for years to come.
R2. P52. Sidney Jones, Cornerback, Washington
After receiving their first round pick back from the Cleveland Browns, the Titans find a difference maker for their secondary in round 2. Jones was a surefire first round pick and possibly a top 20 pick at that until he tore his Achilles at his pro day. He should start working his way back sometime around training camp, give or take. Below is what he had to say about that.
R3. P65. Desmond King, Safety/Cornerback, Iowa
Desmond King played the corner position at Iowa, but he has the size, hip flexibility, and ball skills to be a safety. So, King could potentially play multiple roles on the defense once he gets the playbook down. I would see him playing a rotational role with Kevin Byard at free safety, the nickel cornerback position, or as an extra defender on passing downs. He would translate very well into Dick LeBeau’s defense as he is an aggressive, physical, ball hawking player.
R3. P83. Cameron Sutton, Cornerback, Tennessee
Sutton would have been a mid to late first round pick if it wasn’t for an injury costing him most of the 2016 season. He has great size and a physical play style. He does a nice job jamming his receiver at the line of scrimmage and playing the ball in the air as well.
R3. P90. Jordan Leggett, Tight End, Clemson
Leggett has been a dependable target in his time at Clemson for Deshaun Watson and he has also shown capable blocking ability. Although he isn’t particularly great at anything, he is well rounded with a bit of athleticism, so there is some upside here with this pick.
R3. P102. Taywan Taylor, Wide Receiver, Western Kentucky
Taylor had a very productive college career; over the last two seasons he caught a combined 34 touchdown passes. He is explosive off the line and has the ability to make contested catches in tight spaces. He could be an above average rotational player or a solid number two if Rishard Matthews or Corey Davis went down.
R4. P124. Kyle Kalis, Guard, Michigan
There is a lot of upside here with Kalis. He has had plays where defenders couldn’t move him and others where he was only a mere distraction. With time to develop, he has the skill set to be a quality starter in the NFL. He also had a decent Senior Bowl week, where offensive linemen really struggled.
Inside the Iggles
R5. P147. Elijah Lee, Inside Linebacker, Washington
Here I have the Titans trading again, but unlike previous times the Titans have traded up. The Titans receive pick number 147 from the Chicago Bears after sending them pick number 164 overall, 214 overall, and 2018 7th round pick. After trading up, the Titans select inside linebacker Elijah Lee out of Washington. Most expected Lee to stay in school for another year, but he elected to enter the NFL draft. Lee is an athletic linebacker who doesn’t miss tackles and is decent in coverage. Another good value pick here for the Tennessee Titans.
R7. P236. Jake Elliot, Kicker, Memphis
No, I haven’t forgotten Ryan Succop’s game winning field goal to beat the Kansas City Chiefs. I also haven’t forgot he missed on his first opportunity. Succop is a below average kicker, and my mindset here was if you can improve a position in the 7th round no matter what position it is, do it. Elliot, who goes to school just down the street off of I-40, is an accurate kicker who has the ability to hit 50+ yard field goals and has never missed an extra point attempt.
