Two trades and a mock draft for the Tennessee Titans
By Will Lomas
So now we get to see the fruits of these trades.
Pick 14: Corey Davis WR, Western Michigan
John Ross is the first receiver off the board to the Buffalo Bills, but a hidden benefit of trading with the Philadelphia Eagles is that there is a really low chance of all three big receivers being gone by 14.
The value just isn’t there for most teams and the need isn’t there for others. That lands the Tennessee Titans, Corey Davis.
If you don’t know why the Titans should take Davis over Mike Williams, it is probably a matter of taste. I would prefer the Titans landing a Dez Bryant clone over an Alshon Jeffery clone.
If that is the ceiling of both players, I just don’t know why would want to take the more limited one.
Pick 18: Gareon Conley CB, Ohio State
I love Marshon Lattimore. However the chances of the Tennessee Titans drafting him are basically 0% based on his expected draft position an Jon Robinson’s secret formula for cornerbacks.
However, Gareon Conley may be my next highest rated cornerback now that Sidney Jones is injured. Here is my summary on my scouting report for Conley, forgive the choppy sentences:
“Conley may be one of the few CB1s in this class. He has the speed and technique to play man coverage, he can change direction quickly and closes on ball carriers.
I believe that an NFL team is going to take him in round one because he is essentially Marshon Lattimore without the run defense.
It is hard to stand out when you aren’t the best cornerback on your team, or even one of the top 2 defensive backs. Maybe Conley drew easier assignments or got more help than some other cornerbacks, but having said all that the tape shows that he can do just about everything you could ask.”
