Tennessee Titans fans pay attention, the man, the myth, the legend Mike Keith is speaking up.
Mike Keith has taken to the radio to talk about the Tennessee Titans. When he does that I listen, period.
Apparently, he said that he could see the Tennessee Titans trading not one, but both first round picks. That is a very interesting idea.
With that in mind, I immediately took to Fanspeak to figure out what a double trade in the first would look like in a 3-round 2017 NFL Mock Draft.

1st round, 13th pick: Gareon Conley CB, Ohio State
Here is what I ended up saying about Conley at the end of his scouting report:
“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 quickly. 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. ”
So, the Tennessee Titans end up with one of their top CBs and instantly have a much improved defense.
1st round, 17th pick: Haason Reddick LB, Temple
I believe that Dick LeBeau, Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey could all look up after watching Reddick’s film and think the same thing: Lawrence Timmons.
2nd round, 49nd pick: Jordan Willis EDGE, Temple
This draft fell terribly for me in the 2nd round, but I really like adding a 2nd round force player who can finally give the Tennessee Titans depth at pass rusher.
3rd round, 81st pick: Chad Hansen WR, Cal
I really like Hansen as a boundary wide receiver, very similar to Eric Decker.
This is a quick draft a put together. It didn’t fall perfectly, but I really like getting a stud cornerback and getting two guys who can rush the passers in completely different ways.
It also wouldn’t surprise me if the Tennessee Titans waited a little bit longer for wide receiver based on how closely Jon Robinson trusts the New England way of drafting wide receivers.
