Should the Tennessee Titans be safe or role the dice in the 2017 NFL Draft?
This isn’t a play on the deep safety class in this draft, the Tennessee Titans are legitimately at a crossroads in their rebuilding phase.
On one hand, the Tennessee Titans could easily see these two picks in the 1st round and 2 picks in the 3rd and think, “Alright, let’s go out and find the guys we know are going to be good and solidify the foundation of our team.”
On the other hand, Jon Robinson is not really one to play it safe. If he was, the Titans would have Laremy Tunsil playing left tackle and Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan playing out of position on the right side.
So, maybe they look at this draft and think, “We overachieved last year, let’s swing for the fences and hope we hit on 50% of our picks and they turn out to be huge impact players for us. Even if that means taking some chances and missing out on B+ players.”
I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out exactly what I think Jon Robinson will do, and like most GMs and fans I just have no clue.
So, the simple solution is to do two different mock drafts.
What I am going to do is go completely conservative on one draft, BPA, solid fits, high ceiling/low floor, good players.
On the other draft, I will take boom or bust guys that I think have a chance to be truly great. Some may have injury or character concerns, other could be from systems that don’t translate.
