99. Philadelphia Eagles (Via BAL): Tanoh Kpassagnon, DL, Villanova
100. Tennessee Titans (Via L.A. Rams): DeMarcus Walker, Edge, FSU
Walker can bring depth to the edge rusher position and also some much needed youth. There are several different things you would like about Walker watching his film: his hand usage, versatility to line up in multiple positions, and his power, but the thing I like most about him is his on field awareness. He does a very nice job of sniffing out the play and getting to the ball, whether it’s getting his hands up at the line, finding a running back in the flat, getting to the tight end over the middle, or reading the o-line to get to a ball carrier.
He will need time to acclimate to the NFL, but he should do a nice job in a rotational role and could develop into a quality starter.
101. Denver Broncos: Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama
102. Seattle Seahawks: Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
103. New Orleans Saints: Josh Malone, WR, Tennessee
104: Kansas City Chiefs: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC
105: Pittsburgh Steelers: Kendall Beckwith, LB, LSU
107: New York Jets: Stephen Taylor, Edge, Houston
108. Tennessee Titans (Via CLE): Howard Wilson, CB, Houston
Howard Wilson has the potential to be a stud in this league. I’m not saying he will be. What I will say is in three years from now he will be an above average starter in the league, if I’m wrong you can @ me and call me out about it on twitter @11_on_11. Wilson has the size and speed combo to cover any receiver in the league. He has good instincts and he’s quick to break on the ball for a pick.
I would like to see him learn to be more physical off the line, so he could get burned from time to time starting off by letting receivers have a clean release off the line. I could see him coming in and playing a rotational role right away. With this addition, the Titans would finally have solid depth at the cornerback position. It would look like this: Logan Ryan, Sidney Jones, LeShaun Sims, Howard Wilson, and Brice McCain. There could possibly be one more on the roster, but this is how the depth chart would read on game days.
124. Tennessee Titans: Shelton Gibson, WR, West Virginia or Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
For the people who want John Ross in the first round, Gibson is the next best thing. There’s a good chance he’s not here at this spot, but the Wide Receiver run started late in this mock. If Gibson wasn’t on the board I’d put Josh Reynolds in this spot. Gibson needs to improve his route running, but he has some real burners. When he is on the field defenses will have to stay honest.
Josh Reynolds brings a nice size/speed combo with him. He is 6’3 and a real red-zone threat. He doesn’t run bad routes, he just doesn’t run many different ones.
Gibson and Reynolds have very different games, but both bring improvement to the Titans roster. Like Howard did with the cornerback group one of these guys would bring some much needed depth to the Titans roster.
That’s the end of my three round mock if you haven’t seen my first two rounds go check them out and follow me on twitter @11_on_11 for more tidbits.
