I have touched on this before in my other post: there are so many cornerbacks, and it is really a pick and choose game, all depending on what player a team likes. I was able to break down some players that I really think can fit what the Titans are looking for. With the recent allegations with some prospects, I think cornerback might get moved up the board as the top prospects continue to drop.
I had to start with one of my favorite cornerback prospects, Tre’Davious White, the four year man out of LSU. White has been known for his high character, work ethic and leadership. He is a player that can play great in man or zone and has also played some free safety. He is a senior leader, four year starter and versatile playmaker. I think this guy fits the mold of what the Titans are looking for in a cornerback.
The next that I loved to watch, when healthy, is Cameron Sutton, the four year starting cornerback out of Tennessee. When saying a versatile cornerback, Sutton checks all the boxes. He is a player that can play man or zone coverage and has great ball skills. Another cornerback that hits all the traits the Titans are looking for in a player.
The third prospect on my list is Sidney Jones, a three year starter out of Washington. Jones was a lock for the first round before an injury that could risk his rookie year dropped him out of the conversation. I think Jones has the ideal size, speed and ability to play the position in the NFL. He fits any type of scheme and some teams will still have him as the top cornerback at the position. His injury will have him fall on draft day and can be a steal for a team on day two.
The fourth corner, Chidobe Awuzie, is another four year starter who played at the University of Colorado. Awuzie is flying up draft boards because he has played not only outside corner, but also slot corner and free safety. This makes him a very versatile player and a hot commodity for teams. Draft experts have Awuzie being selected at pick 18 for the Titans and he would be a great fit for the Titans.
Last but not least, Jeremy Cutrer, a Middle Tennessee State product. The Titans love their local talent and I think Cutrer is someone that has been under the radar. What got him noticed was his great week at the Senior Bowl. Cutrer is a very solid player in coverage and is willing to stick his nose in the run game. I think Cutrer is a late round prospect that would be a great fit for the organization.
Next up is my second need for the Titans, wide receiver, which I think the Titans will select at least two of this draft weekend.
