The final dominoes in the 2017 NFL Draft fall for the Tennessee Titans.
I wasn’t going to do this, but this quote from Jon Robinson spurred me to do a final mock draft for the Tennessee Titans.
Alright Jon Robinson. Let’s put your money where your mouth is. Here is a Day 3 mock draft based entirely on defenders.
Round 5, pick 164: Xavier Woods S/CB, LT
Round 6, pick 200: Howard Wilson CB, Houston
Round 6, pick 214: Ejaun Price EDGE, Pitt
Round 7, pick 236: Hunter Dimick EDGE, Utah

- Tennessee Titans suspiciously quiet about major draft need
- 3 needs that are being overblown by Tennessee Titans fans
- Tennessee Titans must be careful trading down in the 2023 NFL Draft
- Tennessee Titans should only spend their premium draft picks on offense
- Tennessee Titans connections may be crucial for a draft day trade
Those are guys that I could all see going anywhere from the top of the 4th all the way down to the 7th round.
This year, Day 3 is unlike any other in recent Tennessee Titans history. With special teams largely settled, it is time to take big swings and try to get potential stars that slipped through the cracks.
Woods is a dynamic athlete who has 51 career starts under his belt. He also has the positional versatility that the Tennessee Titans want as well as the ball production (32 PBUs, 14 INTS)
Howard Wilson is a bigger cornerback who ran an impressive 6.68 3-cone drill and though his ball production and career starts aren’t exactly what you would like based off of Titans history, again this is time to take swings.
Ejuan Price is 6 years removed from high school which is insane, but in the 4 years he played he amassed 29.5 sacks and 53 TFLs thanks to his impressive athleticism and burst.
Dimick isn’t the athlete that the Tennessee Titans have targeted so far in this draft, but like Price he also has 29.5 sacks. Production at this point in the draft makes a lot of sense and has been praised for his energy and toughness.
