Tennessee Titans insanely early 2018 NFL Mock Draft

ATLANTA, GA - DECEMBER 03: Minkah Fitzpatrick
ATLANTA, GA - DECEMBER 03: Minkah Fitzpatrick /

It is never too early to start thinking about the 2018 NFL Draft for Tennessee Titans fans.

Let’s face it, most Titans fans are addicted to the draft.

For nearly a decade that has been what fans look at while lucky teams are in the post season competing for a championship. While the Titans may be in that hunt this year, that still hasn’t stopped me from peaking ahead.

Until the Titans get to the point where they are consistently in the championship hunt like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks and of course the New England Patriots, many fans are going to be keeping one eye firmly on college football.

With no football on, I took a break from looking forward and took a look back at the 2017 college football season to look at some names that the Titans might be interested in going forward.

I went through and did a 2-round mock draft last night and was ready to go for today until I saw that Max Damach had already done an excellent piece on potential Titans targets in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Luckily, the picks I made didn’t step on the toes of his story which I wholeheartedly suggest that you check out.

So, using the Fanspeak mock draft simulator that I have come to know and love, here is what I landed with the Titans first two picks.

(NOTE: The draft position was locked in at 20th overall by Fanspeak)

Round 1, pick 20: Minkah Fitzpatrick CB, Alabama

If you watched Fitzpatrick last year you know that he is an explosive player. The All-American DB matches up with a lot of the things that Jon Robinson loves:

-Will probably play in over 40 games by the end of next year.

-Position versatility between safety/cornerback

-Highly productive player (8 INTs, 17 PBUs) that led the SEC in interceptions returned for touchdowns for two years straight.

-Active special teams player.

His length and dynamic ability with the ball in his hands would make the Titans defense an opportunistic threat to offenses.

Imagine being a QB and throwing a ball up for a receiver knowing that he has to deal with Adoree Jackson, Kevin Byard or Minkah Fitzpatrick in coverage.

  • Round 2, pick 52: Josh Sweat EDGE, Florida State

    What does Jon Robinson love? That’s right, a large volume of games played and productivity. Well, Sweat will be a junior this year but has a chance to hit nearly 35 games played in that time, which is well over his threshold for pass rushers.

    More importantly, he has a strong chance this year for double digit sacks. If he can get to 10, that would be 17 sacks in two years for an athletic EDGE player who looks to come to the combine at 6’5, 250 running a 4.76.

    That is almost a full .1 seconds faster than Charles Harris and Derek Barnett, who were both first round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft. It would put him closer to T.J. Watt who was 3 inches shorter and about the same weight.

    His run defense will probably push him down, but the Titans already have enough defenders who can stop the run, they need another that can rush the quarterback.
