Grading the Tennessee Titans offseason
By Will Lomas
3. Wide Receiver
What I said:
“I think Jon Robinson and company would want a true number one receiver, but there is only one in this draft class: Corey Davis.
Now, there are receivers in this class outside of him that do things well, and there are players in free agency who make a lot of sense. However, if I were in Jon Robinson’s head I would expect he is looking for game changing speed (he has said this before) and someone to take reps at slot.”
What Robinson did:
I don’t want to pat myself on the back too hard, but I nailed Corey Davis as a “Tennessee Titans” type of receiver before free agency even hit.
It just made too much sense to those of us who knew what Jon Robinson wanted and knew what Corey Davis could be.
Anyway, I thought the two issues Robinson would look to fix is a true WR1 and speed in the slot. Two of his first three draft picks were Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor which just hits the nail on the head.
Then to go BACK and get Eric Decker in free agency, makes this Titans group of wide receivers potentially the best since the Oilers became the Titans and maybe even ever depending on the rookies.
Honestly, any of the top four receivers on this roster would have been their top guy since maybe peak Kenny Britt.
