Meet one of the future Tennessee Titans today.

If you blinked you may have missed it, but the Tennessee Titans hired two coaches last night.

The Titans have now filled two key positions, but that isn’t even the most interesting part of this news.

Those coaches, coached in the Senior Bowl today. All week they had exposure to some of the biggest mid-draft prospects in the nation. They saw them up close and got to evaluate them on a whole different level.

So it isn’t a stretch to think that when they get asked about their experience from Jon Robinson once they get to Nashville, they will have some unique insight on some players.

That experience and the chance to coach and talk to those players one on one, is a huge advantage to have. That is why I think the Titans will look hard at these players in the middle of the draft.

1. Shaquem Griffin EDGE, UCF

If Baker Mayfield got the most hype all week, Griffin got the silver medal.

Griffin has one hand, but damn can this guy produce. His effort, athleticism, production, and love of football is going to make it really hard for Jon Robinson to pass on him in Day 3 when everything is a gamble.

2. Marcus Davenport DL, UTSA

I am cheating here a little bit because I have also heard rumors that the Titans are going to try to poach the Texans DL coach too.

Davenport is a hype machine. Not saying he isn’t going to be good, but man people are so ready to jump on him becoming the next Calais Campbell that they ignore some pretty big technique flaws.

If the Titans trade out of the first round and are looking for someone to play some DE and DT for them (remember versatility is key for Mike Vrabel) then I think Davenport will get a hard look if he is still available.

Anything more than that should be too rich for Jon Robinson who doesn’t love projects.

Having said that, he slowly acclimated to practices and end up having a decent week culminating in a good game.

3. Harrison Philips DL, Stanford

The OL/DL do joint drills for a long time during Senior Bowl week. Harrison Philips wasn’t Mata’afa out there, but reports are that he did really well and that he consistently won with power both as a pass rusher and a run defender.

That power is something that is worth a look, especially if he trickles down to late Day 2 or early Day 3.

Philips is a guy who can give you a bunch of different looks whether you want him to play 1-tech/3-tech/5-tech, he can do all of that.

  • 4. Marquis Haynes EDGE, Ole Miss

    Haynes quietly ended up with a 32 sack career at Ole Miss and hardly anyone knows he exists outside of the draft community. His nearly 50 TFLs also show that he can make plays vs the run.

    We know that Jon Robinson is a sucker for consistency, production and guys who have started 30+ games. Haynes has all of those things in spades.

    He has played stand up on the outside and with his hand in the dirt. He probably isn’t going to hear his name called too early since he had his best year two years ago and he has sort of faded into the background.

    However, if you want a solid guy who is more Derrick Morgan than Brian Orakpo, Haynes would be a nice addition.

    5. Mike White QB, WKU

    The Titans need a backup QB pretty badly and White has the traits you want to see in a backup QB. What I mean by that is he was productive in college, has prototypical height, accurate, and aggressive but not stupid.

    White is a nice guy to invest in for a few years and then maybe you can flip him for some draft picks or a player when his contract is expiring.

    After a nice day at the Senior Bowl, it will probably cost you a 4th round pick but you have to like what he can give you instead of a guy like Matt Cassel.
