Tennessee Titans 7-round 2018 NFL Mock Draft


My first Tennessee Titans full 2018 NFL Mock Draft.

I talked earlier today about how the Tennessee Titans need to have eyes on free agency before anything else.

However, the Titans know that championships are built through the NFL draft and it is the most efficient way to bring talent into an organization.

So, with that in mind and with the power of Fanspeak, I decided to map out what the Titans could do in a full 2018 NFL Mock Draft with the needs as they stand now.

More from Titans Draft

Round 1, pick 25: Hercules Mata’afa, EDGE Washington

I’ll put some more stats of him along with the next pick, but there is no reason (on film) why Mata’afa should be anything less than a top-20 player.

People complain now about how there is little footage of him playing outside, but people weren’t freaking out when Haason Reddick drafted to play a position he didn’t play in 2017.

He is a star in the making from everything I have seen and his relentlessness, speed and technique will make Jon Robinson run to the podium.

Round 2, pick 57: Arden Key, EDGE LSU

Due to a shoulder injury and weight issues, Key never really lived up to his full potential in college. However he is still one of the more productive pass rushers in this draft.

With Dean Pees who has dealt with a lot of personalities in Baltimore and New England, and Mike Vrabel who has been proven to be a “leader of men” wherever he has gone you have to think that they can get the most out of Key.

By the way, with these first two picks the Titans have added two players that have combined for 41 sacks and 70 TFLs in their career in just 65 games.

Round 3, pick 89: Rashaad Penny RB, SDSU

Penny is sort of the poor man’s Sony Michel to me. He is a smaller back that plays with burst and there is value to that on a team that’s starting running back really needs a few steps to get to full speed.

Putting Penny in the backfield would give the Titans a better runner for designed cutbacks and probably even a better receiving back.

  • Round 4, pick 127: Josey Jewell LB, Iowa

    Sound. That is the best way to describe 90% of Iowa players, but maybe Jewell even more than most.

    Jewell isn’t a traditional Iowa LB, in that he isn’t going to have to come off the field on pass downs. He can hold up in coverage while also being a very good run defender.

    While he isn’t going to blow the combine up, he could be a guy that sticks around the NFL for 10 years because he is just so good at doing the little things right and he doesn’t have to rely on top-end athleticism to make plays.

    Round 5, pick 164: Michael Gallup WR, Colorado State

    In two years at CSU Gallup has shown that he was always ready for a bigger stage. He is a big play threat every time the ball is in the air and he was one of the more dominant players in that conference.

    The combine will be huge for him, but either way he would be a great Day 3 steal for the Titans.

    Round 6, pick 202: Quinton Flowers QB, USF

    Sneaky big position of need here for the Titans: backup QB. What I wanted from this position is someone who had some athleticism and was a “smart” QB that didn’t turn the ball over.

    Flowers has 2,600+ rushing yards over the last two years and over his career he has accounted for 112 TDs and only 23 INTs. So basically a 5:1 TTD:INT ratio. That is outstanding.

    I don’t expect him to be the next Jimmy G, but I think he would be a great player to groom behind Mariota who can start some games if you need him to. However long-term you are looking at him as a big trade chip.
