The 2018 NFL Draft, Day 2:

Round one gets all the attention, but the Titans have been impressive on Day 2 of the draft since Robinson has gotten here.

From solid players like Austin Johnson and Jonnu Smith, to high upside guys like Derrick Henry and Taywan Taylor, all the way to an All-Pro in Kevin Byard, Robinson has done a great job avoiding the inconsistency on Day 2 that fans had grown accustomed to.

These are the guys that would make the biggest impact on the Titans over those next 70ish picks.

Round 2, pick 57: Hercules Mata’afa EDGE, Washington State

Oh hey, are you one of the people that doesn’t know who Mata’afa is? Go check out this thread where I break down what he does that is so special.

Honestly, when you see him he jumps off the screen and is one of the few defenders in this class that can make you take your eyes off the ball when watching him.

The Titans could walk into next season with Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Demarcus Lawrence, Erik Walden, and Hercules Mata’afa. They would be stacked at the second most important position in football.

Round 3, pick 89: Duke Dawson CB, Florida

Dawson has been consistently productive with Florida. While his height will be the primary factor for pushing him to Day 2, he would give the Titans some more flexibility in terms of using different players in the slot.

Last year they were in trouble when they had to put Adoree Jackson in the slot vs Tyreek Hill because of his speed, that wouldn’t be as big of an issue with another quick, aggressive CB on the field.
