Tennessee Titans official visits 2018 NFL Mock Draft

NASHVILLE, TN - SEPTEMBER 10: Richie James /

Using the Tennessee Titans official visits to make a 2018 NFL Mock Draft.

Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson is very consistent and has a clear methodology with his draft picks. This year is no different.

Three things really stand out as things Jon Robinson loves in a draft prospect:

-Production over projects

-Long term starters


More from Titans Draft

The first two you can quantify. For example, Corey Davis was one of the most productive WRs in Div. I history and he started 50 games in his college career.

“Fit” is harder to figure out, but it seems like the Titans use their visits to focus in on players they really like already to make sure they are fits. So you can take a lot from who takes official visits with Jon Robinson.

So, based off that, here is a mock draft using just the official player list visits (and maybe some rumored visits).

Trade: Tennessee Titans trade pick 25 (720 points)


Tampa Bay’s 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th round pick (665 points)

-The Tennessee Titans just seem destined to trade down to get more picks in this draft based on the caliber of prospects they have been bringing in. Now, Robinson makes a deal with an old friend and lands three extra picks.

  • Round 2, pick 38: Josh Sweat EDGE, FSU

    -An athletic freak, Sweat is the one thing that I said earlier that Robinson doesn’t like: a project. However, there are flashes when he is used correctly that he could be a good developmental guy on the edge.

    With his potential and his probably low floor, I could understand why the Titans may take a risk on him but they have to get some picks out of it or else I just see no value there.

    Round 2, pick 57: Justin Reid S, Stanford

    -With the prime linebackers off the board at this spot, the Titans go with a safety that has been getting a lot of attention.

    Reid has a football family and has all the athleticism and football IQ that you would want. If he is a hit and the Titans can use both he and Byard as versatile safeties that can play FS/SS, then this defense would have one of the most dominant backfields in the NFL.

    Round 3, pick 89: Uchenna Nwosu EDGE/LB, USC

    -Nwosu is a weird one because I don’t know the correct way you use him. When I see him on film I definitely think that he is an EDGE that does his best work on the outside getting to the QB or getting his hands up and knocking down passes.

    However, could he be a better fit inside at LB? Is he a versatile player like Whitney Mercilus that you can move around and blitz from different places while also being able to cover some? I don’t know, but I guarantee that is how the Patriots would use him.

    Either way, versatility and athleticism are in high demand on this defense so Nwosu makes a ton of sense.

    Round 4, pick 102: Shaquem Griffin EDGE/LB, UCF

    -While he didn’t take an official visit, Robinson made a specific trip to go meet and visit with him during the owners meetings. So, I am going to go ahead and count it.

    Griffin is electric and he has made a ton of plays over the past two years. I think you can play him either off the ball or as and EDGE at the next level and he will give energy to your defense.

    Round 4, pick 125: D.J. Reed CB, Kansas State

    -Reed is the perfect guy for Robinson to fall in love with on Day 3. He has made a ton of plays as a starter and if you ignore his height then you have an ideal CB.

    Unfortunately, he is 5’9 and a lot of teams are going to just take him off the board for that. He is a scrappy CB that I could see earning one of those DB spots as a reserve and on special teams.

    Round 5, pick 144: Richie James WR, MTSU

    -Really nice local player who could shine in a wide open offense like Matt LaFleur’s. He could earn that 5th WR job pretty easily.

    Round 5, pick 162: Andrew Brown DL, Virginia

    -A high potential player if the Titans want to try to find a potential spark down the road on the DL.

    Round 6, pick 180: Dane Cruikshank DB, Arizona

    -More of a true “strong safety” who actually had more impact plays (PBUs/TFLs/Sacks/INTs) as a SS than a CB.

    Round 6, pick 199: Ito Smith RB, Southern Miss.

    -Another short RB to take with the last pick like Jon Robinson did last year.
