Tennessee Titans 2020 NFL Draft: 7-round, post Super Bowl
By Will Lomas
Round 3, pick 93: Troy Pride Jr. CB, Notre Dame
I feel about as confident about this as you could fee about a 3rd round pick in February.
The Titans have filled two of their biggest needs and aren’t scheduled to pick for what will be around 75 picks after the compensatory picks are announced. Before he had a standout week at the Senior Bowl, I wrote this about why Troy Pride should be on the Tennessee Titans watchlist:
"Pride is a quicker DB who still has enough size to line up inside or outside at the next level. While his 2019 season maybe wasn’t as good as his 2018 season, he still looks like a talented cornerback that can affect passes in the air. In the admittedly little amount that I have watched him in draft prep, he looks like a guy who quickly comes up to make tackles and is well regarded for his speed. With Adoree Jackson scheduled to be a free agent after 2020, it makes sense for Jon Robinson to protect himself by adding a similar backup behind him."
Pride is projected to run in the mid-4.3s and at nearly 6’0 he is one of the players left on the board that I think has a chance to be a plug-and-play guy, luckily for the Titans he is exactly what they are looking for.
