The Round Sevens: Quez Watkins, WR, Southern Miss, Lamical Perine, RB, Florida, Steven Montez, QB, Colorado
By this point, the Titans would have addressed all of their pressing offensive needs through their first four picks. They’ll have two strong pass-catchers in Reagor and Moss, two solid offensive linemen in Cleveland and Lemieux, all that’s left is high-potential depth.
Starting with Quez Watkins, the speedy receiver out of Southern Miss. The theme of this mock class of wide receivers is players who can blow past coverage and serve a deep threat role, and Watkins would have no trouble in that role.
The Southern Miss receiver produced in spades his junior year, and showed out at the combine with a 4.35 40-yard dash time. He would be another Kalif Raymond type with the potential to score on any play.
Florida’s running back Lamical Perine comes next in the middle of the seventh round. Like Zach Moss, Perine possesses strong pass-catching ability out of the backfield and proved to be a capable runner while averaging over 5 yards a carry in both his junior and senior seasons. Perine would probably not see much action in Tennessee, but would provide a nice third option in the backfield.
Tennessee closes out this mock draft by finding competition for the QB2 spot in Steven Montez out of Colorado. The Buffaloes quarterback never lit up the stat sheet as a passer, but showcased strong ability as an athlete and threw the ball with enough accuracy to earn a late draft selection.
And just like that, all of the Titans’ problems on offense are solved. You’re welcome, Tennessee.
