The Round Sevens: Javelin Guidry, CB, Utah — Malcolm Roach, IDL, Texas — Josiah Coatney, IDL, Ole Miss
The Titans wrap up their all-defense mock draft with another series of depth picks, starting with a player that would provide some help outside of the defense as well.
Utah’s cornerback Javelin Guidry was a pretty solid cornerback in college. He started 12 games in his final college season and earned an All PAC-12 honorable mention for his junior year efforts, but Guidry really boosted his stock in the NFL Combine where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.29 seconds.
The Titans could fit Guidry in somewhere in the cornerback depth chart, but his value with the team would truly show itself in special teams as a kick returner. The kind of speed the Utah cornerback possesses would give Tennessee a spark in the return game that some people hoped Adoree Jackson would be.
Closing out the draft would be two picks on the interior defensive line, Texas’ Malcolm Roach and Mississippi’s Josiah Coatney. At this point, most of Tennessee’s defensive needs both in regards to depth and starter talent should be addressed, aside from the need for a few more players on the interior defensive line.
Neither Roach nor Coatney are highly regarded prospects, but Coatney has the size to be a surprise player at the next level, and Roach did well enough in the stat sheet with nine tackles for loss and three sacks. Both could be solid depth pieces on a defensive roster that should now be packed to the brim with talent at every level.
