1st round, 29th pick: Denzel Mims WR, Baylor
According to Matt Miller‘s most recent scouting notebook, fans should start thinking about the Titans needs as CB, OT and playmaking WR. This draft is pretty deep at cornerback and I just didn’t have an OT worth pulling the trigger on here, so I went for the athletic phenom who passes the Titans seemingly mandatory “two seasons of 1,000+ yard” requirement.
2nd round, 61st pick: Justin Madubuike DL, Texas A&M
-Madubuike is another athletic, productive player that the Titans could target and I am struggling to find a time where Robinson invested a high pick in an SEC player that didn’t warrant it. Derrick Henry, A.J. Brown, Jeffery Simmons, and Rashaan Evans are good enough for me to bet that Robinson hits the SEC once in his top two picks.
3rd round, 93rd pick: Troy Pride CB, Notre Dame
-To try to get as close to reality as possible, I tried to use the method that Jon Robinson has to pick every 3rd round pick he has had since coming to Tennessee. So, I ended up with Pride who is a good size corner with really good speed and who was very competitive vs the run.

5th round, 174th pick: Hakeem Adeniji OL, Kansas
-The Tennessee Titans need depth along the offensive line, so getting a tweener backup with great athleticism was easy here. The Titans have shown that they aren’t afraid of small school offensive linemen later in the draft and maybe this will be their new Corey Levin.
7th round, 224th pick: Malcolm Perry WR/RB, Navy
-Perry was a college QB who would give the Titans a nice gadget option if they wanted someone on the field who can give them something as a chess piece. Maybe a poor man’s Taysom Hill?
7th round,237th pick: Cole McDonald QB, Hawaii
-You wouldn’t know it by his career rushing numbers, but McDonald is a pretty athletic option behind Ryan Tannehill. I still like McDonald despite most people cooling on him this season, so why not take a flier on someone who could be a great backup in the NFL?
7th round, Rodrigo Blankenship K, Georgia
-I don’t have any numbers to support this, but for whatever reason it feels like every time I watched Blankenship kick in clutch situations, he made the kick. Go ahead and spend a pick on him and have him compete.
