71. RB D’Andre Swift, Georgia
The best third-round in NFL Draft history begins with Georgia RB D’Andre Swift. Swift is arguably the premier tailback in the class (he’s my RB1) and offers the highest upside as a three-down back at the NFL level.
The Titans get their RB2 and now deploy the most potent one-two punch in the NFL.
89. OT Isaiah Wilson, Georgia
Back-to-back Georgia Bulldogs, OT Isaiah Wilson is a favorite of mine to mock to the Titans. One of the largest humans on earth, Wilson, can push the line of scrimmage with ease. Still raw as a prospect, with tons of upside, Wilson can sit a year behind RT Dennis Kelly and take over as the long-term starter in 2021.
93. QB Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma
I mean, come on. Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts could fall farther, but spending one of five third-round picks on a guy with as much upside as Hurts has is a no-brainer.
Hurts might never become “the guy” under-center for the Titans, but he could, and it’s worth the risk here. Develop the kid under QB Ryan Tannehill, and throw in some sub-packages utilizing Hurts as an offensive weapon in the meantime.
98. CB Amik Robertson, Louisiana Tech
Some may say this is too late to address the Titans’ cornerback issues, but I would take Louisiana Tech CB Amik Robertson in the second round, and he’s still rising. The more I watch his tape, the more I love. Mark my words, Robertson will be a steal in the 2020 NFL Draft.
105. DL Davon Hamilton, Ohio State
A player like Ohio State’s DL Davon Hamilton only falls this far due to lack of a pass-rush. Players selected higher are more likely to be three-down players. It’s just the way it works. Hamilton spent most of his time as a 3T in 2019, but he also spent time in the A-gap. The former Buckeye offers plenty of bulk to defend the run on early downs and would pair nicely with DL Jeffery Simmons if he plays more 3T in 2020.
