Who did the Titans get?
The point of this exercise is to look at a team’s top two picks and examine the impact of the tandem of picks as a collective instead of individually.
This is what the Titans walked away with:
1st round, pick 29: Ross Blacklock DT, TCU
2nd round, pick 61: Kristian Fulton CB, LSU
"“The Titans need a right tackle, but the board might dictate they add an upfield, interior defensive lineman to replace the departed Jurrell Casey. Fulton could come in and add immediate competition at cornerback, which is something the Titans could use in this draft.”"
Blacklock only has 5.5 career sacks and is more of a “what if” guy than an instant 3-down starter. On top of that, he presumably wouldn’t even start for the Titans who have Jeffery Simmons and Daquan Jones slatted to lead that group.
I actually don’t mind Fulton that much, but I am not blown away by the pick either. In terms of fit, I am not sure that there is a better fit for the Titans at cornerback than Amik Robertson.
Robertson has real Cortland Finnegan vibes as a prospect and could add another level of attitude into a defense that needs to keep that energy up because when they get cold, they get very cold.
