2020 NFL Draft: 1 prospect from every FBS School the Titans may target
Cincinnati- Michael Warren II, RB
Cincinnati has been a Group of Five powerhouse the past few years, and Michael Warren II was no small part in that machine, with 1,000 or more yards in each of the last two seasons. Here‘s his tape.
East Carolina- Kendall Futrell, EDGE
Futrell is a consensus day three prospect or undrafted free agent, but he’s a swiss army knife on the second level. He played both on the edge and as an inside linebacker very rarely, but he will probably be asked to stay exclusively on the edge at the NFL level, and here is some tape.
Houston- Joshua Jones, T
The Dennis Kelly replacement! Or now that Conklin is gone, he’s the Dennis Kelly role replacement! He’s got some development to do, but you can tell from his tape that he’s not far away from being a very solid player.
Memphis- Patrick Taylor, RB
Memphis had a three-headed monster in 2019, and Taylor was the head in the backfield, with Antonio Gibson and Kenny Gainwell being the second and third heads respectively. He didn’t always produce, but when he did, which you can see in tape against Cincinnati, he made his presence very known.
Navy- Malcolm Perry, WR/RB
Malcolm Perry was the player for Navy that was put under center just because he was the best athlete on the field. He has indicated that he will not play quarterback at the next level, so when watching tape, just watch how he moves with the ball in his hand.
SMU- James Proche, WR
James Proche was always a solid receiver, but he really burst onto the scene in 2019 with former Texas Longhorn Shane Buechele under center. Just look at the difference in his tape from 2018 to 2019. It’s insane.
South Florida- Mitchell Wilcox, TE
Another tight end, but one who was used more equally between blocking and receiving, Wilcox has some great upside, but is still a consensus day three prospect. Here is some tape.
Tulane- BoPete Keyes, CB
His actual name is Thakarius, but he goes by BoPete, so I’ll respect the man and call him what he wants to be called. He has some pretty solid tape, but is a day three prospect who will need some development before he can really come into his own in the NFL.
Temple- Matt Hennessy, IOL
Hennessy is considered the best center in the draft, but as stated earlier, NFL coaches are not afraid to move interior linemen around as they see fit. It’s definitely not a bad suggestion to say that he’s the best center in the draft, as his tape shows.
Tulsa- Trevis Gipson, EDGE
I can’t tell if Gipson would be better on as a DE in the Titans’ 3-4 or OLB, but I’ll give it to DE, just given his tape showing the coaches sticking him closer to the guards than the tackles.
UCF- Nevelle Clarke, CB
Nevelle Clarke was the CB1 in Orlando following the departure of Mike Hughes in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he performed very well. His tape shows his best performances of 2019, but he also played well in 2018.
