16. A.J. Terrell CB, Clemson
This is almost a great fit for the Titans, but just not quite there.
Starting with the pros, Terrell does have the athleticism and flexibility to play inside and outside at the next level. That is so important to the Titans because unless you have elite speed (no one in this class does except maybe one player) you have to be able to move inside to start your career.
Another Jon Robinson draft staple is that you have to be able to prove your work on the page and his film does match up with his ball production. His 26 pass breakups aren’t incredibly impressive, but he does have 6 interceptions to go along with that which is a nice number.
I mentioned it early but Terrell doesn’t have is elite speed which hurts his projection to a team like the Tennessee Titans. He also has some pretty embarrassing moments from the LSU game that likely cost him millions of dollars in the long run.
With some doubt about whether he is built to handle faster receivers in the NFL, is he worth a first when you look at the players above him on this list? I don’t think so.
However, if the previous players are gone I like his fit enough to ignore the negatives and focus on having three cornerbacks who are a good matchup for 90% of the league and then scheme ways to slow down speed receivers on the rare occasions you have to see them.
