How the Tennessee Titans could close out the 2020 NFL Draft
Day 3 of the draft is simultaneously the most confusing and most interesting day of the NFL Draft if you know what to look for.
Yearly there are players that “slip” to the third day who have health concerns, character red flags, poor interviews, bad luck, or just guys who were simply misevaluated.
Over Jon Robinson’s tenure alone the Tennessee Titans have been able to get really solid role player and good starters on Day 3 including Jayon Brown, David Long Jr., Amani Hooker, Corey Levin RIP (nothing is wrong with his health I just think he is much better than he got to prove here), Tajae Sharpe, and LeShaun Sims.
All Day 3 picks are not created equal though, for each guy that makes an impact you are likely to have big swings and misses.
These are the rounds where scouts get to stand on the table and pull for “their guy” while the GM sits back and genuinely listens. I’m sure you know, but Jon Robinson doesn’t individually scout every single player the Titans draft.
I’m sure today that Robinson is going over a list of 20-30 players who they expect to have a real shot at with the 174th pick, but he is probably spending just as much time combing over the notes he had on players that they spent time interviewing throughout the process.
Which guys are good fits for the Titans, not necessarily from just a needs standpoint but also from a fit standpoint?
These are the 15 players Titans fans should keep an eye on from pick 174 to pick 243, in no particular order.
