Round 1 Pick 29: OL Isaiah Wilson
Some people felt that this pick was maybe a reach, as Wilson was projected to go anywhere from the bottom of the 1st round to the 3rd.
However, now that I’ve had a couple days to digest, I think this was the right move. Yes, a trade back might’ve netted more picks, but this is a safe selection that makes the Titans better for the future.
I love Dennis Kelly, but I believe he’s better suited for the role he played last year, which is a guy who can come in when needed and play at multiple o-line positions and perform well. The selection of Wilson greatly increases the depth of this line, and if Wilson struggles at RT initially, the Titans have a competent backup who can step in.
So, while maybe a reach, this was a pick at an area of need, and Wilson’s style of play fits perfectly in the Titans power-run approach.
