Isaiah Hodgins, WR
I’m not sure how rare it is for a rookie to be traded before getting a chance to play an NFL game, but Hodgins may be a perfect example of a player that could be the exception to the norm.
Hodgins is likely fighting to be the WR5 on this roster behind John Brown, Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis, and Isaiah McKenzie (who has special teams value). In 2020, it is hard for rookies to get a snap, much less to get snaps over higher drafted rookies at the same position.
Coming out of the draft, Hodgins was one of the receivers I thought the Titans might be interested in because he was incredibly productive with over 2,000 yards in his last two seasons.
His big knock coming out of college was that he lacked top-end speed which forced him to rely on technique and great hands to win. Hodgins would have time to work his DB over with the Titans because of just how much attention is paid to the running game and who he has around him.
Hodgins wouldn’t need to be a starter for the Titans, just someone to take the place of Tajae Sharpe at WR4 and his refinement and height gives Tennessee a lot to work with.
