Don’t bet on the Tennessee Titans taking any of these five prospects.
Any good NFL general manager can find talent in the first three rounds of a draft, but it’s the great GMs who understand what they need to look for in prospects and they find ways to add talent in each of the later rounds. The Tennessee Titans are lucky to have a great GM in Jon Robinson.
During his time in the position, Jon Robinson has selected 35 players over the course of five selection meetings, and he’s drafted multiple players at every position except for the tight end area.
That sample size should give observers a pretty good idea of what Robinson is looking for. What we’re going to look at today is a list of players commonly mocked to the Tennessee Titans that don’t match up with these tendencies.
Is it impossible that the Titans are going to draft one of these players? Well, no. We have seen GMs completely abandon all reason and tendency and spend high draft picks on kickers or get a wild hair and go against their research for players that they believe are outliers. Still, at the end of the day, it’s always wise to go with what history says.
Here’s something to help you avoid disappointment, Here are five prospects the Titans figure to ignore in Round 1.
