The Tennessee Titans select UCF’s star tight end at 215.
The Trend: There isn’t a strong trend here because the Titans have had four sixth-round selections in the Jon Robinson era and they were Sebastian Tretola, Corey Levin, Luke Falk, and David Long.
That is sort of a scattershot pattern, and the common denominator is that this is the range where the Titans start letting their scouts make strong pushes for guys that they like. Since Jacob Harris has had a visit with the Titans, it’s safe to assume that the scout involved in that area must be interested enough in Harris that he is willing to push for him.
Analysis: There is a discussion on whether Harris is a tight end or a receiver, but the beauty of that is that the Titans know exactly how to use a player with that positionless mindset.
If he can be developed as a blocker, the Titans could try to get him on the Jonnu Smith, Darren Waller plan and aim for him to become a starter in the next few years. If not, then he can still be an Anthony Firkser type player with more athleticism.
Either way, this is another player who is a standout special teams player, so he can buy himself a spot on the roster and more time to grow into the player he should be on offense.
