Tennessee Titans fans should rejoice over recent Lance Zierlein mock
The NFL Draft isn’t what you would call an exact science. How many times have you heard that? If you’re a Tennessee Titans fan, that’s a fact that you should know all too well. It doesn’t matter how much you analyze these prospects. It won’t matter if you spend hours watching game film and listening to the experts. Your team can still wind up with someone like Isaiah Wilson in Round 1.
Here we are, one year later, and if, for no other reason, the next selection meeting at least allows everyone that self-identifies as a Titans fan to erase that blemish off of your soul. Landing a superstar at the 22nd-overall selection would help, and if the real draft plays out like a recent television mock that we saw discussed on NFL Network, Tennessee will have one by the end of the draft’s first night.
Lance Zierlein does the Tennessee Titans a solid.
If you’re an NFL fan and you get all hyped about this draft stuff but you don’t know who Lance Zierlein is, you might want to do some homework immediately. If you find yourself on these search engines looking for draft prospect profiles, and you land on one from NFL.com, you’re probably reading Zierlein’s work. He’s excellent.
Recently, he tried his hand at another mock of his own, and in it, he sends former Northwestern Wildcats standout Greg Newsome II to Nashville at the 22nd-overall selection. This would be a huge win for the franchise and would, most definitely, satisfy that craving that some of you have had for a cornerback in Round 1. Check out Bucky Brooks’ analysis of the pick in a recent drop for NFL Network.
Here’s some background on Newsome if you’re a Tennessee Titans fan.
If you’ll remember, Titan Sized mocked him to Tennessee in Round 2 almost two weeks ago, but he appears to be trending upward. Don’t be surprised, after hearing about Caleb Farley, Jaycee Horn, and Patrick Surtain for a month, if Newsome joins them as one of those guys that don’t make it out of Round 1.
He’s six-foot-one. He tips the scales at 190 pounds, and 17 games at the collegiate level, he racked up 71 tackles and a pick. No, the stats aren’t eye-popping but trust everyone you’re listening to on this one. This young man has ‘superstar’ and ‘starter’ written all over him.
