Two of the Tennessee Titans’ Day 3 guys are quite the conversation piece.
Dez Fitzpatrick, wide receiver, Lousiville (Round 4)
Biggest Problem: Depth and better talent at his position
Let’s get a couple of things straight here. One, Dez Fitzpatrick has the size coaches covet (he’s six-foot-two and 210 pounds). Second, he’s also super talented and should pay dividends.
Had the Tenessee Titans not traded for a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee at the wide receiver position, we’d probably be expecting a lot more out of Fitzpatrick in year one. Now, you have to figure that most of the targets he would have gotten will now go to the top three wideouts on the Titans depth chart (A.J. Brown, Julio Jones, and Josh Reynolds).
Rashad Weaver, Pittsburgh (Round 4)
Biggest Problem: Legal issues
At the risk of sounding disrespectful, this one’s pretty obvious. This isn’t the forum for discussing whether or not Rashad Weaver is guilty or innocent of what he’s been accused of, but from a football standpoint, you have to assume that everything going on off of the field could affect him while he’s on one.
