NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has the Tennessee Titans addressing one of their biggest offseason needs in his latest 2020 mock draft.
Jeremiah has the Titans selecting Marlon Davidson, an edge rusher from Auburn, with the No. 29 overall pick.
Here’s what he says about the selection.
Davidson played in 50 games during his four years at Auburn. He totaled 14.5 sacks during his career, including 6.5 sacks as a senior in 2019.
The Draft Network has a pretty good breakdown of Davidson from this past December.
And judging by that breakdown, he might be a bit of a reach in the first round. They described Davidson as a “scheme specific” player that is a day two draft prospect. He probably isn’t the edge rusher that Tennessee is looking for in the first round that they hope can take their defense to the next level. He doesn’t have the “short burst” that elite edge rushers posses.
Unfortunately for the Titans, it could be difficult to find the answer to their edge rusher problem late in the first round.
Of course, general manager Jon Robinson likes to make moves on draft day, so there’s no guarantee the Titans will be picking at No. 29 come April 23.
