The 2019 NFL draft is still a little more than two months away, but it’s never too early to take a look at who the Tennessee Titans might select.
Bleacher Report recently released their latest full seven round mock draft. The Titans have six selections in this year’s draft (they don’t have a sixth round pick).
Here’s who they have the Titans selecting (you can check out their full mock draft here).
Round 1 Pick 19
Marquise Brown — WR — Oklahoma: The cousin of star wide receiver Antonio Brown has a been a popular mock selection for the Titans in recent weeks. Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller describes Brown as having “great separation in his routes” and also mentions his great play making skills after the catch. There’s a good chance, however, that a strong combine performance could vault Brown into the top ten.
Round 2 Pick 51
Chase Winovich — EDGE — Michigan: The Titans definitely need to add a pass rusher or two in the off-season. Ideally, one would come in free agency and one through the draft. Winovich, 6-foot-3/255 lbs, compiled 18.5 sacks during his career at Michigan. He’s considered a “high motor” player who plays better than his stats indicate.
Round 3 Pick 82
Germaine Pratt — LB — NC State: Pratt is an outside linebacker who had a breakout season as a senior at NC State, totaling 104 tackles and six sacks. Pratt is considered a solid coverage linebacker.
Round 4 Pick 114
Mike Edwards — S — Kentucky: Edwards is solid in coverage and he’s a great tackler. But he’s a bit undersized at the safety position, which means he’ll likely be a slot corner in the NFL.
Round 5 Pick (TBD because of comp picks)
Michael Jackson — CB — Miami: Jackson has the coverage skills and size to be a starting cornerback in the NFL. He finished his career at Miami with four interceptions and 11 passes defensed.
Round 7 Pick (TBD)
Amani Bledsoe — DE — Oklahoma: Bledsoe once served a year long suspension for failing a drug test for PEDs. He sued the NCAA for another year of eligibility, but that clearly didn’t go his way. Bledsoe had four sacks in his career at Oklahoma.
I’m a fan of taking Brown in the first round if he’s available. I really like his potential as a wide receiver in the NFL. I also think he’d pair great with Corey Davis. Taking a pass rusher in the second round is also a move I could get behind, as that’s clearly a need for the Titans. Another huge need for the Titans is along the offensive line — specifically the interior offensive line. Not taking a single offensive lineman in this draft would be a questionable move. I can’t see Jon Robinson making the decision to eschew an offensive lineman for an abundance of defensive backs.
