The Tennessee Titans select TE Jared Cook in 3rd round

by

Andrew, you got your wish.

Armed with a plethora of second-day draft selections, the Tennessee Titans traded for New England’s #89 pick. In exchange for the additional 3rd rounder, the Titans relinquished a 2010 2nd round pick to former Titan GM Floyd Reese and the Patriots.

With their newly-acquired 3rd rounder, the Titans picked up South Carolina TE Jared Cook.

Cook’s draft stock increased mightily as a result of his outstanding performance at the NFL Combine. His 4.50 forty-yard dash must of impressed the Titans, especially considering the team’s recent infatuation with guys who perform well at the league’s annual meat market.

Selecting Cook may be a sign that the Titans are contemplating life without Bo Scaife in the near future. Scaife, disgruntled with receiving the franchise tag and the team’s inability to provide him with a long-term deal, may not have a future in Nashville beyond this year.

Judging by his scouting report, Cook is an all-around tight end with the potential to contribute in the passing game as well as run-blocking.

What are your thoughts on Jared Cook?

    Well, maybe giving up a #2 wasn’t an incredibly awful idea for Ben Troupe v.2.0. Stevens is the in-line guy, Cook will move around more like they have with Scaife.

  2. Kevin G Says:

    anyone know anything about the CB we drafted?
    Ryan Mouton, not liking what I am hearing.

  3. Morgan Says:

    It took to the third round for the Titans to draft a starting player. Very disapointing draft. I watch college far more than the NFL and i havent missed a titans game in probably 7 years. Flop draft. Cook is our first good signing and that is in the 3rd round. As for Ryan Mouton, you shouldn’t like what you hear because he stinks. Jared Cook is and will be good, the rest of the players the Titans have drafted will be a stretch for NFL tallent.

  4. Matt Greene Says:

    I love seeing the same “sky is falling” comments as last year. Jason Jones wasn’t a starter when he was drafted, but now that we need him, he’s ready. The Titans are preparing for the future, just like they always do. Everyone CALM DOWN!

  5. Morgan Says:

    Matt, the Titans are ready for superboul right now. Worry about the future after they get one. Drafting 4th stringers aint helping us get to the superboul at all

  6. Johnathan Says:

    Worrying only about the present causes what happened in 04 with the salary cap purge. You can win today and still build for the future. And Morgan, you are one of the only people I have seen that would say that the Titans have had a terrible draft.
    Britt was a late first early second round prospect, as was Sen’Derrick Marks.

    Cook left a bad taste in my mouth here. I’d be wary of him – he totally quit on college as soon as he thought he had a chance at the NFL. And I don’t care how fast he can run, I wouldn’t want a guy like that on my team. I don’t wish ill upon him, but I won’t root for him like I would most guys from USC.

    Thanks for stopping by, Gamecockfan.
    The article you linked to aside, I’m optimistic about Cook becoming a decent player down the road.
    Gonna be interesting to see how things work out for him in Nashville.

  10. Dave Says:

    I think Spurrier quit on the NFL so his opinion leaves a lot to be desired.

    Morga n and gamecocksfan thanks for your input. I would ask ow many rutgers games have u watched bc the stats say he was pretty good. As for cook I heard the play/benching had to do with poor #!! Play as contributing factor. Just my two cents.

  12. Memo to the Tennessee Titans: Josh Cribbs may be available « Total Titans Says:

    [...] Cribbs’ turned down a new $1.4 million offer and according to reports, is looking for anything between $3-6 million per season. Even if the Titans were willing to meet that price, I’m not sure if they’d be interested in giving away a draft pick, especially considering they’re already down one in 2010 as a result of the Jared Cook trade.
