Fans who have been clamoring for the Titans to use a first-round draft pick on a wide receiver have had their wishes fulfilled. It’s the first time since 1998 that Tennessee has selected a wideout with their first pick. Kenny Britt is the man who has broken the eleven-year drought, a big receiver who has a lot of things to like about him.
Not all Titans fans will be rejoicing though. All of the flashy names, guys who had speed or were dangerous playmakers were selected earlier. My initial impressions of Britt are good. I especially like his ability as a route runner, which should enable him to get some decent reps. I also like his production and his run-after-catch ability.
Here’s an excerpt from a scouting report on him by Scott Wright:
Terrific ball skills and body control…An explosive leaper…Excellent strength…Pretty good route runner…Physical and aggressive…Runs hard and can do some damage after the catch
Titans fans, what’s your opinion? Was Britt a good pick?
