Tennessee Titans draft: Day Two preview

by

After selecting WR Kenny Britt and DT Sen’Derrick Marks yesterday, the Tennessee Titans enter the second day of the draft armed with eight more picks, half of them non-tradable compensatory selections,
 
I’m generally pleased with those picks but if I had to select one thing I’m disappointed in so far it’s Tennessee’s failure to package some picks and trade up to draft some targeted players.
 
There are still some good players out there, not to mention some possible diamonds in the rough, such as former seventh-round pick Cortland Finnegan turned out to be. 

Four of the players Tennessee invited for a visit are on:personnel guru Gil Brandt’s list of top players still available:
 
CB D.J. Moore, Vanderbilt
TE Shawn Nelson, Southern Miss
RB Andre Brown, North Carolina
DE Lawrence Sidbury, Richmond
 
I’m looking forward to seeing if the Titans make a move to trade up to draft any of those guys.
 
Needs that have not yet been addressed include cornerback, linebacker and offensive line. Two corners are a strong possibility. Tennessee still has the following draft picks to address those needs and/or trade up:
 
Round 3 – #94 overall
Round 4 – #130
Round 4 – #135 (compensatory)
Round 5 – #173 (compensatory)
Round 6 – #203
Round 6 – #206 (compensatory)
Round 7 – #239
Round 7 – #242 (compensatory)
 
What did you think about Day One? What would you like to see the Titans do on Day Two?

    Hopefully, DJ Moore is still there at the end of the 3rd so the Titans can take him. I expect a run on TEs at some point, so I don’t think Nelson will be there. I also think Sidbury would be a great pick at the end of the 3rd, but I have a feeling he won’t be there becasue he has been creeping up draft boards. He had good combine and workout numbers. He is probably the top DE/OLB left on most boards. Andre Brown does not thrill me in the 3rd round. If he is still on the board at the end of the 4th, then the Titans could consider taking him. I am, however, holding out hope that the RB the Titans take is either J. Johnson or G. Coffee in the 4th or 5th round.

    I love the Jared Cook pick! I think we got a great value in the third and we finally traded up Andrew! I would like to see us get a corner and OLB and I would be very satisfied with this draft.

  3. Kevin G Says:

    @ andrew, hate what we had to give up for him though.

  4. Tom Gower Says:

    Trading up was something we were supposed to do using THIS YEAR’s picks, not NEXT YEAR’s higher pick.

  5. Scott Says:

    The Cook pick is a little surprising. I guess they like him a lot more than Nelson. I am not sure I like giving up a 2nd in next year’s draft.
