Titans choose six offensive, three defensive players in 2017 Draft

Titans choose six offensive, three defensive players in 2017 Draft

Thank general manager Jon Robinson for helping to re-establish the Titans as a team on the rise.

So the first round showed Robinson didn't have to go insane in the first round. It wasn't even fair the way he did those corners in that conference.

Other players who could be late draft picks for undrafted free agents include Wayne State guard Nate Theaker who was an American Football Coaches Association Division II first-team All-American and Saginaw Valley State safety Matt McKoy who was the GLIAC Defensive Back of the Year.

How much do the Tennessee Titans really like Weems?

Davis, who led the FBS with 19 touchdown catches previous year, was the first receiver selected Thursday night and gives Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota another playmaker.

"Both Adoree' and Corey, they're very competitive players", coach Mike Mularkey said. Which brings us to the Titans, who are set at quarterback with Marcus Mariota but have the No. 5 pick.

Obviously the Titans medical staff has signed off on Davis being healthy or he wouldn't rate a No. 5 pick.

Jackson will probably be a popular player in the video game.

The typical concern for smaller cornerbacks like Jackson is that they will be overwhelmed against bigger wide receivers and unable to provide run support.

"I could be on the field tonight if need be", Davis said.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Corey Davis. Again, like Davis, it will have to translate at the National Football League level But Taylor will get a chance as the Titans' slot receiver out of the gate and give Marcus Mariota another weapon to work with. The Titans are a run first team. In addition, he's second all-time in NCAA receiving touchdowns with 52, and fourth in receptions (331).

With a high first round pick, Davis is projected to play early and often.

The 2017 NFL Draft continues with the second and third rounds on Friday (April 28) and the fourth through seventh rounds on Saturday (April 29). Taylor said he was almost speechless at being drafted by the team an hour away from where he played at Western Kentucky.

Davis said his ankle is fine - "I'm ready to play right now", he said - and he's anxious to find, finally, his new home. Despite a size disadvantage against most receivers he faced, Jackson tallied 19 pass breakups and six interceptions in three years.

Davis said he'd "rather have a guy wide open" which would be someone like Davis and his quickness out of breaks, but doesn't think it's a one-way street.
