Gil Brandt and Mark Dominik said the Titans could/should select Zaven Collins or Christian Barmore with the 22nd pick. Please don’t, JRob. I’ve been on the record many times saying the Titans should stay away from any non-CB defensive player in the first round. If the Titans drafted Collins, they’d be banking on a player to make a giant leap at a position he didn’t play much in college, against lesser competition in year one. In Barmore, they’d be drafting a guy that is reportedly “resistant to coaching”. Sounds like a guy they got last year, and I don’t want a repeat.
There is a ton of Barmore love in the Jim Wyatt Mailbag Experience this week. Stay away.
In NFL Network’s LIVE mock, Lance Zierlein selected Greg Newsome, CB from Northwestern for the Titans. Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks both liked the pick, noting that he has a high ceiling and a high floor.
In another mock draft, Chad Reuter gives the Titans good players after the second round. The first and second rounds are very poor.
The Kansas City Chiefs made a big time deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, trading for Orlando Brown to be their LT of the future.
