In the Tuesday edition of the Jim Wyatt Mailbag Experience, there were some real whoppers. One person wrote a dissertation on how cutting Julio Jones was a terrible move. Another decided to lament about the playoff loss yet again. Jim thankfully set them both straight.
The Titans take a tackle in the first round of Daniel Jeremiah’s latest mock draft. I am ok with a tackle, although I would prefer a WR.
Over on ESPN+, Mel Kiper has the Titans selecting Zion Johnson, a guard from Boston College. This would be a selection that would be a giant waste in my opinion. Not because Zion isn’t a good player, but because the value of a guard in the first round is lacking. It’s the offensive equivalent of drafting an ILB in the first round. Don’t do it. The return on investment is almost never worth it and quality guards can be found all throughout the draft or in FA. If you’re taking an OL in the first, make it a tackle (even though the Titans have shown to be incapable of drafting a good one since Conklin).
The narrative from Titans fans has been that the AFC has passed them up this offseason. Well, according to NFL.com, they are still one of the ten best teams in the league. Some of those teams with new shiny toys are still playing catch up. Not to mention, the Titans added a new shiny toys of their own in Robert Woods and Austin Hooper.
