Our blog network Bloguin is currently doing a first-round mock draft, and I’ll be making the pick for the Titans. You can follow along with the mock draft by going to this page. Here are the picks thus far:
1. CAR-Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
2. DEN-Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
3. BUF-Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
4. CIN-Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
5. ARI-Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
6. CLE-A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
7. SF-on the clock
I fully expect the 49ers to take OLB Von Miller, who fits a need for them, and then it’s up to me. The three players I was mentally targeting were Fairley, Gabbert, and Peterson, and I think there’s a real chance one of them is there in the actual draft. In this mock, though, they’re all off the board, and I don’t see a blindingly obvious replacement candidate. I’d trade down, but no trades in this mock.
In that case, then, I’m turning to you. Who do you want the Titans to take at #8 if this is how the draft plays out? Make your case in the comments, and I’ll report back on who I do end up taking and why.
