Tennessee Titans select CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson in third round

The third round of the 2013 round began with a run on cornerbacks.  Three of the first seven picks were corners and the Titans made it four out of eight with the selection of UConn's Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

As Tom has noted on several recent occasions, the Titans had an urgent need at corner.  There were questions about who will be the slot man in coverage and there were only three natural corners on the roster – Jason McCourty, Alterraun Verner and Coty Sensabaugh.  Tommie Campbell, who's listed as a fourth corner, remains a project.

Wreh-Wilson is tall (6'1") with long arms (32") and should be best in press coverage.  This scouting report twice uses the phrase "short area quickness."

According to Titans Radio's Jonathan Hutton, Mel Kiper ranks him as the sixth best corner in the draft and Mike Detillier has him ranked seventh.
