Titans conclude draft with OLB Deiontrez Mount, C Andy Gallik, WR Tre McBride

Oops, I thought I got up a post on these guys from my phone while hanging out in the media workroom. Apparently not. Well, this post is better than that would have been. The Tennessee Titans rounded out the 2015 NFL draft by selecting Louisville outside linebacker/defensive end Deiontrez Mount with their sixth-round pick, 177th […]

Titans select RB David Cobb in fifth round

With their fifth round pick, 138th overall, the Titans selected running back David Cobb out of Minnesota. Cobb was a very productive back for the Golden Gophers. He’s a big back, almost 230 pounds, so competition for Shonn Greene and Antonio Andrews in that role in the committee with Bishop Sankey. He only ran a […]

Titans add DL Angelo Blackson, FB Jalston Folwer in fourth round

The Tennessee Titans had two of the first nine picks in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL draft and held on to both of them. They used the first pick of the day, 100th overall, on Auburn defensive lineman Angelo Blackson. They used the ninth pick of the round, 108th overall, acquired from the […]

Titans select OT Jeremiah Poutasi in third round

With their third-round pick, #66 overall, the Tennessee Titans selected Utah offensive tackle Jeremiah Poutasi. It was recently reported Poutasi had a private workout for the Titans. I haven’t had a chance to watch him yet. He was 6’5″ and 335 pounds at the combine and fits the same basic mold of the offensive tackles […]

Titans trade back, select Dorial Green-Beckham

The Tennessee Titans began Day 2 of the 2015 NFL draft by trading out of the 33rd overall pick, dealing it to the New York Giants for their second-round pick, 40th overall, their fourth-round pick, 108th overall, and their seventh-round pick, 245th overall. With that 40th overall pick, the Titans selected wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. […]

Titans day 2 draft outlook

The Titans are currently on the clock, with the first pick of the second day of the 2015 NFL draft, #33 overall. What might they do with that pick? Let’s go to the oracle of what the Titans will do in the draft, general manager Ruston Webster. From his pre-draft press conference: “I would say […]

Titans stand pat at #2, take Marcus Mariota

There seemed to be plenty of interest, but months of trade talk ended up with the Titans sticking with the second overall pick and taking Marcus Mariota. The Hawaii product was a phenomenally productive college passer who faces a bit of a learning curve in adjusting to Ken Whisenhunt’s preferred style of quarterbacking. It’s not […]


My 2015 seven-round Titans mock

I’ve broken down the Titans visits. I’ve gone through the likelihood they choose a player at each position. It’s draft day, which means it’s time for me to do my draft day annual tradition: taking somebody else’s seven-round mock and picking who I would pick for the Titans at that slot given how that draft […]


Titans draft preview by position

Beyond breaking down the visits like I did in my previous post, another of the staples of my pre-draft coverage has been a breakdown of the Titans’ chances of drafting a player at each position. In the past, I’ve done separate posts for offense and for defense (links to 2014 versions), giving an estimate of […]


Breaking down the Titans’ (reported) pre-draft visits

Before the Tennessee Titans spend a high pick on a player, chances are very good they brought him to St. Thomas Sports Park on a private visit. As I noted last year, general manager Ruston Webster has previously declared the importance of visits (and workouts) in learning about a prospective high pick before using a […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ST

Finally done. After concluding the defense with a look at the safeties, the final stop on our trip position by position around the Tennessee Titans is a look at special teams. As I now mention every time I do this positional analysis, special teams consists of five separate and distinct elements, albeit with overlapping skills. These […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: CB

After defensive line, outside linebacker, and inside linebacker, our next stop on our position by position trip around the Tennessee Titans as we head deep into the offseason is a look at the cornerbacks. My preseason positional analysis for the Titans’ prospects at cornerbacks in 2014 included references to panic level one, panic level two, […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ILB

Let’s see, if I get ILB up now, CB up Monday night, S up Tuesday during the day, and ST up Tuesday night, I could write my two pre-draft posts. That works. After defensive line and outside linebacker, our next stop around the defensive half of the Tennessee Titans as we head deeper into the […]

Titans add WR Hakeem Nicks

The Titans stepped into the bargain basement part of free agency again today, signing veteran receiver Hakeem Nicks. Nicks went one pick before Kenny Britt in the 2009 NFL draft, and the Titans were reportedly fairly interested in him. He started his career with the Giants and when healthy was a highly productive downfield receiver. […]
