Titans GM Ran Carthon, HC Mike Vrabel Continue to Gather Intel on Prospects at Pro Days


NASHVILLE – Titans general manager Ran Carthon will return to his alma mater on Thursday to attend Pro Day at the University of Florida.

It's where quarterback Anthony Richardson will take center stage, but roughly a dozen other Gators are also scheduled to work out before NFL officials. Florida expects representatives from all 32 NFL teams to attend the program's Pro Day.

Carthon, hired as GM of the Titans earlier this offseason, has already made three other stops on the Pro Day circuit. Titans coach Mike Vrabel has also been making the rounds.

"It will be four total," Carthon said. "It's always helpful, because you get to see the kids in their comfortable environment. If you think about it – for the seniors, you see them at an all-star game, where they barely know which way to go for their drills, right? So that's uncomfortable. And then for the underclassmen, the first time you see them is at the combine, so that's an uncomfortable place.

"So, I think you really get to see their true personality when they are back on campus, when they are back in their building, around their coaches, and around their teammates. Then you get to see the true personality, but you also get to see how they interact with their teammates and how those guys respond to them."

Carthon previously attended Pro Days at Ohio State, Alabama and Kentucky. All three schools have quarterbacks projected to go early in the NFL Draft (C.J. Stroud at Ohio State, Bryce Young at Alabama and Will Levis at Kentucky).

Vrabel is scheduled to be at Pro Day for the University of Tennessee on Thursday after previously attending Pro Days at Ohio State, Kentucky and Cincinnati.

Following the Ohio State workout, Vrabel stopped for an interview with WSYX in Columbus, when he was asked if there was anyone, in particular, he was there to see.

"All of them," Vrabel said. "Anybody that can help us."

Carthon said the team is just doing its due diligence at every position.

The Titans are currently scheduled to pick 11th in the first round.

"You have to do your due diligence on everybody," Carthon said. "You look at each of those schools and they have other draftable players that are of some interest to us. But again, you have to know what is going before you, and what's being picked after you. … I have been to those three schools and will be going to my alma mater, Florida, (on Thursday)."
