Todd Wilder from New Braunfels, Texas
Don't really see JR moving up in the early rounds unless there is a player or great value they can't pass up. If we move around i would put my money on it being on Day 2 or 3. Here's My Final Mock Draft with us staying put at all our current picks. Not sure if we gave up a 4th Rounder this year or next year for Correa/Tannehill. But if not here's my best case scenario.
19- DT Christian Wilkins
51- WR Deebo Samuel
82-EDGE Chase Winovich
121- WR Jalen Hurd
157-DT Khalen Saunders
James Brown from Franklin, Tennessee
If I had my way, I'd love to see the Titans' Draft unfold this way -
Round 1 - Christian Wilkins DT Clemson
Round 2 - Elgton Jenkins C Mississippi State
Round 3 - Terry McLaurin WR Ohio State
Round 4 - Joe Jackson DE/OLB Miami (FL)
Round 5 - Isaac Nauta TE Georgia
Round 6 - Shareef Miller OLB/DE Penn State
Carlos Arredondo from Guanajuato, Mexico
Hi Jim! First to Titans draft I would love take Ed Oliver but it will be so dificult to be at 19 available, I like the idea to trade back and obtain more picks and take the best IOL available like Bradbury or the best TE like Fant, even DT Simmons, and with the extra picks I would like to trade up for WR Hakeem Butler, he could be a beast, to 4th, 5th, take the best defensive player available could be Omenihu, Ximines or Ferguson even Winovich as DE, maybe another DB, haha well, it is what I would do, I hope JR and MV make a great Draft and take the best players to do great things in next season. Titan Up.
Shayne Pickering from Chattanooga, Tennessee
Hey Jim. I'm going to play fan GM here. If I was Jon Robinson, I would take Christian Wilkins at 19. I think he would be there if the Dolphins don't take him because of all the trades that will probably occur. If not, trade down and take DT Jerry Tillery. In the 2nd, take EDGE rusher Oshane Ximines. Ximines, Landry, and Wake would take this defense to the next level. In Round 3, take a receiver like Kelvin Harmon, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, or Miles Boykin to play the Y. We don't need another SLOT receiver. We have Humphries, Taylor, Batson, Ross, Raymond, and Roger Lewis at the SLOT. In the 4th an iOL like Dru Samia, Nate Davis, or B.J. Autry would add depth to the O-Line. In the 5th, take a TE to develop behind Delanie Walker. A guy like Caleb Wilson, Kaden Smith, or Alize Mack would be really beneficiary down the road for the Titans. In the 6th Round, take a strong safety for depth. Right now, we only have Vaccaro. Shall something happen to him, we don't have anyone to fill the role. Tackling Machine Andrew Wingard or Lukas Denis would make sense here. Also, maybe Qb with Jordan Ta'amu still on the board. Thanks and GO TITANS!
Pearce Neal from Newport Beach, California
I think with the 19th pick, we'll take a flyer on Marquise Brown or Jeffery Simmons if all of the top pass rushers including Wilkins, Burns, and Sweat are off the board. If Wilkins or Burns are there, I think it will be one of them.
Preet Singh from Baltimore, Maryland
As far as the draft is concerned I believe with the 19th pick the Titans should select T.J Hockenson. He will get to learn behind a great leader in Delanie Walker and also have an immediate impact as a blocker in the scheme Arthur Smith would like to run. I doubt he will be available at 19 and in that case I would suggest taking Christian Wilkins who will allow us to get Jurrell Casey some inside help. Finally, I think they could take a chance on a guy like Jeffery Simmons who has unbelievable upside if healthy. We recently signed Cameron Wake and have Harold Landry entering his second year so I believe this allows us to take a flyer on a guy like Simmons. Appreciate all you do Jim and #TitanUp.
Jason Anthony from Kingston, Tennessee
My dream scenario (I will preface this by saying I am a Mississippi State fan):
Trade down to 24-27 range in the 1st and pick up an extra 3rd round pick.
1st: Jeffery Simmons - DT, Miss. State
2nd: Deebo Samuel - WR, S. Car
3rd: Dawson Knox - TE, Ole Miss
3rd: Jachai Polite - Edge, Florida
4th: Dru Samia - OG, Oklahoma
5th: Trysten Hill - DT, UCF
6th: Bryce Love - RB, Stanford
Some will say that's too low for Polite, but he is falling down draft boards because of his poor combine performance. I've routinely seen him in the 3rd now in many mocks, and I think he'd be worth the gamble that late because of his skill set.
Steven Lyles from Franklin, Tennessee
I have an interesting potential trade scenario. There has been a lot of talk about trading down but if Ed Oliver falls to out of Top 10, look for JRob to Trade UP to 12/13 (Green Bay/Miami - sending a 1st & 3rd+) to get ahead of ATL. Some are worried about Oliver's size and I think Denver and Cincinatti take QBs at 10/11. This is what I would call the Titans best case scenario for the 1st Round.
Vincent Williams from Palo Alto, California
With the 19th pick in the 2019 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans select .... Brian Burns from Florida State.
Kenston Farmer from Memphis, Tennessee
I hope we take Hollywood Brown, Christian Wilkins, or Jeffrey Simmons! Go TITANS!
Brandon Conoley from Orlando, Florida
I believe we need a C/G whichever one, Outside receiver, 3-4 DE and an edge player. My perfect draft would be:
1.19 either trade back or Wilkins Burns or Bradbury.
2. Possibly trade up for a chance at Deebo Samuel or wait and select JJ (Standford)
3. Oshane ximinies / Dre mont Jones / Hill (UCF)
I believe the priorities in order are: EDGE, WR, IOL,IDL
Marquis Green from Charlotte, North Carolina
AJ Brown, Harry or Metcalf at 19, DL, EDGE, OL round 2-4 && Jalen Hurd in the later rounds
David Stalder from Albuquerque, New Mexico
Tuesday night. Draft on Thursday. It'll be Hockenson or Fant if still available, then Wilkins, if available; if not them, then we traded the pick.
Jordan Clift from Bowling Green, Kentucky
I know that this is unlikely to happen barring a substantial trade up, but Ed Oliver would look, and play, amazing in the two tone blue! TitanUp!
Freddie Bell from Columbia, Tennessee
Honestly I would take Greedy Williams if he is there at 19. We need another lock down corner. Malcolm Butler just isn't that great and not worth all the money we paid him. It's a passing league and if you have great coverage I have faith in our current line. The only person Pass Rusher we will really miss is Orakpo and he's replace with wake.
Bob Clouse Yukon Oklahoma
Hey there Jim! Coming at you as a bigtime Titans fan from the state of Oklahoma, you can guess what I am hoping for tonight. Mr. Marquise Brown is as explosive as they come and would provide a much needed jolt of excitement to an offense in need of explosive plays. As nice as that sounds, I think J-Rob is better off investing in the trenches. Ideally, we could trade down in round one and some extra to grab an additional second rounder. Take the best edge/ d-tackle available in round 1 and grab an OG and WR in round 2 where some quality options are hopefully still available. Ultimately, I hope they put Mariota in the best position to succeed in his contract year. That guy is special and he is going to win a Super Bowl for somebody, hopefully us. JRob knows what he's doing and has done a fine job of turning this franchise around so I'm sure whatever he decides on Thursday night will be golden. Let's be great this year!
Have a great draft weekend!
