I wasn't going to do a full mock draft but I'm bored sooooo here we go.

#5. NYJ would be wise to go after Trubisky at #6 so I think Cleveland has to jump them to get their guy.

Titans trade pick #5 and a #83 to Brown for picks #12, #33 and #65.

#12. Corey Davis WR - WMU

JRob loves guys that have a history of producing and bring a "lunch pail" type attitude. I love Corey Davis and I'm sure JRob loves him, too. I think he would fit our offense perfectly. Some people worry about his competition but there have been so many WR's that have come out of small schools and done well in the NFL that I don't care. He is incredibly smooth, has the speed to pull away from defenders, can run any route you want, and is explosive after the catch. I'm all in on Davis.

#18. Gareon Conley DB - OSU

Conley doesn't get the love that his teammate Lattimore does but he is nearly just as impressive and he has the history of production that JRob loves. Conley is a good sized corner at 6 '0" with 4.44 speed. Allowed only 37% completion rate opposite Lattimore which is very impressive, imo. Conley, Ryan and Sims would make for a pretty good young trio.

#33. #33 is always a prime trade down spot in the draft. I think JRob tries to take advantage of that. NYJ got jumped in the 1st for a QB so they want the top QB available here and they jump the 49er's and Bears.

Titans trade #33 to NYJ for #39 and #107


#39. Zach Cunningham ILB - Vandy

I was opposed to Cunningham at first because he tackles like a lion bringing down it's prey - dragging. I think with better coaching he can fix his form, I don't think the coaches at Vandy put a big deal of attention to his tackling form because of his insane production in a very tough SEC. 125 tackles and 16.5 TFL in 13 games. The main reason I'm going for Cunningham here is because of his skills in coverage. Our LB's have been put to shame for YEARS when assigned to TE's and RB's, Cunningham would be a huge improvement in that area. I know Woodyard just signed an extension but it was really more of a money/cap move, imo.

#65 Jourdan Lewis CB - Michigan

A CB? but you just drafted one of those. I know, I know, but I love me some Jourdan Lewis. But, what about the domestic abuse allegations? I don't know if I buy it. it's very suspicious to me that a guy who had never had an issue with the law suddenly hits/chokes his girlfriend of three years 6 weeks before a huge payday. Idk. He could have done it but all reports say he was trying to avoid altercation and even hid in a closet until he could leave. There were also no visible marks on her neck when the police arrived. Needless to say I do think the allegations will cause his stock to drop more thus him being here at #65. Lewis was a standout at Michigan while playing on an island and another JRob production type guy (31 passes defended the past two years combined.) Lewis is too small to be an outside CB in the NFL imo, but I think he could be a star covering in the slot. Ryan, Conley, Lewis, Sims. Very young, but a TON of potential.

#107. Jake Butt TE - Michigan

Back to the Maize & Blue. Butt is more of a traditional TE and will never be Howard or Njoku but he does have reliable hands and isn't afraid to go over the middle. He would've gone higher had he not been injured in the Citrus Bowl (torn ACL.) I think he could fill Fasano's role in his first year once he gets healthy and he can go from there.

#125. Taywan Taylor WR - WKU

One of my favorite underrated players in the draft, Taylor is a slot receiver in the NFL but he was the focal point of WKU's offense. 98 catches, 1,730 yards and 17 TD's as a senior. I know he is a small school receiver in a weak conference but he put up 9 catches and 121 yards against Alabama as a senior so the kid can play. He changes up his speed in his routes very well and is a big threat after the catch. Ran a 4.5 but plays faster. Will challenge Sharpe for playing time right out of the gate.

#164. Ejuan Price EDGE - Pitt

Price has had his share of injuries mostly pectoral related... sound familiar? (Orakpo) Price doesn't have ideal size by any stretch of the imagination at 5'11" but he plays like someone much larger and has several different pass moves. Totaled 13 sacks last year, 5 of which came in one game against Louisville.

Highlights

#214. T.J. Logan RB - UNC

A RB?! WHY UTMOC10?! WHY?! Well, Murray dealt with turf toe the majority of last year and we need a 3rd RB. Logan is a 100% change of pace back and that's all we need. He is on the small side at 5'9" but has speed to burn (4.37 40yd dash.) He can also return kicks. Overshadowed by teammate Hood, Logan has a chance to stick on an NFL roster.

Highlights

#236. Levon Myers OT - Northern Illinois


Not much to say here for a 7th round tackle. Swing tackle who plays a little too upright and can get bull rushed. Could be a capable backup.

Too much Michigan Laughing

Overall it's a pretty good draft but I can't see anyone taking Lewis that high. Also be prepared to be drilled for taking Cunningham anywhere in this draft.

Two players from a top team is too much? Hater... Laughing

I don't think Lewis will fall beyond mid 3rd. He has all the talent and if you read the reports it all sounds fishy. I would really like to get one of Adoree Jackson, Cam Sutton, or Jourdan Lewis as a pure slot guy.

My big thing with Cunningham is I don't think his coaches were worried about fixing his form because his production was so high. I think it's something that could be fixed. At least he wraps up, he just needs to go lower on the bigger guys.

This is a beautiful mock. If we can get Zach to pack some weight he could easily take the starting job with his coverage abilities.
