Titans signed Louisville DT DeAngelo Brown.

Brown (6’0/312) rebounded from an injury-riddled beginning to his career to lead Louisville in tackles for loss (13) and tally three sacks as a fifth-year senior, earning third-team All-ACC from the conference’s coaches. One of the strongest players in the nation, Brown anchored the Cardinals’ defense at nose tackle, winning with strong hands and frequently splitting double teams. Not invited to the Combine, Brown pumped 36 bench-press reps at the Cardinals’ Pro Day. Brown is a stocky power player who projects as an early-down run stuffer in the Bennie Logan mold.

Titans selected California RB Khalfani Muhammad with the No. 241 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Muhammad (5'7/170) is a scatback through and through who doubled as a track star at Cal-Berkley, and ran 4.38 at the Golden Bears' Pro Day. He topped out at 13.8 carries per game as a senior, averaging 5.4 yards per tote with 17 receptions. The Titans will likely give Muhammad a look on special teams due to his speed, although he averaged an underwhelming 22.2 yards per kickoff return in his college career and did not return punts.
Apr 29 - 6:19 PM

Titans selected Villanova OT Brad Seaton with the No. 236 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Seaton (6’9/329) made 29 starts on the Wildcats’ line, rebounding from a year-ending knee injury as a junior to earn second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association accolades from the conference’s coaches as a senior. A passable athlete for his monstrous size, Seaton ran 5.37 at Villanova’s Pro Day and benched 225 pounds 24 times. Not powerful but balanced and fundamentally sound, Seaton has some potential to grow into a quality swing tackle.
Apr 29 - 6:09 PM

Titans selected TCU OLB Josh Carraway with the No. 227 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Carraway (6’3/242) made 33 starts on the Horned Frogs’ defensive line, tallying 27.5 career tackles for loss, 19 sacks, and three forced fumbles and earning first-team All-Big 12 in each of his final two years. While Carraway’s size falls well short of NFL edge-player standards, he has long arms (34 1/4") and displayed impressive first-step burst and explosiveness as an outside rusher and pursuit player at TCU. Carraway is unlikely to develop into an every-down player, but he has a chance to become an impact sub-package force.
Apr 29 - 5:48 PM

Titans selected Chattanooga OG Corey Levin with the No. 217 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Levin started every game at left guard for the Mocs last season while being honored as a second-team AP All-American. He also garnered first-team All-SoCon status while bringing home his second straight Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the Southern Conference's top offensive lineman. Standing at 6'4 with monster 10 7/8" hands, Levin is an impressive prospect but faces a steep learning curve as he makes the leap from FCS to the pros.
Apr 29 - 5:32 PM

Titans selected UCLA LB Jayon Brown with the No. 155 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Brown (6’0/231) succeeded Myles Jack as the Bruins’ middle linebacker, making 21 starts and tallying nine career tackles for loss with 15 pass breakups, two forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries. Brown led the Pac 12 in tackles (119) as a senior, earning first-team all-conference recognition. Severely undersized for an NFL linebacker, Brown’s calling cards are his stingy coverage skills and extensive special teams background. With adequate 4.67 speed, Brown has some potential to become a Wesley Woodyard-type player.
Apr 29 - 2:31 PM

Titans selected FIU TE Jonnu Smith with the No. 100 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Smith (6’3/248) was a rare four-year starter at tight end for the Panthers, setting several school records with a career 178-2,001-18 (11.2 YPR) receiving line and earning second-team All-Conference USA as a senior. He proceeded to destroy the Combine, running 4.62 with freaky vertical (38") and broad (10’7") jumps and top-four SPARQ results in this loaded tight end class. Smith shows a tendency to body catch and is facing a significant jump in competition, but he was a better blocker than expected on college film, and his athleticism is evident as a post-catch playmaker. If coached up properly, Smith could surprise as a Delanie Walker-type weapon in the middle of the field.
Apr 28 - 11:18 PM

Titans traded up with the Patriots to select Western Kentucky WR Taywan Taylor with the No. 72 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The Titans surrendered picks No. 83 and 124 to select their second receiver of the draft. Taylor (5’11/203) broke every single-season and career receiving record in Hilltoppers history, parlaying 253 catches into 4,234 yards (16.7 YPR) and 41 TDs as a four-year starter and two-time first-team All-C-USA pick. When facing SEC defenses, Taylor went 9-121 against Alabama and 9-112 against Vanderbilt. Taylor also shined without pads, posting 81st-percentile SPARQ results and the top three-cone time (6.57) among wide receivers at the Combine. A favorite of Rotoworld draft maven Josh Norris, Taylor has an Emmanuel Sanders-level ceiling as a wideout capable of winning both outside and in the slot.
Apr 28 - 9:58 PM

Titans selected USC CB Adoree' Jackson with the No. 18 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Jackson (5’10/186) was a jack of many trades for the Trojans, scoring eight return TDs, six more at receiver, and intercepting six passes with three forced fumbles at cornerback. He won the 2016 Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. Jackson is experienced shadowing No. 1 wideouts, and also ran track at USC. He showed unsurprisingly well at the Combine, blazing 4.42 with a respectable 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Jackson is a smallish gambler who may best project to the slot, but his twitchy athleticism, natural ball skills, and versatility should earn him early playing time. He'll be an immediate contributor in the return game.
Apr 27 - 10:21 PM

Titans selected Western Michigan WR Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Davis (6’3/209) graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leader in receiving yards (5,278), tallying 331 career receptions (15.9 YPR) and 52 touchdowns and earning 2016 MAC Offensive Player of the Year. Also smart, Davis scored 31 on the Wonderlic Test. Post-season ankle surgery prevented Davis from testing before the draft, and he did drop 11 passes as a senior. A plus-sized wideout who moves like a smaller man, Davis showed impressive quickness for his size on tape and dominated after the catch a la early-career Brandon Marshall. Davis drew pre-draft comparisons to Michael Thomas and Keenan Allen. Tennessee is a strong fit for Davis' immediate fantasy outlook with high-level quarterback play and non-dominant talent in the rest of the Titans' pass-catcher corps.
Apr 27 - 8:44 PM

Titans GM Jon Robinson said there is a "50/50" chance he will be able to trade down in the first round.

Sitting just ahead of the Jets, the Titans could be in a prime spot if the Browns decide to pass on UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall. Any team which covets Trubisky will want to jump New York to ensure they land him, and that gives Tennessee more leverage than some of the other teams looking to move down. The Titans are likely looking to recoup the second-round pick they traded away last year.
Apr 27 - 8:41 AM

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have "considerable interest" in Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, and Davis is "one of their stronger options" at the No. 16 overall pick.

Wilson presently covers the Texans, but he wrote for the Carroll County Times and Baltimore Sun for many years on the Ravens' beat, so his reporting is noteworthy. The Ravens' wideout group is among the weakest in football with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman returning atop the depth chart. Davis has the best game film of any receiver in this draft. He played in the MAC, however, and did not work out before the draft due to ankle surgery.
Apr 26 - 9:35 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Titans "already have received offers" for their No. 5 overall pick and are contemplating a trade to move back in the draft.

Most teams in the top-10 apparently want to move back, but you have to find a trade partner. Titans GM Jon Robinson might have one, and he sits in a good spot just ahead of the Jets at No. 6. Teams may be looking to jump ahead of New York possibly for a quarterback, and No. 5 could be a landing spot for the Browns looking to come up from 12th overall. Tennessee doesn't currently own a second-round pick, and word is they want one or more of them for Friday.
Apr 26 - 9:48 AM

Titans OLB Kevin Dodd (foot) still isn't 100 percent healthy.

Speaking Tuesday, GM Jon Robinson deemed Dodd's injury "delicate." The 2016 second-rounder is still dealing with pain. It's bad news after Dodd's rookie year was wrecked by foot issues. Dodd had a "preventative" — i.e. necessary — operation last May before struggling through foot problems basically all season. He played 179 ineffective snaps before landing on injured reserve. Dodd should be considered questionable for training camp.
Apr 25 - 3:01 PM

Titans exercised LT Taylor Lewan's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The move was a formality, as Lewan has emerged as one of the league's best young left tackles. The sides will surely talk about a long-term extension this summer. Locking Lewan up now would free 2018 up for Marcus Mariota long-term talks.
