Now that the top ten picks are complete, we will start doing two picks per day in order to finish our draft the day before the actual NFL Draft. Today, the Titans and Giants are on the clock.
Like most teams selecting in the upper third of the draft, Tennessee is starting over with a new head coach. Ken Whisenhunt has already made his mark on the team by replacing RB Chris Johnson with Dexter McCluster and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick with Charlie Whitehurst. Reports have been leaked stating that Tennessee will decline to pick up Jake Locker’s 5th year option, making QB a very real possibility for the Titans at pick #11. Also gone is Alterraun Verner, one of the top young CBs in the league. With all the top CBs still on the draft board, Tennessee should also look to upgrade their secondary. Another popular option for Tennessee is OLB Anthony Barr, but their depth chart is stacked with talent at OLB and the MLB position is basically non-existent. This could make ILB C.J. Mosley a much bigger need for the Titans at #11.
The New York Giants have undergone a much needed retooling in their personnel department this offseason. Gone are roster mainstays like WR Hakeem Nicks, TE Brandon Myers, OL Kevin Boothe, DE Justin Tuck, DT Linval Joseph, and LB Keith Rivers. Taking their places are RB Rashad Jennings, WR Mario Manningham, OL Geoff Schwartz, C J.D. Walton, KR Trindon Holliday, LB Jameel McClain, CB Walter Thurmond, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, S Quintin Demps, and DE Robert Ayers. Despite all of these signings, the Giants still have a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. A quick look at their depth chart reveals a lack of talent at TE, DT, OLB, and S. New York will have plenty of options with the #12 pick, who do you think they’ll choose?
