Titans draft offensive playmaker, cornerback in 1st round

They made a trade with the New England Patriots, moving up 11 spots to No. 72 overall to select wide receiver Taywan Taylor of Western Kentucky.

He was joined later in the draft by in lineman Dan Feeney, and the pair are expected to be contributors immediately along the line for the newly relocated Chargers as they look to protect All-Pro quarterback Phillip Rivers and provide running lanes for Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon. The Titans are chasing their first playoff appearance since 2008 after going 9-7 last season, a dramatic jump from 3-13 in 2015.

Why did the Titans pick Jackson?

"It went just how we planned it past year", Robinson said, sneaking in another joke.

The Titans swapped their first pick in the third round (No. 83 overall) and their lone fourth-round selection (No. 124) to move up in the third round. Davis is a touchdown juggernaut that showed great production and consistency over his four-year college career. "We were excited to add him when we added him".

Carraway should help on special teams and provide some depth on the outside to help spell starters Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo.

"We talked the other day about making sure the guy was the right fit for our team, and we really liked Corey a lot on his visit", Robinson said. Instead, he was scooped up by the Titans in the first round with the No. 18 selection, giving them another cornerback and a unsafe return threat.

It seems like folks put way more importance on wide receivers being a key part of a playoff team than maybe I do.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected LSU running back Leonard Fournette with the fourth overall pick in the National Football League draft, giving Tom Coughlin the bruising back he craves in his return to the floundering franchise.

"Corey truly had belief in himself", Fleck said.

"I think him getting hurt actually helped him because he couldn't get nitpicked when they start looking at him like, 'Oh, you can't do this". I thought cornerback Adoree' Jackson would go later in the first round, but he's still going to be a good player.

Fellow NFL Network analyst, Charles Davis, expressed his love for Davis, believing he's the No. 1 receiver in this group.

Giving coach Mike Mularkey and quarterback Marcus Mariota more passing targets was the top focus, and the Titans opted for six offensive players out of nine draft picks. "He's great and he's caught everything, but what is going to be his top-end speed?" If the Eagles go receiver with this pick, Davis would be the guy for me.

Robinson said this week that it's "50-50" as to whether the Titans actually will pick at Nos.

As for the Titans' 18th pick?
