Titans fill key positions with two first round draft picks


The versatile Jackson not only solves the Titans' need for another starting cornerback to pair with free-agent pickup Logan Ryan, but also has dynamic ability as a return man, something the Titans were lacking past year. "I am excited for our entire draft class". If they need me to block, I'm going to block to the best of my ability. But Davis comes in as Football Bowl Subdivision's all-time leading receiver with 5,285 yards, and being the fifth pick overall - the first wide receiver taken in the draft - ensures the chance to play immediately. For his first task, he will also get to be a little like Walker when he started his career as a second tight end with a major blocking role, with an eye on eventually taking over as the primary receiving once Walker is finished up.

The 6-3, 209-pounder was one of several offensive weapons selected by the Titans early in the NFL Draft.

The Titans have their franchise quarterback in Marcus Mariota. "It's going to be great for us to get to battle against each other". "You never know how it's going to shake out when you move for future picks. I wish I knew what he ran, but he's got a huge upside".

"If I could build a team around any one of those guys, I don't think you could go wrong with any of the three".

"I've got to say that this is pretty exciting, and it would be a blessing to be picked in the second round", said Moton.

"I meant every word", Davis said Thursday night. "And I'm a culture guy".

Jackson is a playmaker who will help immediately in the secondary, and the return game.

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

"I've heard Tennessee, Philly, Cleveland, Baltimore and Arizona", said Davis.

Jackson said he'll eagerly do whatever is asked.

"But I like Philly", Davis told the Carlin & Reese Show.

In the green room at the National Football League draft in Philadelphia in Thursday night, the television cameras all swooped over to another table, in anticipation of who they assumed would be the next pick, the fifth overall pick.

"It is incredible", Mariota said.

For those who think the combine and pro day workouts are overrated, Davis is proof that film comes first.
