Favorite pick: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty
Twitter’s love for Willis was way over the top throughout the draft process, but he became an intriguing value outside of the first round, and the Titans landed him in the mid-third round. He goes to a great situation where he won’t be expected to see the field in 2022 or even 2023. But Willis will be given the opportunity to develop at his own pace, which is exactly what he needs.
Day 3 pick who could surprise:Kyle Philips, WR, UCLA
The Titans drafted a pair of slot receivers in this class, albeit with very different play styles. Though the Titans are hoping that Burks grows into A.J. Brown’s role, Philips is strictly an underneath target who can find open zones for quick-hitters. What he lacks in long speed, he makes up with his electric footwork and short-area burst.
