Titans - Draft Meetings/Visits/Workouts

One thing to keep in mind with guys like Tillery or Polite - the Titans often bring in these guys to get a true read on them and to close the book on their draft grade. To further investigate character issues. This doesn't necessarily mean the Titans are heavily interested when it comes to these kinds of guys. We saw the same thing with Arden Key last year. 

 

It also doesn't necessarily mean that they're not interested in them though. 

 

This is one thing I've noticed about Vrabel and Robinson: The guys they personally work out tend to mean more than the private visits known pre-draft. They had their hands all over Evans and Landry last year

 

This year they've had their hands all over Wilkins, Collier, Lindstrom and Vrabel spent a lot of one on one time with the injured Lawrence. 

 

I think the best way to look at it is - if there's a guy that you think they may draft who was out there performing on their pro day, and Robinson/Vrabel weren't in attendance or didn't privately work them out after, it probably isn't going to end up being that guy. 

Exactly.  These workouts are going to drop as many guys grades as they improve them (or stay the same).

Thus a player coming in could result in JRob losing interest altogether or declining their value significantly.

Obviously if they brought the guy in there was an interest so that much is true.

He was in a crappy system with a crappy QB. 

Yes, there are some things he doesn't do well.  But the things he does well are off the charts.  We actually had someone say they could just cover him with a LB and press him off the line.  One of the things DK does well is blow right past press coverage.  Once he gets a step you now have a 230 pound guy running a 4.3 40. 

 

In college they didn't run that many slants with him.  That is stupid because he can easily get leverage and space on those plays.  So no, as a slot WR he might not be great but as an X WR he could really thrive. 

 

 

There a giant dudes that can fly without production coming into the league every year. 

 

There’s only one Calvin Johnson he’s an anomaly 

 

The best predictor for future success is precious succes and DK was limited.. and his agility traits really are on par with linemen.. and agility traits are far more a predictor of success than 40 time.

Simmons scares the shit outta me personally.Coming off the torn acl in itself is a worry (see Conklin and his performance)so u may have a guy that sits 2019 idc what the doctors say.So ur looking at 2020 befor kid can play full strength and no one knows how he bounces back so that’s all a crapshoot.Add in the off field crap(video)and it’s a hard pass for me.Rather take a safe bet that’s ready to go than a guy I may or may not have within the next year half and also comes with baggage.

Out of the entire list of known 30 visits only Brian Burns would be perceived as a guy that could go around the pick #19 slot, Oliver likely goes top 12 and maybe Tillery sneaks into the back end of the first round if a team is comfortable with some of these hinted at character concerns.

 

Every other guy on that top 30 visit list is 2nd round or later guys.

Yeah, I don't think any of the known visit guys so far will be the pick at 19. Only with a trade down or trade up. 

 

Oliver and Burns will likely be gone.
