I bet Scine yelled through his KKK hood, "FINALLY! Fitzpatrick! Ol' Fitzy's a nice white Irish receiver to play the slot!"

This guy is a lot better than he is getting credit for here.   Louisville was garbage on offense since Lamar Jackson left and they could hardly execute anything beyond screens. The offense w

Seems like maybe we should wait and see how he plays before we judge him…

Greg Cosell said on the radio that he likes this receiver and that he reminds him of Davante Adams coming out. 

 

Really needs to contribute in 2021.

 

Maybe my opinion has been clouded on Fitzpatrick after spending the last couple of months watching guys that were expected to be top 75 picks and are clearly multiple tiers higher in terms of talent compared to Fitzpatrick.

 

Just don't see Fitzpatrick being anything more than a WR4 in the NFL.

My best guess on the decision to trade up for Dez: He was the last available WR in the tier of WRs who they imagined could have an early impact. It was less about really wanting Dez, and more about needing to not leave the draft without a WR who could compete for snaps day 1.

 

No doubt there was a element of desperation after not getting a WR/TE on days 1 or 2, we also know via JRob's post day 2 presser that he was close to taking a TE and also attempted multiple times to trade up for an offensive skill position player.

 

No one outside that Titans war room can speak with any certainty but the most likely scenario is they planned on taking either a TE/WR in and around that pick at 85 and simply couldn't position themselves to get the guy they wanted.

 

That run between 77 and 83 that saw Josh Palmer, Hunter Long, Dyami Brown, Tommy Tremble taken likely contained the guy JRob wanted.

People will chime in with " well how do you KNOW they wanted one of those guys" but this seems probable to me. I'm sure they liked him but I'm not convinced Fitzpatrick was plan A.
