    Tennessee Titans


    Give general manager Jon Robinson and coach Mike Mularkey credit for knowing that a strong running game will not be enough in the year 2017. The Titans prioritized playmaking throughout their draft in an effort to help out quarterback Marcus Mariota.

    No one expected Western Michigan product Corey Davis to go No. 5 overall after he missed the post-draft process following ankle surgery, but Davis plays more like a true No. 1 receiver than anyone in this class. His combination of strength and quickness should help take a lot of short Mariota throws a long way. The Titans selected another speedster in Western Kentucky's Taywan Taylor in the third round, and it wouldn't be a surprise if both rookies were to contribute early. This is the same team that started 2016 fourth-round pick Tajae Sharpe at receiver all last season despite ho-hum production.
    First-round cornerback Adoree' Jackson out of USC is another player with speed who can put the ball in the end zone. He'll improve Tennessee on all four downs with his return ability; he's a lighter edition of what the franchise once thought it was getting from Adam Jones.

    Tennessee won nine games last season with a meat-and-potatoes roster. This draft brought the sizzle
