Slides (Foster), surges (Davis) from 1st round of NFL draft

Posted May 03, 2017

5 and 18 picks, with the former selection the result of the Rams faltering to a 4-12 mark previous year.

The Titans took another wide receiver with their third pick, and the 72nd pick overall, Taywan Taylor from Western Kentucky.

As for himself, Mariota said he's still on track while working his way back from the fractured fibula he suffered in the team's December 24 contest at Jacksonville. "We just really liked the fit they brought on the field, in the building and we're really excited about these two guys". "I came back into the room where all my family was and tried to keep it a secret from them, but they got it out of me".

Titans fans have to trust Robinson's judgment. Despite a size disadvantage against most receivers he faced, Jackson tallied 19 pass breakups and six interceptions in three years. After just missing out on the playoffs last season, Tennessee should be part of the party in 2017.

Kiper had Tennessee selecting North Carolina receiver Mack Hollins 83rd overall and Virginia Tech tight end Bucky Hodges at No. 100. Prior to the draft, Robinson even let it be known that the odds he would go wild in his second draft were 50-50.

"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 thought cornerback Adoree' Jackson would go later in the first round, but he's still going to be a good player. In his new situation, Davis joins a receiving corp highlighted by Tajae Sharp and Rishard Matthews.

Connor McDavid's defense an issue for Oilers coach
Can the Oilers put a vice-grip on the series with a victory tonight? We knew we were in a real dogfight then. Anaheim Ducks lock horns with Edmonton Oilers in the Game 3 of the Western Conference Second Round on Sunday.

The Tennessee Titans addressed their two biggest concerns by selecting Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis and Southern California cornerback Adoree' Jackson in the first round of the National Football League draft.

It was an no-brainer decision for Tennessee's front office, as Lewan is coming off a Pro Bowl season and has been key to the franchise's turnaround. So it is going to be great to battle against each other.

The Bears surprisingly traded up from No. 3 to No. 2 to take North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but he had always been speculated to be the first QB off the board. 5 and 18. Trading down could help the Titans fill the void that was created when they dealt their second-round selection in the deal to acquire Conklin.

The Tennessee Titans are doing their best to ensure quarterback Marcus Mariota has as many targets as possible. "They called me, I picked up the phone and they said they wanted me and I lost it". "It gives you flexibility with multiple picks to move up and down the board and position yourself to bolster the roster".

Looking at the NFL Trade Chart, the fifth overall pick is worth 1700 points, while the 12th overall pick is worth 1200 points.
