The Tennessee Titans and GM Jon Robinson made some haughty choices in the 2016 draft, trading away the number one overall selection for a future first round pick and a slew of second round picks, an extra sixth round pick for Guard Andy Levitre and a conditional seventh rounder for RB Terrance West. In all, the Titans draft went extremely well.
Titans coaches are confident that 1st round pick (and 8th overall selection) Jack Conklin will fit right in at right tackle. In the second round, the Titans had three picks with the standout being Alabama RB Derrick Henry. The third round netted Middle Tennessee State Safety Kevin Byard.
The Titans still need to shore up their defensive backfield but the team should improve enough to attempt a push into the playoffs this season. With the shrewd moves made in the draft, the Titans have assured themselves a top draft pick next season in a draft class with much more talent then the 2016 class.

David Cobb noticed Eddie George standing with running backs coach Sylvester Croom and responded as a fellow back on the field would.
“I know Eddie was watching during our half-line drill, so that definitely gave me an extra pep in my step, him and coach Croom behind me. That will definitely do it.”
And that pep, which was hampered when Cobb injured a hammy in the off season, is back with all the pops that he became known for back in college.
“I definitely think that is how I’m going to stay around, if I stay around,’’ Cobb said. “I know what I am here for, so the biggest thing for me right now is to continue to get stronger, continue to stay healthy, and just learn pass pro and different things about the offense. But I also have to continue to play fast and be physical.”
