Titans' Jayon Brown: Tennessee bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans selected Brown in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 155th overall.

Brown's a bit undersized as an outside linebacker at 6-foot, 231, but he was an absolute tackling machine in his final year at UCLA. He racked up 119 tackles, including 7.0 for loss as a senior and also showed some ball skills with three interceptions. Brown likely profiles as a special teamer to start his career with the Titans, but he does add depth behind Brian Orakpo at outside linebacker.

Titans' Jonnu Smith: Picked by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans selected Smith in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 100th overall.

Another nice pick for Tennessee, and also yet another pick that significantly empowers Marcus Mariota. Smith (6-foot-3, 248 pounds) is arguably a better pass-catching prospect than Gerald Everett, who the Rams picked in the second round. Smith was highly productive at Florida International, especially in his first two years, when he caught 100 passes for 1,098 yards and 10 touchdowns before even turning 20 years old. He was also great at the Combine, running a 4.62-second 40 while posting a 38-inch vertical and 127-inch broad jump. He's the heir apparent to Delanie Walker.

Titans' Taywan Taylor: Picked by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans selected Taylor in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 72nd overall.

Nice pick. Along with new teammate Corey Davis, Taylor (5-foot-11, 203 pounds) was one of the two most dominant college football wide receivers over the last two years, tearing through nearly every Western Kentucky opponent despite catching passes from inaccurate quarterbacks. Taylor showed off standout workout metrics at the Combine, too, posting a 4.50-second 40-yard dash, 132-inch broad jump, and 10.78 agility score. He's dangerous on short and deep routes alike, creating separation before and after the catch. Stefon Diggs is a safe comparison. This Tennessee offense is poised to really take off.

Titans' Corey Davis: Not worried about ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, said he isn't sure if he will participate in offseason activities or be held out until training camp, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. "The ankle is doing great. I expect I can be on the field tonight, if need be," Davis said. "I don't really know what they're going to do, but I feel like I'm going to be ready. No doubt."

Once projected as a likely top-10 pick, the Western Michigan product was seemingly in danger of falling to the middle part of the first round after an offseason ankle injury prevented him from taking part in pre-draft athletic testing. The Titans apparently aren't too concerned, as his college tape makes a strong argument that he possesses high-end athleticism for an NFL wideout. Listed at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds, Davis had at least 1,400 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in each of his final three college seasons, mixing in some impressive performances against top Big 10 defenses to go along with his consistent dominance in the MAC. He seems to be on track in his recovery from January surgery, with recent reports suggesting he'll be back to full strength within the next few weeks. The Titans may have found Marcus Mariota's go-to receiver, which would allow Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe to fall into the complementary roles that they're probably best suited for. While it would be helpful if Davis took part in the offseason program, the Titans likely will prioritize getting him back to full health for the start of training camp. With fellow top-10 picks Mike Williams (Chargers) and John Ross (Bengals) landing on teams that already have strong receiving corps, Davis has the most obvious path to immediate fantasy relevance among the first-round wideouts, though all three should benefit from playing with established quarterbacks.

Titans' Rishard Matthews: Gets some company in draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews' role as Tennessee's No. 1 wide receiver has been thrown into question with the team's addition of Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Matthews emerged as quarterback Marcus Mariota's preferred red zone threat with nine touchdowns in the final 12 games of 2016, but Davis should immediately siphon off some looks in that area after scoring an eye-popping 52 times in 50 games at Western Michigan. While college football's all-time leading receiver figures to start in two-receiver sets from the get-go as long as he gets the playbook down in time, Matthews is still favored to edge out 2016 fifth-rounder Tajae Sharpe for the spot across from him.
