With the 33rd pick of the NN community mock draft, Joe the Wizard and the Tennessee Titans select...Breshad Perriman, WR, UCF
Alternates: WR Jaelen Strong, Arizona State, WR Dorial Green- Beckham, Oklahoma, OT Jake Fisher, Oregon.
Two areas where the Tennessee Titans could use some help are offensive right tackle and wide receiver. Five tackles have already been selected leaving the Titan's with a choice of Cedric Ogbuehi or Jake Fisher as the top two OTs on the board. Cedric Ogbuehi tore his ACL at the end of last season and won't be ready in time to make an immediate impact which leaves the Titans with Jake Fisher.
Jake Fisher is a 6'-6", 306 pound tackle out of Oregon. He is a well schooled offensive tackle that can compete for a starting position right away. He has fairly good feet, gets off the ball quickly, and maintains his blocks. On the negative side, he collects a lot of holding penalties and could use to bulk up in the weight room. He also needs to improve as a run blocker. I do not think there is that great of drop between him and other offensive tackles that will be available later in the draft.
There are still a lot of really good wide receivers available, including Breshad Perriman, Jaelen Strong, and Dorial Green-Beckham. All three players are big, fast and could be really good red zone threats. However, one player really stands out from the crowd.
Breshad Perriman is 6'2", 212 pounds with 32" arms and 9-1/4" bricks. He not only has good long speed, but has very quick acceleration and the sudden moves to gain separation on almost every play. I am pretty sure the term "playmaker" was created for this kid. It won't be long until the NFL cornerbacks start losing sleep over him. That is if he can learn to hang onto the ball.
Perriman should work well with Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker, giving Mettenburger some great weapons to work with.
With the 34th pick of the NN community mock draft, Darth Divac and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...Benardrick McKinney, ILB, Mississippi State
Alternates: LB Denzel Perriman, LB Paul Dawson
Tampa Bay has suffered from mediocre LB play from the non-Lavonte David. After losing starter Mason Foster to free agency, that need is only increased, and with the QB problem already fixed by Mariota this is the most logical pick.
Standing 6'4 and weighing in at nearly 250 pounds, the All-American McKinney is built like your classic thumper at ILB, and plays with a mean streak that any coach loves to see in his primary tackler.
With the 35th pick of the NN community mock draft, Mark Balliet and the Oakland Raiders select...Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
Alternates: CB Kevin Johnson, DE Preston Smith
The Raiders attack a position of need while also getting a top player available. Joe Marino from Draft Breakdown talked about Owamagbe and said many things that the tape verifies. His full comment is located below.
"2. Owamagbe Odighizuwa, UCLA - What initially stands out about Odighizuwa is his exceptional first step, burst and get off when rushing the passer. Combining that with his long arms, he can successfully reduce the surface area for blockers to get their hands on him and this allows him to pressure the quarterback consistently. Odighizuwa is relentless in pursuit of the passer and takes good angles. With a mix of power moves and speed, Odighizuwa is a handful for his opponents. An effective run defender, Odighizuwa is able to extend his arms and play with physical hand usage to maintain the edge and shed blockers. His all-around instincts are sound and he has plenty of strength to remain stout when playing the run."
With the 36th pick of the NN community mock draft, kilimanjarbro and the Jacksonville Jaguars select...Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
Having passed up the opportunity to pick a top WR in the first, we don't hesitate to pull the trigger on DGB. Obviously his past and off-field nature is known to all, but his production is worth taking the chance.
Despite having a roster of talented wide receivers, it had been lamented that its a collection of #2s with none of them able to demand the kind of attention to take the heat off other parts of the offense. Until DGB comes to town - and if he can keep his nose clean, he has just significantly improved this team
