Mock Draft: The Titans’ Offense Gets An Influx Of Youth At WR
No. 9: Tennessee Titans — Malik Nabers, WR, LSU
Deandre Hopkins isn’t getting any younger, and Treylon Burks is trending toward falling short of his first-round pedigree. Malik Nabers is an NFL WR1 upon arrival with phenomenal concentration in contested catch situations and electrifying ability with the ball in tow.
No. 10: Atlanta Falcons — Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois
The Falcons select an heir apparent to Grady Jarrett, who can also play alongside the All-Pro talent. Jer’Zhan Newton is a game wrecker from the interior, showing brute strength in his lower body, a red-hot motor, and the hand usage of a karate black belt.
No. 11: Green Bay Packers — Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA
There are bigger needs for the Packers, but selecting so close to the top 10, the team shouldn’t get hung up trying to fill gaps this early. Instead, why not stack the pass-rushing group with Laiatu Latu? A natural-born quarterback hunter, Latu frequently applies pressure to the pocket.
The Secondary Adds A Building Block In Las Vegas
No. 12: Las Vegas Raiders — Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama
The Raiders have some blue-chip talent on the roster. But the depth chart at cornerback is severely lacking a pillar. Kool-Aid McKinstry is the best player at the position in 2024, giving Las Vegas a difference-maker on the boundary.
No. 13: New Orleans Saints — Rome Odunze, WR, Washington
Outside of Chris Olave, the Saints lack a consistent threat in the passing game. Rome Odunze complements Olave’s skillset well, as the Washington product is a big-bodied, go-up-and-get-it receiver. Odunze is blazing fast as well, adding to his credibility as an instant contributor as a rookie.
No. 14: Denver Broncos — Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State
The Broncos have put together a respectable season following a shaky start. Still, the defense can’t stand pat in the front seven. Jared Verse, a powerful pass rusher and adequate run defender, has 10+ sack potential in Denver.
