The 2014 NFL Combine is going to be a record breaking one if you ask me. This year’s combine has so many great players who’ll likely be NFL Hall of Fame inductees when their career is over. Some names on this list include: Sammy Watkins, Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Jadeveon Clowney, Anthony Barr, Khalil Mack, Taylor Lewan, Jake Matthews, C.J. Mosley, and so many others. Saturday is day one of the combine. This is a three day event where all the best college football players, who get invited, attend to show off their mad skill while NFL scouts watch and grade them based on these skills. The Titans are one team that have a lot of players to look at in this combine. They need tons of help anywhere they can get it.
The Titans are in need of an offensive lineman, linebacker, defensive end, possibly a cornerback, running back, and strong safety. They could fill some of these holes in free agency, especially by re-signing some of their own free agents. If Tennessee re-signs Bernard Pollard like they’ve made perfectly clear that they want to do and also re-sign Alterraun Verner, if he’s in their price range, to a long term contract to lock him up for the future. The Titans only have an offensive lineman, linebacker, defensive end and cornerback. With 6 picks in the draft, Tennessee have a great chance to fill all those positions with quality players. Now let’s see who Tennessee will likely scout this year.
The person they’ll keep their eyes on the most is going to be Anthony Barr or Jake Matthews. Since Barr is going to fall after Matthews I’d say Barr is going to be their main target. Some other players may include: Khalil Mack, Kyle Van Noy, C.J. Mosley, Taylor Lewan, Dee Ford, Kony Ealy, and Justin Gilbert. Tennessee needs to make use of these draft picks considering the talent this year. If Tennessee wants to be a team other teams dread playing they need to start with their defense!!! They need to draft a defensive player on the first round and again in the fourth. Tennessee is also meeting with Pollard and Verner at the combine to discuss contracts. This is going to be a big weekend for the Titans as they head into March when free agency starts, March 11th to be exact.
