Most teams draft a weapon or a blocker right after obtaining a new franchise quarterback, but the Titans' cornerback situation was so dire that they were considering a player at that position atop Round 2. Here's their chance to find help at that spot.
Rd. 2, Pk. 8
Kyle Murphy, OT, Stanford
The Titans had a choice of whether to bolster the offensive line or upgrade the receiving corps with their selection after choosing Marcus Mariota. Either would have been fine, but now they have to address the other spot. A tackle is needed across from Taylor Lewan.
Tennessee grabs a shutdown corner for Dick LeBeau's defense.
Fuller played at a very high level in 2014, racking up 17 passes broken up, two interceptions, 50 tackles and 4.5 tackles for a loss. He shut down East Carolina's Justin Hardy in their matchup. Pittsburgh's Tyler Boyd was a challenge for Fuller, but Fuller held his own.
The younger brother of Bears' 2014 NFL Draft first-round pick Kyle Fuller, Kendall Fuller saw the field immediately as a freshman. He was a Freshman All-American and the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year. Fuller is fast and instinctive, just like his older brother. Kendall Fuller had six interceptions and 58 tackles in 2013.
Pick change; previously Vernon Hargreaves III, CB
Rd. 2, Pk. 7
Shawn Oakman, DE/3-4DE, Baylor
The Titans could use a five-technique for Dick LeBeau's defense.
Many teams anticipated that Oakman would enter the 2015 NFL Draft, and according to multiple teams, they were grading him on Day 2. They felt he lacks instincts and technique, so he needs development. In some ways, Oakman is similar athlete and prospect to Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Margus Hunt, a second-round pick in 2013.
Oakman notched 48 tackles with 18.5 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, three passes batted and three forced fumbles in 2014. Oakman (6-9, 280) cooled down as the season progressed. He looks like a great fit as a five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 defense or base end in a 4-3 defense. Sources said teams have some off-the-field concerns with Oakman that date back to his time at Penn State.
