Many are projecting the Tennessee Titans to select Marcus Mariota with the second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Even though the Titans have some talented young receivers in Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, they have been spending a lot of time with the top receiving prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft. Alabama’s Amari Cooper, Central Florida’s Breshad Perriman, West Virginia’s Kevin White and Louisville’s DeVante Parker have all had or are taking pre-draft visits to Tennessee. According to sources, Arizona State’s Jaelen Strong can be added to the list, as he will take a pre-draft visit to the Titans.

After losing Nate Washington in free agency, Tennessee could use a third receiver. If the Titans draft Strong to join Wright and Hunter, that could give them a dangerous trio with mismatch size and speed. If the Titans trade down, Strong could be in play for Tennessee, but the more likely scenario is that Strong will be in consideration for Tennessee with the 33rd-overall pick to lead off the second round of the draft.

Strong had 82 receptions for 1,165 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. He’s a big, physical receiver who surprised many with a 4.44 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.
