The understatement of this weekend’s NFL Draft: The Tennessee Titans are really excited that they landed Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick.
So stoked, even, that they have already taken a huge billboard ad to welcome the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner to Nashville.
The gigantic Titans ad proclaiming “This Duck Has Landed.”

Yes, it is a huge plug to try to sell season tickets. Heck, any marketing team that doesn’t take advantage of getting a top draft pick on their roster isn’t doing their job.
The ad is also very hopeful–Mariota will, hopefully, be the franchise ingredient to make the Titans a competitive force in the upcoming season and for seasons to come. Sure, it still remains to be seen how well and how quick the former UO quarterback adapts to the NFL. But for the time being, this Duck’s arrival is a new and exciting phenomenon .
