ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. released the latest version of his 2016 NFL Mock Draft on Thursday morning.
Unlike many mock drafts that have been surfacing in recent weeks, Kiper has decided to abandon the common “Joey Bosa to Tennessee” projection and has slated Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil for the Titans’ No. 1 overall pick.
“The No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL draft could end up being directly tied to the No. 2 pick in the 2015 NFL draft,” Kiper wrote.
“In short: The Titans have no choice but to improve their offensive line and do whatever they can to make sure Marcus Mariota is on the field for more than the 12 games he played as a rookie. Getting the offensive lineman with the highest upside in the draft is a good place to start.”
After the Titans pick, Kiper has slated quarterback Carson Wentz to the Cleveland Browns and defensive lineman DeForrest Buckner of Oregon to the San Diego Chargers.
