In the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft later on tonight, there are a large number of wide receivers who could be taken later on. However, there seems to be some belief that the Tennessee Titans could start the string of receivers earlier than expected in the first round.
ProFootball Talk’s Mike Florio said the Titans could look to take a wide receiver like Josh Doctson if they decide to pass on an offensive tackle. The Titans were originally slated to take Laremy Tunsil with the top pick before trading it to the Los Angeles Rams and moving back to No. 15 two weeks ago.
Many believe Tennessee should focus on building around quarterback Marcus Mariota and that could mean either finding him some elite protection or putting some weapon around him. Doctson would be a great way to start the build around the 2015 first-round pick.
Taking someone like Doctson would also give Titans’ leading receiver Kendall Wright some help on the outside. To see exactly what Tennessee is planning on doing tonight, you can tune into the NFL Draft live on ESPN and NFL Network at 8 p.m. EST
