FanSided NFL Mock Draft: Tennessee Titans Select Anthony Barr


We are running through our FanSided NFL Mock draft at the moment. This is where the editors around the network make the selections for their teams. We will be publishing the entire mock when it is complete on this site and will post each selection individually as they come in as well. 

Here are the selections that have already been made by our FanSided editors:

1. Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins) Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo
3. Jacksonville Jaguars Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
4. Cleveland Browns Derek Carr, QB Fresno State
5. Oakland Raiders Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
6. Atlanta Falcons Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
8. Minnesota Vikings Blake Bortles, QB, UCF
9. Buffalo Bills Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
10. Detroit Lions Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select…

Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA

Selection made by Joshua Huffman, TitanSized

Here is the analysis on the selection:

The Titans are a primary candidate to trade back into the late teens. A new coaching staff with just six picks and no clear-cut favorite to go at No. 11 unless Khalil Mack or Jadeveon Clowney fell to them (won’t happen).

If the Titans can’t trade out of the pick, they’ll look at players such as Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA and Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina. Reasonable arguments are makable for both players. Linebackers coach Lou Spanos, who served as Barr’s defensive coordinator for the last two seasons, may get first crack at coaching up the highly-touted linebacker at the NFL level.
