After shaking up the draft by taking Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis with the fifth pick, the Titans found another playmaker with the 18th spot.

Tennessee took Southern Cal cornerback Adoree Jackson with its second first-rounder of the night.

Jackson could provide some boost on special teams in addition to his early responsibilities on defense, as he was a proven return man in college. He scored four return touchdowns last year, and had five interceptions, giving them more big-play ability.

Along with free agent pickup Logan Ryan, the Titans have remade their secondary this offseason.

    Solid pick. A physical specimen. CB/ST/WR versatile player, He can do it all. He’s perfect for what the Titans need.

    Oh! But he’s really good at special teams.
    180 5-10. Who is he going to cover?!

    CONSIDERING HE WON THE JIM THORPE AWARD LAST YEAR IN COLLEGE FOR NATIONS BEST DEFENSIVE BACK…IM ASSUMING ANY1 THEY PUT IN FRONT OF HIM.

    Good selection. Helps fill three needs with one player.

    Great Pic. everytime he touches the ball he is a threat to take it all the way.

    This pick scares me a bit just because of his size. The #1 thing he needs to be able to do is cover. And size has been increasingly important these days for covering big WRs. Not saying he can’t make up for that, just don’t know a ton about him. But I trust Robinson’s evaluation so I’m all in.

    He’s shut some tall receivers down. And he’ll get to practice against Davis every day.
