Mike Vrabel on Isaiah Wilson’s future: I wouldn’t even begin to be able to answer

The Titans used the 29th pick of the 2020 draft on tackle Isaiah Wilson, but they reaped no rewards from the selection.

Wilson was arrested for DUI just before the season opener, had two stints on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and was suspended for violating team rules. The rookie played four snaps in his lone appearance of a lost season and head coach Mike Vrabel didn’t touch a question about Wilson’s future during a Monday press conference.

“I can’t comment on Isaiah,” Vrabel said, via Adam Sparks of the Tennessean. “I wouldn’t even begin to be able to eloquently have an answer for you.”

The Titans didn’t get much from second-round corner Kristian Fulton or third-round running back Darrynton Evans, but their struggles are easier to chalk up to the usual rookie transition being more difficult without a proper offseason program. Vrabel’s non-answer Monday suggests the Titans feel differently about Wilson.

  1. When teams draft low IQ players with a history of misbehavior (usually even starting before the 7th grade), what do they expect? A model citizen? A real team contributor? Ha! We see this played out repeatedly in the NFL and other professional sports – where good character falls far down the list for desirable traits.

  2. After the playoffs, a complete review article of the first round would be interesting to read. What did each drafted player do in the NFL this past season? Perhaps, even go back three years.

  3. Major League Baseball figured out sometime in the 1960’s that character counts and started weeding out bad actors once the learned that one of the prime predictors of success or failure of their high draft picks was what the called psychological makeup. Have you noticed how few baseball players get into the kind of on field and off field troubles that seem to be a weekly event in the NFL.

  4. Call him in the office, tell him to shut the door, and chew his ass out. I mean, REALLY chew him out. Yell, curse, you name it. If he wants to behave like an idiot, treat him like an idiot. Who knows? It might be good for him…

  5. “Have you noticed how few baseball players get into the kind of on field and off field troubles that seem to be a weekly event in the NFL.”

    This might seem like a good idea, but the two games are not at all related. Most of the positions on a football squad require both a talent for a passion for violent confrontation that is entirely missing from MLB. So football attracts a very different personality type (as a generality of course).
