Latest Mel Kiper Mock Draft Has Titans Getting a Steal With No. 11 Pick
The 2023 NFL Draft is just a little more than a week away, set to kick off on Thursday, April 27 and run through Saturday April 29. Collegiate players around the country are moving up and down draft boards.
ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay put together a three-round mock draft on Monday and things are a bit different from their last iterations. While normally these two draft experts release their own respective mock drafts, in this one they both alternated making picks as if they were the GM for each team.
Titans First Round Mock Draft
Mel Kiper had the task of making the Tennessee Titans' selection at the No. 11 spot in the first round. The way things shook out, the Titans may potentially be getting themselves a steal in Round 1.
Kiper has Tennessee selecting Kentucky quarterback Will Levis there. Most mocks have Levis as a lock for a top-10 pick, and some even have him going in the top 5 to a team like the Indianapolis Colts at No. 4.
Levis is drawing a lot of comparisons to Bufalo Bills QB Josh Allen when he came out of college. Both are athletic with a big body and a big arm but have question marks as well. Kiper likes Levis a lot and famously ranked Allen as his best QB in the 2018 NFL Draft, which seemed crazy at the time. Fast forward to today, and he was right on the money.
Yes, the Titans still have Ryan Tannehill, but his future in Tennessee seems murky at best. The Titans drafted Malik Willis last season as well, but what he showed during his rookie year didn't exactly scream confidence.
If Levis falls to No. 11, it wouldn't be surprising at all to see Tennessee pull the trigger and take him.
