With the 18th pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans select...

John Ross, WR, Washington

The selection and write-up were made by Legoman0721:

This isn't the most creative pick in the world, but if something just works, I'll roll with it. After my co-GM npchristman threw up the alley-oop with the best cover corner in the draft to shore up that side of the ball at pick 5, I'm going to throw it down with the flashy windmill dunk and take the speedster out of the Pacific Northwest. John Ross brings a big play threat that they really need, and Ross should be an upgrade on the departed Kendall Wright. This will give Mariota an explosive option when the play breaks down or to give the other guys more room to work. If he can stay healthy, he'll be a playmaker right away and for several years.

Other players I wanted were Corey Davis and Gareon Conley, and I considered David Njoku for this pick. With Delanie Walker still playing steadily, they can afford to take an athletic TE prospect later in this very deep draft. There's nobody else even close to Ross as a vertical weapon, so I took this opportunity to add a weapon to Marcus Mariota's arsenal.

Pokorny: Back at pick five, I mentioned the flexibility that Tennessee has with having their young franchise quarterback and two first-round picks in place. I don’t see how the Titans can go wrong with this year’s draft, and Lattimore and Ross are just one of the scenarios I’d love to see for them.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are up next, led by Ezweav.
