2017 NFL Mock Draft: Tennessee Titans Select CB Marshon Lattimore at No. 5

NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Ohio State vs Clemson Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With the 5th pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans select...

Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

The selection and write-up were made by npchristman:

For this pick I could have gone a lot of different places, especially with the two biggest holes on the Titans’ roster being CB and WR. Although the Titans signed Logan Ryan at the beginning of the offseason to a 3-year deal, CB is still a massive need and in the draft with the most DB depth probably ever, I have them taking the best of the bunch. Ryan is not a true #1 CB and on the Titans’ defense, that ranked 31st against the pass this past year, Lattimore will immediately come in and make the secondary better. Lattimore may be raw (and Conley might have been better during their time at OSU), but with all the tools he possesses and learning under Dick LeBeau, Lattimore has a great chance to be an elite CB.

A concern for Lattimore are his hamstrings, but as a current OSU student and someone who has watched him play for a while now, I 100% believe he will be fine once he is in the NFL. Plus OBJ has the same hamstring problems and he seems to be working out just fine for the Giants.

I could have gone WR or TE here but I felt that at #5, even with the fantastic CB depth, there wasn’t great value there for a WR and that at #18, Lego will probably still have one of the big 3 WR’s and potentially both O.J. Howard and David Njoku to pick from.

Pokorny: I bought in to Marcus Mariota last year, and when your quarterback of the future shows so much promise, it has to be a relief to be able to focus on other positions in the first round. Having two first round picks also buys the Titans more flexibility in round one, and I have no qualms about them trying to upgrade that secondary so Mariota doesn’t have to keep playing in shootouts.

The New York Jets are up next, led by jdreyfuss.
