Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
|"With his physical tools and good times at the combine the Titans were not expecting Kirkpatrick to be there. With the uncertainty of Finnegan this was the perfect mesh of best player available matching an obvious need. There were some other players in consideration with similar grades but Kirkpatrick won the day."|
Analysis after the jump
I think Telekinesis made a good pick here, grabbing someone that probably has more value than where he was selected. I think that it is pretty obvious that Finnegan is on his way out and wouldn't expect the Titans to try too hard to re-sign him.
However, the Titans may also be losing some defensive linemen, so passing on one of the many defensive tackles on the board or a speed rusher like Melvin Ingram could come back to haunt them.
