The 2010 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft is underway, with each SB Nation blogger making selections for their respective teams. Jimmy, lead blogger at SB Nation's Tennessee Titans blog, Music City Miracles, checks in to make the No. 16 overall selection in this year's mock. Take it away, sir!
With the No. 16 overall pick in the 2010 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans have selected Kyle Wilson, cornerback, Boise State.
Jimmy says: Jeff Fisher said at the end of 2009 that this off-season would be all about upgrading the defense. The two biggest holes remaining are defensive end and cornerback. Kyle Wilson is the best available corner at this point and may be the best available defensive player. He is also the prototypical Jeff Fisher corner because he is good in run support. Wilson would also help the Titans return game woes from a year ago.
Mocking Dan reacts: With Derrick Morgan going the previous pick, Tennessee would kind of be in a tough spot. The selection of Wilson is a good one, but still a touch early.
But Wilson would give the Titans a man-cover cornerback to team with Cortland Finnegan. That would allow the team's safeties to move around the field more and open up bigger gaps for the defensive line. The Titans defense showed that when the line plays well, the entire defense does. But the secret to that is sound cornerback play, which the team would have with Wilson on board. It would also have one of the best special teams players in this year's draft.
Mocking the Draft's Top 5 remaining prospects: 1 - Dez Bryant/WR/Oklahoma State, 2 - Everson Griffen/DE/USC, 3 - Jermaine Gresham/TE/Oklahoma 4 - Anthony Davis/OT/Rutgers 5 - Sergio Kindle/OLB/Texas
