Found April 26, 2013 on Total Titans:
The third round of the 2013 round began with a run on cornerbacks.  Three of the first seven picks were corners and the Titans made it four out of eight with the selection of UConn's Blidi Wreh-Wilson. As Tom has noted on several recent occasions, the Titans had an urgent need at corner.  There were questions about who will be the slot man in coverage and there were only three natural corners on the roster - Jason McCourty, Alterraun Verner and Coty Sensabaugh.  Tommie Campbell, who's listed as a fourth corner, remains a project. Wreh-Wilson is tall (6'1") with long arms (32") and should be best in press coverage.  This scouting report twice uses the phrase "short area quickness." According to Titans Radio's Jonathan Hutton, Mel Kiper ranks him as the sixth best corner in the draft and Mike Detillier has him ranked seventh.

Final thoughts before the Tennessee Titans 2013 Draft

The 2012 offseason was a mess for the Titans franchise. The Titans got caught up in the hunt for Peyton Manning and ended with very little that improved the team.

Titans RB Chris Johnson reacts to team drafting Alabama guard Chance Warmack

Tweet   The Tennessee Titans have one of the best running backs in the NFL in Chris Johnson.

Tennessee Titans select CB Khalid Wooten in sixth round

With their sixth round compensatory pick, #202 overall, the Titans selected Nevada CB Khalid Wooten. Wooten appears to be another outside press corner.  He has adequate but not great physical skills and should provide needed depth at the position.   Since both of the corners drafted by the Titans are outside rather than inside guys, I imagine the role of slot corner...

Tennessee Titans select WR Justin Hunter in second round

The Titans moved up six positions in the second round, trading their second round pick, the 40th overall, their seventh round pick (216th), and next year's third round pick for the opportunity to select Justin Hunter.   Hunter is an intriguing prospect.  He has outstanding physical abilities and tremendous potential but on the downside, he's demonstrated inconsistent...

Tennessee Titans select OLB Zaviar Gooden with third round compensatory pick

The Tennessee Titans closed out the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft using their third round compensatory pick, the 97th overall, on Missouri OLB Zaviar Gooden.  I don't get this pick.   Gooden has prototypical Will size at 6'1" 234 pounds.  Fast guy, good in coverage, sounds a lot like Zach Brown, whom they drafted in the second round just a year ago. ...

Tennessee Titans select SS Daimion Stafford in seventh round

With their final pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, #248 overall, the Titans selected Nebraska SS Daimion Stafford. Stafford is a big, physical in the box strong safety, a big hitter who might need some improvement in his coverage skills. If he makes the roster, it appears that he'll be depth behind Bernard Pollard and George Wilson.  Pollard is signed to just a one-year...
