NFL Draft 2011: Are the Tennessee Titans Addicted to Wide Receivers?
NFL Draft 2011 Could Be a Chance to Buck the Trend for the Titans
There are three things you can count on in life: Death, Taxes, and the Titans taking a wide receiver in the draft.
Or at least that is how it has been since 2005.
In a draft trends article written by the National Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh, the Titans have been receiver happy in recent years.
““Since 2005, the Titans have selected an average of 2.0 wide receivers per draft. Tennessee has landed at least one wideout in each of the past six drafts and has selected as many as three wide receivers two times in the last six years.”
According to ESPN’s AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, the Titans have been missing on most of those receivers.
“The all-star receiver roster of those past six drafts: Courtney Roby, Brandon Jones, Roydell Williams, Jonathan Orr, Paul Williams, Chris Davis, Joel Filani, Lavelle Hawkins, Kenny Britt, Dominique Edison, Damien Williams and Marc Mariani. The lone Pro Bowl appearance was Mariani last year -- as a return man.”
The arrest of Kenny Britt might make receiver a little more of a need than the Titans originally thought but goodness, the Titans are turning into the Lions with their love for receivers that end up being flops.
