The fun part about having a Community Mock Draft, filled with different folks with different perspectives, is that sometimes you get the sort of picks that you might not see anywhere else. With his selection for the Tennessee Titans, BVB fan has given us such a selection. That's not to say it's a bad selection, because I don't necessarily think it is, but it's one I'm not sure I've seen anywhere else.
With the second pick in the 2015 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans select. . .
Amari Cooper, wide receiver, University of Alabama
Here is the reasoning that BVB fan gave me for the selection of Cooper.
Amari Cooper makes the Titans receiving corps among the best in the NFL. If Zach Mettenberger doesn't succeed with this group of receivers its time to look for elsewhere for a quarterback. Taking a young quarterback with upside like Bryce Petty might be a good insurance policy for Tennessee in day 2 of the draft.
There are plenty of directions that the Titans could go with this pick, to be certain. To this point, most mocks have them taking either a quarterback or someone like USC defensive tackle Leonard Williams. But if the Titans truly believe that Mettenberger can be their quarterback of the future, it is certainly in their best interests to surround him with the most talent possible, and they don't come any more talented than Cooper at the wide receiver position in this draft class. He was the best receiver in college football last season, and probably the most NFL-ready of this year's group. He would immediately jump to the top of the depth chart for the Titans and make an impact. Again, it's a surprising pick, but "surprising" doesn't necessarily mean "bad."
