One more run-through with Mel, McShay
By Paul Kuharsky
Mock draft season is rolling to a rousing close. I know you'll miss it terribly. So I offer one last run- through of Mel Kiper Jr. (here's his latest) and Todd McShay's (here's his) work.
Kiper: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
McShay: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
Paul Kuharsky: The more I've thought about it, the more trouble I have getting on board with a tackle at No. 2. They can fill a hole at right tackle easily in later rounds and don't need two left tackles.
Kiper: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
McShay: Dee Milliner*, CB, Alabama
Paul Kuharsky: Kiper passed on guard Chance Warmack and McShay passed on Jonathan Cooper and Warmack. I would see the Titans seeing either of those defenders as a value 10 picks into the draft.
Kiper: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Paul Kuharsky: There may be way too much consensus building for Rhodes in this spot. So I turn skeptical and start to believe they must dislike him. A lot.
Kiper: Robert Woods, WR, USC
McShay: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
Paul Kuharsky: A lot of consensus here on it being a receiver. I bet they are rooting for teams to want to get back into the back of the first round for quarterbacks. They can probably get a receiver from this tier of players with a relatively early second-rounder.
