2015 NFL Draft – 2nd Overall Pick – Titans draft Marcus Mariota

After almost dealing away the pick (which they still may), Tennessee drafted Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

If he stays, Mariota doesn’t have a lot to work with. His top receiver is Kendall Wright and has the disappointing Bishop Sankey behind him. The line protecting him isn’t great either. However, some project him to be better than Winston and has the added dimension of his legs. He also has coach Ken Whisenhunt, he of the Philip Rivers reclamation project, to guide him.

For dynasty purposes, he could be drafted ahead of Winston if your dynasty team can afford to let him ride the bench. Most likely won’t be in the first for most drafts but could be a good value in the second.

Dynasty Impact – Tennessee Titans select Taylor Lewan

lewanDynasty Impact:¬†This should be considered an incomplete as the Titans are almost certainly not going to go with Shonn Greene at running back. The same could be said at quarterback as Jake Locker doesn’t appear to be the long-term answer. Whoever they draft at both¬†positions will benefit from Lewan who can pass protect and run block well. Won’t be an elite tackle a la Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews but should be a good tool.
