For me, trading down out of that second overall pick is the best thing the Tennessee Titans could do this year, and that's exactly what Huggy The Bear did with Caprock High Football's Cleveland Browns. The Titans have already picked up Shane Ray, and now...
With the 19th pick of the 2015 BRB Mock Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Todd Gurley (RB--Georgia).
Once again, I could have gone several different ways here (Much like Mila Kunis. I hope. With Allison Brie. What were we doing again? Oh right, foozball.) But the Titans need an offensive weapon. Their offense is a joke. Bishop Sankey is an okay back, but he's more of a good change of pace guy than a guy you want as your featured running back.
After drafting Ray earlier, I felt it was time to address the pathetic state of the BESF offense. I have hope that Zach Mettenberger can develop into a starting NFL QB (think Matt Schaub during the good years, but with better arm strength.) He won't get far with no run game, which is where we enter Gurley.
Injury concerns aside, Gurley (6'1", 231 pounds) is absolutely, unequivocally the best running back in this draft class. Melvin Gordon is a very good running back, but he does not have Gurley's strength, vision, size, or hands. Gurley has the potential to be the next Adrian Peterson, and Tennessee would be insane to pass up an elite talent like Gurley up at this point in the draft.
My buddy is a Georgia alum, so I watched every game this season and last season. Gurley is an unreal talent. He sheds tackles with ease, finds the hole, and explodes through it (phrasing!). Gurley has home run potential every time he touches the ball. He is every bit the franchise running back that people think don't exist or matter anymore. Decent runners can be found later on, but none of them possess anything near Gurley's abilities.
With Gurley in the fold, the Titans' offense now has a genuine threat outside of Kendall Wright. As with Ray, teams will no longer be able to simply laugh derisively at BESF offensive game film. If the draft does end up like this (with the sister f***ers getting both Shane Ray and Todd Gurley) I will be legitimately worried about them in a year or so. Ray and Gurley are both pedigree players that you can build a team around, and will slowly contribute to the Titans' resurrection from the ashes of failure.
Also include with this pick is a teenth of meth, because Mett's gotta get his fix.
I feel gross, having made these two selections for the BESFs. I need some sexy thoughts.
Insert Mila Kunis and Allison Brie pictures here.
The first RB of the draft is taken and goes to the Titans. Count me in as one of those new age types that doesn't value running backs too highly anymore. Talented as he may be, I don't think Gurley will get the Titans to where they want to go, which is actually just fine by me.
Another excellent write up Huggy. With that, we're now waiting on gm.in.waiting and the Philadelphia Eagles. Your pick is due by 7 PM CT tonight!
