Not that the ankle injury was overly concerning to National Football League teams, especially the Titans, who now have what they believe will be their franchise quarterback (Mariota), running back (DeMarco Murray) and receiver (Davis).

As the draft results started popping up on my phone, I was as surprised as anyone. "But again I think we're in a good position at five and 18 to get two good football players if we stay there". The 6-foot-3, 209-pound receiver was dominant against admittedly inferior competition, racking up 97 catches for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns in his senior season.

On November 25, 2016, Davis became the NCAA's all-time leader in receiving yards with 5,278, passing Nevada's Trevor Insley. Davis' polish as a receiver is impressive as well.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson kidded over the weekend he expects Mariota to repay him with a regular shipment of Omaha Steaks. "It's going to be great for us to get to battle against each other".

If you're looking for a real out-of-nowhere story in this draft, Hogan certainly fits.

Linebacker Derrick Morgan, who was also on the Caravan stop, said there's reason to be excited. "I just wanted to set that standard and tone so they know I am not here with the big head because I came here in the first round".

I think there is a lot to be said for what Weems can do in the coverage game, and it could be down to he and Tre McBride for a spot on this team. "I'm definitely speechless. It doesn't get no better than playing with a quarterback like Marcus".

DCFS spokeswoman Veronica Resa said in an email that DCFS personnel had been at the home about 3:20 p.m. The Will County Sheriff's Office said investigators will hold a news conference Thursday morning.

Combined with using the fifth pick overall on wide receiver Corey Davis of Western Michigan, the Titans have used three of their first four selections on pass catchers. He said "I wore that number so you better turn up".

Mariota traveled to OR over the weekend to see his younger brother play in the team's spring game. You can go back to Randy Moss since Marshall was in the MAC.

Mariota said he's jogging, and reminded "it's a process". In fairness to her, she said all nice things about her little brother-that he worked so hard, and that deserved his big payday, and that she was proud of him.

Roughly 1,000 soldiers and their families turned out for autographs and pictures at the Fort Campbell PX.

The Titans had their choice of wide receivers with the fifth overall pick, including Clemson's Mike Williams and Ross.

"It is incredible", Mariota said.

Grade: I'll give them a "B" with a chance to move into the "A" category.
