The Titans are talking today to maybe the most high profile player in this years NFL Draft, that being Cam Newton, who could go as high as one, but would have to fall quite a bit to reach the Titans.
Newton is scheduled to visit the Titans today. It’s one of his nine pre-draft stops, and the impression Newton makes with those teams could go a long way in deciding whether he goes first overall to the Panthers, slides to the Titans at eight or lands somewhere else.
“We know he loves to play the game of football,” ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said on Wednesday. “But this isn’t the NBA. In the NBA you don’t have to worry about (preparation and) that kind of stuff, but in the NFL you have to. It requires a lot of film study and you have to love it and that is what they are trying to find out about Cam Newton.
“Things came easy to Cam Newton (at Auburn). I hope he doesn’t think they’ll come easy in the NFL.”
Teams are allowed to bring in 30 players for pre-draft visits. The Titans, who have announced their intention to part ways with Vince Young, are hosting a number of quarterbacks.
