Will the Titans draft Mariota?
CHICAGO, IL (The Spread) - The Tennessee Titans select Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota in tonight's 2015 NFL Draft?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the odds that the Titans selected Mariota are 10/13, while the odds they don't take him are 10/11. Tennessee currently holds the No. 2 overall pick in tonight's first round. The Buccaneers, who hold the No. 1 overall pick, are expected to take Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.
There were reports on Wednesday that the Browns offered the Titans both the No. 12 overall pick and the No. 19 selection in exchange for the No. 2 pick, but many believe Tennessee would have turned that down. Just a few years ago the Redskins gave up three No. 1 picks in exchange for the No. 2 selection, which belonged to the Rams. Thus, the Browns may have to up their offer.
If the Titans don't take Mariota they will likely go defense, with USC defensive linemen Leonard Williams to Florida's Dante Fowler as options.
