11 receivers on the roster right now really counts against Wilson here. Five receivers are about the same height and bigger than Wilson as well, so there’s a bit to overcome from a size standpoint for the lanky ex-WSU receiver. On top of that the Titans really have an issue on defense that needs to be fixed. Even with the 9 picks that they have, it may be very focused on the defensive side and both lines.
The Perfect Storm:
I really, really like Marquess on this team. I know they have the prototype on the team already like five times already, but I don’t see any reason why Wilson wouldn’t make that roster and make an immediate impact. If he’s still around in the 4th, he begins to make a whole lot of sense for Tennessee.
Pairing him in some form or fashion with Kenny Britt, Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Kevin Walter gives the Titans some very explosive weapons. Throw in Marc Mariani and maybe Lavelle Hawkins and we’re talking about a very dangerous receiving corps for newly acquired Ryan Fitzpatrick or the young Jake Locker. Not only would it be a cool dynamic having a Husky throw to a Cougar whom he played against just 3 seasons ago, but it would also really spread the field for Chris Johnson, who will finally have an un-stacked box to run against. There are other receivers that make that possible, but with Tennessee’s defensive needs it highly possible that Wilson would be the best available when they start looking for offensive weapons.
