Titans NFL Draft Daily (Feb. 12): New Mock Draft Projects Georgia Cornerback to Tennessee
The latest projection from NFL.com’s Chad Reuter isn’t a surprise in terms of position group; the Titans’ pass defense needs help. Instead, Lassiter raises some eyebrows because it’s a name we’ve not yet seen associated with Tennessee.
Lassiter spent three years at Georgia, declaring for the NFL Draft following the 2023 season. The 6-foot, 180-pound defensive back received a high grade from Pro Football Focus (PFF), ranking as the No. 32 prospect in the class.
During his three seasons in Athens, Lassiter totaled 86 tackles, including 8.5 for loss. He was also responsible for 14 passes defended and an interception. The cornerback was a member of Georgia’s back-to-back national championship teams.
Since Tennessee’s season ended in January, the expectation was that the team would target a receiver with its second-round pick. Reuter anticipates the Titans going a different direction.
Kamari Lassiter evaluation
Folks who are unfamiliar with Lassiter will likely get their opportunity to see the former Bulldog during the NFL Scouting Combine in late February and early March.
