Titans trade up in 2nd round to draft WR Justin Hunter

The Titans wanted to give Jake Locker another receiver, and they didn't have to go far to find a good one. The Titans took former University of Tennessee wideout Justin Hunter @justinhunter_11 with the 34th overall pick. Tennessee had to give up a second- and a seventh-round pick this year plus a 2014 third-rounder to move up six spots and select the speedy, rangy Hunter. Hunter is 6 foot 4 inches. He ran a 4.44 40-yard dash with positional bests in the vertical leap (39.5 inches) and the board jump (136 inches) at February's combine.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hunter may not have as much upside as college teammate Cordarrelle Patterson, who was chosen by the Vikings in the first round last night. But as listed above, his physical tools are absolutely outstanding, and he should have fantasy value soon. It could come this year if Nate Washington is sent packing and/or if Kenny Britt @KennyBritt_18's knees break down. With Hunter on board, the pressure is on Britt to show that he is worth a big-money deal as he enters his contract year. A trio of Hunter, Britt and Kendall Wright should mean good things for Locker and a little less defensive attention on Chris Johnson.
