INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WKRN) – It’s the first day of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana, and it’s a chance for Head Coach Mike Mularkey and General Manager Jon Robinson to watch and meet players who could be wearing a Titans uniform this fall.
With the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Titans are making sure they get it right.
While Robinson addressed the media at Lucas Oil Stadium, he wouldn’t say if the Titans would stick and pick or if they would change their draft stock.
It’s pretty safe to say the Titans are staying mum.
“I think the agenda for this week is really to get to know the players. I’m kind of a close-to-the-vest guy with our cards, and I think that’s important to protect the best interest of our football team but let the fans know we’re headed in the right direction, that change is coming,” Robinson said.
“We’re going to add some players to this football team that are going to make an impact,” the new general manager added.
Mularkey weighed in, saying, “We got to get them right. There is only so many picks; we have to get them right and you only get so much time.”
The head coach added, “You know the demand now of wins is everywhere, and I understand probably more than anybody we’re going to do everything we can to do it right.”
Mularkey said whatever decision they finalize in April, they just want to come out of it as a better football team. “That’s the most important thing.”
The Titans are easily the most popular team at the combine, but it’s a position Mularkey never wants to be in again.
“It is impressive how many people are following you around, how many cameras are following you around,” he said to the media. “I’d prefer not to have this; it just comes with the territory. That’s life with it.”
The NFL Scouting Combine is a vital event in the path to the draft. More than 300 prospects will participate in the combine in their quest to get into the NFL. Read more at NFL.com.
