Titans ‘met extensively’ with Maryland WR Jacob Copeland
The Tennessee Titans are doing their homework on wide receivers for the 2023 NFL draft as the team continues to have a dire need at the position following two weeks of free agency where the team has been silent.
According to Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline, the Titans have “met extensively” with Maryland wide receiver Jacob Copeland.
Receiver Jacob Copeland also sat on his Combine numbers and did position drills. Copeland, who was timed as fast as 4.37 seconds during the 40 in Indianapolis, met extensively with the Titans, a franchise that needs a speed receiver.
Copeland recently took part in the Maryland pro day, where the Titans had special teams coaches in attendance.
The former Gator-turned-Terrapin never posted eye-popping numbers in college but he does bring the element of speed Tennessee is looking for. Here’s more on him, per Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.
Explosive athlete with NFL size and traits but lacking an NFL skill set at the position. Copeland clearly has the athletic profile of an NFL wideout and that will make him worthy of attention. His production has been average, though, and his tape does not always inspire. Copeland is missing the instincts and route acumen to set up his breaks and elude coverage. The physical profile gives him a shot, but he will need to impress in camp to garner a roster opportunity.
Copeland could get drafted in the later rounds after a strong combine, but chances are he’ll be available as an undrafted free agent.
