The Tennessee Titans are reportedly likely to trade 2020 first round pick Isaiah Wilson after a rocky first season.
Wilson, 22, was the No. 29 overall pick, out of Georgia. But the offensive tackle played just four snaps as a rookie, and the Titans’ and Wilson’s relationship has worsened in the offseason.
The #Titans have shopped first-round tackle Isaiah Wilson, sources say, open to dealing the former Georgia standout. After a rough rookie season that included a suspension and stint on the non-football injury list, a fresh start may benefit all parties.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 25, 2021
This is a unique opportunity to get a young talent, although one who has struggled to get on the right professional track. Let’s look if he’d be a worth the Las Vegas Raiders’ time to trade for.
He’d be cheap: If the Titans will taken a low-round pick, why not? He was the No. 29 overall pick. It’s worth the gamble.
Titans do not necessarily expect a lot in return for first-round offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson in any potential trade, according to league sources. Most anticipated late-round draft pick, if anything develops— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) February 25, 2021
He was a first-round pick for a reason. The Raiders are well coached on the offensive line by Tom Cable. He could be a steal.
Possible Trent Brown replacement:
Wilson weighs 350 pounds. He could be a great right tackle. If the Raiders cut Trent Brown in a salary cap move, Wilson could compete with Brandon Parker for the starting spot.
It’s alarming he is available:
Teams just don’t give up on first round picks at pennies on the dollar for nothing. Wilson has earned his way out of Nashville in less than a year. That’s a problem.
It may be a waste of effort:
Wilson may be out of the NFL soon. Giving him another chance would be a waste of time.
Las Vegas isn’t for everyone:
Clearly, Wilson has had trouble adjusting to being a professional. Getting on the straight and narrow in Las Vegas may be a challenge as there are a lot of distractions for any player.
I’m usually not one for picking up other people’s problems as they usually remain a problem. But if Raiders’ GM Mike Mayock had Wilson rated as a fit, it might be a worthwhile endeavor at a low-risk price.
