The Tennessee Titans, being handled by Arctic Bronco, select...
MARIO MANNINGHAM, WR - MICHIGAN
G.M. - Arctic Bronco -- Mario Manningham, 6'0" 185 lb. speedster from the University of Michigan will help the Titans as they build their team around their QB of the future, Vince Young. He is described by Pro Football Weekly as a sleek, gliding, quick-twitch athlete. Manningham is particularly suitable for VY as he was rated by the major draft publications as having excellent hands and the ability to reach out and pluck the ball out of the air due to his top notch body control. His route running is also rated as excellent, that is a major need for a young QB and should also help limit the interceptions. He definitely grades out as a potential #1 receiver.
There have been concerns about his mouth and the possible impact in the locker room, but VY definitely has the leadership to keep Manningham or any other receiver from becoming a distraction.
