Source: Gilyard to meet with Titans on Wednesday
Cincinnati wide receiver Mardy Gilyard will be in Tennessee on Wednesday to meet with the Titans, according to a league source.
The All-American wideout caught 87 passes for 1,191 yards and 11 touchdowns for the 12-1 Bearcats in 2009. Gilyard caught 25 touchdowns in three years at Cincinnati while hauling in 168 passes over the past two seasons.
The 6’0”, 187-pounder is currently the NFP’s tenth-ranked wide receiver prospect in this year’s draft class. Gilyard turned some head’s at January’s Senior Bowl when he caught five passes for a game-high 103 yards and one touchdown.
The Titans could be a good fit for Gilyard as the team ranked 23rd in passing last season (189.4 yds/gm) and didn’t have a single receiver catch more than 50 passes on the year.
