The Tennessee Titans have spent their offseason trying to keep their 2019 stars on the team, as they’ve re-signed QB Ryan Tannehill and franchise tagged RB Derrick Henry. They also added OLB Vic Beasley and DL Jurrell Casey.
Their biggest lost could be a costly one, as right tackle Jack Conklin moved in in free agency to the Browns. Marcus Mariota also moved on, but after being beat out by Tannehill, that move was inevitable.
2020 Draft Picks
Round 1, pick 29: Isaiah Wilson, OL, Georgia
Round 2, pick 29 (No. 61): Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
Round 3, pick 29 (No. 93): Darrynton Evans, RB, Appalachian State
Round 5, pick 14 (No. 174): Larrell Murchison, DT, NC State
Round 7, pick 10 (No. 224): Chris Claybrooks, CB, Memphis
Round 7, pick 29 (No. 243): Chris Jackson, S, Marshall
The Titans were already weak in pass protection, giving up the worst adjusted sack rate in 2019. Now, with Conklin moving on, they are even weaker. Offensive line is a must addition in the draft.
The Titans lost RB Dion Lewis in free agency and could go to the draft for their backup, but there are also a few useful options still in free agency.
The Titans were an okay defense in 2019, but if you want to get past the Chiefs in the AFC, your defense will need to be special. The Titans could use more help getting to the quarterback. Vic Beasley will need to return to form if he’s going to be worth the contract they gave him and trading away Jurrell Casey weakened the pass rush.
Cornerback Logan Ryan is a free agent and if they lose him, they will need to find some help in the secondary.
Dream first pick
Grabbing an offensive tackle toward the end of the first round and into the second round will be tough this year, but the Titans very much need to find someone to help a weak unit. ESPN’s Mel Kiper has offensive tackle Ezra Cleveland going to the Titans after a strong combine. Of course, grabbing Josh Jones out of Houston is the dream pick, but he’s become the dream pick for many teams in the Titans spot and he’ll likely end up going earlier than many mock drafts have him going.
