The Tennessee Titans waited until the second round to draft a quarterback in 2023, and Will Levis didn’t necessarily look like the answer. This class is loaded with wide receivers and is top-heavy with offensive tackles, two positions that Tennessee definitely needs. As we head into Week 17, the Titans are projected to be on the clock with the seventh overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft.
Titans draft order: 7th pick
1.01 — Chicago Bears (via Carolina Panthers)
1.02 — Arizona Cardinals
1.03 — Washington Commanders
1.04 — New England Patriots
1.05 — New York Giants
1.06 — Los Angeles Chargers
1.07 — Tennessee Titans
1.08 — Chicago Bears
1.09 — New York Jets
1.10 — Atlanta Falcons
The Titans will likely see some movement ahead of them, but there isn’t a reason to partake. They could trade up to take a quarterback, but the draft capital they would need to give up isn’t going to be worth it. Tennessee will be able to stay put and address one of their biggest draft needs no matter who the six players are drafted ahead of them.
Titans mock draft: Potential first-round pick
1.07 — Malik Nabers, WR, LSU
If Tennessee stays at seven, they can expect that quarterbacks Drake Maye and Caleb Williams, wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr, and offensive tackles Olu Fashanu and Joe Alt are expected to be off the board. Tight end Brock Bowers is an option, but he is consistently being mocked to the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 6. This would leave Nabers and OT JC Latham on the board, and either would make sense for the Titans.
Nabers would bring an instant boost to the team’s receiving corps. Treylon Burks has struggled with injuries, and DeAndre Hopkins will turn 32 next season. Nabers played in 37 games for the Tigers and totaled 2,980 yards with 21 touchdowns. While the focal point is on Harrison Jr., Nabers has shown he deserves to be selected in the top 10.
