For the last few months, football fans across the world have been debating the needs of their favorite teams, as well as the merits of incoming rookies that might best serve to fill them. Titans fans have been no different. Many teams throughout the NFL have very specific strengths and weaknesses, with an abundance of talent at one position at the expense of another. Thankfully, the Titans are not among those teams.
Teams that have very specific needs often find themselves handcuffed to a specific player or set of players at a given position in the first round. This, in turn, causes teams to have to reach for players at said position, rather than taking a higher caliber player at another position. As our roster currently stands heading into the draft, the Titans have a wealth of solid talent, however, it is very evenly distributed amongst all positions. To that respect, it could be argued that The Titans have one of the most balanced rosters in the league. The downside to this, of course, is that it can’t be said that we excel at any one thing at this point.
As a result of our spread talent, there are any number of positions that could stand to be upgraded. From the offensive line to the secondary, any first round pick would be deemed both beneficial and necessary. The other advantage to this is that should a person of significant talent drop unexpectedly in the draft, the Titans will be in a position to swoop him up and find a place for him in the rotation or starting lineup. The fact that we are in a position to do this throughout the entirety of the draft should result in another successful run for Webster and Munchak.
What do you think? Will the Titans take advantage of the BPA approach to the draft? Let us know what you think!
