We’ve reached pick No. 11. This selection belongs to the Tennessee Titans
A 7-9 team who was probably a starting quarterback injury away from capturing the AFC’s second wild-card berth. So why does it seem like the Tennessee Titans have needs at nearly every position? They’re not major needs—more like backup plans in case some of their younger players don’t pan out.
One could argue almost anything here. A new franchise quarterback, a No. 2 wide receiver, another pass-catching threat for double tight-end sets, an offensive tackle to groom behind Michael Roos, tall defensive lineman, pass-rush specialist, inside linebacker or cornerback. That doesn’t include running back, whom many project as the target with pick No. 42.
It’s time to examine who the Titans will select at No. 11.
