The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with strong safety George Wilson the other day. They’re also expected to spend a chunk of money on an offensive lineman when free agency opens up. Bills OG Andy Levitre seems to be the probable target. If they do sign Levitre, they’ll have addressed their two biggest holes. That could make the draft very interesting to watch.
The Titans will likely have four picks in the first four rounds of the draft in April. Those first three rounds are where you grab guys who are going to be playing that same year. You see what I’m getting at here?
BPA. The Titans seem to be set up perfectly to go BPA in those first three rounds with their four picks. The next biggest need on the Titans list will be adding a DE to the rotation with Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley where there is very little depth. Other than that, the Titans seem to be open to almost anything.
That’s something to be excited about.

The Titans have their linebackers, defensive tackles, quarterback, running back, and everything else with the signing of Levitre and Wilson. The Titans would be open to taking whatever player they fell in love with, whether it be a young SS or perhaps even another big WR, one who would step up into Britt’s place in 2014 after his contract expires, seems as it looks like, as of now, the Titans will not want to re-sign him.
Options abound for the Titans in the draft if they fix their O-line in free agency. Drafting BPA only makes sense. They want to make the playoffs and adding the best player available who is going to immediately produce for them only makes sense.
What do you think? Will the Titans be set up enough after free agency to draft by the BPA philosophy?
