Seastrunk is not as fundamentally sound as the four runners mentioned above, nor is he the biggest or strongest back in this year’s crop. However, he’s probably the most explosive of them, all, as he can take any run the distance at any time. Blessed with excellent cutting ability and long speed, Seastrunk is a sneaky candidate to rise up draft boards. Unfortunately, he does have question marks when it comes to his ability as a receiver, as well as his consistency as a blocker at the next level. These concerns could have him sliding lower than round three. If that happens, Tennessee could be looking at serious value and potential if they find themselves lucky enough to snatch him up.
As stated before, the Titans are bringing in a veteran coaching staff that is going to work with what they have to try to turn things around and win now. That could mean Tennessee will play it safe and grab a quality free agent option at running back. However, one way or another they should look to add fresh blood in the draft. That could mean one of the last three backs mentioned in this list have better odds of playing in Tennessee in 2014. However, if the Titans see running back as a big need, they could take a long look at any of these five guys in the second round of the draft.
