Step 3. Draft Joey Bosa in round one
The best thing to come out of the past two weekends is the fact that when Derrick Morgan is injured this team is clearly a different animal. Over that time the Titans are averaging over 25 points per game, which is much more than the Titans have been allowing the rest of the year.
Dick Lebeau’s defense is predicated on pressure from odd angles and at times, from every angles. However, for the majority of the game, to win the pressure game you need your edge rushers to win their matchups.
Now, is Bosa a 3-4 edge player? No. However, more often than not the Titans have four players or more with their hands in the dirt and Bosa is a lot better than Karl Klug or Ropati Pitoitua.
When you are a new head coach (and maybe a new GM) you have to hit on this pick, it defines your entire career at that team. You have to take the best player, especially if you have a franchise QB.
Bosa is a great player and he is clearly the player who makes the most impact on a game for my money. He can play anywhere on the line and if the Titans want to rest Orakpo or Morgan and put him on the edge, they can. Likewise, he can sub in for Jurrell Casey or even line up next two him and the Titans can run double 3-techs to get a great rush.
