Re-Drafting the Last 10 Tennessee Titans First Rounds
Let’s see how the Tennessee Titans should have (or should not have) done things differently in the first round over the last 10 years.
Over the last 10 years, the Tennessee Titans have had three different general managers and three different head coaches. While consistency would be lovely, managerial turnover is inevitable in the NFL. The Titans finally seem to have been blessed with a GM who should be here for a decade. There are still questions surrounding the current head coach, but he has earned a lot of trust after a great 2016 season. One of the reasons for so much change in the front office and the head coach position has been some poor drafts that turned the roster into a below-average collective.
Let’s go back through the last 10 first round draft picks and see if things should’ve been done differently. For these re-drafts, I chose to only pick players who would’ve still been on the board when the Titans picked. Players taken before the Titans pick (like Cam Newton in 2011), weren’t available. I also took into account the Titans’ roster at the time and what they needed. Remember, though, folks: hindsight is 20/20.
