What does the Tennessee Titans draft look like with more versatility.
Whether you have realized it or not, there is a theme going on with the Tennessee Titans this offseason.
The Tennessee Titans are trying to become better while also becoming more versatile. Look at the new players that they acquired:
S/LB Johnathan Cyprien
-While Cyp will play a more traditional strong safety role for the Tennessee Titans, but it isn’t a stretch to imagine him playing nickel linebacker on the strong side.
He could cover tight ends at the LOS and depending on whether they stay in to block or go out to pass, he can adjust how he plays.
S/ST Brynden Trawick
-While Trawick is known as a stud special teams player, he has actually seen some action as a safety in the NFL. He could have a minor role similar to Daimion Stafford last year.
CB/SCB Logan Ryan
-This may seem simple, but it is absolutely not. It is rare to find a cornerback who can hang with big wide receivers on the outside, then kick inside to the slot on the next play. Logan Ryan can do that for the Tennessee Titans.

ST/KR Eric Weems
-Weems is the rare kick returner that actually isn’t afraid to stick his nose in the fan and tackle on special teams. This saves the Tennessee Titans from finding that other guy to play on kickoff and punt coverage.
LB/ST Darren Bates
-Bates isn’t necessarily super versatile, but he will be on all phases of special teams and be a depth player at linebacker.
NT/5-tech Sylvester Williams
-While Williams may have the size to play nose tackle, he can very easily kick outside to abuse offensive tackles and guards with his quick step.
TE/FB/OG/OT Tim Lelito
-According to people in New Orleans, Lelito can play all over the offensive line and even at fullback. I wonder if between he and Dennis Kelly if they will ever have to carry more than 7 OL on game day.
So with that clear direction in mind, I wonder if that thought expands to the 2017 NFL Draft. What would a draft look like if the Tennessee Titans went purely for the most versatile players that made sense in each round?
