The Tennessee Titans were not awarded any compensatory picks for the 2018 NFL Draft, so they will go into it with six selections.
The NFL announced the compensatory draft choices for the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft. A total of 32 compensatory picks are awarded to teams based on what type of and how many players they lost by way of free agency the previous offseason. Some teams offset those losses by signing better or more players.
Seven teams were handed multiple compensatory picks, with four teams getting four picks. The Houston Texans were awarded three after being tight on cap space last offseason and losing some pieces.
The Tennessee Titans were not awarded any compensatory selections for this upcoming draft, which makes sense. The Titans biggest free agent losses last offseason were Anthony Fasano, Kendall Wright and Chance Warmack. In turn, they added Logan Ryan, Johnathan Cyprien, Sylvester Williams, Eric Decker and more. It never was even a consideration that the Titans would get a compensatory pick in 2018.
That leaves the Titans with six selections in the 2018 draft. The Titans are missing their seventh round pick due to the David King trade from right before the season. Here are the Titans’ selections.
Round 1, Pick 25
Round 2, Pick 57
Round 3, Pick 89
Round 4, Pick 125
Round 5, Pick 162
Round 6, Pick 199
The total of six draft choices is the lowest since the 2014 draft, a class which brought in three important contributors over the years for the Titans: LT Taylor Lewan, DT DaQuan Jones and LB Avery Williamson.
Odds are the Titans won’t be locked into or married to any of those 2018 picks. GM Jon Robinson has been prone to draft day trades through his first two seasons as the leader of the two-tone blue. We’ll see if he has the itch to move up and down the draft board in late April.
