Slight need

Running back

The Titans have both the starter and the backup running back spot taken care of, both of which offer different things.

Derrick Henry is a back who builds up speed and once he gets 10 yards past the LOS you are going to have a tough time slowing him down, much less making a tackle. He doesn’t have elite foot speed or acceleration though which limits his potential.

More from Titan Sized

Dion Lewis is shifty and can make the first guy miss by forcing them into bad angles. He is also the more natural of the two when the ball is in the air.

What they don’t have is someone to do the dirty work on special teams or two be a short range punisher. That is where someone like John Kelly from Tennessee would make a lot of sense.

The Titans don’t need just anyone to fill the spot, but if a perfect fit falls down the board, he makes a lot of sense.


Jim Wyatt has said a thousand times since Blaine Gabbert was signed that he doesn’t expect the Titans to spend a pick on a QB because he doesn’t expect them to keep 3 QBs on the roster this season.

However, I think Robinson would pounce on someone like Luke Falk on Day 3. He has experience in a wide open offense and has called plays at the LOS before. He isn’t going to be a starter in the NFL, but he can be a great backup in the right system.
