Tennessee Titans 2018 NFL Draft needs ranked
By Will Lomas
There is no need to draft a CB…like at any point in this draft. Unless it is someone specifically for special teams, it just doesn’t make any sense.
Think about this, if there is a CB other than Malcolm Butler, Adoree Jackson or Logan Ryan on the field you are either benching a 1st round pick or someone making $10 million+ per year. Oh yea, and all of those guys are actually good at football too.
If you haven’t watched or haven’t kept up with the Titans I get that this may come as a shock to you, but the defensive backs in Tennessee are not only good, but they may be the best top-5 in the NFL with an All-Pro safety, two Super Bowl winning CBs and an Olympic caliber athlete who led the team in pass breakups last year.
Bennie Logan gave the Titans a true nose tackle and now they are 6 deep on the DL. I don’t know how much more I need to go into defensive line talk, but they are very deep and have good talent at the top led by Jurrell Casey.
The Titans are going to a more modern NFL offense which means that if the team carries a 4th TE, they need to invest very little in him. Right now they have everything they need at the position:
Delanie Walker=Pro Bowler who can do a little bit of everything and is a very good receiver
Jonnu Smith=Heir apparent as the receiving threat
Luke Stocker=Moving piece that is a very good blocker and could double as a fullback.
There is no reason to go back to this well.
The Tennessee Titans are returning all five starters from an offensive line that has been among the best since they became a unit. The Titans aren’t sitting on their hands though, they have added healthy competition inside.
Not only that, but guys like Kevin Pamphile and Dennis Kelly can play offensive tackle if they ever have to sub in for someone like Jack Conklin who could miss some time early in the season.
Simply put, they are two-deep at every position and their top line is excellent. OL is important and plenty of teams need to invest in it, but not this line.
