Tennessee Titans offensive 2019 NFL Mock Draft
By Will Lomas
The Tennessee Titans may choose to just focus on offense in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The 2019 NFL Draft is 31 days away and honestly, I haven’t been more confused on what the Tennessee Titans will do in a while.
This offseason, Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson has been so effective at filling positions of need with high caliber talent that there are no major needs left to address.
Heading into the offseason their biggest need was on the offensive line where they had allowed QB Marcus Mariota to get beaten up weekly. The Titans quickly cut Josh Kline and allowed Quinton Spain to walk, while also bringing in Rodger Saffold.
The former L.A. Rams guard was 2nd team All-Pro in 2017 and he is a perfect scheme fit for what Arthur Smith is going to do. He comes in with the potential to be the best interior offensive lineman in Tennessee since Hall of Famer Kevin Mawae.
When they needed a dependable receiver, they went out and got one of the most dependable slot receivers in the game. Adam Humphries should bring technical precision to a position group that was really built around one man: Corey Davis.
Finally, the Titans have a lot of young, cheap talent at EDGE. Harold Landry is firmly entrenched as a starter on one side while some combination of Sharif Finch and Kamalei Correa looked ready to rotate opposite him.
However, Robinson knew that the Titans needed a veteran presence and someone who could be a real threat as a pass rusher. He got both in five-time Pro Bowler and former Miami Dolphins star Cameron Wake.
While all of that is great, what if they aren’t done? Jim Wyatt (who obviously works for the Tennessee Titans) has said several times that the Titans may actually try to add a starter in free agency. Even as recently as this weekend he said this in his mailbag:
"“Well, the first phase of free agency is over. But that doesn’t mean the team is finished. I still suspect the team will make an addition or so, but I can’t make any promises on which players might be of interest. I’m thinking some one-year deals are still out there. Here’s what GM Jon Robinson said when asked about the potential of more moves: “I haven’t gotten the update from Vin yet,” said Robinson, referring to Titans VP of Football Administration Vin Marino, who handles the contracts. “But he hasn’t told me to put the phone down or to stop fielding calls yet. Until he says stop, I’m going to keep going.”"
That really sounds like someone who has heard that the Titans will make another move. At the very least, it is speculation from someone very well connected that they are interested in making a move if the money is right.
Alright, so let’s speculate what they would do. With the signings the Tennessee Titans have made so far, the only position group with plenty of starting caliber players left is defensive tackle.
Now, I don’t know whether the person that Jon Robinson would look at is Timmy Jernigan, Ndamukong Suh, Corey Liuget, Mo Wilkerson, or someone else. All I can say is that if the Titans do look to patch up another position in free agency, there are plenty of names left on the market here.
Let’s take that line of thought one round further. If the Titans do fill that need, then what is left for the draft?
Well, if you think the Titans are in win now mode (while also trying to set themselves up for success down the road) then all of the “needs” are on the offensive side of the ball.
Right now, the Titans need to fill at least one starting spot on the interior offensive line and they need a boundary WR. On top of that, you could make sense that the team just needs something else offensively just another weapon in general.
So, with offense on the mind what does an all offensive 2019 NFL Mock Draft look like. Let’s check out what the first three rounds could look like.
