What will the draft look like for the Tennessee Titans on day 2?
With the second and third round of the 2019 NFL Draft nearly an hour away, what will the Tennessee Titans do with their selections.
To figure this out, I went to Fanspeak to use their updated mock draft machine. I had a plan going into this and it worked out a lot better than I expected. Here is what I came up with for the Tennessee Titans over the next two rounds.
Round 2, pick 51: Kelvin Harmon WR, North Carolina State
The Tennessee Titans need another receiver in this offense and Harmon is a solid fit and value in the second round. While I don’t think that he has WR1 upside, I think if you understand that going in you will have a great secondary piece.
On the outside, he gives you physicality and solid hands while also giving you the experience and production to help you make an easy evaluation. There is little guesswork in what Harmon will be at the next level and unless someone great falls, this pick makes sense.

Round 3, pick 82: Jachai Polite EDGE, Florida
The Tennessee Titans took a pick to help them in 2020 at 19. In the second round, they took a safe WR who should give them another option in this offense and make them more difficult to predict and neutralize. So what to do in the third round?
Why not take a swing for the fences with Polite? On film, he is a talented EDGE who had an outstanding year last year. You have an average athlete with great tape, but some attitude questions. So what do you do? You bring him into the facilities and see what exactly makes him tick.
Luckily, that is exactly what the Tennessee Titans did and if they felt comfortable with him leaving that meeting then they could even make a move up to get him from this spot.
The question all comes down to the interview process. Does he act like a guy you believe can motivate himself and outperform his athleticism at the NFL level? If so then take him. If not, then pass and move on to the next prospect.
In this scenario, I am going to give the go ahead and take a chance on him here.
With this draft, in two years the Titans could have one of the best defensive lines in football or they could need to address DT and EDGE all over again.
