Tennessee Titans selections in some big 2020 NFL Mock Draft

Absolutely go check out the full mock draft now, it is really well done but just focusing on the Titans picks I have some comments. Let’s jump right into the selection:
Jordan Love QB, Utah State
"Marcus Mariota was supposed to be the guy who turned the Tennessee Titans around. Unfortunately, he has been average at best throughout his career and is honestly holding the Titans back from being serious competitors. If Tennessee can find a playmaker at the quarterback position, they could quickly become legitimate contenders in the AFC. In this mock draft, they move on from Mariota and replace him with Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. Love is a raw quarterback prospect who has to improve his decision-making if he is ever going to become a true franchise-changing quarterback. That being said, this guy has all of the tools in place to be a superstar at the position. He has the arm talent, he has the mobility and playmaking ability and he has the natural accuracy. If Love can improve his decision-making at the next level, he could easily be the guy to take the Titans to the next level."
I said before that if the Tennessee Titans pick low enough, the only explanation has to be that he couldn’t elevate the current roster which is very talented.
So, I am not down on this pick because of the position taken. However, I think if there is any chance of the Titans drafting a QB it is going to have to be one of the two big names.
Love has talent, but he is very raw. I think the Titans have the support around the QB position to help develop someone into being “the guy” but I think if you want to take advantage of what you have now it has to be a guy that can come in and win immediately.
Those guys are rare and I just think that if Love is the top QB left on the board the Titans would rather roll the dice and either keep one of their current QBs, trade for someone else or draft someone in the 2nd knowing that they aren’t committed to him long term.
