The 2020 Senior Bowl will take place on Saturday and there are some players who could be of interest to the Tennessee Titans.
With the Senior Bowl taking place at 1:30 p.m. CST on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans will get a look at some of the best players the Senior class has the offer.
The Titans will be in the market to address plenty of needs this offseason, and some of the Seniors we’re going to talk about could be potential solutions.
Here’s some of the players the Titans and their fans should be watching that the team has a realistic chance of drafting in 2020.
Terrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama
One of the biggest issues for the Titans’ defense in 2019 was getting pressure from the EDGE opposite Harold Landry.
Terrell Lewis, a 6-foot-5, 252-pound EDGE, finished with 31 tackles (11.5 for loss) and six sacks for Alabama in 2019, and he continues to see his stock rise as the 2020 NFL Draft approaches. Lewis is someone the Titans could target at the end of the first round.
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
With the Titans needing a burner in their receiving corps. to complement what they already have, Baylor wideout Denzel Mims could be someone they target.
At 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds, Mims offers the kind of size that will make him a solid receiver on the outside, but he also has the speed to be the burner Tennessee is looking for, as Mims was a former track and field star. He could be had in the third or fourth round.
Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame
Tennessee will have a lot of decisions to make both this year and in the coming years with their secondary with Adoree’ Jackson‘s rookie contract nearing its end, Malcolm Butler looking like a potential candidate to be cut either this year or next, and Logan Ryan being a free agent.
With all that said, looking to add a player at cornerback is something that should be a consideration.
While he doesn’t possess great size (5-foot-11, 194 pounds), Troy Pride Jr.‘s speed is what really makes him an interesting prospect. As the AFC title game against the Chiefs showed, having speed in the secondary is incredibly important in this day and age in the NFL.
Antonio Gibson, WR/RB, Memphis
With Dion Lewis likely on his way out of Nashville, Tennessee is going to have to find a solution to fill-in behind Derrick Henry if he is brought back in 2020. Lewis failed to offer that in 2019, as his performance both on the ground and through the air left a lot to be desired.
One of the best dual-threat backs in this year’s Senior Bowl could be Antonio Gibson out of Memphis. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound prospect played wide receiver with the Tigers, but figures to translate more into a running back in the NFL.
Gibson caught 38 balls for 735 yards (19.3 yards per catch) and ran the ball 33 times for 369 yards (11.2 yards per carry) in 2019. As a runner, Gibson has the size to break tackles and the agility to make people miss, and draws a comparison to Ty Montgomery for his versatility.
That versatility could also allow Arthur Smith to use him in more ways than just out of the backfield.
