Let’s get judgemental on some 2020 NFL Mock Drafts and see who really seems to know what the Tennessee Titans need.
Good NFL GMs know what they are looking for in prospects when they scout a player for their team. Tennessee Titans GM has been in Nashville long enough that some clear patterns are emerging in his drafts that show you what he is looking for at most positions.
But, every year we do have to remember that even the most methodical GMs throw in a wild card every know and then for better or worse. So, it isn’t crazy to think that this is going to be the year that Team X goes against what they have done in the past.
Unfortunately, unless you clearly state that you know that this is a GM going against type and doing something he normally doesn’t, it just comes off as wrong or illogical.
As frustrating as that is for fans, that is only half of the issue when you talk about the Tennessee Titans.
Sure, the Green Bay Packers may end up getting a linebacker mocked to them that doesn’t hit specific measurables that the front office demands. I can understand why this would irritate the 1% of Packers fans that really dive deep into the draft process.
On the other hand, for years these same people would completely ignore team needs and throw in a tight end or a cornerback to the Titans just to justify the first round grade they had on them.
So, knowing that the bulk of the 2010s was filled with analysts pretending they knew anything about the Titans, let’s see if an AFC Championship Game appearance brought the team more attention nationally.
I’ll start with the worst first.
