Tennessee Titans 2020 NFL Draft: 7-round, post Super Bowl
By Will Lomas
Round 2, pick 61: Bradlee Anae EDGE, Utah
I hesitated to buy into Bradlee Anae at first because pass rushers in the PAC 12 seemingly face more pass attempts than any other conference in the country. However, the more you watch on Anae the more you have to like him.
I initially had a low second, high third round grade on him until the Senior Bowl forced me to go back and really pay close attention to him.
While I think he will still struggle vs the run compared to someone like Epenesa or YGM, I think his pros far outweigh his cons.
His specialty is the pass rush where he seems almost unnaturally refined. Like Joey Bosa, he just seems untouchable at times because of his ability to keep blockers off of him as the turns the corner.
In his career as a starter, the only Power 5 player with more TFLs and sacks than Anae is Chase Young and unlike some prospects, his film matches up with the production.
For the Titans, this would mean that we will probably see more of the 3-4 look on defense with Jeffery Simmons or Jurrell Casey playing on the ends with Harold Landry and Anae playing on the EDGEs.
