Pre-combine look at 6 QBs Titans should target on each day of NFL Draft
By Ryan Sikes
Ok, a lot to unpack here.
The Titans can sign Ryan Tannehill to a long-term deal and a quarterback could be ignored altogether in this year’s draft. However, should they franchise tag him, I would be inclined to believe that they will be drafting a quarterback at some point.
Jacob Eason would likely be the best quarterback for the Titans going forward, without having to trade up and sacrifice future draft picks for Justin Herbert. Eason is likely to go on Day Two of the draft and in the second round.
I am not sold on Jake Fromm being an NFL-caliber quarterback, and all the quarterbacks projected to go on Day Three are hit-or-miss. Yes, I am aware Tom Brady exists, but the likelihood of that happening every year is slim.
Other quarterbacks not mentioned here, but ones that should be considered include Steven Montez (Colorado), Khalil Tate (Arizona), and James Morgan (Florida International). I don’t believe that Jalen Hurts‘ skill set will translate to the NFL, but the draft is a crapshoot anyway.
We’ll see what happens and who the Titans start showing interest in leading up to the draft, but it’s food for thought as we enter the early stages of the offseason.
