The Tennessee Titans don’t need a rookie to step in and be a starting wide receiver in 2020, that is a fair statement. However, it is a little bit shortsighted to look at this roster and think that the receiver group couldn’t be updated long term.
It isn’t crazy to think that the Titans should try to add talent from an absurdly talented WR class at some point in the draft.
Findings in my own words: Luxury in the first with solid returns in the second.
If there is a perfect receiver that falls into your lap in the first round, it seems like the data suggests that you can reasonably shoot your shot and try to add the best player. However, Titans fans have seen first hand that waiting until the 2nd round can bring you some very good talent.
For the Titans, it looks like it would have to be a perfect situation based on the opportunity and the value of second round picks, but there is a scenario where they take one of these great receivers in the 1st.
