Looking ahead to the NFL Draft, here are three players the Titans should consider moving up in the draft to add to the roster.
After hovering near the top of the draft for the better half of the decade, the Titans are drafting with the other Super Bowl contenders at the bottom of the draft.
After their best finish since the 2002 season, the Titans will select 29th overall. Thanks to a trade during the season and the departure of Jurrell Casey, Tennessee now holds seven picks in the 2020 NFL draft, three of which are in the seventh round.
The Titans have a few gaps on the roster and their run through free agency thus far has not filled many of them. Most importantly, the Titans need to resolve the holes at right tackle, EDGE rusher, and cornerback while depth is needed at running back and defensive tackle.
The Titans have shown good scouting and drafting skills since General Manager Jon Robinson has taken over. After a string of horrible drafts under Mike Reinfeldt and Ruston Webster, Robinson has hit on many players and trades in his three drafts.
In his first move, Robinson traded the top overall pick for a boatload of picks from the Los Angeles Rams that the Titans translated to several key players. While trading down from #1 may be his first big move, he has since shown that he won’t hesitate to trade up either.
With the Titans sitting currently 29th in the first round, the team might need to get aggressive to grab a top-talent in this draft. The Titans don’t need to mortgage the future by putting all their eggs in one basket, but if they have the chance at a semi-reasonable deal they could pull the trigger on one of the elite talents in the draft like these three targets.
