Round One, Pick 29: Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
One of the best players in the draft, as well as a player who would come in and serve as an immediate starter at a position of need, assuming Logan Ryan is moving on from Tennessee. Fulton was one of the hardest cornerbacks to grab a catch on (allowing just a 40% completion percentage when targeted since 2018 and 14 pass breakups in 2019) and seems to always stay with his receiver in coverage. Fulton has the build and athleticism to replicate his college success against NFL receivers and could be a franchise player at cornerback alongside Adoree Jackson for the next decade.
Round Two, Pick 61: Zack Baun, EDGE, Wisconsin
Baun was one of the best and most effective pass-rushers in college football last season, yet is projected to fall into the second round where the Titans will have a shot at taking him. His 19.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks earned him the honor of Second-Team All-American, but Baun’s brilliance extends beyond the box score. His athleticism, power, and speed made him one of the most disruptive players in the sport and give him the chance to continue his dominance in the NFL. He and Harold Landry together could make one of the best pass-rushing duos in professional football.
Round Three, Pick 93: Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas
One of the most productive receivers in college football last season, Duvernay has the raw talent needed to fit right in with the Titans offense, despite not being the most technically sound player. Duvernay isn’t the best route runner, he’s not the best at contested catches, but he does have blazing speed needed to simply blow past coverage. He would give the Titans a consistent downfield threat as the third or fourth receiver.
Round Five, Pick 174: Khalil Davis, DT, Nebraska
A productive player in his final year at Nebraska, Davis doesn’t project to be a top-end starter in the NFL, but he could come into Tennessee and compete for a starting job on a weaker defensive line. Davis doesn’t have the size and hasn’t shown the strength needed at the NFL level, but his athletic ability makes him a solid fifth-round pick with the potential to play.
Round Seven, Pick 224: Steven Montez, QB, Colorado
Athletic quarterback out of Colorado who saw his numbers take a bit of a dip after two solid sophomore and junior seasons. Montez was a frequent runner, albeit not the most effective one. Even still, with his raw skill Montez could compete for the QB2 spot on the Titans roster.
Round Seven, Pick 237: Darius Anderson, RB, TCU
Anderson isn’t the most high-profile running back in this draft class, but with Derrick Henry, the Titans don’t need to be spending high draft capital on a backup, situational running back. Anderson doesn’t have the potential of a Dobbins or Edwards-Helaire type, but he’s a fast back with good pass-catching ability, making him exactly what the Titans need.
Round Seven, Pick 243: Rodrigo Blankenship, K, Georgia
The Titans need a kicker after releasing Ryan Succop and not getting much of a sample size from Greg Joseph, and shouldn’t have any qualms with using a draft pick for one of the best rookie kickers after addressing most of their other needs earlier. Blankenship has a strong leg and great accuracy and could be a solid kicker on a team where solid kicking was in high demand.
