The Titans draft more offense than defense players
The Titans offense last season was one of the best in the league. After a slow start under Marcus Mariota, the offense rolled on all cylinders under Ryan Tannehill. With Tannehill under center, the Titans put up some historic numbers as they rode to the AFC Championship game.
With all that said and done, the Titans still need firepower on offense. Their run-heavy game was predicated on bruising running back Derrick Henry taking the majority of the offensive workload. While Henry is a one-of-a-kind back, the Titans will inevitably look to move the offense more on the shoulders of Tannehill.
To do that, Tennessee will have to make sure that they feel very confident about their offensive line. The hole left by Conklin is huge and the Titans will hopefully patch that up shortly, though they did re-sign Dennis Kelly with the intent to start him.
As I said earlier, the Titans need more playmakers at wide receiver who can add speed to the offense and at running back who can play third downs and catch the ball.
When it is all said and done, considering the class it isn’t out of the question that Jon Robinson walks out of this draft taking a tackle, running back, wide receiver, and an additional depth player at quarterback or guard.
The Titans need help on defense, especially at the pass rusher and cornerback positions. But historically, those are two positions that struggle to find rookie talents to fill at a high level. The Titans might just be better suited to make their high-octane offense unstoppable and rely on free agents to plug into the defense.
Regardless, it will be an exciting draft for Titans fans so let’s get this show started.
