There are five cornerback prospects the Tennessee Titans should consider in rounds one and two of the 2020 NFL Draft.
It’s not impossible to find a mock draft that doesn’t involve the Tennessee Titans selecting a cornerback in the first round, though it has become more infrequent.
Most analysts agree that the Titans’ primary areas of concern include corner, edge-rusher, offensive tackle, wide receiver, and interior defensive line.
I’ve been of the camp that projects the Titans using one of their top two selections on a defensive lineman, and I’m not going to be convinced otherwise.
My reasoning? General Manager, Jon Robinson, has built this squad to “play ahead.”
For what feels like forever, the Titans have been playing catch-up. Before Robinson’s time, they lacked a foundation that enabled them a long-term vision. Now, they can afford luxury best player available picks with such a solid roster. See 2019’s, DL Jeffery Simmons.
With DE Daquan Jones in the final year of his contract and higher priorities for the 2021 offseason elsewhere, the Titans must grab a stud early if they plan to move on from Jones. Granted, this is conjecture, but if Jones has another season as he did in 2019, he will be looking to get paid.
If that wasn’t enough, I failed to mention RB Derrick Henry‘s possible extension.
Be that as it may, I am willing, however, to speculate on which direction the Titans might go if they select a cornerback with either of their first two picks. That’s what you wanted, right? Let’s explore the possibilities.
