What would the Tennessee Titans draft look like?
Everything worked out well for the Denver Broncos, but the point of this is to explain why the team that doesn’t have two 1st round picks can still have a good draft in this situation.
Luckily, I didn’t even have to trade up because a star fell to me in the second round. So, here is how the Tennessee Titans can make the most of this trade:
46. Jeff Gladney CB, TCU
-Incredibly productive cornerback that can play all over the field. If the Titans want to ease him in as the slot cornerback this year and expand his role next year, that would be a great plan. That at least gives you the option of keeping Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson next year if you want, but you aren’t locked into anything.
61. Michael Pittman WR, USC
-I think the two most underrated receivers in the top-100 of the draft are Michael Pittman and Justin Jefferson. Pittman was an outstanding special teams player, he had 2,000+ yards combined in the last two seasons, he is a true 6’4, the son of a coach, and his short-area quickness (10-yard split) was better than Jalen Regor and the same as Lavishka Shenault’s. The Titans get their second 2nd round steal at WR in as many years.
83. Matt Hennessy iOL, Temple
-If the Tennessee Titans want to think about the future of the center position, drafting Hennessey would be a great guy to take a look at. With great athleticism and a lot of experience, the Titans could get the draft’s second-best center and then decide if they want to let him compete for the right guard spot or just focus on providing outstanding backup in the middle of the OL.
93. Alex Highsmith EDGE, Charlotte
-Athletic, moldable prospect who has every chance of being a star if he can just live up to his potential and get some good coaching.
118. Anthony McFarland RB, Maryland
174. Saahdiq Charles OT, LSU
224. Cole McDonald QB, Hawaii
237. Rodrigo Blankenship K, Georgia.
243. Bryce Huff EDGE, Memphis
