In the 2020 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans select…everything but a quarterback?
The 2020 NFL Draft is supposed to be very deep at wide receiver, offensive tackle, defensive line, cornerback, and even EDGE.
So with that sort of depth you could see why a team would pass on a QB if they didn’t need one in favor of a different position. For the Titans, it seems like Logan Woodside is going to be enough of a deterrent to prevent them from looking at a QB in the top-100.
Well, Woodside and the massive contract the Titans gave Ryan Tannehill after an amazing 2019 season.
Jim Wyatt actually addressed this twice in his mailbag today:
"As for Jalen Hurts, he’s a favorite of mine. Just a really good young man, and a solid player. His stock sure seems to be going up right before the draft. With the contract the Titans gave Ryan Tannehill, though, I can’t see them going QB that early……Robinson and Vrabel have both raved about Logan Woodside all offseason, but I can’t see the team turning the No.2 job over to him without competition, considering Woodside hasn’t played in a regular season game. I suspect the Titans will bring in a veteran, but this obviously hinges on what happens in the draft. Robinson said as much last week during his appearance with season ticket members on the OTP. If a QB is there on Day 3 the team likes then I could see the team pulling the trigger, but without an offseason program, which could end up being the case, it’s going to be tougher to count on a rookie QB, even as a back-up."
This makes perfect sense. The first response to a question dealing with Jalen Hurts as a potential option for the Titans is the most interesting.

Hurts is unique because he seems like a player you could use in a Taysom Hill/rookie Lamar Jackson role. The Titans have already shown how much they like using unique personnel and formations to throw teams off balance, so why not address backup QB with a player who could actually see snaps in specific situations?
But taking all of that information and summing it up into a concise thought, it seems like the Titans want a backup who is “proven” at the NFL level and if they can’t find someone that fits that then they will take one who is “proven” at the AAF level.
Is that good enough? I’m not sure, but that all depends on the options available in free agency and the options available outside of the top-100 picks.
Either way, I think we can feel comfortable leaving QB off of our shorter mock drafts for the next day or two unless we get any new info.
