The Tennessee Titans picked 34th overall in 2013 (2nd pick in the 2nd round).
Original pick – Justin Hunter WR Tennessee
After changing the Titans first round pick to DeAndre Hopkins, I’m not sure that I even need to justify not taking Justin Hunter. Of course, Hunter caught the game-winning touchdown vs the San Diego Chargers, which was an amazing play. But besides that there isn’t much on Justin Hunter’s resume that makes me want to stick with him for the 34th overall pick.
Who they should have picked – Le’Veon Bell RB Michigan State
If you’ve never thought about the possibility of the Tennessee Titans having both DeAndre Hopkins and Le’Veon Bell on rookie contracts, well, you have now. This combo would have made the signing of Ryan Fitzpatrick seem genius, and he may have even finished his career as a Titan after reaping the benefits of these two offensive weapons.
At the time of the 2013 NFL Draft, Chris Johnson wasn’t quite living up to his contract any more and his time in Tennessee was coming to an end. Drafting Bell would have made the transition very smooth and even genius. Rather than the suffering years of Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews.
Just in rounds one and two alone, the Titans would have improved the team drastically with the addition of one of the best WRs and RBs of the decade.
