What Larrell Murchison offers the Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans are in a dead period of the NFL offseason, so now is a perfect time to look back on some moves that didn’t get the proper attention at the time.
Coming off of free agency and the NFL draft, the team is eyeing the potential restart of offseason training camps in mid-July. While the COVID-19 pandemic is putting the league at pause, the team is moving forward with the season preparations.
One crucial activity that happens during this period is the initial engagements with drafted rookies.
The Titans filled a few big holes on the roster with their draft picks this year. After the Titans answered questions on the offensive line, cornerback, and running back in the first three rounds, the Titans added depth to the defensive line rotation in the fifth round by taking DT Larrell Murchison from NC State with the #174th pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Titans defensive front saw massive changes, including shipping off long-time starter Jurrell Casey, cutting Cameron Wake, and signing Vic Beasley. Despite the shakeup, the Titans ended up thin behind DaQuan Jones and Jeffery Simmons, leading to the Murchison pick.
Murchison is an intriguing prospect with huge potential, especially for the Tennessee Titans. Looking back at Day 3 picks during the Jon Robinson era it is easy to find hits where everyone else is taking shots in the dark.
Will Murchison join the likes of Kevin Byard, Jayon Brown, Amani Hooker, and David Long? Let’s take a look.
