5. Dylan Moses, LB
Dylan Moses is so interesting as a prospect. Coming into 2019 he was supposed to be the next great linebacker, but an injury before the season caused him to miss his third year in college football.
Despite people saying that he would be a 1st round pick even if he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft, Moses decided to come back to Alabama in 2020 and compete for another ring and finish his career off right.
However, you are now asking a player recovering from an ACL injury to come back and play his final season (assuming he is going to declare after 2020) with limited practice reps and a rehab schedule that has to be spotty considering the circumstances.
That doesn’t make sense to me, so if he declares he should get a lot of attention. The problem is, while I think the Titans don’t mind taking someone with an injury (obviously look at Jeffery Simmons) there isn’t a need big enough at linebacker to encourage the Titans to pay the price that it would take to get him.
The biggest thing that could change that is the salary cap situation in 2021. If Tennessee thinks that they aren’t going to have the money to pay Jayon Brown, then why not spend a pick on Moses and then get a 3rd or 4th round comp pick back for Brown?
But if they can lock down Brown and pair him with Rashaan Evans for years to come, I think that is the goal.
