5 prospects the Titans should consider early in the 2021 NFL Draft
1. Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pittsburgh
The Jadeveon Clowney experiment in Nashville has been a complete failure as far as pass-rushing goes.
As of writing this article, he has zero sacks on the season and he wasn’t even the worst free-agent EDGE the Titans signed this offseason. That honor obviously belongs to Vic Beasley who was released. The third EDGE signed/re-signed this offseason was Kamalei Correa and he wasn’t good enough to take playing time from either of them, and he was traded a few weeks ago.
The Titans need to add another young pass rusher to the mix in order to aid Harold Landry, who has been by far the team’s best pass rusher so far this season (for whatever that’s worth).
Rashad Weaver would be a big addition to the Titans defense. The 6’5, 270-pound edge rusher had an impressive 2018 campaign racking up 47 total tackles, six and a half sacks, and two forced fumbles. He would, unfortunately, miss the entire 2019 season after suffering a knee injury, but so far in 2020, he’s gotten back to his 2018 form.
Weaver currently plays in a 4-3, but he has the size and athleticism to play in a 3-4 scheme and would be a perfect fit across from Harold Landry.
