5. Dylan Moses, MLB, Alabama
Starting middle linebacker Jayon Brown is in the final year of his contract, and if we’re being honest, this season, he hasn’t played well enough to earn an extension. What makes things worse, he isn’t even the biggest problem the Titans have at linebacker right now.
Dylan Moses out of Alabama could end up being a solid selection if he falls to the Titans. He had a very good 2018 season as a sophomore but tore his ACL right before the 2019 season.
He has bounced back from the injury and has had a solid 2020 campaign so far. A player like Moses would add a bit of an edge to the Titans defense, and can certainly be a disruptor in the running game.
Pairing him with fellow Alabama alum Rashaan Evans would make for a solid duo in the middle of the Titans’ linebacking corps. The two played together for a season in 2017 and that familiarity should make things easier for Moses to learn the playbook and help Evans play better himself.
The injury issues certainly are a cause for concern, but his overall talent is well worth the risk if the team decides to move on from Brown.
