Once again, an Alabama running back is the key to the Titans draft
By Will Lomas
Some Titans draft talk.
Breathe it in Tennessee Titans fans, even though it is disappointing that Mike Vrabel’s squad had an early exit, it is the (second) best time of the year.
While we wait for the 2021 cap room to be announced sometime near the Super Bowl, all eyes are on another bowl right now. Down in Mobile, Alabama, the NFL Draft community is buzzing about the rumors they are hearing from their sources inside teams.
One rumor that hasn’t slipped by me is the Najee Harris love fest.
Seemingly every day another team gets connected to Najee Harris who is becoming a lock for the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
There was a little bit of a stigma on Alabama running backs for a while, but there was this guy named Derrick Henry who started taking the league over a couple of years ago that blew that narrative out of the water.
Henry showed again this year that he is fully capable of being a workhorse for the Titans and if they want to give him some rest they have former top-100 pick, Darryton Evans, returning this season. So, why am I saying he is the key to the Titans draft?
