Once again, an Alabama running back is the key to the Titans draft
By Will Lomas
Is this going to be a blockbuster trade?
Now when I say trade down, don’t expect crazy compensation back. Looking at the Rich Hill model for draft pick value, the Titans pick is worth 253 points.
So, what could some trades look like from interested teams? Well here is what interested teams might have to give up to get near that value:
Pittsburgh: 24th overall (1st round) and 118th (4th)
Buffalo: 30th (1st) and 86th (2nd), Titans give up 116th (4th)
Atlanta: 35th (2nd), 68th (3rd), and 162nd (6th)
Miami: 36th (2nd), 50th (2nd), and 81st (3rd), Titans give up 116th (4th)
And since we are in draft season, I am going to show you what a fun 2021 NFL Draft class could look like using the same Dane Brugler/TDN combination that I used yesterday.

2nd round, pick 35: Christian Barmore DL, Alabama
2nd round, pick 50: Rondale Moore WR, Purdue
2nd round, pick 54: Jordan Smith EDGE, UAB
3rd round, pick 81: Ambry Thomas CB, Michigan
3rd round, pick 85: Patrick Jones EDGE, Pittsburgh
3rd round, pick 101: James Hudson OT, Cincinnati
In that scenario, the Titans get to add real talent and depth to the EDGE position opposite Harold Landry while also bringing in a replacement for Jack Crawford and/or DaQuan Jones.
Thomas has good size and he would be a nice potential replacement for Adoree Jackson or Malcolm Butler in 2022 while he develops and gets back into football shape after opting out last season.
On offense, the Titans get an athletic tackle who played under Mike Vrabel’s BFF so there won’t be any question about his commitment this time around, oh and they get Rondale Moore who is one of the most dangerous weapons in the game when healthy.
