5 fun or practical targets for the Titans in the 2021 NFL Draft
By Brady Akins
Practical: Trevon Moehrig, Safety, TCU
Another talented player at another position of need for the Tennessee Titans. After parting ways with starting safety Kenny Vaccaro in the offseason, the Titans now find themselves in need of a replacement alongside Kevin Byard.
TCU’s Trevon Moehrig could be the guy for the job. He might be just a junior, but the Jim Thorpe Award winner was good enough to earn some starting experience by his freshman year. He ended the 2020 season as the player he showed the promise to be when he first began the college game, ending with two interceptions, nine passes defended, and enough highlight-reel plays to earn a bid to the AP’s Second-Team All-American group.
Even if safety is something of a boring position, Moehrig does have some excitement to his game. Similar to Byard, the TCU safety has developed a reputation as a ball-hawk in college, hauling in seven interceptions in three seasons with the Horned Frogs. Moehrig was a value on special teams as well and earned TCU’s Special Teams Player of the Year award as a freshman.
Moehrig’s versatility, along with his value at a position of need, could make him a compelling draft selection in the first round.
