Yes. If the Titans are going to draft a cornerback then they might hope that a good option is going to fall to them in the late second or early third, however, the way the board fell it was just more efficient to draft other players and figure out a way to get a stopgap later in the draft.
St-Juste is more of a developmental cornerback with ridiculous size and athleticism, but the Titans could go back to a defensive style that they used back in 2018. Then, they used to use Logan Ryan and Adoree Jackson as the CB1 and CB2, then they would bring Malcolm Butler on and push Ryan inside to the slot.
If they wanted to recreate this, the Titans could start Janoris Jenkins and Kristian Fulton, the move Fulton inside where he played the majority of his reps last season, and bring St-Juste on to be the boundary cornerback opposite Jenkins.
Is he a value?
No, this is the one reach I had to make in this mock draft but the top players left on the board were all defensive linemen or interior linemen and I couldn’t prioritize the value of a player that might not see the field for two years over a player who could help now and who could be an above-average starter at a premium position in two years.
