Here are the answers to some of those Tennessee Titans draft questions.
Fans of the Tennessee Titans have started narrowing down their list of ‘acceptable’ players that the team could draft in a little less than a week from now. The problem is that every mock draft you see is being written from the author’s viewpoint.
One person’s 20th ranked player might be your 40th ranked player, and that could be because of the fact that you’ve seen them mocked later by other writers or because you have watched them and decided that you don’t like him as much as the consensus.
In an attempt to take the human element out of this, here are the opinions of a robot, well, not so much a robot as an algorithm.
Specifically, here’s what happens when the mock draft simulators from the Pro Football Network and The Draft Network run ten simulations with each program. Instead of choosing the Titans selection ourselves, here’s a deep dive into what the simulators say based on their programming.
Some of the results make a lot of sense and for the most part, they all adhere to the groupthink on what the Titans need. The most commonly drafted position was offensive linemen with eight of the 20 picks, but that was a little skewed by one simulator trying to force a fit. Wide receiver was the second-most common choice which was selected in five of the 20 picks.
Surprisingly, the cornerback position only got two votes, which tied it with edge rusher and defensive tackle. There was one lone pick for a linebacker, but it is a perfect fit so you can see why it makes sense. Out of 20 simulations, here were the results.
