Tennessee Titans 2021 NFL mock draft: Dueling simulations
By Will Lomas
Here are the top two choices for the Tennessee Titans.
These two were really in a league of their own because they were the only players that didn’t tie another player in these simulations. One of these was force-fed to the Titans by one simulator and the other was the only prospect to get a vote in each of the simulators.
four picks (20%): Alex Leatherwood OT, Alabama
All four of these picks came from the TDN simulator and at first. Chalk that up to TDN prioritizing the need for an offensive tackle for the Titans. Strangely enough, Alex Leatherwood was the only offensive lineman that TDN mocked to the Titans which means that their algorithm must just really like the fit there.
three picks (15%): Rashod Bateman WR, Minnesota
As crazy as it seems, Rashod Bateman is the only prospect that got a pick from each simulator. It’s easy to understand the fit and the need here even though the value is a little off.
He doesn’t qualify for the Matias Wodner rule and many have their doubts about him, but the sole purpose of this article is to take bias and historical context out of it and allow the computer to tell Tennessee Titans fans what choice they would make after weighing need and value.
