What did the Tennessee Titans miss out on?
By all accounts, the Tennessee Titans came into this draft class with a needs list that looked something like this:
1. Wide Receiver
3. Tight End
5. Offensive tackle
Looking from the outside, the Titans have traded up to address their first need, double-dipped to address their second need, found great value for their fourth need naturally, and have addressed their fifth need with a high pick.
Playing devil’s advocate, you could say that based on pure value and need, they should have spent their 3rd round pick on a tight end to make sure that they filled all of their needs before focusing on overall value.
However, research shows that tight end is one of the few positions with a high hit rate on Day 3.
If the Tennessee Titans can finish this draft by adding a blocking tight end with some upside as a receiver and maybe another wide receiver, it is going to be really easy for Titans fans to fall in love with what Jon Robinson has done even if it doesn’t look the way they expected it to look.
