The 2021 NFL Draft rolls into its final act on Saturday, May 1st at 1 P.M. EST on ESPN, ABC, and NFL Network. Six picks remain for the Tennessee Titans, and if the first three rounds are any indication, there figures to be a ton of intrigue for fans of the two-tone blue.

Tennessee took cornerback Caleb Farley in Round 1 before turning in the draft cards on Day 2 with the names Dillon Radunz, Monty Rice, and Elijah Molden on them. What might they do on Day 3? We shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to find out what the answer is.

Here’s a little Tennessee Titans intel on the new guy.

Former Washington Huskies standout Elijah Molden is a five-foot-ten, 192-pound cover guy whose size and skillset probably means that he transitions into the role of slot corner at the next level.

In 32 career games at the collegiate level, Molden crafted an impressive resume that, from a statistical perspective, boasts 153 total tackles, five interceptions, 19 pass breakups, four forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. His bloodline screams NFL as he’s the son of former New Orleans Saints cornerback Alex Molden.

There’s reason to smile if you’re a Tennessee Titans fan.

Tennessee double-dips at the cornerback position in their first four picks, so yes Titans fans, they’ve heard your cries. Now, with the addition of Janoris ‘Jackrabbit’ Jenkins, Breon Borders, and Kevin Johnson and with the return of Kristian Fulton to the lineup (he missed a ton of time in 2020 with injury), the Titans are sitting pretty.

Oh, and then, there are the safeties. The Tennesse Titans lost Kenny Vaccaro on March 5th, and they added Matthias Farley on March 25th before defensive back Chris Jones was added on April 17th.

The secondary is filling out quite nicely in Nashville. Now, on Day 3, we’ll see if the Titans use one of those six remaining selections to add something else Tennessee’s faithful has been clamoring for, a wideout. We won’t have to wait too much longer for an answer.
