The Tennessee Titans find key pieces in the NFL Draft.

Like free agency, this is only a list of the projected starters from the 2021 draft class unless they replace a particularly important rotational player.

1. Caleb Farley replaces Adoree Jackson.

Fans were very split coming into the draft whether the choice should have been a receiver like Elijah Moore or a defensive player like Caleb Farley, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Jaelen Phillips, or Gregory Rousseau. The Titans opted to go with Farley with eyes on his freakish upside and position value (more on this later).

2. Dillon Radunz replaces Dennis Kelly.

This was one of the most surprising picks in the draft because it looked like the Titans were comfortable with free agent pick up Kendall Lamm starting at the right tackle spot. However, now it looks like the Tennessee Titans are hoping that their young right guard and right tackle tandem can help pave the way for Derrick Henry.

3. Elijah Molden replaces Desmond King.

Kristian Fulton is still very much in the conversation for one of the starting cornerback spots whether he is on the boundary replacing Butler or Adoree, or if he is inside replacing King. Having said that, Molden is a slot specialized who the coaching staff raved about and whose tape is full of eye-popping plays.
