The Tennessee Titans will have many options in Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft.

After what could be considered by fans to be a successful 2021 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, one has to believe that it’s never too early to focus on 2022. It’s way too early to tell where Tennessee will be selecting in Round 1, but there might be some glimpses already as to where they might need positional or depth pieces.

Over the course of the past three drafts, Titans held the 19th pick (2019), the 29th-overall selection in 2020, and pick 22 in 2021. 2019’s selection was Jeffery Simmons. Georgia offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson was added a year later. Cornerback Caleb Farley was taken this year.

If the Titans wind up in that top-ten area in 2022 (let’s hope that they don’t), they could look into taking a quarterback. Might preseason Heisman favorites like Oklahoma Sooners QB Spencer Rattler or UNC’s QB Sam Howell be options? Current Titans signal-caller Ryan Tannehill just signed a four-year contract extension, he isn’t getting younger.

The fact of the matter is Tannehill hasn’t been anything more than average. He hovers around the middle of the pack in passing yards. Sure, while he can get the job done, he isn’t much of a playmaker, so for now, he’s solid. Still, if Tennessee can get their hands on a QB early on in this draft, he can be developed and, hopefully, transform into a younger, cheaper, and potentially better option.

Those are some ideas if the Titans pick in the top ten (and if Rattler and Howell become top-ten prospects). Here are a few ideas if they wind up picking in the 11th spot or later.
