What if the Tennessee Titans pick later in Round 1?
If the Titans fall to picks 21-32, the argument can be made that they should snag an edge rusher. There is no specific name for this spot. They should just nab the best pass rusher on the board.
With a weaker defense, and as you know, the Tennessee Titans definitely fall into that category with their defense being ranked as one of the worst in the NFL, the Titans must make it a priority to focus on defense in the draft.
They’ve taken Elijah Molden, Kristian Fulton, and Caleb Farley in the last two drafts, so their secondary no longer becomes a focus as they wait for the young guns to develop. That leaves us with a discussion about the linebackers and the defensive line.
This team got nothing out of Jadeveon Clowney, and in the 2021 offseason, the Titans signed linebacker Bud Dupree to partner with fellow linebackers Rashaan Evans and Jayon Brown. They still lack a consistent pass rush, so dare we say that, if the Titans are picking in the latter stages of Round 1 and if a solid pass rusher is available, shall we say that should be Tennessee’s selection?
As it always is, the Tennessee Titans’ first-round selection in 2022 will be important. Every position could use some depth and or better players. Taking an edge rusher should be a priority, but taking a wide receiver or a quarterback could do the trick as well.
We’re a long way from answering those questions though. Next up for Tennessee is a divisional matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts.
