Which position makes sense for the Tennessee Titans in round one?
Cornerback seems to be a deep and talented group for the Titans, so it really doesn’t feel like somewhere the Titans would invest a high pick in this season.
With David Quessenberry set to be a free agent at 31, tackle could be in play especially if Mike Vrabel keeps insisting on turning Dillon Radunz into a guard.
At EDGE, Harold Landry is going to be a free agent but considering everything Landry has done for the Titans they should absolutely re-sign him to a long-term deal and lock down the starting defensive line of Landry, Simmons, Denico Autry, and Bud Dupree.
If it does come down to the best tackle, EDGE, or receiver left on the board here are the other players to consider.
According to Brugler, the top tackle left on the board would be Nicholas Petit-Frere from Ohio State. That is interesting because he has played right and left tackle which adds rare versatility, and he is from Ohio State so you know Mike Vrabel would have the connections to do a thorough background check.
The top EDGE left on the board would be USC’s Drake Jackson who is a little bit of a project but has some nice traits despite average production.
If it came down to Jameson Williams, Nicholas Petit-Frere, and Drake Jackson, I think that Brugler made the right call. While the other two are solid, the dimension that Williams would add to the Titans’ offense would help take some pressure off of Derrick Henry in the future.
Given the job that the Titans have done building the depth on this roster, it is going to take a unique player to break through and get onto the field as a rookie. Out of that shortlist, it does feel like Williams is the one with the best chance to be special out of the gate.
