Let’s get one thing right, it is way too early to know for sure how the players from the Tennessee Titans 2022 draft class will pan out in year one.

It has been a mere three weeks since the draft happened, and as far as their NFL careers are concerned, all we have to judge are the first two days of rookie minicamp and a few plays made during OTAs.

Even if we cannot fully answer this question at least until training camp begins, the general sentiment is that the Titans drafted very well this year. And based on what we know about the players themselves and the team’s history under Mike Vrabel and Jon Robinson, there is enough information to get a good idea of how these rookies will fare in 2022.

Like the last two years, this class is likely to have players who emerge later in their careers than others. In 2020 rookies like Kristian Fulton, Teair Tart, and Aaron Brewer, didn’t look nearly as good as they did in 2021.

Similarly, players from the 2019 draft class like Amani Hooker and David Long were afterthoughts early in their careers and it wouldn’t be difficult to see both of them compete for Pro Bowl spots this season.

The big difference is that this class has some players with a chance to make an instant impact as well. Let’s look at the timeline of the rookie class.
