Successful drafts aren't always about having the most efficient process and drafting the best player available with every selection, and the Tennessee Titans proved that in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Every team says that they drafted the best player on their board and that they got phenomenal value, but it just isn't true. Instead, those teams either took players at positions of need or players that a coach stood on the table for and convinced the front office to ignore the board and draft him.

That isn't always a bad thing, but if you do that too often you are going to end up with a team full of reaches and very few star players. The good news is that if the Titans are lucky they will have a chance to find a star at the top of the second round thanks to 6 first-round quarterbacks pushing other players down the board.

If the Tennessee Titans want to get back on track and get the most value out of their second-round pick, these are the 10 names that would be plus values.

The 10 BPAs on Day 2 for the Tennessee Titans

1. Johnny Newton DT, Illinois
2. Cooper DeJean CB/S, Iowa
3. Jackson Powers-Johnson C, Oregon
4. Kool-Aid McKinstry CB, Alabama
5. Adonai Mitchell WR, Texas
6. Ladd McConkey WR, UGA
7. Zach Frazier C, West Virginia
8. Keon Coleman WR, Florida State
9. Edgerrin Cooper LB, Texas A&M
10. Tyler Nubin S, Minnesota

Purely based on the best value, these are the best players but some of them don't quite line up in a way where they can be instant starters.

Ran Carthon and Brian Callahan both said that they believe that J.C. Latham is going to play left tackle as a rookie. Combining that with the assumption that Nicholas Petit-Frere is going to be given a real chance to win the right tackle job, it would seem like the Titans' need on the offensive line is tentatively solved.

You can also probably scratch out cornerback so high considering the offseason commitment they made to Chidobe Awuzie and L'Jarius Sneed.

Even with those restrictions, that still leaves Johnny Newton, Cooper DeJean, Adonai Mitchell, Ladd McConkey, Keon Coleman, Edgerrin James, and Tyler Nubin as viable options for the Tennessee Titans.

In fact, the board is falling well enough for them to where the Titans could even make a trade down if they wanted to add more value.
