The Tennessee Titans enter the 2023 NFL Draft with plenty of needs and not enough ammo to address them all. However, that doesn't mean they can't find a handful of difference-makers with the picks they hold.
General manager Ran Carthon has his work cut out and might need a couple of seasons to fully restock the roster but the Titans should be able to come out of the draft in better shape, especially if a couple of all of these dream scenarios play out.
4. The Titans avoid using a draft pick on a kicker and sign one afterward
Having the right kicker can be the difference between winning a losing a football game and Tennesse can't say with a straight face that they have a long-term answer at the position.
Caleb Shudak signed with the Titans as an undrafted free agent last year and he's currently the only kicker on the roster. Given his limited experience, the team's brass should strongly consider bringing in someone to compete with him.
Having said that, the front office can't afford to use one of their late-round picks, even their seventh-rounder, on a kicker. For starters, this year's batch of kickers isn't particularly enticing and even if they liked one enough, there's a strong chance the Titans might be able to sign him once the draft is over.
If Tennessee had an extra pick in Rounds 6 or 7, it would then make sense to use it on a kicker but they will probably be better off adding a pair of developmental prospects late in the draft.
