2. The Titans find CB help in the middle of the draft

The Titans must prioritize making upgrades to the offense in the draft but they shouldn't do it at the expense of neglecting the defense. One particular position group that could use a boost is cornerback. Even though Tennessee signed Sean Murphy-Bunting in free agency and Roger McCreary started all 17 games last year, it would be a good idea to add depth to the unit given the fact that both Caleb Farley and Kristian Fulton have missed time over the last two seasons.

The good news is that this year's class is stacked, so the Titans don't have to target at cornerback in the first round and can instead wait until the third or fourth to pick one. While it's true that prospects such as Christian Gonzalez or Joey Porter Jr. would immediately bolster the Tennessee defensive backfield, Tyrique Stevenson (Miami), Darius Rush (South Carolina), and Starling Thomas (UAB) would all be solid pickups with intriguing upside in Round 3.

There's a chance that Fulton and Farley finally put it all together and if that's the case, the Titans' cornerback unit could become a strength. On the other hand, the top brass can't keep waiting on either one and must add someone that can contribute if called upon, something both Fulton and Farley haven't been able to consistently do.

The worst-case scenario is that the Tennesse will add a depth player, which isn't necessarily a bad thing when you consider most teams need three or four quality corners nowadays. The best case is that they'll find a starter in the middle of the draft.
