1. The Titans shore up at least two spots on the O-Line on Draft Day

The Titans are undergoing what can be best described as a soft rebuild, meaning that they're trying to remain competitive while making meaningful changes to the roster. Earlier this year, left tackle Tyler Lewan hang up the cleats and Tennesse parted ways with center Ben Jones, offensive guard Nate Davis, and linebacker David Long Jr., all of whom were key contributors last year.

On top of that, Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry have been the subject of trade talks throughout the offseason. Although there's a chance the Titans end up moving on from them, it makes more sense to keep them around for at least one more year and address other units, such as the offensive line, which is in need of an infusion of talent.

The Titans signed Daniel Brunskill in free agency but even if he's the starting right guard in Week 1 as projected, they need to fill the voids at center, left guard, and right tackle.

Nicholas Petit-Frere, a third-round pick in last year's draft, started 16 games in 2022 and could line up at right tackle next season. However, Tennessee could target an offensive tackle in the first round to compete with him. Among the prospects that will likely be available when the Titans are on the clock at No. 11 are Dawand Jones (Ohio State), Broderick Jones (Georgia), Darnell Wright (Tennessee), and Anton Harrison (Oklahoma).

So let's say the Titans do take one of the aforementioned prospects, they should double dip and target an interior offensive lineman at No. 41. Steve Avila, who can line up at both guard and center would have an enticing pick in that slot.

Next. A Titans trade that makes too much sense. dark

Using back-to-back picks on the offensive line isn't the kind of strategy that will get fans hyped up but it will ensure that whoever lines up under center (probably Tannehill) will have optimal protection in 2023.
