Tennessee Titans Day 2 picks

Tennessee Titans second round - Sedrick Van Pran OC, Georgia

The Titans currently only have five draft picks in 2024 but will likely have six prior to the draft because the Titans have a conditional seventh-round pick that probably won't transfer. After taking Maye in the first round, Tennessee can return to building its offensive line. An offensive line of Andre Dillard, Peter Skoronski, Van Pran, Daniel Brunskill, and Nicholas Petit-Frere might be close to a top-10 OL in the NFL.

Van Pran is 6'4" and 310 pounds and by the time he is done in Georgia, he will have had three years as the starting center against extremely high-level competition. He would be a Week 1 starter and be an upgrade over anyone the Titans would play at his position. Van Pran has excellent athleticism, a high football IQ, and a high motor. What else does anyone want in a center?

Tennessee Titans fourth round: Laiatu Latu EDGE, UCLA

Latu is capable of being a much higher draft pick but NFL teams could be concerned about his injury history. After starting well in his freshman year (when he was still at the University of Washington), Latu suffered a serious enough neck injury that he temporarily retired from football. Once medically cleared to play again, however, Latu has been a force.

In 2022, Latu had 10.5 sacks, 12.5 tackles for loss, and 9 quarterback hurries. He has the athleticism to beat NFL tackles and has developed enough moves to help an NFL team early in his career. There is a decent chance Latu does go higher than the fourth round, but as we all know, even a little bit of injury fear can scare many teams away.
