Titans land unexpected weapon for Will Levis in this 2024 NFL mock draft

A trade back equals... unexpected value?

Last year, the Tennessee Titans thought they were fortunate to have seen quarterback Will Levis fall to them in the second round.

Now, they're looking to build around him as the team's franchise quarterback.

In an offseason where the Titans will look at moving on from Derrick Henry and are lacking playmakers around Levis, adding talent on offense has to be priority, specifically through the draft.

The Titans hold the no. 7 pick in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, but could obtain some additional capital if they opted to trade back just a bit. In this mock, that's exactly what they do.

The Titans move back just three spots in the first round of this mock draft, but also net a third-round pick in return. This is significant because of the trade with Arizona last year, which saw Tennessee give up a 2024 third rounder. Now, with the 10th overall pick, Tennessee finds some incredible value.

The Titans have tried to find a true, number one wide receiver over the last couple of years. Whether it was by drafting Treylon Burks in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft or signing DeAndre Hopkins last year, they've made attempts.

Now, they make a third attempt which should wind up panning out, selecting Washington's Rome Odunze at pick no. 10. With Marvin Harrison Jr. and Malik Nabers off the board by now, Odunze is the clear-cut no. 3 wide receiver in this class, but he is highly capable of becoming the Titans' no. 1 target. There is no way he should have been available past the eighth pick, but the Titans will gladly take him.

Over the last two seasons, Odunze has led the Huskies in receiving with a total of 167 receptions for 2,785 yards and 20 touchdowns. He's also added a pair of rushing touchdowns along the way.

The 6-foot-3 Odunze is a big target, but he's also a smooth route runner. He has all the tools to become a top wideout in this league, whether it's breakaway speed, the ability to gain yardage after the catch or overall body control. Odunze has the knack for making acrobatic catches on the regular, and his dominance in college, as a whole, should translate well to the pros.
