Tennessee Titans need to accept this truth about the offseason

The Tennessee Titans have a new coaching staff, a new front office structure, and they are completely overhauling their philosophy. In other words, this team is going to be rebuilding this offseason, which means there are going to be a lot of arguments about how exactly they should do it.

Those arguments are already taking place on social media, but there is one truth that everyone seems to be missing.

The truth is, things have lined up perfectly for the Tennessee Titans and there are going to be several ways that you can successfully start this rebuild.

When you look at cap space and draft pick value, the Tennessee Titans have the 8th-most "offseason capital" this offseason. Arjun Menon created a great visual for this:

While free agency is right around the corner, the offseason discussions have to center around the draft first. Right now the debate is between taking a tackle or a wide receiver (unless you are one of the crazy people who wants to waste a pick on a tight end).

The reason why you have a section of the fan base begging for Joe Alt or Ola Fashanu is because those are both top-tier tackle prospects that would almost certainly be top-five picks in any other draft class.

It is obvious why that would be enticing to the Tennessee Titans since they have struggled at the left tackle position dating back to when Taylor Lewan tore his ACL and never got back to being what he could have been.

Then you have another contingent of fans that want to add a real weapon to this offense like Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze. Just like at the tackle position, both of these wide receivers are getting high grades from the best draft analysts in the business. The only reason they are even an option for the Tennessee Titans with the 7th pick in the draft is because it seems nearly certain that three quarterbacks and Marvin Harrison Jr. will be drafted with the first four picks.

A new offense that will focus on getting pass catchers to...well catch passes, instead of focusing on blocking and special teams, should mean that the Tennessee Titans offense could be fun again. Developing guys like Chig Okonkwo and Treylon Burks would be nice to see, and combining that potential upside with DeAndre Hopkins and a great wide receiver prospect could finally give Titans fans something to be excited about.

Remember, this team isn't going to go into the draft with a clear need at either wide receiver or tackle. They are going to use free agency to bring in guys who are potential starters at left tackle or wide receiver, and then they are going to take the best left tackle or wide receiver available with the seventh pick in the draft.

Draft evaluations are never perfect, but there isn't a draft analyst out there who is going to say that the Titans made a bad decision if they end up with Joe Alt, Malik Nabers, Rome Odunze, or Olu Fashanu with the seventh pick. It then falls on the coaching staff to make sure that they get the most out of that player.

The truth is, there is no "right way" to rebuild the Tennessee Titans this offseason because there are going to be several ways to kick off this rebuild right. With an exciting coaching staff, a quarterback with a lot of potential, Pro Bowl talents at wide receiver, EDGE, and defensive tackle already on the roster, this is an exciting time to be a Titans fan. Everyone should have their opinion, but if they decide to do it a little differently than you would like (within reason), just get excited and enjoy the ride.
