It's been quite an eventful offseason thus far, for the Tennessee Titans. Any fan worried about entering the post-Derrick Henry era should be proud of the moves this team has made.

Tennessee has made it known that they are building this thing around quarterback Will Levis, giving him whatever they possibly can in order to succeed in his second year as a pro.

Whether it's adding to the offensive line, signing Tony Pollard and Calvin Ridley or other underrated moves, the Titans are making waves. Now, it's time to revert to more draft talk and ask what their plan might be with the no. 7 overall pick.

In our latest mock draft, the Titans continue the trend and add even more talent around Levis.

It's only two spots, but the Titans know they will have some competition ahead of them when it comes to landing one of their top targets. So, they make a bold move up.

Tennessee deals a third rounder next year, along with a sixth-round pick this year, while swapping first rounders with Los Angeles. In the end, they grab the draft's best offensive tackle.

Notre Dame's Joe Alt comes in as maybe the most NFL-ready, polished offensive tackle this class has to offer. And, there are some great tackles in this class, so that's saying something.

Alt is built for the position, standing a towering 6-foot-8 and weighing around 315 pounds. He carries his size very well and moves impressively for his height. The guy can get out in space, no problem. He'll get to the second level, no problem. He's explosive.

Being in control of his body is what he does best. Whether it's overall flexibility or his knack for absorbing opposing pass rushers well, he's always in control. Alt is rarely beaten. He'll either take you on and absorb whatever you've got, or he'll wind up finishing you. There aren't many reps you'll see Alt lose.

This gives Levis a top-tier tackle to protect him (hopefully) for the next decade or so, assuming the franchise quarterback thing works out for him.
