Bleacher Report recently listed the ideal first round pick for every team in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, and offensive tackle Joe Alt from Notre Dame was listed as the dream selection for the Tennessee Titans.

Tennessee possesses the 7th overall pick in the draft, and there's been some buzz about them potentially upgrading the offensive line with a player like Alt. Here's why B/R thinks it would be a match made in heaven:

"The most technically refined tackle in the class, Joe Alt is the type of player you draft, start and don't have to worry about for the next decade.

"His addition would fill an immediate need at left tackle for the Titans, and it would also showcase one of the premier left sides of the line of scrimmage with 2023 first-rounder Peter Skoronski aligning to his inside shoulder. . . . If QB Will Levis is the future for Tennessee, selecting Alt at No. 7 is a great way to keep your young signal-caller's blindside clean for the road ahead."

Adding talent on the offensive line should be a main goal heading into the draft for the Titans, so it's not surprising that their "ideal" selection would be an offensive lineman. The Titans were also recently mentioned as a solid landing spot for top tight end prospect Brock Bowers, who could potentially provide second-year quarterback Will Levis with another weapon to work with.

Bowers is projected to be a popular player on draft day, but there's a good chance that he'll still be available when the Titans are on the clock with the No. 7 pick. At that point, Tennessee's front office would have to decide whether they'd rather add a lineman like Alt, or add Bowers.

Even if they don't add to the offensive line in the first round, it seems very likely that the Titans will address the position at some point, and maybe with more than one selection. In addition to the seventh pick, the Titans also have pick Nos. 38, 106, 146, 182, 221, 227 and 242 in the draft.
