When the Tennessee Titans decided to pass on wide receivers with their first five selections of the 2023 NFL Draft, they insisted that they weren't done making moves.

Three weeks have gone by and it doesn't appear that they had any sort of concrete plans on who they were going to add or how they might add them. Still, they have time to make some moves that could actually help them in time for the 2023 season.

One move that they have hinted at is finding players from the other football leagues and bringing them in over the summer.

Since the XFL just wrapped up their postseason, it makes sense to look and see if they have any standout receivers that could help the Tennessee Titans.

There are a few names that have made my shortlist, but the one name that stands out the most is Jahcour Pearson from the Seattle Dragons.

What would Pearson do for the Tennessee Titans?

He is small (listed at 5'7" and 178 lb.), but he led the XFL in receiving yards and he did it on a team with Josh Gordon. The only reason why that is relevant is that Gordon dominated at times with his height and athleticism, but it was Pearson who was more productive and consistent. While he had some volume, the thing that makes him an intriguing NFL talent is his speed and his ability to create yards after the catch.

When I say that he is an intriguing NFL talent, you should take my word for it, but you don't have to because he has already been invited to three NFL minicamps. The Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, and San Francisco 49ers have all had him on the field getting a look at what he can do.

Two of those teams should set off alerts in your head because there is a LOT of coaching and front office overlap between the Tennessee Titans and the Falcons and 49ers. If they are interested in a receiver, then the odds are that the Titans should be taking a look as well.

While Pearson wouldn't fix the Titans' receiver issues by himself, having another potentially dynamic weapon to pair with Treylon Burks, Kyle Philips, and Chig Okonkwo would undoubtedly help an offense that will have many moving parts.

The big question is whether or not Mike Vrabel is still hung up on having receivers that are good run blockers, because other than that it is hard to find a reason why someone like Pearson wouldn't be a no-brainer addition to this anemic group of pass catchers.
