The Tennessee Titans had a hell of a run this past season, but now it’s time to turn their attention to the draft. After going (9-7) in the regular season and losing in the AFC Championship game, the Titans organization will dive in and see what players can help improve an already talented Titans squad.
Areas Tennessee needs to improve in
What areas do the Titans need to improve in? Well, for one, they can use some more pass rushers. As a team the Titans ranked 14th in pass defense, and they also ranked 25th in run defense. If the Titans want to be a legitimate contender next season, they must draft another pass rusher. But to be specific, the Titans should draft an Edge rusher.
Another area they will need to improve, is at Corner back. With Logan Ryan being a free agent and expecting to get paid around 12-15 million a year, Tennessee should walk away from that and look to the future. Ryan, who is 29 years old was a great leader for the defense, but if the Titans are smart, they would walk away from retaining him, and saving money to make way for more assets on their defense.
Now on the offensive side of the ball, the Titans will look to retain both Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill before they even start to look at prospects for the offense. With that being said, the Titans need a couple of more play makers on the outside. They hit with A.J. Brown last season in the draft, and should look to add another dynamic wide out to pair with Brown for years to come.
And the reason I say that is because, Tennessee only won one way in the postseason. That was by running the ball and winning the time of possession. But when they ran into the offensive juggernaut that the Kansas City Chiefs are, the Titans could not come back when they were trailing. In a vacuum, the Titans need to become a more versatile team, and they can do that by adding more playmakers.
Johnson who stands at 6’0” and weighing in at 190 pounds, he has the makeup of your prototypical NFL Cornerback. He will fill the void at Cornerback if Logan Ryan is to not get signed. Johnson will bring his instinctive and physical Cornerback play to the Titans. He also is very good at running down the field with opposing receivers, he has that ability because of his high-end speed. He is expected to go early in the second round.
The Titans should want to go for an Edge rusher in the first round, and if they do, they should draft Yetor Gross-Matos. He has the size and athleticism to reek havoc in the backfield next season for the Titans. Matos will immediately make an impact if the Titans are to select him in he first round.
Hill, who is a more mature wide-out, looks to be a play maker once he steps foot in the NFL. He is a silky smooth player who does well when it comes to getting pressed on the line. He will add another aspect to the Titans offense. He’s the play maker the Titans need to spice up the offense. Expect Hill to be selected late in the 3rd or 4th round.
