After reaching the AFC championship game last year and falling short, the Titans may be a few roster upgrades to making the big game. Here are some of the positional draft needs that may give them the extra edge that they need:
One of the most important positions the Titans will have to address is the need for an OT. With the departure of Jack Conklin the Titans will need to grab an offensive lineman that will protect Ryan Tannehill. Dennis Kelly was resigned this off-season and will probably get an opportunity to start but the team will need more security moving forward. I am keeping my eye on Josh Jones out of the University of Houston to fulfill this need.
Harold Landry is starting to emerge as a solidified pass rusher as he had a career-high nine sacks last season. The team also brought in Vic Beasley who in 2016 had 39 combined tackles and 15.5 sacks. He has not matched those numbers since, perhaps he will thrive in the new Titans system. Yetur Gross-Matos out of Penn State could add some depth to the rushers that the team desperately needs.
Derrick Henry has proven himself to be one of the premier Running Backs in the national football league. But the Titans can not only depend on the legs of the feature back every single snap. Dion Lewis left in free agency and wasn’t a viable back up. Just like the other positions of the team, depth is going to matter and adding another back can help strengthen the roster.
Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson have the most veteran experience on the roster. With questions surrounding where Logan Ryan will play next season, a cornerback will be top of the needs for the organization. Trevon Diggs out of Alabama would be a fit for the team who has great length and press skills and is the younger brother of Bills wideout Stefon Diggs.
