2021 NFL Draft: From the college perspective, Tennessee Titans draft analysis, all the picks, best value selection and biggest reach.
Tennessee Titans 2021 NFL Draft Analysis
– For a team that doesn’t always crush the value side of drafts, this is pretty strong. The Titans needed a corner, and it took the mild chance that all the medical sides of things work out for Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley at the 22 – he’s a top 15 talent, at least. It was a need position, making the call of Washington’s Elijah Molden at the 100 a good one – throw prospects at the problem.
– They needed offensive line help and only got one prospect – but he’s a good one. Dillon Radunz is a versatile blocker out of North Dakota State who should get a shot at tackle right away, but he’s it. They had a eight picks and needed to at least throw a flier at another lineman.
– Again, though, value. Pitt pass rusher Rashad Weaver in the fourth was a strong call, and getting Georgia LB Monty Rice and Louisville WR Dez Fitzpatrick were nice mid-round gets. Even Oregon S Brady Breeze in the sixth might work.
Best Value Pick: OT Dillon Radunz, North Dakota State, 2nd round, 53rd overall
Biggest Reach: (There wasn’t really one, but … ) WR Racey McBath, LSU, 6th round, 205th overall
Late Flier That Could Work: DE Rashad Weaver, Pitt, 4th round, 135th overall

Tennessee Titans 2021 NFL Draft Analysis: Pre-Draft Analysis
The Titans did just fine on the field even with a complete and total bust of a 2020 NFL Draft – at least for the first year – starting with the to-put-it-way-too-nicely misfire on Isaiah Wilson with the 29th overall pick. This time around they have four of the top 100 picks and a chance at a reboot. And now …
They still need help on the O line. That should be there. They still need more for the secondary after last year’s draft picks haven’t done enough yet. They still need a running back who can rotate with Derrick Henry, and they still need a receiver who can add something on the other side of AJ Brown. They still need a lot for a team that’s strong as is.
The team is in a good draft position with value almost certainly going to be there at positions of need. Everything should be right there with a whole slew of wide receivers there for the taking at the 22, and a few good offensive linemen – even if they’re second-tier – around at the 53. Tennessee can get better in a hurry after this weekend.
