Tennessee Titans Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022
– Did the Titans do enough to take the team from great to a Super Bowl? Not really. They lost AJ Brown, but in the trade to Philadelphia they got a slew of draft picks. That might pay off later, but this doesn’t seem like a draft for the right now, led by …
– Malik Willis. How soon will Ryan Tannehill be a Colt or a part of someone else’s offense? That’s what the amazing value pick of Willis should set in motion for a team that appears to be looking for a more dynamic option at the position. But …
– Again, this seems more like a rebuild/rework draft than one that’s about to put the Titans over the top. It might be a step back to take a leap forward, but it’s hard to make a monster immediate splash unless Treylon Burks does for the offense what Ja’Marr Chase did for Cincinnati – that’s asking for way too much.

Tennessee Titans Needs, Pre-Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022
Draft analysis to come on the fly next weekend during the draft.
– The Titans need to nail the first round pick – 26th overall – without another selection until the 90th overall selection. There are four picks from the fourth round and on – that’s where they can go with bulk prospects for a need – but this draft is all about what happens at the 26.
– There wasn’t much from the free agent market to help the offensive line for the future, but there’s enough there to be okay if a superstar is available at wide receiver or at some other position. It’s a deep draft in the first round, and value could be more important than position.
– A good running back option is a must to go along with Derrick Henry, but that’s what those later round picks are for. A slew of good backs should slide on down into later value slots.
– So who’ll be there in the first round for Tennessee? Just how far does Northern Iowa OT Trevor Penning slide? Is versatile lineman Kenyon Green from Texas A&M going to last this long, and could Boston College OG Zion Johnson be an idea?
Maybe to all, but for a team that really, really, really needs a No. 2 wide receiver who could rise up and rock as a possible 1, Ohio State’s Chris Olave or Treylon Burks from Arkansas would be the right choice at the right time.
