The Tennessee Titans pulled off one of the best runs late last season after scraping into the AFC Playoffs on the last week of the season. Then, the Titans defeated the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens in back-to-back weeks in the playoffs. Although they lost to the Chiefs, Tennessee has plenty of momentum going into this season. Plus, they have the NFL Draft to add new players. Let’s take a look at who they picked.
Round 1, Pick 29: Isaiah Wilson – T – Georgia (6’6″, 350 lbs). Wilson adds even more depth to a stacked offensive line. He will compete for a starting spot at right tackle.
Round 2, Pick 29: Kristian Fulton – CB – LSU (6’0″, 197 lbs). Fulton adds even more depth to a stacked secondary. He will see some time at corner.
Round 3, Pick 29: Darrynton Evans – RB – Appalachian State (5’10”, 213 lbs). Evans is the change-of-pace back that the Titans need that can get to the outside. He ran for over 1,000 yards for the past two seasons in college.
Round 5, Pick 29: Larrell Murchison – DT – North Carolina State (6’2″, 297 lbs). Murchison will be added to the defensive tackle rotation because he can bring pressure (12 tackles for loss, 7 sacks). He will more than likely be used on passing downs.
Round 7, Pick 10: Cole McDonald – QB – Hawaii (6’3″, 215 lbs). McDonald will be given time to develop because he needs more consistency, but he had a good year at Hawaii last season (4,135 yds passing, 33 TD) despite throwing 14 INTs.
Round 7, Pick 29: Chris Jackson – DB – Marshall (6’0″, 186 lbs). Jackson will fight to make a roster spot this season.
Grade: Upgrading the offensive line and the defense will definitely help throughout the season. However, the Titans needed to draft at least one wide receiver. I give them a C-.
