The 2020 NFL Draft is getting closer by the day, which means we will see more and more mock drafts on who the Tennessee Titans will be drafting.
NFL mock Drafts are always fun, and they give us, as fans, an opportunity to look at who some of the experts think that the Tennessee Titans will draft.
The Draft Network has released its fourth seven-round mock draft simulation and the Titans can easily save a draft pick, but first, who did the Titans draft in this mock draft?
In the first round, the Titans used the 29th overall pick to draft cornerback Jeff Gladney from TCU. Already we see the Titans draft a corner in this mock draft. The Titans do need another player in their secondary for depth, but they don’t have to use a first-round pick to do that.
All the Titans have to do to fill that gap is re-sign Logan Ryan. I don’t know what the reason why the Titans aren’t trying to keep Ryan or even why no one else wants Ryan, but the Titans could probably get him fairly cheap right now, and then they don’t have to use a first-round pick on a corner.
That’s likely not going to be the only player the Titans will draft for its secondary. The draft simulator has the Titans also drafting corner Kindle Vildor out of Georgia Southern with the 174th pick in the fifth round.
Vildor would probably be a pick; I’m not saying either of these guys would be bad picks, the Titans could simply fill the hole they need to fill by re-signing Ryan, not using two picks hoping at least one works out and can replace Ryan.
The Titans could use that first-round pick on an offensive lineman to replace Jack Conklin, or another defensive lineman or edge rusher, or maybe if they’re feeling risky, then they could go after a running back to backup Derrick Henry.
The Titans need to simply re-sign Logan Ryan, and they can take that need and get rid of it or at least lower it on the list instead of wasting a first-round draft pick on hoping a player will be as good as Ryan to fill that hole.
