The Tennessee Titans still have needs to address in the 2020 NFL Draft and trade up to get their guy in this post-free agency 7-round mock draft.
The Tennessee Titans have been surprisingly quiet thus far in 2020 NFL free agency, only agreeing to terms with three players who donned different jerseys last season. Considering the team was only a solid half of football away from their first Super Bowl appearance in over 20 years this past season, you’d think general manager Jon Robinson would have chosen to have been maybe a little more aggressive this offseason.
Signing special teams ace Nick Dzubnar and backup/swing tackle Ty Sambrailo were fine under-the-radar moves. The addition of veteran pass rusher Vic Beasley Jr. also riskily addresses a major need for the team. But the rest of their work has been re-signing their own, most notably locking up Ryan Tannehill to a four-year deal and franchise tagging Derrick Henry.
While the Titans may still be gearing up to add a big-name free agent, Robinson and the rest of the front office would be naive to rest on their laurels with how the roster is currently constructed.
Since taking over the personnel duties for Tennessee, Robinson has been anything but stagnant when it comes to the NFL Draft. His first draft in charge in 2016, he dealt the number one overall pick for a king’s ransom of picks and has continued to be active in every draft since. When looking at what the Titans will do come late April, that’s important to keep in mind.
The pass rush is the biggest need to address but cornerback, offensive line, running back and speed at wide receiver are all key to address in the 2020 NFL Draft. Even if there are veteran additions to come, it’s crucial the Titans add an influx of younger, cheaper talent. And that’s the goal in this 7-round mock draft after the first wave of free agency.
