26. Tennessee Titans: Zion Johnson, OL, Boston College

The Titans have a couple of key free agents on the offensive line and that is an area they need to continue to build moving forward.

In the later portion of the first round, it sounds like Johnson is going to be in high demand. With the Titans’ need for offensive line help in addition to the fact that Mike Vrabel’s son Tyler played with Johnson on the line at Boston College, I could see this fit in Tennessee to upgrade in the trenches.

Derrick Henry is the MVP of this team and drafting Johnson makes Henry’s job a little easier.

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Carson Strong, QB, Nevada

Tom Brady retired?

Nothing is official until it’s official, right?

If Tom Brady is actually retired or leaves the Buccaneers some other way, they aren’t going to be able to just move forward with Kyle Trask, are they?

I guess they might.

If they end up heading into the NFL Draft without a veteran solution, I like the idea of Carson Strong in the Byron Leftwich/Bruce Arians offense. Strong can push the ball vertically with the best of them and even though he lacks elite mobility, he’s got pocket poise and the ability to avoid pressure to make any type of throw he needs without a “clean pocket”.
