Will the Tennessee Titans take a QB in round one of the 2022 NFL Draft?

Titans fans grow frustrated with each passing postseason that incumbent QB Ryan Tannehill fades away in the playoffs.

While the former Texas A&M standout has guided the Tennessee Titans to three consecutive playoff appearances, he’s 2-3 in the playoffs.

The past two seasons, the Titans couldn’t win a game in the playoffs. Tannehill threw a combined 2 TDs and 4 INTs in the playoffs and failed to throw more than 220 yards in either playoffs.

Things have begun to sour in Nashville in regards to the quarterback, but there isn’t much that can be done… yet.

The 33-year-old has a dead cap hit of $57.4 million for the 2022 season and just $18.8 million next season, according to Spotrac. He’s under contract until he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2024.

If the Titans want to get ahead of the game, they can draft his replacement this season to watch how to approach the game and how to prepare for a game.

Tennessee currently owns the No. 26 overall pick in the draft. Would they go after Matt Corral if he becomes available or Desmond Ridder in the late stages of the first round?

The Titans have shored up most of their weakness during the offseason. They can afford to take a gamble with their first-round selection and why not if the right QB is there on the board for the taking.
