Three biggest losers of the 2022 NFL Draft

2. Ryan Tannehill

Another huge loser of draft weekend was Ryan Tannehill of the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans shipped AJ Brown to the Eagles for one of their first-round picks, which obviously is a huge blow for Tannehill.

They drafted Treylon Burks with that pick to try and replace Brown, but Brown is also an extremely talented player, so there’s no guarantee that Burks can get close to Brown.

Not only that, but the Titans also drafted Malik Willis in the third round, presumably to replace Tannehill in the future.

Tannehill will be 34 this upcoming season and had a down year statistically, even though the Titans went 12-5 and secured the #1 seed in the AFC.

To add insult to injury, the Titans drafted Malik Willis before addressing the offensive line, which needed some big help.

Ryan Tannehill was asked about Malik Willis recently, saying it isn’t his job to mentor him.

Willis is a project that will surely take at least one year to develop if he does at all.

The drafting of Malik Willis does signal to me that the Titans are looking to get a bit more out of their quarterback situation.  With the massive crop of young, talented quarterbacks in the AFC, it’s no surprise to see Tannehill’s days could be numbered.

With the drafting of Malik Willis, lack of notable investment in the offensive line, and the trading away of AJ Brown, Tannehill sticks out as a loser of draft weekend.
