The Tennesse Titans went 6-10 this past year, not beating a playoff team all year. A lack of consistency really plagued the Titans all year. Jake Locker, in his second season still wasn’t as consistent as you would like to see and Chris Johnson was really up and down all year. In 5 of the Titans games this year, Jake Locker was the leading rusher. The Titans had the worst defense as far as points per game goes in the entire league. They also only had the 23rd best offense in the league according to points per game. Even though the Titans had the 9th most sacks in the league with 39, their starting DEs only had 12.5 combined. They need consistency from their entire team next year.

Barkevious Ming0 – Derrick Morgan finally started to show why he was a first round pick a few years ago, but Kamerion Wimbley was terribly inconsistent. He played really well at times, but also played really poorly at times. The Titans also have no quality depth behind those two. Mingo would help solve all of those problems. He would give them someone who has great pass rush ability who would probably be used much like Bruce Irvin this year because of his lacking ability against the run game. However his potential as a pass rusher can’t be denied and This would give them the ability to slide Derrick Morgan, who is around 280 lbs, inside on passing downs and putting Mingo as DE so they can get more pressure on the QB.

Chance Warmack – The Titans signed Andy Levitre which sures up one sided of the line, but they are still lacking at the other OG spot. Chance Warmack would come in and instantly give them another pro bowl caliber player on that offensive line. Pairing him with Levitre inside and Michael Roos and David Stewart at the tackle position could give them one of the best lines in the league instantly. Many draft analysts have Warmack as the top player on their board and getting a player of that quality at the 10th pick in the draft could be an absolute steal for the Titans.
