Who could the Tennessee Titans select in the 2020 NFL Draft? Quarterback is in the discussion, but not until late.
It was a near cinderella season for the Tennessee Titans, having gone from a team on the bubble of making the NFL playoffs (a win in Week 17 sealed their berth) to within one game of the Super Bowl. They dispensed of the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round after narrowly edging out the Patriots in Foxborough. Unfortunately, the run stopped in its tracks at the hands of Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Titans enter a period of questions looming for free agency. Both quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry are pending free agents in March, and both will want significant deals. Tannehill played the best football of his career with the Titans in 2019, completing 70.3 percent of his passes with a 22 to six touchdown to interception ratio. He also put up a 117.5 passer rating. Tannehill’s play propelled them to the AFC title game, along with Henry.
Henry finished up the 2018 season at an incredible pace, reaching the 1,000-yard mark and finding the end zone 12 times. In 2019, Henry had his best season yet, with two amazing three-game stretches. In Week 17, he gashed the Texans for 212 yards and followed that up with 182 against the Patriots and 195 against Baltimore in the postseason. It’s clear he’s an important piece, but it remains to be seen how that works out.
It’s early, of course, but never too early to predict what the Tennessee Titans might do in the 2020 NFL Draft. Let’s take a look at one way this could shake out in April.
