Attacking needs will be important for the Tennessee Titans here in the 2020 NFL Draft, so why would they start along the defensive line, a position where they have a plethora of talent right now?

Here’s why. The Titans look set on the interior with Jurrell Casey and Jeffrey Simmons, and while depth is important along the defensive line, I don’t see them thinking about that until day three.

So, the focus shifts to the edge. The Titans look like they have one side figured out with 2018 second-round pick Harold Landry, who possesses the burst and bend to win around the edge. On the other side, Tennessee has gotten plenty out of Cameron Wake in his late 30s, and Wake does have two years left on his deal. However, an influx of talent is necessary on the edge opposite Landry.

That’s where Terrell Lewis comes in here. Lewis showed a lot of promise as a pass rusher in the 2019 season. He has very good first step quickness on the edge and has good length and lateral agility to rush the passer in many different ways. His medicals at the combine will be key, and as long as things check out, he can sneak into the first round as he does here.
