After some key departures this offseason, we take a look at some players the Tennessee Titans should target late in the 2020 NFL Draft to fill some holes.
After the offseason that they have had, the Tennessee Titans should be very excited to get to the 2020 NFL Draft. In free agency, the Titans lost quite a few very important pieces from their 2019 AFC Championship Game run and will look to the draft to fill many of them.
After placing the franchise tag on running back Derrick Henry and giving quarterback Ryan Tannehill a rather rich contract extension this offseason, Tennessee couldn’t afford to keep some other really good football players.
The Titans were outbid by the Cleveland Browns for the services of former All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin, traded longtime Pro Bowler Jurrell Casey to the Denver Broncos for a seventh-round pick as a salary dump and have yet to re-sign dynamic cornerback Logan Ryan.
Additionally, Dion Lewis left in free agency and they have yet to come to terms with Henry on a long-term deal, leaving a need at running back. They also could improve at the wide receiver and edge rusher positions based on their play from a season ago. They did sign Vic Beasley from the Falcons, but they may still look to add playmakers on the edge.
In terms of 2020 NFL Draft picks, the Tennessee Titans are a bit slim. Owning just six total picks including two seventh-rounders and lacking a fourth or sixth-round pick, general manager Jon Robinson, head coach Mike Vrabel and the rest of the Titans’ decision-makers will have to nail all of their picks, including finding some sleepers late in the draft who could help their ball club.
